Carmel Greyounds

Congrats to my High School football team for making it to Semi-state. Those that don't know Indiana High School Football, Semi-state is the final four. A win this Friday puts the Carmel Greyhounds into the state finals. This was their first Regional Win since 1996 and it is good to see this storied program getting back to their winning ways. Go 'Hounds!

I seriously almost vomited.

I turned on the game just in time to see this. It was disgusting.

Long time no post

Ok, so I'm a slacker. I had finals and plenty of traveling to do so I have an excuse. Memphis has blown one of my predictions, but the season is still young... most will be blown by the end of the season. Michigan will be a stiff test tomorrow and I fear that I will have plenty of acid indigestion. Fulmer's fat face was just on the TV... God I hate that man. I have been drinking a bunch of new beers so I will try to add a couple of new reviews tomorrow. I guess I picked a good year to start rooting for Everton - Go Blues. Icehouse is starting to effect my train of thought. Later.

Here comes football!!!

So excited I can't hardly contain myself. I had the laptop out on the dinner table and I was playing a bunch of Notre Dame video clips so I could continue the indoctrination of my girls. Mainly stuff from last year, but also some historical stuff. Then the oldest asked if we could watch Rudy, so of course we did. I am so pumped. It's cooled off a little here in Memphis(mid 80's) so it feels more like football weather. Makes me want to put the pad on and go hit someone.
Talking out of my ass prediction #1: Notre Dame is 12-0.
Talking out of my ass prediction #2: Brady Quinn will win the Heisman trophy.

Talking out of my ass prediction #3: University of Memphis Tigers go 9-3 with a win at Ole Miss.

Talking out of my ass prediction #4: The Tennessee Titans Cheerleaders will be more entertaining than the Titans' Offense. Titans go 6-10. I hope Jeff Fisher can weather this last storm. Next year should be much better.

Stone Coast 420 IPA India Pale Ale

Stone Coast brewery was the other brewery included in my anniversary present. I really think that other than Stout, IPA's are my favorite beer. If nothing other than the IPA style of beer came out of the English occupation of India then I think it was a good thing. Seriously though this is a damn good representations of the style. A really beautiful beer, a perfect golden color with a nice foamy white head. The fragrance of the beer tells you that you are in for a treat. If you don't like hoppy beer, then stay away from the IPA style, and especially this beer. DO NOT mix this beer with another. You will not be able to taste the other beer. I think that says alot about just how powerful the taste of this beer is... and should be. This beer is not for those who like the standard "American pilsener" ie. budweiser, miller, etc. If that is all you have had in the way of beer, then your in for a real shock if you drink this or any other IPA. For those of you who like the IPA style, do what you can to find some of this, it really does the IPA syle justice.

Pippa - The Brit Chick

For the record Pippa and I can't be more different in our politics and views. That being said she is not anti-american or anti-semitic for saying them. I don't personally believe that someone who is not American should be calling for the impeachment of our president. Sorry but I think that is the right of Americans and basically none of your business if you don't live or vote here. I don't like Chirac among others, but if the stinkin French want him as their leader that's their business. Pippa, on a personal note if I ever get to go to England to see an Everton game I hope you will raise a pint with me and mine.

Everton it is

I don't really know why so don't ask for a reasonable explanation. I am officially declaring myself a fan of Everton.
