MgoDrinking for #2 in the Nation Thread
Janecyk is starting in goal tonight, one last effort to light a fire under this team.
Is it possible that Janecyk can be the new Hunwick...
I have Shorts "The Liberator" and New Holland "Dragon's Milk" in the fridge... its going to be a good night! Go Blue!
its seriously one of the most underrated beers ever. Its so delicious I think it might be on par with KBS, but so much less hyped and around all year.
I had Dragon's Milk a couple of nights ago...tasted like a boilermaker made with a good stout, with a heavily oaked scotch dropped in.
Great for a cold night...but gosh it had a kick.
Dragons milk is better Than KBs, and I am by no means a biased Michigander... I'm a wisconsinite
That stuff is effing delicious.
It's from Adam Carolla's podcast, enjoy the show thought I'd buy some. It's basically Sangria with Vodka in it. Got me through an early Christmas with the in-laws.
Would love to see Carolla again but don't have the energy for a podcast
Chocolate Bock out of the Sam Adams winter sampler.
Almost like a coffee stout, but a little lighter. Tastes a little bit coffee-like but that's because of the dark chocolate. If you like dark chocolate you'd probably like this. Me, I get the sampler for the Old Fezziwig and the Winter Ale, but of course the rest of it is solid enough too.
I love that one.
I checked Duke's schedule to see if they had any tough games coming up. Answer: nope. They will likely be undefeated for several more weeks.
Amazing what one will do for rankings that don't mean anything in a sport that hardly uses them.
But it would have been nice. Taking care of business vs. WV is all that really matters.
New Belgium "Snow Day." Visiting friends and waiting for 8pm to get here. Go Blue!
But I feel like they might give the Florida/ Arizona winner #2. Well at least if its Florida winning on the road
I don't think that would happen. Maybe if we had gone down in the polls at some point, even while winning, but that hasn't happened. If we win we will definitely be #2, especially if we have a strong showing against WVU.
Crown Royal, splash of water, wedge of lime.
Dealing with an annoying cousin by downing a Murphy's Stout. I've also had some Goose Island Christmas Ale, Short's Huma Lupa Liscous, some Bell's White Winter Ale and a couple glasses of a Spanish red. Hopefully moving on to Irish coffee after this gift exchange is over.
I had the Goose Island Christmas Ale earlier this afternoon and it put me in the holiday mood
Great Lakes Christmas Ale and Short's Good Humans
Huma Lupalicious for me, too. I picked up a couple sixes yesterday at Meijer and had a total savings of nearly $5!!!
Probably shoulda gotten a couple cases and bumped my savings up to $20 and financed Christmas shopping that way.
Wow I wish I didn't have to work tonight, I really don't want to miss this game. The Watch ESPN app is a joke, I can't believe they don't have directv as a provider or even dish. Sure it's probably contractual, but c'mon man. All I have is my phone for updates so I guess I'll be relying on mgoblog and the mgoblue.com audio. Unless someone has a way of streaming the game on the iPhone???
Off to a local italian restaurant; will be having some prosecco in honor of the future #2 MBB team
Coors light and lots of it.
Having some Grannysmith Woodchuck Cider as I wait for Michigan hoops. I would be more excited except my father-in-law had surgery for two bulging lumbar vertebrae today, so we've spent much of today dealing with that. All of us went to visit earlier today for a while, but my wife, as she works at the same hospital, will visit on her own on break later.
As always, Go Blue!
I hope everything is okay! thoughts and prayers for a speedy recovery
To be kinda a medical dork, it was probably surgery for bulging lumbar vertebral discs. To get to the discs, you typically chip away a bit of the back portion of the vertebra.
You can have surgery to the vertebrae themselves, but typically it's only for infection or a retropulsed fragment from a vertebral compression fracture.
Good luck to your father in law.
About to crack a Founders Breakfast Stout. Can't wait for this game to start. Go Blue!
Thread Jack, is anyone else having trouble with gifs playing in Chrome?
on my laptop (long-time satisfied Firefox user), but do have it (pre-installed) on my MotoAtrix HD Android phone, and I do have more than enough problems, enough that it has me considering replacing it with MobileFirefox.
Dolphin browser on Android is the way to go.
Picked up some Jolly Pumpkin last night (really happy I can get it in GR). Got some of the Noel, Bam Noire, and the Weizen Bam (sp?). Finished the Noel earlier, but I'm definitely looking forward to the others tonight.
I love the Noel. Good pickup.
Good Choice, Jolly Pumpkin makes some great beers! (I dont think I can say it enough, but we are so lucky to have all these great brewerys in our state ie. Founders, Shorts, Bells, Jolly Pumpkin, New Holland, list goes on and on...)
My favorite Jolly Pumpkin is La Roja or Calabaza Blanca. Both are fantastic!
Agreed on La Roja, terrific. I think the Noel is my favorite, but that might be because it's what I had the my first time out in Ann Arbor when I got there as a grad student. Won't claim it's the absolute best, but it's my favorite beer of all time mostly for sentimental reasons.
I was actually outside of Jolly Pumpkin today debating to go in and buy some Noel, but I decided just to pick up a bottle from my local beer store. I have heard good things, and I definitely am buying a bottle to split with the family on Christmas.
It's unique, which I like.
Also, if you're a fan of sour beers and ever get a chance to try Russian River's, do it. Not sure they're available outside of California/the west coast, but they're phenomenal, and the Noel reminds me of them.
Now I need to STOP drinking.
Was drinking it before b/c i feel like it
Got 6 more of the Budweiser Project 12's. They're not terrible I suppose. Go Blue!
thought you were saying we are #2 in the nation at drinking. I could buy that.
Alternating Bells Christmas Ale and gin and tonics tonight. Hopefully celebrating another Michigan W tonight
Dead Guy Ale in the 22 oz. size.
I'm drinking Steel Reserve and King Cobra!!!!!!!!
Okay, I'm lying.
I'm drinking 40s of Colt 45.
Billy Dee Williams is a pimp.
Dos Equis Ambar, Leinenkugel's Snowdrift Vanilla Porter, Noche Buena, and Session. I like making my own 6-packs, adds some spice to life.
Oak Aged Rumble
IPA with darker tones.
Been waiting for a special occasion.
I bought a couple of bottles to bring to a booze swapping party but had to back out due to studying for a tax final. Best wine deal ever. Have you tried the 2012 vintage ale?
Declined a dinner/improv comedy show date offer to sit at home, drink by myself and watch M hoops. Is that bad? (Note: my sister was in a really bad car accident and had two surgeries totalling 15 hours this week.)
You could have left the terrible portions out and I would have said, "no" its not bad. I hope she gets better though!
Beam and coke
Just had 3 Great Lakes Brewery Chrsitmas Ales at Panini's in Cleveland. Heading back home to watch the Bball game in peace.
Had plans to go down to Chicago for a xmas party but had to pull out at the last minute so I could study for a tax final. Not much drinking tonight but I might have a glass of Johnnie Walker later while intermittently checking the hockey and bball game scores.
had 3 christmas ales with dinner, now rocking out with a giant cup of sprite zero and loopy vodka. wheeeeeeee
Founders All Day IPA! GO BLUE!
Guy at work said it was great. He lied. Isn't the worst I have had but I would have preferred the regular over this.
The american honey wild turkey is actually pretty good. I know, I know, wild turkey? But it is good.
Woodford Reserve with Yuengling back FTW.
May I suggest Bulleit bourbon I like it better than Woodford Reserve but not as much as Pappy Van Winkle's
Drinking Shorts "the liberator" not a bad double ipa.
I started with a CBC Big Man IPA, and now I'm on a Heelch O'Hops by Anderson Valley.
Drinking New Holland Dragon's Milk, Lost Coast Downtown Brown and 8-Ball Stout, Darkhorse Boffo Brown Ale and Bell's Two-Hearted Ale. Celebrating The Victors!
Coming back to Michigan next week:
what Bell's brews are on the shelves? One of the liquor stores near my parents house always seems to have some of the specialty beers leftover (was able to score 3 six-packs of hopslam over Memorial Day weekend one year). Is Sparkling around yet? Can pick up Two-Hearted in Virginia...
so good, so smooth
