wasn't mine. Someone higher up threw it and it landed on the guy behind me
Even better! Unless I was wearing a shitty hat I would be hesitant to throw mine, but I bet it's pretty easy to get caught up in the moment. What do you mean by "legit hat trick" thought? Is there another type?
Looks like Reimer is back in action and getting the start against Boston tonight. With the tear the killer B's have been on I'm going to keep him benched (fantasy-wise) anyway.
It's been too long since I've seen one of these posted, so I'm gonna go ahead and do one:
I stopped by my local liquor store on my way home from work tonight and had a lengthy conversation with a few employees about their beer selection. 'Tis the season for winter ales, and they suggested a few that were new to me that I ended up buying. Here they are from left to right:
Phillips - Hop Circle IPA Okay, this one isn't a winter seasonal, but it is a simply delicious IPA. Everything Phillips does is excellent, and this one is no exception. It's a well balanced IPA that is nice and floral. I liken it most to Bridgeport IPA for the yanks of the board.
Vancouver Island Brewery - Hermannator Ice Bock Until today everything I had tried from Vancouver Island Brewery has been middle of the road, so I was surprised when the beer guy suggested I try this one. He explained that for this beer they brew it, freeze it, and bottle the non-frozen remainder. This concentrates the beer by removing much of the water, which results in a rich, malty, strong (9.5%) product that is quite tasty! As you can see I've nearly finished my first bottle of 6 and I'm definitely enjoying all the effects!
Whistler Brewing Company - Winter Dunkel I haven't tried this one yet, but I was told Whistler made a very limited batch of it last year that only appeared at a few beer festival. It was well received, leaving people wanting more. This year they made more and put it in big bottles. It's supposed to be a nice malty beer with hints of orange and chocolate. Will probably have it this weekend, or maybe later tonight!
Castle Brewery - Eggenberg, Austria - Samichlaus Bier (Santa Claus Beer) After selecting the Hermannator we got to talking about strong beers, and the guy asked me if I had ever tried this one. I had never heard of it and he informed me that it is the "strongest lager in the world" and described its taste as similar to barley wine. I'm not sure why, but they didn't have it on display in the store, so when I said I'd give it a go he went in the back to fetch me a bottle. Indeed, the label states that it is "the strongest lager beer in the world" and boasts a 14% ABV. It was also bottled in 2007 making it older than most of the wine I drink. Looking forward to opening up this one for sure!
Wolfhat do you ever have issues with the ati drivers? When I originally built my rig, I had a radeon 5770 but had countless issues with it and the drivers so after a year I finally went back to NVIDIA and have yet to look back
I have not, but like I say I've only had it for a few months and haven't really tested it properly yet. I've only played a few games on it, and those games have been at least a couple years old. The ones I have played have been on max settings and I haven't encountered any errors, though.
That seems about right. And certainly this effect is far lesser than the equivalent for batters. They can be moved around the order at will (not within a game, of course) and get their chance to "do their thing" 3-6 times per game rather than 1-2 times per week as pitchers do.
Plus, pitchers don't have to be able to hit, and coming from someone who pitched growing up I have never liked that about the pros.
I don't much care for the Archaic Munchies. They got way too much radio play, back when they used to get radio play, and I think I ODed on them. Plus, they called the crowd "rubbish" (or something to that effect) when they last played Sasquatch and that rubbed me the wrong way.
Geno, I tried to add you on Steam but couldn't find you? I typed "Geno098" into the player search but nothing came up. I've never added anyone before, so I could be doing it wrong.
I ended up buying The Witcher (the first one) and Fallout: New Vegas in the most recent sale. Had never played either, so I'd like to beat them before moving on to the next in each series. I think together they set me back like $8. When I finally get around to buying Skyrim it will be the end of me.
I'm so mad I missed the boat on that Newegg deal. I slept in that day and by the time I saw the e-mail it had already sold out. I had even heard it was coming! Drat!

Bought it lightly used from a stoner on Craigslist back in September. He had it build in April for $3000 at NCIX. I got it from him for less than half of that.
