Big difference between the Irish and Native Americans, we as a nation did not slaughter thousands of them and force thousands from their homes and livelihoods.

Since Native Americans are currently a small population without much political pull, not many seem to care that we trivialize them in this way.  Most people would be pretty damn upset if something similar were portrayed towards blacks or Japanese (just two for example that we willfully did horrible things to them within the US).

That defense reminded me more of the Heacock days, particularly when Laurinaitis was tearing things up (not as good yet, but getting there).  Occasionally gave up big plays but when you needed a stop, they would show up.

Of those three, it's definitely Samuel that impressed me most today.  Was it just me or did Dontre Wilson look a lot bigger today than he did last season? He had incredible burst and wiggle today and wasn't afraid to take or give a hit.

Mike Patrick is one of the worst announcers on television.

Those Quakers do make some good beer.  Hop Devil is pretty good

This doesn't help you at all but it is nice for me; it will be at The Blind Pig bar in Champaign, IL Sept. 4 as part of their Dogfish Head tap takeover that weekend.

I believe Ramzy wrote something about this topic and fall weddings.  Options: 1. Don't go.  2.  Berate your brother and soon-to-be sister-in-law; let them know this type of thing is unacceptable.  Get internet radio on your phone and listen to the game during the lunch.

Mt. Carmel's IPA (haven't tried the imperial) is phenomenal.

If the Eastgate Jungle Jim's, first beer aisle, plenty of great Cincinnati/ Ohio beers with one end just for canned beer from the likes of MadTree, Rhinegeist, Jackie O's, River Town, and West Sixth (Lexington).

I completely disagree.  1.  You should pour a Guinness into a stout glass.  2.  There are much better stouts than Guinness, including but not limited to Left Hand Milk Stout and North Coast Old Rasputin.

Besides, I don't know where the OP is from, but a nice lager or amber should do the trick such as Great Lakes Dortmunder Gold/ Elliot Ness or MadTree Happy Amber, or in my case a Two Brothers Domain Dupage.  Drink Local
