- Still trying to decide which bourbon to sip on all day Saturday and throughout the game. I'm thinking Blantons, let me know if any of you virgin barrel snobs have some recommendations 

It's a night game so you'll need a longevity play. Blanton's is only 93ish proof = you should be okay for a marathon day. Just remember to hydrate.

LSU, none, USC's fight song

One I can afford that's as big or small as they want it to be on any given week

I am the only one who went to Indiana on either side vs I married into an Illini cult

A few years out of college I suddenly found myself with a job/title someone my age shouldn't have and I needed to "get older" quickly in order to buttress my social credibility around people I would be attempting to influence. So I immersed myself in scotch - Highlands, Lowlands, Speyside, Isley, Campbelltown - and forced myself to be knowledgeable. 

Years later I was on business in Louisville, confident, out with some shot callers in Kentucky healthcare at a nice dinner. I ordered a Laphroaig and it was as if I just vomited on the table. One of the men I was with looked at me and in a southern drawl said, "boy, you just ordered a Pepsi in Atlanta." That was the beginning. Two weeks later I was having a PVW 15 rye in Julian Van Winkle's back yard lot with a mutual friend.

It's late now, but buy a used tux from a tux rental place and have it altered for you. It's cheap and you'll have one for the odd black tie affair - it's a boss move. Mine came with a seedy hotel room key in the breast pocket. That tux has stories I'll never know.

The asshole/wallflowering balance is delicate and difficult. Give the GF an occasional hand squeeze and check peck. Let actions do the work for you instead of words.

Will probably bounce around. I don't stay in one place well.

If I try to watch series in real-time, the way I travel, I end up being 12 episodes behind. I like waiting until it's all done and then binge-watching. Didn't watch a single Sopranos, The Wire or Breaking Bad episode until they all wrapped.

I personally use 11W Staff when I'm running non-editorial content, like today - the Gameday and Tailgate articles on the front page right now are from me, but that's not me content if that makes any sense. Personal choice.

apple shisha

the people's shisha. My shisha of choice.

I'll add it to the product idea/discussion list.

Taormina still looks like the Greeks just left it two weeks ago. It's marvelous.

Dubai is Arabic Orlando, but there is some impressive architecture and commerce there that's hard not to appreciate. For more culture you have to head into the desert, where in the evening it feels like the sun is setting on you and you can get Bekaa Valley wines from Lebanon at Fell Off a Truck prices.

Of all the things I love about Koreans, my favorite is that I'm taller than like 90% of them at 5"9.

Never been to Cluck U. I really enjoy heat for flavor, but not as a test of wills. That said, my threshold is abnormally high.
