The Pub / Re: Football Season!!!
« on: September 06, 2012, 06:44:57 AM »
Terrible game plan/execution by Michigan. I never thought they would win but to get beat they way they did was pretty embarrassing. The only solace I take is that we were not much different than everyone else who plays Bama. Some recent scores:

    2011 Citrus Bowl: Alabama 49, MSU 7
    2011 Arkansas: 38-14
    2011 Florida: 38-10
    2011 Tennessee: 37-6
    2011 Auburn: 42-14
    National title game: 21-0 over LSU, LSU never crosses midfield.

We did better than LSU who was in the national title game. Alabama was legit. Both their defensive line and offensive line were NFL quality.

My nephew just started Graduate school at Michigan...I guess I better start paying attention.


Oh, and my fantasy football team started with a thud last night.


Let me guess...you have Victor Cruz on your team  ;D

Titan's have a brutal opening 4 games. I'l be happy if they win 1 of 4.

Just not the first one  ;)

Pats vs Titans on Sunday.  I can't watch the game live because my BIL roped us into going to the Red Sox game...I can't believe I'm dreading going to Fenway Park.  I think I'd rather watch the DNC... ;)

Thank God for Tivo!

Funny...I can't see mine, yours, or a whole bunch of others on the forum.  I do see a couple that look like they are linked from photobucket, but no uploaded ones.

General Homebrew Discussion / Re: Buffalo Wild Wings and home brew

I doubt they compare to the local bar and grill places (Wendell's Pub in Norton, MA is my local fave)

Man, Wendell's is AWESOME!!  I had a buddy who lived in Mansfield who took me there once.  I got some hot wings but chickened out on the Nuclear ( or whatever they were called ).  The only time I make it down there now is for Pat's games.  Glad to see they are still around!

WARNING: RANT
Seriously?  I thought this was about the Buffalo Wild Wings commercial...but any chance to bash the BN I guess ( some people still a little sore about US winning COTY 2 years in a row ). 

I always love it when people say "I never listen to the BN" but then tell you everything that goes on in the show.   Anyone want to bring up tech talk while you're at it?

I attribute most of my current success in brewing with The Brewing Network, and keeping the hobby interesting.  And this includes the "dick" jokes and immature behavior, as well as the tremendous information the brewcasters and their guests provide.  Not to mention the BN Anniversary party they throw before NHC.

I understand the comparison at making fun of homebrewing, but some homebrew is God-Awful ( Justin would say his is first in awfulness ).

RANT OVER

Back to the BWW...I don't think there are any around me so I doubt I will be trying them soon.  Besides, there are some many local places that do great wings...so much that I still feel the burn the next day  ;D

I love how you can say that Brett and Lacto are dinosaurs, but still make you way back to being a beer snob. 

Also, you can giggle at the "head" question and still be a beer snob.  It's like the old joke with competing with cider...how many entries in cider? (giggle giggle)

Yup. Sounds like a freak one-off to me.

Maybe this guy had something to do with it...

Wow...what great timing with this thread.  I was just looking at Beverage Factory today.  I can get two Perlick 525SS faucets for about $50 shipped, using their 2 tap custom setup and just select the faucets.

Kegging and Bottling / Re: 4 or 5 keg fridge
« on: August 30, 2012, 05:57:18 AM »
Just last night I put my new collar on my chest freezer, so now I can have 6 kegs going at once.  It is a 7 or 7.2 cu ft chest freezer with 4 on the floor and two on the hump.  I went with 2 x 8 collar with 1 x 10 on the front.  This gives enough clearance for the kegs to sit on the hump with connections and still allow the cover to close.

« on: August 29, 2012, 11:56:31 AM »
Wait a minute...How come you guys didn't tell me I needed to wear cool goggles to be a "real" homebrewer?

Mildly funny commercial...I am amazed they could get Zach Galifianakis though  ;)
