EDIT: OT- Wednesday Night Drinking/ Other Sports Thread.

Submitted by MGoPietrowski on July 25th, 2012 at 6:40 PM

It's a very rare night in which there are a few things worth watching during summer. 

#1 The Tigers look to keep pace with the Sox who, with a win today, now sit atop the AL Central table. Lets get a win, Maxy. 

#2 (In Retrospect) Our girls got a W today over France in a comeback 4-2 victory. 

#3 Liverpool and Roma squaring off in Fenway.

#4 The MLS all stars taking on Chelsea. "This is a band of rivals, elected by the people, who have come together to defeat a common enemy." - ESPN

Between the laptop and the tele, I'll be keeping an eye on as much as possible.

Let's go Tigers, and Let's go Blue!

EDIT: Proposed that this is the drinking thread, too. I agree...

Let's make this a Wednesday night drinking thread too. I am at the wolverine state brewery tap room waiting for trivia to start. I am drinking a mug of a brown IPL called "the sins of carlito."

How do you like the beer?  I'm hoping to try some at the beer festival this weekend in Ypsi.

I'll be cracking a Lucky U IPA from Breckenridge after I get a bit more studying done.

Also: I'm pretty sure my GF is MC-ing your trivia game tonight in place of the normal guy- though she may be at a different location.

not sure what X did to earn automatic neg-bombs (& yes, I am too lazy to try & find out), but I can't hardly view anything he says ... how come when I click to expand his post, it automatically collapses back down a moment later?  anyone else experience that?  maybe it's a chrome thing.  er ... sorry for the OT ramblings.

Dragon: If you want to be able to click to view negbombed posts without them recollapsing instantly, it's always worked for me to simply refresh the page (just so you know, in the likely event that your F5 key has been reduced to smoking rubble during recruiting season, CTL+R also works)

What?!?! There's been trivia there this entire time I've lived within walking distance to that place? I love bar trivia. It satifies my urge to show off my knowledge of utterly useless things as well as my urge to drink during the week without feeling like an alcoholic...

Oh, I've just come to terms with the mid-week drinking.  That feeling passes with time.  You should go over there- the beers are good as is the trivia- they go on for awhile and the winning team gets a mug club membership, IIRC.

They make good beers there too.  I dig the Gulo, but I've not had as much an opportunity to have the various types dark lagers.  Seems like whenever I'm back in AA (no pun intended re: first sentence of this entry) we never made it over there.  I just hate the idea of having to drive back after imbibing for a couple hours.

I am settling down to some Leffe and the Tigers game, having breathed a huge sigh  of relief that I made it through my mid-year review with phrases like "encourages a spirit of collaboration" and "uses continuous improvement principles to drive change". I always  go into these with some anxiety, but I feel good about myself tonight, so good beer is only appropriate.

A 4 day football camp our team went too. Our team won Best Linebacker & DLine man awards. We Also won the bench competition with our 3 benchers putting up 15, 15, & 18 at 225. That came in 1st, 2nd & 3rd. I played a lot of varsity & was one of the 2 sophomores to even play varsity. Too bad my blisters are quarter sized. One of the PSU commits were there he pancaked me it was Andrew Nelson kid was a beast.

I atleast graduated from Natty to Busch light when I got to college.  No offense to anyone outside of college who still drinks it, but I'm at the age where if  I can't (or don't want to) spend the money to get something better than Natty ice/light and Busch, I don't think I should be drinking beer at all at that time or place. 

Of course, if it's not a monetary thing at all and you just prefer the taste of said adult beverages over others, that is a whole nother weird issue unto itself.
