  1. You think he has the strength for either? Smart money says he breaks like a twig, like the two Nonmen who accompanied Mekeritrig (or is that an apocryphal telling of what happened to them? I've only read the Golden Room once.).
  2. I am still in for this, natch.
  3. Monday the 21st is bad for me... 27th might be dodgy as well? Rest should work OK.
  4. Board leagues I'd like to be in this year: Thunderdome, Dynasty, WJ C. I'd volunteer to be in WJ A if a slot comes open as well.
  5. Just saw this thread, and wanted to post this article here - it's by Mina Kimes over at ESPN, who is one of the better writers in sports media these days. I recall enjoying it, even though even thinking about MLM stuff gets my blood pressure up. NB, it is approaching the point from a sports perspective, particularly the use of athletes and teams in marketing this stuff, just a heads-up.
  6. Oh, no. John... damn. I try to stay off Facebook as much as possible, and I don't come here often enough, and so I had no idea. I knew of his previous illnesses, of course, but... damn. John and AG were the first people I met from the board, probably around a decade ago now. I think I commented to him upon first meeting him that I'd half expected a skull wearing a San Jose Sharks jersey. I still remember the towel thread's subtitle, which appears to be lost to time - "Today, I have joined your illustrious club!" He was a good dude. Mya - thank you for setting up the group donation; I will send a little bit to the Palo Alto VA as well.
  7. Man, that Leafs game was excruciating. So happy they won. I will say, though, as a Leafs fan whose view on this playoffs berth was "oh, cool, that's just gravy" and was planning on rooting for the Caps to win Ovi a cup after the Leafs were out, this is killing my confidence in Washington Considering going down to DC for game 5 on Friday, though.
  8. Goddammnit. Anyway, is the peated bourbon any good? Have y'all been able to try it?
  9. FML.
  10. Congrats, Ang! I went to my undergrad graduation, and it was super long and a million degrees. Skipping the Masters graduation at the same institution was an easy choice.
  11. Disagree with the initial premise, they have very different uses, IMO. I do like bourbon quite a bit for sipping (and Scotch as well), but I have never had a good Scotch cocktail (though I drink Rusty Nails when I'm feeling masochistic). As with Week, my go-to cocktail is the Boulevardier, and it's fantastic. Two notes on bourbon/American whiskies with weird finishes - have y'all tried either Breckenridge bourbon (out of Breckinridge, Colorado) or King's County Peated Bourbon (out of I-don't-know-where New York)? Breckinridge I find very interesting, as the initial hit tastes like a bourbon, but the finish has a weird... I dunno, minerality, that I associate much more with Scotches. The peated bourbon is something my boss has been talking up, but I've never seen it before and would be interested in a review from someone who's tried it. Re: old-fashioneds, I rarely order them anymore; like Swordfish, I find the range crazy-wide. There are some very good ones and some really awful ones. You can get a shitty Manhattan, but it's not as far from an average Manhattan as a shitty OF is from an average one.
  12. Oi, fuck off with calling me old. *Looks at current handle* Ah, carry on.
  13. He might be... OK, so only shots are a miracle via Thunderdome or via actually showing up on time next year and joining a Whiskeyjack league or two
  14. Can we still trade in this league? I assume we can...
  15. So, uh, what is the hierarchy of leagues to feed into the Experts slots? Asking for a friend, etc.
