While this is admittedly a great Bert joke, I don't want to live in a world where we're not continually mocking Bert until he's coaching a JuCo squad in West Bumblef*ck, Montana.

Due to the stream of stories about Braxton Miller and J.T. Barrett, you might have forgotten about Noah Spence's situation. 

Damn, how'd you know?! You're like a mindreader. I had completely forgotten about Spence's suspension.

Actually, you can -- TSUN paid $400,000 for the pleasure of hosting losing to App State. The price tag for 2014 is a bit higher -- $850,000. Maybe the extra $450K guarantees them a victory.

Comment 21 Aug 2014

Yeah, App State went 4-8 last year, so I don't see them pulling off the upset in a couple weeks.

But if you skip Season 2, you'll never understand how Landry became a serial killer, or got with Tyra (which is probably less believable than the former plot point). Seriously though, there are some good moments/aspects to S2 of FNL, but on the whole it's bad ... which is why everyone in Dillon got zapped with the Men in Black mind-eraser before S3. "Santiago? Who's Santiago??" If you're a fan of the show, Alan Sepinwall and Dan Feinberg of the Firewall & Iceberg podcast are doing a Summer rewatch of FNL S2. It's an amusing listen.

Buckeye Nation has put its collective faith in a JT before, and that resulted in a National Championship. And this year, Buckeye Nation will once again put its collective faith in a JT, with hopes of the same result. Get well, Brax! Good luck, JT! 

Comment 19 Aug 2014

Just like Matty Saracen when Jason Street went down! Except Matty was a couple years younger and still had to work at the Alamo Freeze, so he couldn't watch as much game film as JT. Hopefully JT's best friend isn't a serial killer.....

Comment 19 Aug 2014

Yeah, I don't think he'd come back next year either -- assuming he would still have a shot at the NFL, coming back to OSU and risking another injury, which likely would be career-ending, just isn't logical. But I think he could take the medical redshirt to preserve the possibility of coming back, and always decide later to go into the draft. It's all about options for Brax. Also, I hope he picked up a disability and loss of value insurance policy in the off-season.

As I'm not a huge fan of bocks and I really like Rye of the Tiger, I must respectfully disagree. RotT is one of the best rye beers I've ever had. The rye isn't too strong, very well balanced.

NC has really taken off as a craft beer producer. Not many beers are widely distributed, but there are some great breweries. Obviously, Asheville is huge, but recently Charlotte has really expanded in its breweries. Birdsong and Triple C are my favorites, but NoDa is also good. Can't wait for the new breweries to come online (there are several in various stages of planning). The Triangle also has a growing brewery scene.

Haven't found my way to VT to get HT, (or found someone to send me one) but would love to try it and see if it lives up to the hype. Wookie Jack, and the other "Jack" brews from FW, are pretty good. I think my fav Black IPA is Back in Black from 21st Amendment.

As the saying goes, Coors is like sex in a canoe -- it's f*cking close to water! (The same could be said for Bud or Miller)

Comment 13 Aug 2014

Wicked Weed is fantastic. It's available on tap here in Charlotte in some places, including the growler shop I frequent. Freak of Nature is a great IPA, and Gluten Freek is the best gluten-free beer I've ever tasted.

Comment 13 Aug 2014

Sculpin is the quintessential west coast IPA. Delicious, though more expensive in these parts than other great IPAs.  

Comment 13 Aug 2014

Agreed. BeerAdvocate has a new app out now, which I also recommend. All their beer rankings/reviews in an easy to use app.

Comment 13 Aug 2014

I was planning on posting this exact sentiment when I saw the LE Monster label. LE Monster is good, but Chillwave is one of my all-time favorites. I hope GLBC makes it a year-round offering.
