    Oh, come on, it's ok to share. We've all been there. Every Thursday night through Friday morning, even during Finals, I could always be found at the Neon Cactus. $5 cover, buy a $3 cup and keep refilling it with 25 cent Old Style or $1 mixed drinks. :thumbsup2

    And you could even bring an old cup back, so it was really just $5 cover and 25 cent beer. Coincidentally, I haven't touched Old Style since I graduated. :rotfl2:

    Had another place that was $5 cover and $2 pitchers of any domestic draft on Wednesday nights with free wings from 7 - 8 pm too. We went there all the time until they closed up shop at the end of my Junior year. I realize we ate a lot of wings and drank a lot of beer, but I didn't realize it was that much.

    I really wanted to try and find a pack of this. Unfortunately there was no where near me that was getting this beer in. Alas, it's probably for the best. If I had tried this and liked it I would be stuck craving it for the rest of my life.

    I am planning on waiting in line this year to get my hands on some 3 Floyds Dark Lord Russian Imperial Stout. The brewery isn't too far from where I live.

    My wife was at that concert... But I thought it was the CNE, and maybe a few years later.... :confused3

    Which would likely make it a different concert.... :lmao:

    They don't do them ever anymore...

    But no, they did not back then.

    Just summer... it was an outdoor facility... Exhibition Stadium, where the Blue Jays used to play.

    Good to have a goal.

    Saw this story as well. I agree that reserves should have played the whole second half.

    That's what she is telling CJ. I drank way more in college because I could burn it off, and I couldn't run 20 miles.

    What is this thing called studying?

    It is that thing you tell your parents you're doing at college when you're really out seeing how much beer you can drink.

    But don't tell CJ. :rolleyes1

    Agree with pro vs non-pro sports and trophies for everything.

    Glad you're still buying it.

    Everything said here is profound. What does profound mean again?

    No one else will read it either, don't worry.

    Never did snow skiing. I hope it works for you. I did take dds sledding, and that was a lot of fun.

    I can relate. But like Brian said, I'll bet the grandparents will warm up eventually. I've seen that happen in other people's adoptions.
    I can relate. The family isn't allowed to ask serious questions or try to talk us out of it unless I'm present. Gotta protect the missus.

    I have coached varsity basketball at the high school level for both boys and girls. Only bringing 9 players to a game is also part of the wrong philosophy. Knowing his opponent, he should have dressed JV players and had them available. I regularly carried 10 all varsity and 4 JV/varsity players. These 4 players would play one half of JV and then be available for a half in the varsity game. He could easily have brought a larger roster to that game and allowed the younger players to gain experience and not been an @$$.

    I do agree that you don't need a mercy rule. They need to terminate coaches that have no compassion or regard for the situation and hire good coaches with common sense and morals as discussed. Good coaches can find a solution to allow both sides to learn and become better players and people. It really is shameful.
