What is everyone drinking tonight?

I am finishing my Christmas pack I made, Flying Dog K-9, Great Lakes Christmas Ale, and Thirsty Dog 12 Dogs of Christmas.

Have to finish the good shit before family covers over next weekend, guess it is time to go pick up some Yuengling.

JUST GOT INTO UM!!! Too young to get drunk, but I bet this feels better. Didn't get into my first choice, and it looks like I'll end up at UM, but I'm beyond fine with that. Growing up in Ann Arbor, UM has been my dream school for nearly my entire life. It's just starting to sink in how big a deal this is.... Its great! To be! A Michigan Wolverine!

First choice was Princeton (you may remember me from such frontpage posts as "Mailbag! Princeton!"), but I was rejected yesterday. I'm sill going to apply to two other schools and UM honors, but thats a worry for another time. For now, I'm celebrating!

Young (sir or madam),

Inspired by your message for my first post.  Just wanted to add a huge congratulations on your acceptance to Michigan.  There is, to borrow, no finer University in any aspect anywhere.  (Ok, I don't want to hear any reasoned arguments about MICU/Har-Yale's Program in endro-astro-socio-theory...you get the emotional point of the claim.)  

A quick thought.  More years ago than I care to admit, Princeton was my first choice before I went to Michigan.  Of course, we know it is easy to rationalize but looking back I feel endlessly grateful that I graduated from Michigan.  I have been fortunate, life has treated me well... You have the rest of your life (and the opportunity) to attend the most elite and often private institutions.  I had the chance after Michigan and am grateful that I have... but I will always be glad that my ALMA MATER is Michigan.  It is a school of which I am am forever proud as a great (tremendous) academic institution, while still being able to be proud of it being a public school (and all that stands for) and still be able to speak endlessly about football with strangers I bumb into in an airport while traveling.

Congratulations and GO BLUE.

With about 14 minutes left in the second quarter Montana goes for on fourth and a couple inside the twenty instead of taking the FG. They end up coming up three short after a good comeback. I hated the call when they did and although some CHARTS show fourth downs are too conserative in general, that has to hurt.

I would be at a party having a great time, but some use of foul language infront of my mother got me grounded for the night. Lesson learned, mumble swear words. It really sucks missing social events.

I'm a beer salesman yet, sadly, I've been forced to drink from an IV for the last two weeks.  Here's to (hopefully) getting out of the hospital tomorrow.

When I can have one, my first beer, however, will be a Brooklyn Black Chocolate Stout.
