Love Chama. Their brewers are friends of mine. They have a stout called Sleeping Dog that is outstanding.  Also a great Bohemian pilsner.  Solid beers all over their menu.

UV for you Sir.  He has uncanny confidence. He made some youthful mistakes this season... they all do. It's a big stage and these are kids. His play in the Sugar Bowl... in spite of getting POUNDED... just continued to improve throughout the game.  There were several plays where his head was almost taken off... and he bounced up each every time as if to say "Is that all you got?"  The late first half reception where he stretched out over the middle (where you're most vulnerable to some really good Bama D-backs) was a great play and was instrumental in the momentum change.  

This is a gifted athlete with a nose for making plays. I can't help but wonder... they have yet to utilize his ability to throw.  Good lord.

Bluecorn Brewing has great beer... they are on the east end of town on Cerrillos Rd.  Also check out 2nd Street Brewing Co.  You should be able to find La Cumbre Elevated IPA and Marble Double White at local beer stores.  Unfortunately none of the other guys are packaging yet so you gotta go to restaurants or taprooms to find 'em.  If you see a place called Total Wine they should have a good selection of packaged local beers.

A few points from this vid...

JT Barrett runs the read-option like he invented it.

Seems like years ago that Dontre Wilson was playing.

Thank God Fickell saw potential in Darren Lee as a linebacker, when NOBODY else did.

Jalin Marshal is a beast.

Nice!  You have a new Bosque taproom down there.  You should look up GrandTheftHarley I think he's down around your area.  Seems to be a hell of a nice guy.

Definitely worth a try Cins... if you ever get the chance.  I am hoping to make it out to C-town for a game and a tailgate this year.  I left Columbus in the late 70's before craft beer was big.  The only brewery in town was the Budweiser plant if I recall.  Really looking forward to trying some craft beers from back home.  Might have to load up my pickup with some samples from NM... work a trade or two!

+1 Cal... BTW it was nice meeting you and your associates.  Hope y'all had a productive trip.

Dang it I was really wanting to see this kid on STs this season.

ABQ, Cisneros.  These are all local breweries, but each have very worthy IPAs that can compete on a national level.  None distribute out of state yet. Most are less than 7 years old.

BTW I also forgot to mention Marble's Double White.  It's an amazing IPA.  Marble won Small Brewery of the Year at last year's GABF. ABQ is the most underrated beer town in the country... but that's about to change.

Agreed MT will be fine.  I remember Spencer's quote... IIRC when the reporter asked that question, Spencer was smiling and his attitude was like "what the heck do you expect me to say?" so I don't know if many people took him seriously. 

Even so... his prediction was premature only by a matter of months.  Heh.

They all have downsides Bro.  Not mad.  Sorry if it came off that way.  It is a touchy subject because we have a power plant out here that is getting shut down... simply because they are using coal.  The politicians are scared to death of it.  This move will reduce the available power supply, and make it more expensive for everyone.  As is always the case, it's the poor who are least able to afford higher utilities, and they'll suffer the most.  At this point, we need all forms of power.  If we need to do something, it should be revamping the grid because that is a disaster waiting to happen.

Coal mining is dirty work.

Is it any dirtier than oil production? Ever hear about the cleanliness of uranium mines and processing plants? Los Alamos was neither, but they imported a lot of refined uranium for research... and now they are a multi-billion dollar Superfund site. Do you live where there are thousands of acres of solar panels? I can tell you by first hand experience... they ain't pretty by any stretch. Ever drive through west Texas and look at the windmill farms?  Those are ugly as hell and harm endangered species including birds of prey.  They are also VERY noisy... talk about sound pollution.

All those smart car batteries will eventually need to be disposed of... tons of hazardous materials that in comparison make coal look relatively clean. Funny thing is, those smart cars use just as much fossil fuels as their internal combustion counterparts... because most power plants generate their wattage burning coal and oil.  

Every form of energy has it drawbacks, and there is a hell of a lot of misinformation out there. Coal has been targeted by organizations with an agenda, and too many people fall for it. The truth is always somewhere in the middle.

I enjoyed watching Jalin dice up their zone... one of those great catches to which you refer was made by him climbing the ladder across the middle. Cardale put the ball where it was needed... and he made the play. Dude is a gamer, and a good part of the bama win was because he wanted the ball. Heh... Jalin's helmet rushed for almost as many yards as Zeke.
