A little condensation clouds up the photos, little to no head, but very tasty and refreshing for the 90 degree weather we are having

I guess its about the end of this thread. Because the PENGUINS WON LORD STANLEY'S CUP last night, beating the Sharks 3-1 for a 4-2 series victory. My playoff beard is gone til next Spring. Thanks all for tolerating for hockey fandom, it seems I'm about all alone amongst baseball and football fans. Thanks for playing along

Yep! Cheaters, drug dealers, rapists (suspected?) animal rights violaters and  thugs in general. Protected from day 1 by schools and teams looking to exploit their skills for the almighty dollar

The short side of what I am trying  to express is that the point of the regular season is to figure out who is good enough to make the post season and I don't personally feel that you need 162 games to figure that out. Just my opinion, and I know it's not the popular opinion

I understand financially that no teams/owners are willing to give up the money that comes with home dates, but as a fan, it should not take playing you rivals    up to 20 times per season to find out who is the best. Of its only about the fans enjoying the game, minor league is where it's at financially for me as fan. I remember watching Jim Thome and other Tribe greats playing down with the Akron Canton Indians back in the mid to late 80's I think. Let me tell you, they were playing some ball down there. Totally worth every penny, and at half the ticket and concession prices of the old Municipal  Stadium prices. And don't even get me thinking about current prices at The Jake (can't wrap my mind around calling it Progressive Field) The only games I went to in the last 10 years I was in Cleveland were on someone else's dime. Frequent comp tickets from the restaurant ownership and various vendors made for a great day at the ball park. I do agree that there is something to be said for seeing a baseball game at the field, but on TV, it's pretty tough to stay engaged for an entire game, at least for me. Anyways, back to my original thought: Lord Stanley's CUP will be in Pittsburgh on Thursday and if the Sharks somehow pull that one out, I will only be about 40 minutes away from the game on Sunday and may have to find a cheap ticket to the game. I went to Detroit for game 2 in 2009 and got $50 standing room only tickets to the game from a gut who won better seats from local radio station at a bar and we bought his tickets: Totally amazing night, unfortunately the Pens lost that game but in the end, they won the Cup in 7 games that year. GO PENS!

Not yet, only 3 years in, but I see it as a distinct possibility Jim

As to the Cup going back to Canada, there is a chance. There is enough $ available from the Canadian market, just need to focus it. Toronto should be huge, but total disappointment for over 20 years. With rumors of league expansion with it set up to make the new teams competitive in the first year through cherry picking the league's best, it could happen sooner than all think. We shall see

Jim, can you imagine the poor baseball fans that have to watch 162 games and then the olayoffs, ending in the World Series to figure out who the best team is? If MLB really wants to fix the game, shorten the season. There is no reason to play that many games except to see who can survive playing 25 games a month or more. Even hockey and NBA seem long at 82 games plus  post season. Not really a huge NFL fan, but I will always root for the Browns, but they have it figured out. 16 games plus playoffs. Even better would be like English Premier League soccer as well as all other countries top flight leagues: play every team twice, best record after 38 games is the best team. Quite simple, really, if not also a longish season

And here is the original version I got his recipe for. Nice and clear at the bottom, able to barely read the BBC logo and see the stripes on the far side. Only bottle of this batch I have opened, the rest went into the chest freezer to lager for a month this afternoon. This pic is less than 3 weeks in the bottle, less than 5 weeks since brew day. Very happy with it so far

Thanks again Ken, going to enjoy this one in the heat of summer! Which we saw a bit of today with temps in the low 90's

Just a quick heads up for all of the hockey fans on here: Lord Stanley's CUP is coming to Pittsburgh to stay on Thursday night. Penguins win 3-1 tonight to take a 3-1 lead in the best of 7 series against the San Jose Sharks. Here's to the final game being played on Thursday! And for all those non hockey fans, what were you doing tonight? No basketball to watch, tell me you did not miss the Stanley Cup finals for a baseball game?  The Cavs did not lose tonight, maybe they can come back and get into the series tomorrow in Cleveland.
