Flipping back between I Love You, Man and the Cup game... Just trying to occupy myself until football season...
Saturday Night Thread
That means summer is over. I love football, but if football is 2 months away forever I'd be happy.
I didn't mean that I don't like summer... I love summer, baseball, and everything that comes with it (except for the southern heat), but nothing beats fall and football season to me.
Chicago has looked a lot more active overall in this game. I'm still surprised they have only one goal.
I thought it was comical that NBC spent 5 minutes covering Krug's turnover in the first game, only to have almost the same thing happen for a rush in this game.
I've had a few Founders Centennials by the fire at Ludington State Park. Great night.
Spent the night watching the Griffins lose game 5 and drinking whiskey and cokes. Still have a 3-2 series lead but losing two in a row at home that could have clinched makes me nervous to go back to Syracuse...
Griffins are crapping the bed. They need to get their shit together.
Pretty much, things are getting kind of sketchy... butttttttt did outplay the Crunch tonight though, outshot them by like 30 just gave up good chances that Syracuse took advantage of when we didn't with similar chances
And I was sold. At a wedding reception in Columbus, Ohio bride and groom trolled by the good side of our family when the Victors played during the introduction of the groomsmen. All in good nature so it was fun to see.
but I'm sure you'll appreciate the cups I made at the end of May.
Got home early so I'm watching the Bruins-Hawks game, listening to Yeezus (it was leaked early, and it's phenomenal), and enjoying some beer (Short's Huma Lupa Licious) from our kegerator. A good, relaxing night.
Seriously, about to start it. The girlfriend just told me she's heard that it's totally different than his previous stuff and is a bit on the odd side, so I'm pretty excited to listen to this right now. Completely agree with your comment in the last music thread, Kanye is a douche but he's definitely a great musician (same tone as the general talking about Mel Gibson in Imaginationland).
Listented to it a bit last night!
I hate being the negative nancy all the time (amongst my friends) but I'm not sold on it being Great yet. I think it's really good and there are some production qualities to a handful of songs that are awesome (great). The first four songs + Blood on the Leaves* + Send it Up + Bound = Damn near greatness for the most part. Some of the lyrics are a bit of a joke though and honestly shi**y. I read where Rick Rubin said Ye had a few songs "written" all in ~2 hours; some of that shows if true. I can see Hold My Liquor being a big jam for many people but I found it a bit lame/sophomoric (again, more the lyrics than anything). Dude really got into being dirrrty for a few of these songs.
*Blood on the Leaves I've listened to about 7 times already...I dig it
Newcastle Founders' Ale.
The fiancé is off to NC for a week to see her sister so i cracked a few Dogfish Immort Ales and kicked back. I love her and this beer but this week will be awesome!
Phil Mickelson leads by a stroke seeking his first US Open after a record 5 runner ups. Quality names chasing including Luke Donald, Hunter Mahan, and Charl Shwartzel just one shit back. Promises to be a great final round.
By shit I mean shot
Rooting for Mahan, seems like a good guy and I will forever root for any and all of the Golf Boys
Completely agree! Would love to see Rickie make a run at it with a low round again today.
If anybody has dish.
So are Cinemax and Starzz.
Hell yeah, I watched Collateral last night and will be watching LA Confidential and drinking Hoegaarden later if I get to leave work before 1:00 AM CST.
Also on AT&T Uverse
Saturday night's all right.
Shiner Bock and Calc 2. Things are getting wild.
Eliot Ness and some Cup action.
It seems like Jagr has been frustratingly close to making some big plays all playoffs and just hasn't gotten a single bounce yet. I think he is still goalless for the playoffs despite playing very well. I just have the feeling he is due pretty soon. Guy is too good not to come through with this many chances.
Ommegang Hennepin and the Cup game.
I think Brewery Ommegang is slowly becoming my favorite brewery, every single beer is fantastic, plus Cooperstown is a fantastic area.
Boston really pressing hard here. Should be a power play for Boston on the delay of game here too.
EDIT: Nevermind, free stopage for Chicago. Should've been a penalty.
Quick chime in on the thread you don't like to talk,... about it!!!
Eagle rare 17 year, national bourbon appreciation weekend
I know that the players are tired, but there is still some great hockey being played tonight. The first two games have both been fun to watch and you can't ask for more than this as a neutral fan.
Rooting for Indiana in this game. Would be huge for the big 10 if they won the championship.
Drinking Odell 90 Shilling Ale and had some Altitude Mexican Chili Ale earlier.
Slick shot for Paille there, good series thus far.
That Bruins' fan down at ice level is going apeshit on the glass in celebration. That was a solid 30 seconds of glass smacking.
beautiful pass, and Paille took advantage. That play was just amazing, nothing else to say.
when I was playing nobody even kept track of hits, so I'm probably not your guy here. If I had a CenterIce bat signal I would put it up, but sadly I don't.
Also I wanted to tell you how sorry I was about the emails we exchanged a while back. I definitely thought I had replied to you with everything, but it doesn't look like it. I did do the stuff you had wanted, and Seth chimed in as well, but I guess the reply got lost in the shuffle. You'll have a reply by tomorrow night. Again, sorry for the non-response.
the guy who does Dear Diary and Hokepoints on the front page (among other things, I've been drinking for a couple hours and can't think of them off the top of my head), and he copyedits all of the front page content. I had asked him about your potential diary since that's his job description and he did some copyediting and had a few notes.
Drinking Deschutes beer at the Highlands street fair here in Denver. It's an Oregon beer which is weird since CO is supposedly the Napa Valley of beer. Whatevs, I'm here for the points
"I caught you a delicious bass."
Got a pair of 120min IPAs in the fridge I've been dying to pop, but I just don't feel that fantastic and don't want to waste one of them if I won't enjoy it. Instead, I've got some plain chocolate ice cream, I'm sippin some 1/2%, pickin' and a grinnin' on the Taylor.
Flipping over to the last suggestion from this thread (which, thanks for the heads up), "I Love You, Man." Aside from being funny just from the dialogue and cast, it always gets me that this is probably the best romantic comedy out there and they framed it as a guy trying to find a friend.
I love you Bro Namath.
More drunl then you, guy
I have never heard of a team trying to trade a coach. Didn't even know you could do that
The Blue Jays traded John Farrell for Mike Aviles this past off-season. I figure if he's under contract then I suppose it can be worked out??
