Friday Drinking Thread

Submitted by clarkiefromcanada on January 25th, 2013 at 7:32 PM

Lots of reasons for potential drinking this evening:

  • Poggi anxieties?
  • Derrick Green "gonna shock the world"

This evening I am going to enjoy "the official canned beer of Duty Free stores everywhere"

So I've been going hard since 4pm. Started easy with some Yuengling, progressed to La Roja and two hearted before some Pinot noir with dinner. Now on to a bottle of biere de garde from the lips of faith series. Got to love New Belgium in Michigan. Best hangover cure and bday present will be a Hello post from Derrick Green in the morning. Go blue!!

So after the whole Te'o scandal, I thought about the next frontier of recruiting.  It's clearly "Auxillary Fake Girlfriends." or AFGs.

An AFG can be sort of like a bank account - a really hot bank account.  You have a sugar daddy, i.e. booster, wire money to the AFG.  The AFG can then give cash, gifts, sexual favors, etc. to heavily recruited athletes to whom they are paired up with - apparently it's not an NCAA violation if a girlfriend or family gives you benefits.  Voila - baby, you've got a pipeline goin'.

Maybe it's just the MaryJane talking but I think this system is guaranteed to be the next great recrutiing frontier - that is, if Ole Miss hasn't employed the strategy already.

Tonight I'm going Rye.  

Bells Smitten Golden Rye

Sierra Nevada Ruthless Rye

Founder's Red's Rye

Boulevard Rye on Rye

Then if I'm still awake I'll toss in an Oarsman Ale to wet my mouth up.


Tomorrow is all about me and my four pack of Black Note.

heart of Darkness. A very tasty stout.

I love these threads. I never fail to find a beer to add to my "have to try" list.

Porter by Brasseurs du monde in St Hyacinthe.

Unreal, brilliant. Love me a fine porter, all too rare.

Hmm...gonna open another bottle after all. Kids asleep...

Good question. Some Meijer locations are great for beer (see: Cascade Meijer in GR) while others are just decent. I would imagine they would have it, as I have even seen it at Family Fare locations. It's worth a shot!

as well as a decent Malbec and good bourbon.  Yes. triple-fisting.   And a buddy of mine wants to meet down the street in a 1/2 hour for a nightcap.

You do not wanna be me tomorrow morning, taking the boy to basketball practice.
