I tried a 22oz Pumking last night and I will say it's my new favorite Pumpkin Ale. It has everything I look for in the style. A lot of pumpkin flavor, not too much spice, and even has the pie crust taste in there too. And at 8.6% ABV, has a nice kick to it. Thanks for the suggestion!
Picked up Warlock last night and plan on trying it tonight. I'm pumped. Thanks for the suggestion!
If anyone is into Imperial Stouts, one of the best I've had is Old Rasputin from North Coast Brewing in CA. Can only drink a few but man, it's damn good.
I'm a fan of Rhinegeist's Zen Pale Ale. They are canning it right now so it's available in Kroger's around town. Has anyone tried any 50West offerings? I've heard good things but haven't gotten a chance to check them out yet.
Was hoping to see someone mention the Pumpkin Ales. Definitely some of my favorites this time of year. I also am a huge fan of Rivertown's (I think it's the best beer they make) and I also agree with the others here with Dogfish Head's and MadTree's. All great options! I tried Magic Hat's the other day and it had too much spice in it. I think that's the only thing that can really doom a good Pumpkin Ale.
Mine is when people take their sweet ass time when the light turns green to either turn or move forward. I have a light right off of the exit I take to work every day where I see people just take their time turning left onto the main road. Meanwhile, all the cars waiting in line behind them to turn left have to sit and wait there and potentially miss this really long light.
Try this link out. I've used this before and it works great. I already have it calibrated for really close to the seats you mention. Either way, awesome that you are taking your daughter to her first GAME. Looking forward to the day I can do the same!
Totally agree with this. Seatgeek combines the postings from Stubhub, uberseat, Razorgator, ticketcity, ebay etc. They then rate all of those postings on how good of a deal they are relative to the majority of secondary market listings. I bought my Bengals vs Chargers playoff games tix from there and saved a ton. Good luck to you man!
I agree. People always are giving all the credit to the guy who throws the ball (the assist), but also don't give enough credit to the catcher applying the tag. It's a part of the play that's taken for granted when in reality it's incredibly difficult especially with the new rule in place with regards to blocking the plate. I think Mes has done a great job. He will only get better in throwing runners out and I honestly think the framing of the pitch argument might be a little overblown, although I agree that Molina and Hanigan are noticeably better at that skill. Our team strikes out a ton of batters evidenced by all the free pizza vouchers I have accumulated this year. I think Mes's ability to call games has improved significantly with the chance to hold down the starting gig that he has been given this year. He's truly a guy that is showing consistent improvement with the more opportunities he's given. Let's hope it keeps up!
I don't know why, but I can't stop watching this GIF.
Is it just me or does that drummer for War on Drugs look like Shooter McGavin? Are those drums rentals Shooter?
Couldn't have said it better myself. He has surprising power for a little guy as well (185 lbs?). He definitely needs to work on the plate discipline/walking more, but I do love how he battles in there and hasn't struck out nearly as much as people were projecting. Glad you brought up the defense too because people don't realize that his defensive sabermetrics numbers are off the charts (i.e. zone rating). He's the total package and makes watching this team so much more fun.
SWEEEET. Very happy to see this. I'm sure a few of my fellow Alums that live in Cincy with me will be frequenting this more than a few times. Thanks for the heads up!
I definitely do think it's funny to see people's reaction to LaRosa's that are born and raised in Cincy. I was born and raised here and still live here and still get a hankering for it every once in a while. It's probably more nostalgic than anything but their pizza is very unique tasting(the sauce mainly). By no means is it garbage or anything. It's a little pricey but they have a deal for 11.99 for a two topping large that is reasonable. Also get Slices for Strikes (free small 4 topping pizza) at the Reds games when the Reds strike out 11 batters so that's pretty bad ass. To each their own, but I'll continue to eat it. Pro tip: put some salt on it. Sounds weird but for whatever reason, it makes it so much better. I don't do that to any other pizza I have ever had.
Stainbrook has a knee injury right now and may not even be available in the tournament. He's their 3rd leading scorer and leading rebounder. If he is out, the experience/talent level drops off and there isn't much depth. They have a good young guy in Reynolds but I could see him getting in foul trouble easily. Agreed on Christon as I think he would be a tough guard but I'm confident in Craft guarding him personally. I honestly think this would be a good matchup for us.
Dear lord. We are truly spoiled. This class is amazing just like the last one. Urban and company never cease to amaze. Welcome to Buckeye Nation fellas!
I think the big knocks on Q have followed him throughout his career so far at OSU. He wasn't as highly ranked as he could have been coming out of HS because he had a lack of passion/intensity and some even questioned his love of the game. I think that might be hyperbole personally, but I do see his lack of intensity on the defensive side of the ball alot more clearly than the offensive side. He often doesn't box anyone out and the opposing offense consequently gets multiple offensive rebounds (i.e. Payne for MSU's two monster put backs). You would think that the personality of the two seniors on this team (Craft and Smith Jr.) would possibly influence Q in some way, but it doesn't seem to be the case so far. There is no doubt the guy has a high ceiling and the talent is there, hopefully he can put it all together.
Totally agree with this. There's a reason bowl practices are brought up by the coaches alot as being beneficial. I think they find a way to fix the scheme and taylor it to the Clemson Offense. They will get some seasoning for the D-backs that will have been tested constantly in practice by one of the most dynamic offenses in the country. Cautiously optimistic about this game.
Amen brother. Glad someone else had the balls to say it because I think it's pretty clear that the DB play has regressed throughout the year. Losing Bryant hurt no doubt, but you can't say that would contribute to an absolute shit show when it comes to covering the pass. Coombs is ultimately responsible and I see no positive development out of these guys. Everyone loves him for fiery personality (me included), but his coaching leaves me underwhelmed.
Feed your Los! Feed HIM! (in annoying Scottish accent).
Last paragraph is hilarious. My sense of humor to a T. Nice one man.
Here you go Fear. It's towards the middle. Meyer is quoted saying it was a pass all the way. I agree with you though. Looked like a run to me, but maybe Braxton had in his head that he was going to do whatever he could to get the 1st with it being 4th down and all.
I think we can all agree that questioning someone's durability is NOT the same as questioning someone's pain tolerance/toughness. We are going to question why Braxton seems to be getting hurt on a more frequent basis these last two years. It is only natural. I just hope we can do that without having to always preface the fact that we aren't questioning his character or will to play.
It's a great question. However, I read somewhere that the play call was actually a pass and Braxton ran because he knew we needed the 1st and it was the only play that was available to him to make at the time. I'll try to find whatever article it was that said it.
