One-Handed Beer Football Needs its Own League

. What you see above is a game of one-handed Pabst Blue Ribbon football.  The rules are simple: you always MUST have a beer in your hand (and if you drop, you gotta chug), tackles are made by one-handed touch, and the first team to 70 points wins. It’s been played by a group of […]

Whatcha Drinkin’ This Weekend?: Football-Is-Back! Edition

I’m happy to say that we’ve suffered through the lockout, the finger pointing and the posturing and bigtime pro football is back for most of us (sorry Peyton).  Last night’s game between the Packers and Saints was a great start to the season and it even ended the right way, with a victory for the […]

What’s Yer Pleasure This Weekend?

Well, it’s the first weekend after all the holiday madness, and I have to admit, I’m a little pickled.  I took the week off between Christmas and New Years and enjoyed my lack of responsibility with quite a bit of (mostly) responsible drinking.   Lots of beer and a good deal of whiskey as well.

Triumph and Trials: How Was Your Weekend?

So How was your weekend?  Mine was…well, a mixed bag.  Yeah that is an adequate description.  As far as sports are concerned, my fantasy football team rocked!  I scored 157 points, and my kicker still plays tonight.  I now have the dubious distinction of having scored the most points in the league, but my record […]

Preseason Form

Hello Don. I say this because at this point you and I are the only ones reading. We’re working on a “statement” post, where we tell you what this blog is all about, but I couldn’t wait. In short, Don’s the whiskey guy, I’m the beer guy and we’re brothers. We’ll explain the rest at […]
