First game of the season, and the first officiating error against the Saints.

I'm not actually here tonight. (Some would argue I'm never actually "here" at all.) Tonight is the opening evening of baseball at my beloved Nat Bailey Stadium.
I think it's my 27th season selling beer at that venue. Winewife is kinda tired of the whole deal, what with my advanced
I came of SNL age in 1981, which Wikipedia tells me was Season 7. After the first five, and in the dead zone that just acquired Eddie Murphy. It was a big deal to Canadians because SCTV alums Robin Duke & Tony Rosato (RIP) were on that season, and this

In Part 1 of the series, I covered how to create a veneer of respectability around an event by giving it a title. In this part of the story, we cover the trip to Scotland and the accompanying whisky tastings.
As for the whisky tours, that planning started back in April
So, this summer I turned 50. Not a big deal to most, as average life spans are now at the highest they've ever been, as long as you aren't an Iraqi refugee or a black man from Chicago. But still, given the ulcers I developed at age 7 due to
Hello, new Commentists. I'm Beerguyrob,
I post the odd article from time-to-time, and I usually have something to do with non-gameday Open Threads. During the week I tend to keep things focused on football, although I like to throw my History degree into the mix once in a while, and sometimes
