Timing is everything. Imagine if Hoke is let go after this year, and Brandon clears away the pile of fireworks on his desk and realizes there is a brilliant choice just South of the Michigan border. The thought just sent a shiver down my spine. Wasn't Bo an assistant to Woody once? I'm just not up for a contemporary version of the Ten Year War dammit. I was having a good morning until I thought of this.

You made a great choice with both of those, the Elijah and the Four Roses. In my opinion, Elijah Craig 12 is the best value you will find and it has the right heat, flavor, and finish to work neat or in a mix. I just picked up some Elijah 12 at Party Source in Newport, KY (across the river from Cincy) that was a special distillation just for them. It is non-chill filtered, so it has more of the oils and esters  in it to provide flavor than you'd typically find.

Most bourbon is chill filtered so it doesn't get cloudy, but it takes some of the flavor away. Anyway, if you get a chance to be near Newport, stop in and pick some up - it's about $27 a bottle. The chill filtered Elijah 12 is excellent too. I think the mash bill is 78% corn 10% rye and 12% malted barley. BTW, Elijah Craig was a Baptist preacher who introduced charred oak barrels to the bourbon making process. God Bless him.

What's worse than a Fall Saturday wedding? Fall Saturday funerals, although Will (more meatloaf Ma!) Ferrell from the Wedding Crashers would disagree. It's hard to follow the game on your smartphone and shout for joy when your Wife is tearfully recollecting her Grandpa.

A wedding fund can kind of be the same thing as a gambling basket: you do take a risk with both. But what is life without a little risk? Happy wedding and many anniversaries to you! (celebrating 23 years myself this year - glad I took the bungee jump of love).

When I think of Maryland, I think of crab cakes. When I think of Maryland football.....................I think of crab cakes.

Upvote for "peyote smoothie". Haven't heard that one. Sounds better than Paul Finebaum's prune smoothie (roll tide).

I can see Lewan saying "gee Mrs. Hoke, you look lovely in that dress" just like Eddie Haskell........
