Events / NHC Guide and Tips for a Newbie
« on: February 14, 2012, 07:25:11 AM »
I'm not talking about what speakers to see or what events to attend.  I am more concerned on the veteran's tips on surviving 3, possibly 4 or more days of drinking.

I know the old saying, "It's a marathon, not a sprint".  And believe me, my intention is not to get full out wasted...I can do that a lot cheaper at home  ;D  I fly in on Tuesday, hitting BN7 on Wednesday, then the conference events Thurs-Sat and fly home on Sunday.  I doubt I will ever leave the hotel/conference unless there is something close by.

What I would like to see are people's tips like drinking in moderation ( yeah right! ), drinking water between each beer, or what is you best cure for a hangover ( I think I heard a big, greasy breakfast does wonders for that), etc.  Any other tips would be appreciated.

Thanks and see you ( and Bigfoot ) in Seattle!!

49F and Sunny tomorrow with the day off...should I brew?  Oh yeah.

I'm brewing a Maibock and repitching yeast from a Munich Helles I kegged last Saturday.

That 1991 Manchester, NH always cracks me up.  But back then I was working Night Audit in VT and drinking Michelob Light.  I work in Manchester now ( and drink better beer ) and live just south of here.  The Verizon Wireless is about the only place big enough now but not much for hotels around, and none attached.

Maybe Boston one day but it won't be cheap I can tell you.  Too bad too, since the Hynes Convention Center has 3 major hotels connected to it ( Sheraton, Marriott, & Westin ) so you never need to go outside.

Glad you edited that.  Although with football season over,
it may be time to bury this thread until Tebow gets arrested for drunk driving.
Yeah...emotions were getting the better of me.


I wonder if wide receiver Tiquan Underwood would have dropped that ball.   
I wonder if he is related to this guy:

I'm curious if we will see the Philly conference sell out as fast.  It's always been my impression ( maybe not so ) that the biggest concentration of AHA members are in the West Coast/Mountain regions.  So it would figure those conferences would see out quicker.  I just don't know if we would get the same West Coast contingent if they have to fly all the way across the country.  That has been a factor for the last few years for me being on the East coast but I made sure to make it work this year.

Regardless, I will be on the PC 15 minutes before the conference goes online next year ( booked my hotel room 10 minutes before published time this year ), as will many others I'm sure so make sure those servers upgrades are in place.  ;)

But he is a cheater.  Not a "cheater".

No worries though, just like he "interpreted" the rule about not shooting video of the other teams signals to mean you are allowed to video the other teams signals, I'm sure he will be interpreting yesterday's loss as a win.

Wow...I stand corrected.  Thanks Tom, I've seen the light.  ;)  Belichick may be a cheetah though...I've seen orange dust on his fingers from time to time.

And there is no doubt in my mind that Sunday's game was definately a loss.

I like this one:



I think maybe Brady has changed his idol from Joe Montana to Jim Kelly.

No haters here.  Just people who have listened to it all season having a bit of fun at your expense.   :D

No problem...bring it on.  The thing about being a New England sports fan is we are usually the first to bash our teams when the don't perform...but we do love them regardless.

Besides...I've been taking it all season from Tom, haven't I? 

"Anyone get the score of last night' game?" 
"Belichick's a cheater"
"That's not what I asked"
"Belichick's a cheater"  ;D

No way DS.  You're not getting off that easy.  We've put up with months of your Hoodie/Brady lovefest.  You have to suck it up and take it all through the off season.  If I were in the Superbowl I would give anything to have my first play from scrimmage be intentional grounding from my own endzone!  Bet they didn't get that one from taping the Giants' practices.

Maybe we can post some Wus Welker Superbowl XLVI highlights for you.
You mean like this:


Trust me...I'm going to feel this one for a long time.  There's no doubt they didn't get it done.  However, the team wouldn't be where they were without Welker,Gronkowski, The Law Firm, Hernandez, Brady, Belichick, et al.   Even Ocho-Stinko had his moments.  But I'm not blaming an individual for this loss.  But they lost and are insignificant...what will all the haters do now?  :P

He's a cheater, and not just a bender.  You don't get a $500K fine (the max) for bending the rules, and he admitted doing it all of the way back to 2000.  Plus losing your team a first round draft pick and costing them $250K . . .

All three of the Pats SB wins came during Belichick's confessed cheating years.

No HoF for him.

Only time will tell I guess...funny how someone can get caught "cheating" in their sport and still be allowed to participate.

But now football is done until next season.  It sucks that they lost but it's just a game.  A few tweaks on defense and they will be right back there next year.

Can't wait to see Bill, Tom, and the Hoodie next season!

Go PATS!!!

The half time show was overproduced silliness. I swear I saw the one girl give the camera the finger. F#$k you too, b****!  ::)

Yep, she did.

Didn't watch the halftime show and never planned to.  I honestly cannot remember the last halftime show I watched.
Receivers did have butter fingers at times, but Brady was throwing behind them quite a bit too. 

Go Sox!!!!

Well that was disappointing... :'(

Obviously Gronk was not 100% and Welker put on bacon grease instead of stick'em.

Oh well, looking forward to seeing them next year trying to make it back to the big game.  Hopefully they get some secondary help in the off season.

Say what you want about Belichick...the hoodie will be in the Hall of Fame someday, right next to Landry's hat.

I have, thanks.
I can't imagine that many spots will open up.
I'll try an keep my head up...at least propped up by a pint.  :-\

I bet they will.  Life gets in the way sometimes or some may have bought they ticket and then realized how much it's going to cost in the end ( airfare & hotel ) and decide not to go.  Good luck.

You'll have to do it like the old MacWorld conferences...one for the East, one for the West and everyone in the middle can decide which one to go to.
