1) Pancheros is hands down the best burrito spot in Ann Arbor and BTB is wildly overrated.
2) Kang's is the only Korean spot worth stopping at.
3) NYPD has always been mediocre.

I'm not terribly upset but, like Matt Hinton, I'm generally opposed to anything that treats college football like the an NFL minor league.
|45 weeks 4 days ago||Anybody remember when ESPN||
Their programming decisions don't really bother me. I'd rather watch someone playing Counter Strike, poker, Magic, or pro beach hockey than listen to Mike and Mike any day of the week.
|45 weeks 5 days ago||Yeah, that's one thing that||
Yeah, that's one thing that kind of bugs me about Deschutes; if the beer really is that much better after the best after date why not cellar it themselves? At the price paid for the limited release stuff I don't really feel like they're passing on the savings.
So, the cognac is good. The barrel adds a great complexity and the aroma is spectacular. With a year or two on it might really become something special.
That said, the rye version is excellent right now. The spiciness is great and I'm always pleased to see a whiseky barrel that isn't bourbon.

My local bottleshop randomly got a late delivery of The Abyss aged in cognac barrels, so I bought a couple and can't wait to open one of them up.

Pulling a Deschutes The Dissident 2008 from the cellar.

Fremont Brewing's barrel aged Dark Star.
|1 year 22 weeks ago||Deschutes||
Deschutes does some really good limited batch stuff. I'm always chasing down their Abyss (a wonderful Imperial Stout that ages nicely) during the few weeks its on the market.
To the question at hand, I'm in Washington state and we've got a ton of craft brewers. This time of year I'm a sucker for a pumpkin beer and Elysian's The Great Pumpkin is always a good choice.

|1 year 27 weeks ago||I did the same thing.||
I had the rest of the trip booked and I didn't really feel comfortable going to a tiny stadium without tickets.

If I remember correctly he actually was a previous guest a long time ago. Back when Tim was around, Brian and Tim would try and get rotating bloggers from oppoisition schools to guest in the preview segments; I believe Matt Hinton filled in admirably for a mid-major without bloggers.

Everybody is familiar with the HBO options these days, so let me suggest The Knick or, if you're in the mood for something more full of pulp, Banshee.

As I live in Seattle, this is the happiest Michigan football has made me since the Sugar Bowl.

I donated $27.27 because I'm a masochist.

Those were a good series of games. I would pay too much money and waste hours and hours of my life if there was an updated version of that game with similar depth and syle of the Football Manager series.

3) Yes. Once there was an ill-advised mgo Spring Game Tailgate.
4) Egg-in-the-hole grilled cheese. Pretty delicous.

I disagree with the assessment of BS:G. It went post Jim and Pam hookup The Office shortly after the start of season three.

Look, I know what you're going for with the title post. But you can't title something Thirteen without then forcing me to think:

These days you have to roll again to confirm a critical hit.
I miss THAC0.

You were unaware that a buck seventy five is a crappy tip? Let's guess who has never worked in the food service industry before!
|4 years 31 weeks ago||Great||
This is great news. Maybe one day my dream of having a college football version of Fooball Manager will exist in a modern cohesive and functional form.
|5 years 5 days ago||Fitted||
I have a ginormous head so my choice was made for me. I can't fit into an adjustable one, so when I buy a hat I have to spend a great deal of time and energy tracking down something that looks good and is an eight.
It's a challenge.
|5 years 11 weeks ago||Babylon 5||
This has got to be the only credentialed sporting related anything that can work a Babylon 5 reference into a daily article. For that I say kudos, to you sir! On behalf of nerds who love sports, thanks for proving that football and Europa Universalis are not incompatible.
|5 years 13 weeks ago||But||
But what about the independent contractors aboard the Death Star? They're just trying to scrape out a living without worrying about left-wing militants going to blow everything up in a three-mile radius.
|5 years 17 weeks ago||Nope||
He is right. If MSU wins out there can't possibly be a three way tie at the top because Michigan has yet to play Nebraska.
|5 years 18 weeks ago||I'm just glad||
I'm just glad that someone other than me noticed that false start on the third down conversion shovel pass. The fact that I haven't heard any Wisconsin fans whining about it made me think I was hallucinating.
|5 years 19 weeks ago||Coordinators Speaking Freely Paranoia||
My inner-paranoid gets worked up when I hear Mattison specifically mention his assignments on the veer. Paul Johnson has made a career of figuring out who has the pitch back and then changing assignments to block him. I'm not a fan of making it easy for the opposing side.
Fort Schembechler isn't completely without value.
