Yesterday, around noon, I was all settled in. My favorite shows had been downloaded, my lunch was made, and I had a nap planned for the early afternoon. Then the phone rang. It was work. I told myself that I wasn’t going to pick up. I had a hangover to nurse and a sandwich and a blanket. But I picked it up anyway, and this is what I heard: “You need to come in early…”
What do you mean early? I have today off. Right? WRONG. Oh my good God was I wrong. So instead of enjoying a Rob & Big mini-marathon, followed by an afternoon of popcorn TV I enjoyed a 13 hour shift. Super. So Here’s some of what I was going to write yeasterday, but mostly its not what I was going to write yesterday
Eric Gagne is Sorry. A Sorry Sack of Shit.
Why do I keep thinking that I will curse more at Gagne than any other Brewer over the upcoming season? This is why. I’m sorry about the distraction but not being overpaid on the basis of a few roided up seasons? Don’t get me wrong, I don’t give a fuck that you juiced, I’m just pissed that you can’t get away with it now that you’re a Brewer. I’m also pissed that you haven’t pitched for shit since you stopped. See this for my general opinion on the whole Steroids thing.
More about Beer.
I hate the Heineken Draught Keg. With a passion. $18 at the liquor store and this is what happened. Assembly of the “draught” system goes with incident. The first glass out of the keg? all foam. The whole glass. Here is picture…
Now it feels like a keg party!!! WHOOOO FOAM!!!! It wouldn’t have been terrible, but here are some pics of beers poured afterward (click to enlarge.)
These were pretty representative of how this ugly motherfucker pours. 95% foam, guaranteed. Also, another complaint I have is how messy the fucking thing is. First off the tapper drips, which is one part annoying now and a second part annoying later when you have to clean it up. My final complaint is that not only does the tapper drip, but the top also can leak and fill the top of the keg with Hollands Finest. Here are more pictures…
Apple Cart in Summary…
Bucks stink, Brewers need to trade some pitching, Mark Cuban is a ego maniac, and instead of spending $18 on a “mini-keg” spend it on a treasure chest of Natty or Beast. You’ll enjoy your experience more.
