Especially since a brace is a pair of something, which is usually a good thing when it comes to ballz.

Got a sixer each of Left Hand Hard Wired Nitro Coffee Porter and Founders Azacca. We're probably getting as much snow as DC but the farmers have already been through a few times with their tractors to plow the road and my neighbor did my driveway with his skid steer. All I gotta do is drink some beers and sweep off the jeeps every few hours. Stay safe out there people, especially if you're getting iced.

Beefeater doesn't have that strong juniper taste. Excellent for g&ts. When it's warm out, make a gin & tonic with a lime slice, mix it with an equal amount of lemonade (yellow or pink), add a splash of cranberry juice, you'll have yourself a good drink.

Congrats man. I'm a little late to the party here, but I'm going for it anyway.
Financially, I agree that you should try to stock up on diapers; get a lot via the baby shower. Also, I've heard you can get a pretty good discount if you pre-pay the hospital for the birth - otherwise the bills just keep coming after you bring the baby home. I didn't hear about this until afterwards, so I don't know much about it, just maybe something to look into.
I didn't read any books, but my wife references the "what to expect" books from time to time. If you're having a hospital birth, you should go take a tour of the hospital. An Infant CPR class would also be a good idea, for peace of mind at the very least.
My wife got up with the baby every night while she was on maternity leave, but once she went back to work, we alternated nights. That way, no matter how many times you have to get up with the baby during the night, you know you're going to get to sleep the next night.
That's about all I got. You'll figure it all out. Babies aren't that hard.

I live in a rural area. I recently saw a rat in my garage and a couple in the barn. so I got some kittens last week to turn into rat maulers. they are too small to live outside quite yet so they are in an empty room in the farmhouse. I am sitting in the kitten room with a beer and there are kittens climbing all over me. it should be the greatest time of my life. but I find myself asking, what is life?

I live pretty close to Harrisonburg VA, the self-appointed beer capital of Virginia. Two breweries (Brothers and Pale Fire), another on the way (Wolfe Street), and a satellite taproom room for Three Notch'd. Pale Fire and Brothers both make really good stuff, but I don't think they distribute far. Otherwise, I'm usually drinking Dogfish Head, Ballast Point, Lagunitas, Firestone Walker, Bells, or my own poorly-made stuff.
Only tradition I can think of is saving a Hopslam for Michigan's opening kickoff every year.

I've been saving some Hopslam for a special occasion. This is a special occasion.

I visited there too, and we didn't have time for a plantation tour but we grabbed some stuff at the airport to take home. Cafe Britt is a great brand, reasonably priced and readily available on Amazon. They have a really good light roast that I'd recommend.

Butcher block is beautiful. The maintenance isn't really that bad. You can install it yourself. You can then reinstall it yourself 5 more times before it costs as much as granite. Over time you might scratch it, ding it, gouge it, but that's what makes it YOURS. I love mine. You should at least consider it.
|28 weeks 21 hours ago||Live stream?||
Any possibility of a live stream? Even if it's just audio, I'd grab a beer and tune in.

In the mid-00's I worked at a body shop that specialized in imports. We'd have to make sure they ran like new after fixing them. The fastest I drove was done kind of 911, but the M5's could really rip. I feel like the quickest was a Subaru STI. The slowest was probably a Defender 110 but I'd give a pinky to own one.

Waterloo Sunset by the Kinks. Or anything else by the Kinks.

Especially about breed. We rescued a 6 month old Anatolian mix, so she still had to grow out of the chewing on everything stage. Maybe go for one a little older. We are gone all day but she gets the mud room to herself, then 6 hours in the evening and all weekend to play with us. She's happy.

Just cracked a Firestone Walker Easy Jack. Never had it before - it's damn good. Their Double Jack is one of my favorites. Have a couple Ruination 2.0's in the fridge too.

I worked contract archaeology for a summer in North Dakota about a decade ago. The first weekend we were there, one of my roommates and I went to one of the two local bars in town. Being North Dakota, they had some weird shitty beers we'd never heard of in the cooler, so we started ordering them. Each time we got a round of beers, the bartender gave us free shots because she "made too much for those guys down there who ordered them." For the last shot (after 6 rounds of beers and 5 rounds of free shots), she said we could order a free shot, whatever we liked. So I told the red-headed bartender that I like Red Headed Sluts. While I was genuinely not hitting on her, she must have taken it that way because she giggled and skipped off to make our shots. From that first weekend in May until we left in October, we were at that bar 5 or 6 nights a week and never once were asked to pay for our drinks. We were never even presented a tab. We just tipped the bartender somewhere between $20 and $50 depending on how much we drank. I saved no money that summer.
Side notes, when it was closing time at the bar, they would just pour whatever was left of your drink into a solo cup and send you out into the street. The bar had a blackjack table in the corner that only seemed to be live after midnight. The bars in town sold pint bottles of hard liquor - this bar would sell you a shot of Everclear, but not a bottle; the bar across the street would sell you a bottle of Everclear but not a shot. It was a strange place.

I don't mind fall Saturday weddings. If a game is more important than your friend or family member's big day, then just stay home.
I don't mind when people refer to their favorite team as "we." Without fan support, college sports are all just club sports and there are zero pro teams. You are the reason for the team's existence - go ahead and say "we."
My definition of a sport hinges on two things: the ability to cause your opponent's failure (defense) and an absolute scoring system (no judges to be biased or bought). Golf isn't a sport. Bowling isn't a sport. Figure skating isn't a sport. Sports are played by athletes, but not all athletes play sports.

I'd have to say "Giant Spider Invasion" and "Jack Frost" are my favorites. "Jack Frost" seemed like a horrifically bad movie as well.

I used to say Moose Drool was my favorite beer, but I haven't had it since I worked in North Dakota in '04 so I'm not sure anymore. Good choice.
I went to the bottle shop and unknowingly got two brews from Brooklyn - Sixpoint Resin and Evil Twin Hop Flood. A few sips into the first Resin and I'm starting to think the names should be reversed.

Got some DuClaw Dirty Little Freak (coconut / caramel / chocolate brown ale) and some Clown Shoes Chocolate Sombrero (chocolate stout w/ cinnamon, vanilla, and ancho chili). Both pretty damn good.

I'm in semi-rural Virginia so I don't think I could find Shorts, but franziskaner is a possibility.

Hoping for a good reason to celebrate, so I'm heading to the beer store at lunch time. Anyone care to recommend something good / not too obscure?
|1 year 4 weeks ago||I've seen this one before||
and I never noticed that the eventual driver comes "sprinting" in from out of frame and beats at least 8 dudes dressed in white polos and khakis, one of whom falls directly on his face presumably when he reaches the cart's force field. I also never noticed that the last person still tumbling after the cart plows through the group loses his shoe so forcefully that it keeps rolling over 4 yards. In terms of stuff going on, this one is an all-time great.

Went to the local bottle shop here in Harrisonburg VA after I heard the news, got some Founders Dark Penance (probably some kind of meaning behind that one) and some Sweet Josie Amber Ale (one of those words is my 6 week old daughter's name). Never had either one, looking forward to celebrating!

This all reeks of the preseason, when motivational tactics ruled. Gardner isn't performing how he should, so what is Hoke's go-to sub-ass fire-lighting statement? "Your job is up for grabs." But the established starter always seemed to "win" that job. Maybe it goes so far as to bench Gardner for a game. Regardless of what happens tomorrow, I think he starts against Rutgers.

Combos are like pop tarts. There is really only one flavor. Nacho cheese pretzel is the frosted brown sugar cinnamon of Combos. Cheddar cheese pretzel is the frosted strawberry - acceptable, but you know something out there is better.

To expand on Mr. Berenson's chart, if VCU's opponent commits 15 or more turnovers, VCU wins. If the opponent commits 14 or fewer turnovers, VCU loses. This is excepting their last game against St. Louis.
Michigan has only committed more than 14 turnovers twice - at MSU and at PSU. So if VCU mugs the shit out of Michigan and nothing is called, or they start chucking no-look arm-punt threes with a hand in their faces that subsequently hit nothing but net, then we should all worry. Otherwise, I feel okay about the chances. Anything can happen, but I like our guys.
