Friday Night Hockey, Beer, and General Drunken Foolishness Thread

Submitted by justingoblue on February 3rd, 2012 at 7:11 PM

Should be a good start to this weekend series. I took the plunge and got the premium Fox channels after buying a new TV yesterday, so I'm excited to see the game in HD and not just sitting on my lap.

As far as liquid diets go, I have a Hopslam or two budgeted for tonight, so I'm pretty excited for that as well. Let's share a good night with some hockey and some beer, capped off by a big M win.

like you. I've been working on trying different brands and different flavors lately. I'd say my go to right now is Al Fakher Guava. Great flavor, great buzz. I'm working on getting some Tangiers, which is supposed to just straight knock you off your feet with the buzz.

Have you tried Fantasia before? They have a lot of flavor with their's. Or if you want to try something new, Hydro Herbal gives the best flavor, in my opinion. No nicotine with that though, just herbs, so no buzz.

I was hoping a drinking thread would pop up tonight. 

I also have a couple Hopslams on deck, but I'm starting off with a Firestone Walker Double Jack (double IPA). I hate to say it, but it really gives Hopslam a run for its money. Highly recommended.

Gonna have to listen to the hockey game online. It's really the only sports thing going tonight since I can't get the Pistons here.

Can you describe the TV?

I have a Samsung too, love it. My wife (gf at the time) and I got our TV a few years back right before the Super Bowl, and the Best Buy salesgirl gave us shit thinking we were going to return it right after the game. What, and give up all those reward zone points? I don't think so, lady.

There's a Leinie's Fireside Nut Brown (or 2) with my name on it in the fridge.  I'm gonna crack that, watch a little of the hockey game, and then play the hell outta some Skyward Sword.

My gal just headed out of town today so obviously I am through nearly half a bottle of Jim Beam Rye.  Just debating when to heat up my chicken pot pie.

Let the hockey, offensive lineman announcements, and internet porn commence!

Dammit...after hearing your plans for the night, I'm disappointed I'm going out. No sarcasm, this has been a long week.

Filling up my cup tonight is Blanton's bourbon on the rocks (awesome apartment-warming gift from my brother, it's a "T" bottle for you Blanton's drinkers) until my friends show up, then it's Jim and 7UP.

I wanted to make White Russians last weekend and had everything I needed except the vodka was grape flavored. They were actually pretty tasty. So I'm trying that again.

I was reading a bit about it, Brian Cook is an absolute bad ass. I wish Bama had something like this, with more educated fans. That's the problem you run into on SEC forums, far too many of the posters are grammar challenged (for lack of a better term), and post general worthlessness.

This will be a good place for you to hang out, especially come August. Seriously, if you keep up the good posting, don't be surprised if you're asked to put together some sort of Alabama preview. One thing you can definitely say about this blog's readers: we always crave more information.
