Big game tonight as with the IU loss we have a shot at #2. To do my part I am tipping back some Bells Christmas Ale. Go Blue.

It's from Adam Carolla's podcast, enjoy the show thought I'd buy some.  It's basically Sangria with Vodka in it.  Got me through an early Christmas with the in-laws.

Almost like a coffee stout, but a little lighter.  Tastes a little bit coffee-like but that's because of the dark chocolate.  If you like dark chocolate you'd probably like this.  Me, I get the sampler for the Old Fezziwig and the Winter Ale, but of course the rest of it is solid enough too.

I checked Duke's schedule to see if they had any tough games coming up.  Answer: nope.  They will likely be undefeated for several more weeks.

Dealing with an annoying cousin by downing a Murphy's Stout. I've also had some Goose Island Christmas Ale, Short's Huma Lupa Liscous, some Bell's White Winter Ale and a couple glasses of a Spanish red. Hopefully moving on to Irish coffee after this gift exchange is over.

Huma Lupalicious for me, too. I picked up a couple sixes yesterday at Meijer and had a total savings of nearly $5!!!

Probably shoulda gotten a couple cases and bumped my savings up to $20 and financed Christmas shopping that way.

Wow I wish I didn't have to work tonight, I really don't want to miss this game. The Watch ESPN app is a joke, I can't believe they don't have directv as a provider or even dish. Sure it's probably contractual, but c'mon man. All I have is my phone for updates so I guess I'll be relying on mgoblog and the audio. Unless someone has a way of streaming the game on the iPhone???

Having some Grannysmith Woodchuck Cider as I wait for Michigan hoops. I would be more excited except my father-in-law had surgery for two bulging lumbar vertebrae today, so we've spent much of today dealing with that. All of us went to visit earlier today for  a while, but my wife, as she works at the same hospital, will visit on her own on break later.  

As always, Go Blue!

To be kinda a medical dork, it was probably surgery for bulging lumbar vertebral discs. To get to the discs, you typically chip away a bit of the back portion of the vertebra.

You can have surgery to the vertebrae themselves, but typically it's only for infection or a retropulsed fragment from a vertebral compression fracture.

Good luck to your father in law.

Picked up some Jolly Pumpkin last night (really happy I can get it in GR). Got some of the Noel, Bam Noire, and the Weizen Bam (sp?). Finished the Noel earlier, but I'm definitely looking forward to the others tonight.
