|13 hours 18 min ago||i neg the||
cowturd comments too..but certainly, this isn't the first or only fan base to come up with that nickname.
|16 hours 2 min ago||He had a shit ton||
to say...but you've probably already seen Ace's post.
EDIT: Doh! I misread your post...
i liked what he said too.
|16 hours 4 min ago||yes!||
I always forget the name, but I have had it. That, Two Hearted and Oberon are the three I've had.
|16 hours 15 min ago||there are a lot of smaller places||
I really like Alpine Beer Co., and the guy running it/owner is an egomaniacal jerk...I have friends who love that beer, but won't buy it because of the owner. But their beers, especially IPA's, are really phenomenal. THey just signed an agreement with Green Flash, so they will expand, and it will be interesting to see if the beers I like stay the same.
I also like Mother Earth and Societe. Those are top of mind. I like quite a few..and I'm really not trying to be a jerk. It is ridiculous how many good places there are here. BUT!! Admittedly, I'm partial to IPAs, and I don't really drink other things often, so outside of two hearted, and the other one (seasonal) that is wildly popular, and Oberon, I don't really drink many of the different Bell's Beer. And, obviously, it is just personal preference. So, just one person's opinion.
|16 hours 27 min ago||The other issue I've heard||
don't know if it is true...
Is his kids from his ex-wife obviously wouldn't relocate, and they are school aged (I heard 8 and 15, but again..don't really know). That would be tough, but even if he works for the Raiders, they're likely to move from SF.
|16 hours 43 min ago||damn..||
that doesn't sound so good.
I'll drink one for you...as usual...the girls from the car pool all ended up at my house, and we're now watching "Fred Claus"...so I think I'll have two.
|16 hours 45 min ago||Awesome!||
|16 hours 45 min ago||am I confused?||
or did you start a little early?
I'm a chick...aka "she"
|16 hours 49 min ago||A corvette...||
a music aficionado...intellectual, and hot?
Are you sure you're for real?
|16 hours 55 min ago||So, this will probably not be popular...||
but this kinda bums me out.
There is so much good beer in So Cal, and San Diego in particular, which is where I am. If I stack Bells up to my favorites out here, it is okay...a 7 of 10. But when I visit MIchigan, it is awesome! It is part of my trip home, and it is more novel. I don't have it all the time, and it just means I'm home, and I like it.
Don't get me wrong, I like it! Oberon in the summer is delish..and now I actually can buy it here, which is cool too..I just like when its more novel.
Congrats to Bells though! Good for them on expanding!

sitting in car waiting for kids...i need to be sober to deal with 4 6th grade girls leaving school for their winter break.
I will drink later.
|19 hours 12 min ago||no||
you must be drunk.
|1 day 1 hour ago||I don't believe Sam ever said the duration.||
He only guessed It was 8 years initially, and always said he wasn't sure. But that was based on some other stuff that wasn't related to the $49 million. Since he never confirmed a duration, I'm not sure why he would be back peddling?
|1 day 21 hours ago||is there||
a way to stream it?
|2 days 1 hour ago||I'm not fancy||
but I like beer.
|2 days 1 hour ago||Good luck with that...||
I'm right there with you, but if you can actually really be done reading them, please teach me how.
It's making me nuts too. I won't allow myself to get excited because the possibilities are so awesome, and if it doesn't happen the let down will be so depressing. But until it doesn't happen, I have hope. So I keep looking...ugh.
|2 days 1 hour ago||We're going||
to the circus together..but don't tell my kids.
|2 days 12 hours ago||You||
Know it. And Carlos is the hottest. I think it's either the mullet, or the cheesy lines.
|2 days 12 hours ago||Hey now||
Hands off my weiner.
|3 days 1 hour ago||geez||
I don't know that site, but that comment makes me believe I wouldn't enjoy it.
|3 days 1 hour ago||so true||
and it seems when they bring in those asshats, that really don't "get" the culture and identity that they are marketing, *this* happens. In this instance that article and the one in MLive, point out all the f-ups (imo) that were done in the name of "branding." The legend patches, the sky writing, the pricing, all the stupid shit that was done over the past couple years seems to be tied to this particular jack-ass.
So, thankfully he made those comments, and we can be done with him. He needs to go back to the NBA where his true talents in side-shows can be appreciated.
I also keep remembering Dave Brandon on that special that was talking about branding in athletics. While I get what all that extra revenue does for the athletics program, it compromised exactly what the "Block M" stands for. Tradition is not a bad thing, and a lot of people associated with the school embrace the tradition. Our athletes are part of it--and thankfully, Mr. Lochmann is not part of that.

|4 days 3 hours ago||I'm no expert||
I'm just making an assumption that I'm older than WolvinLA.... Pretty sure I have a good 2 or 10 years on him.
|4 days 12 hours ago||I seriously don't know how I missed this.||
Carlos? He's saying the time is near! Finally.
|4 days 12 hours ago||Hi honey..||
|4 days 13 hours ago||Just because the rumors||
are coming up with numbers, does not mean he will accept.
Everybody needs to slow down....no jinxing.
|4 days 13 hours ago||It isn't||
happening if you speak too soon.
|6 days 2 hours ago||"A source" said it||
but not necessariily a source who knows what they are talking about.
|6 days 2 hours ago||That is verbatim||
what he posted in a RUMOR BOARD on GBW. He created that board when the rumors floating around were contradictory and he wanted to control content because he didn't want stuff that was unsubstantiated on the other board. He wanted to make sure sources were legit before posting...so there was a huge uproar from people who thought he was sensoring other GBW contributors. The result was the Coaching Search Rumor Board--with disclaimers that their were primarily rumors that are not to be posted elsewhere. If it is posted here, there are disclaimers that the information is RUMOR only--someone said something--validity is really not known. So, people read this stuff, hear this stuff, and it's like a bad game of "Telephone".
|6 days 3 hours ago||we are all here||
looking for morsels of anything because the fact is, thing that include actual information, or even well sourced information are pretty non-existant at this point.
This is just another thing--like throwing us a friggin bone--a rumor, from who knows who. I don't know if it was anywhere else, or only on the newly created "Rumor board" on GBW. Which is a board specifically for unsubstantiated rumors, to keep them separate from well vetted sources.
So, posting this is fine because we all want to read something--but I'm not sure it's legit, and people dismissing Sam are ill informed and probably only getting headlines or soundbites from someone else regarding what Sam is actually saying. Did Sam actually "say" this, or is it only posted on that rumor board? Honest question--because that's the only place I read it.
