I have the small batch and have heard it’s the best of the line. What is your opinion? I will be traveling through Virginia soon and wanted to snag another bottle in the lineup. Another Virginia-area bourbon I enjoy is Filibuster.

Unless I am mistaken, ESPN is still ESPN....covering sports 24 hours per day. Just now with more talking head coverage than ever.

Comment 23 Jun 2020

I have basically quit watching ESPN. It started with my perception that they were biased against OSU, but then I totally shifted away with them owning the SEC network, cramming Big Market teams like the Lakers down my throat and now with COVID19, I just don’t have the capacity to hear people being overly opinionated about things I don’t really care that much about. I think the Last Dance was the only time I have watched ESPN all quarantine.

I have almost started to watch this show 20 times. I appreciate those that have shared info. I loved Justified, but don’t typically get into Westerns, western cowboy culture. However, with COVID19 I am running out of tv to watch. My brother loves the show, and I enjoy YellowStone whiskey. Might pull the trigger soon.

I have a bottle of Eight & Sand and I can’t get into it. Maybe I need to revisit. 

My go-to is probably Eagle Rare.

I am digging the Yellow Stone 2019 Limited Edition. Sad my bottle is almost empty.  A low key recommendation would be a Virginia bourbon, Bowman Brothers. They call it the Virginia Blanton’s.

Bourbon - I cracked two new bottles last night - Woodinville and Smoke Wagon. Enjoyed both. 

What is your favorite go-to bourbon, and what, in your opinion, is an underrated or overlooked bottle?

For better or worse, each player (well most) now have a brand to assemble and uphold. In the typical fans desire to have increased access to the players, the players became individual brands. It is both great and frustrating. Teams change and dissolve faster than ever. LeBron and the decision taught me that lesson and I hardly watch any professional baseball and basketball. I don’t miss it. I have missed sports during the pandemic, but not nearly as much as I thought I would. It has been nice tuning out the offseason sports BS and focusing on bourbon, family and hobbies.

Also, Kingdom - the MMA drama with Frank Grillo, Jonathon Tucker, Matt Lauria, Nick Jonas - is quite excellent. Three seasons. Drama, action and really solid acting.

It is uncool to see the people you communicate with here on 11W show their true insecurities and bigotry. By all means, you are entitled to your opinion, but some need the ban hammer dropped.

I don’t understand how you can root for OSU sports and by default these players, which BTW are predominantly black, and then throw their beliefs under the bus. Do I agree with the violence that accompanies protests....I do not. But free speech and the right to protest is there for all.

Keep your head up.

I miss the gym too, but don’t think I will be going back anytime soon.

I work for a Central Ohio hospital. I can share that the hospitals in Columbus have been preparing for nearly 2 months and seem to be ahead of the curve in their prep. They have been chartering planes to bring in PPE, doing drills, changing the way ER visits are held, etc. If you haven't heard, all three Columbus health providers formed a temporary alliance and developed a surge hospital at the Columbus Convention Center. This is simply awesome. You aren't seeing this other places. All three health centers should be commended for this effort. At my hospital, we are seeing a slow progression of cases, but obviously prepping for wave.

The horse farm in Ky was explained. The rival cartel boss owned a developing race horse or stud (I can’t remember). Navarro purchased the business so he could have access. His men cut the balls off the horse and sent them to his rival. That was his entire motivation and the reason they picked horses as the legitimate business. 

Comment 04 Apr 2020

Seems OSU, probably via the medical center, has access to data and models that maybe haven’t been shared with the public. 

This outbreak will peak in a few weeks in Ohio but we still will have weeks of disease following the peak. The wave of even a flattening curve will last into June. 

My hospital is taking an aggressive 90 day plan. This will affect everyone from nurses to accounting.

Comment 03 Apr 2020

I found it interesting that they killed the therapist and Ben off camera. It made the Lawyers death all that more dramatic. 

Ben was a great addition although I do think they gave the character too much screen time. The actor was great.

Right. You read the stories about companies switching to manufacturing supplies like PPE, ventilators and hand sanitizer. But these are few and far between. You have to wonder why the administration won’t pull the trigger for large scale help and enforce the Stafford Act. Every day they don’t do this is every day they fall behind. 

I work in healthcare and I can say the doctors and nurses are beyond worried.
