I want to share with you two of the best stories I read this week, both of which appeal to my vile nature.

The first is from Scotland. A father named Pete Robson, starting in 1992, set himself the task of buying his son a bottle of 18 year-old Macallan every year for Matthew’s birthday. All told, he spent about £5000 over those 28 years, with the bottle price appreciating from £21 to £300 in that time.

 

Robson’s father explained, “I thought it would be interesting if I bought one every year and he’d end up with 18 bottles of 18-year-old whiskey for his 18th birthday.” Well, as a gift it’s pretty solid, but as a collection it’s appreciated in value. To the point where the son had the collection appraised & it is now worth £40,000.

So he did what most of us couldn’t – he sold it & used the money as a down-payment on a house. But he did what his father made him promise all those years ago – he never opened a bottle.

——————————–

The second story comes from Oxford, MS, where Ole Miss had a contest to put health care workers on their stadium cups, as a thank you for their service during the COVID crisis, and invited people to send in pictures of their medical professionals.

Well, some delightful smart ass sent in a picture of porn star Johnny Sins, “in character” from a Brazzers shoot.

I assume it’s leading towards some form of pelvic exam.

I don’t recognize the actresses, so it must be a fairly recent scene. In any event, all the stadium concessions IT interns saw was a guy dressed as a doctor, so they added him to their bank of heroes on the cup.

As always, the next move is Alabama’s.


Tonight’s sports:

  • NHL:
    • Dallas vs. Vegas – 8:00 PM | NBC / CBC / Sportsnet
      • Game 4 – Stars up 2-1
  • NBA:
    • Rockets vs. Lakers – 8:00 PM | TNT / TSN4
      • Game 5 – Lakers up 3-1

On a personal note: thank fucking Christ the Raptors have been eliminated.

You’re welcome, my child.

I don’t know if I can adequately express to American readers how awful Canadian sports media is – and I’ve tried before – when there is a Toronto team succeeding. It is an all-out knob-slobbering that makes the very bottom tier at Pornhub look classy.

Now it’s just the Blue Jays and WHO WILL THE LEAFS SIGN?!?!?!?! until November.

  • NCAA: – NOTE: La Tech vs. Baylor is postponed due to the ‘rona
    • Clemson at Wake Forest – 7:30 PM | ABC
    • Tulane at South Alabama – 7:30 PM | ESPN2 / TSN2
    • Coastal Carolina at Kansas – 10:00PM | FS1
  • MLB:
    • Detroit Tigers at Chicago White Sox – 7:00 PM | FS1
    • Cheatstros at Dodgers OR Cleveland at Minnesota – 8:00 PM | FOX
  • Fútbol:
    • Liga MX:
      • Tigres UANL vs. Santos Laguna – 7:55 PM | UNI
  • Left turns:
    • NASCAR:
      • The Federated Auto Parts 400 – 7:30 PM | NBCSN / TSN
  • Face punching:
    • UFC Fight Night: Waterson vs Hill
      • Prelims – 6:00 PM | TSN5 / ESPN+
      • Main card – 8:00 PM | TSN5 / ESPN+
  • Southern hemisphere tackle sports:
    • Australian Rules Football:
      • Hawthorne vs. Western – 1:30 AM | TSN3

Get a good night’s sleep, otherwise you’ll get a tummy ache from all the football-adjacent foods you’ll be consuming.

The ability to shop for booze online at 10pm is…. problematic. Not I’m-going-to-the-ER-with-liver-poisoning problematic, just economically speaking.

TheRevanchist

Did you get some good deals, though? That’s the important thing.

Dunstan

It’s the BevMo five cent sale! I’d be losing money if I didn’t buy booze!

Moose -The End Is Well Nigh

That’s just sound economics.

It looks like Adelaide just realized the season started. Wow!

Joliet Jake Delhomme

I guess I should be happy that this makes the GWS loss look less bad.

BrettFavresColonoscopy

WTF, Adelaide, where is this coming from?

Joliet Jake Delhomme

Let me also vent. Dana White came out to ask Iran to not kill an Iranian wrestler who was sentenced to the death penalty. While also cashing checks from Saudi Arabia who dismembered a reporter on his watch.

SonOfSpam

Yeah, Trump asked for mercy with a “Thank you!” at the end.

Iran said haha nope and killed him.

Joliet Jake Delhomme

If you think Saudi Arabia is a better place to live than Iran, learn to read.

SonOfSpam

(looks around)

Me?

I really would rather live in neither place.

But if you meant the generic “you” then, I guess I’d still vote neither.

Joliet Jake Delhomme

My anger with DW is that he can climb on a high horse against Iran while cashing those sweet Saudi Arabia checks. They behead people on a regular basis. Google it.

SonOfSpam

Yeah, no need. That’s an evil bunch. But they’re buddies with Kushner so that’s a plus.

Joliet Jake Delhomme

Dana White is an asshole

Yes, and the sky is blue.

Let me confess for a moment. Women’s MMA deserves much more credit that it gets. Back in the day, they would always take catchweight fights, just to get a fight. I paid to watch Invicta FC 1. I have watched every Invicta card since then. I took my daughter to an Invicta card in Davenport IA. I have a picture of her standing on the entrance stage. Rose Namajunas was in the crowd and Angela KGB Lee fought on the card. My daughter picked her as her favorite fighter because she wore a cowboy hat to the ring like Cowboy Cerone. I have the picture on my phone as well.
Ready for “Karate Hottie” vs “Overkill”.

Joliet Jake Delhomme

I am of the opinion, that because of how hard they had to work to get to this point, they will always fight harder than the men. They can’t be GSP acting like a clown or they won’t get another fight. No margin for error.

Joliet Jake Delhomme

That Davenport show was fantastic. I saw the Invicta owner working the crowd. Other fighters not on the card in the crowd supporting their friends. Letting my daughter climb on the entrance stage for a photo. Fighters coming out into the crowd to talk to fans. KGB taking a picture with my daughter because she was her new favorite fighter. This is similar to my history with golf. I have worked as a volunteer for both PGA and LPGA events. I will never work a PGA event ever again. They are all assholes. No one tells them no. I have never had a negative interaction with an LPGA player. I worked the US Women’s Open and two Solheim Cups. The nicest professionals I have ever met.

Joliet Jake Delhomme

I worked two PGA match plays and a tournament of champions. Never again.

yeah right

Had a visit from my brood today. Both daughters and all the granddaughters.
It was a blast. I had to pass along the family photos and such to a new curator.

My old ass doesn’t need to be hauling extra shit around.

Made my heart sing.

yeah right

You should see our sky.

Sorry. That would be impossible.

TheRevanchist

I wonder what my 5 year old bottle of Zima is worth?

SonOfSpam

Dry anal from Roger Stone.

TheRevanchist

So, it’s worth something!

yeah right

An arrest warrant for hazardous materials.

SonOfSpam

I mean, you don’t have to be all up in our grill like that.

Brick Meathook

Man up and form a respectable military, Canada, and make us do it.

(assuming Queen Elizabeth II approves your idea)

Brick Meathook

Beerguyrob: you are my favorite writer from this site and the one who I haven’t met who I’d most like to meet in person, and we’d get along famously. Until then, go fuck yourself you stupid Canadian, at least you don’t blather in French.

HAHA CANADA IS OWNED BY AN OLD HAG

Oh shit.

Mr. Ayo

Enjoy the freedom fumes!

Evening e’erybody.

Lakers about to finish off Houston like the 500th cock.

Anyone currently at the Reno airport to give us a “boots on the ground” report on the Trump rally? Totally interested in how it’s going.

SonOfSpam

The answer is “swimmingly”:

“We’re gonna win four more years in the White House, and then we’ll negotiate, because based on the way we were treated, we’re probably entitled to another four years after that” — Trump, slurring, began his rally in Nevada by teasing that he intends to serve more than two terms

I never had to use a scythe to get women to run away from me screaming, just asking for a date was enough.

ballsofsteelandfury

Both of those stories warm my heart.

The Scottish one because it’s a happy family tale and the Ole Miss one because I never thought I would want to own anything with an Ole Miss logo on it and yet here we are.

Rosey Grier did one of these with Ray Milland as well. The 60s and 70s were a strange time.

I saw one of them in the theater with a Hammer Dracula movie and a Mohammed Ali fight. Weird!

Putting photos of medical professionals on stadium cups sold to customers at games during a pandemic. Jesus fucking Christ this fucking country deserves this shit.

They should just put Fauci’s likeness on all the cups, for the lulz.

Didn’t that guy help spread the “masks may be worse than nothing” lie in February, so, yeah.

I can’t imagine a more thankless job than trying to renovate a JV roster that was based on the triple option.

OF COURSE, they still beat NC State last season.

So did WVU!

oh, Pepperidge Farm remembers that well. At the time, was hoping maybe yinz were just better than expected, as opposed to us being gutter trash. Oopsie.

Giving that value to an 18 year old could result in fifty 18 year olds and one 38 year old creep mixing it with Coke and/ or grape juice all in one night.

Now it’s just the Blue Jays and WHO WILL THE LEAFS SIGN?!?!?!?! until November.”

And the answer, of course, is EVERYONE. Because EVERYONE wants to play for the Leafs, according to the Toronto national Toronto media.

“Well, possible free agent X once went to summer camp in Southern Ontario, so clearly he’ll want to come to Toronto.”
“Yes, I’d expect the Leafs to get quite the ‘hometown’ discount on him.”
“Oh, assuming he doesn’t just play for free.”

Man, this JV slate. Even if we did get some fun, random upsets early.

WCS

PRAISE SHAN’KLOR!

The first (televised) blocked kick of the JV season during Georgia Tech-FSU.

Viva La Tabula Raza

Why is game delayed?

WCS

Lightning in the area. Also, thanks to the rona, the crowd wasn’t allowed in the concourse, so they had to remain in the stands. During a lightning storm. Ah, Florida.

Viva La Tabula Raza

Thanks. Nothing I’m interested in sports wise today so am in reading sanctuary away from tv.

King Hippo

Have about finished the 2nd (I also read the prequel – FIRST, because am pedantic that way) Philip Kerr “Bernie Gunther” series volume. Teevee not even on.

Oh, it will get a fookin’ WORKOUT tomorrow, though.
