What are you drinking tonight, and is it enough?

I owe the collective dog pack of MGoBlog a heartfelt apology for all the snarky and dismissive comments I've made in the recent past about "what are you drinking" threads. Mea culpa, and mea gulpa.

To the point: A double Absolute Peppar martini with blue cheese olives. I will probably have another.

And yes, Voltron, I was looking forward to your neg. No MGoBlog post is complete without it. It's like ants at a picnic, and mosquitos at a campsite—you just accept it as part of the environment.

Siberian Husky. Probably not pure-bred but if mixed then not by much. That picture is pretty recent and he's a 4-year old male.

Wife and I were lucky, both of us have had huskies before and he's by far the best behaved we've seen. And by that I mean, he'll listen to us about two-thirds of the time. When he sets his mind to something though (walk/dog park/baying at the moon), there's no convincing him otherwise.

I got married in July, and I still have 7 cases of beer, 4 cases of wine, and 8 handles of booze.
Everyone can come over and be sad together.

Because to be honest with you, I'm not drinking anything tonight. I'm just not that upset anymore (I'm plenty upset with Brandon generally and what happened to Morris today in particular - for his sake alone - but not with the football team).

It became abundantly clear to me last year that this team was badly coached from top to bottom. The numbness just never went away. After the ND game this year, I realized that it's just better to avoid the games altogether.

Really, it's not even Brady Hoke's fault. There comes a point when you realize that someone who is unconsciously incompetent, but also refuses to acknowledge his weaknesses or blind spots, is simply in the wrong job. Of course he should be fired. It should have happened long ago.

Nope, this one falls squarely on Dave Brandon. He wanted this guy as his head coach. Well, he got him and paid top dollar. Brandon should be fired.

Because I'm trying not to get any fatter than I am now and because I can't handle hangovers very well these days. Plus, I need to be coherent and functional when I watch a really football team (Lions) play tomorrow. Getting older is weird...

Had great dinner of grass-fed burgers from a local farm - they were awesome.

Started with a New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc aperitif and a good Merlot with diner. Going back and forth with them now.

No change from the usual. I really expected this season to be bad... but damn, even in the bad Rodriguez years the team was fun to watch. Now, its just... just... boring. Incredibly, mind-numbingly boring.

You are forgiven. Welcome to the family. 

Kelso Industrial Pale Ale. 11.5%, the dude told me as my growler was just about full. Like a certain coach, I am gone.

Scotch. Surprisingly good. 

And no, it doesn't help. I feel a lot of dispair for the Michigan program right now. It's in complete and utter shambles and it's clear changes need to be made. But...change to what? I don't want another decade of mediocrity. PLease, God, no.

But this scotch is delicious, you guyz. Seriously.

A glass of red wine.  It was the least I've drank on a Saturday in a long time.  I took the wife out for dinner before the game was wrapped up.  I think I'm done with football on Saturday afternoons.  I love the team but is just making Saturdays miserable.  I ended up having a nice day when it was all said and done.

Canada House. Yeah, bottom shelf shit and I don't give a fuck. If the post about post-game locker room stuff is true, then fuck it. Honestly, if Peppers transfers, good for him. He doesn't deserve this bullshit if what Desmond said is true (being the only one who wants to be great). Hoke and Brandon should both be gone tomorrow.

I just woke up from what my wife described as a 45-minute "nap" from the first round drinking, and that was just a combination of wine and some beer (nothing fancy - Sutter Home White Merlot and then some Blue Moon), so while I have perhaps had enough by some standards, I am not sure that this is the case in reality.

What am I drinking - a bottle of truly crap

Red wine from Costco that my wife bought to cook with

Is it enough to forget what I just saw - sadly no, but I expect an awful headache tomorrow.
