Making meatloaf today along w some smashed reds and chasing it down with about a gallon of Basil Hayden.

Bed time will not be as early as I'd like. Justus and I will both be dragging tomorrow.

Rifle opener today, in a deer stand. Looking forward to climbing out tonight and watching the game and drinking some Elijah Craig

Making up some Q from a butt I pulled and froze, Landshark for libation. Oh, and lest I forget.......

LET'S GO!!!

Reel men fish on Wednesdays

HOKIES!!!

Thinking a good pot of potato soup loaded with sharp cheddar, crumbled bacon and scallions with cornbread.

Breaking open a new bottle of apple brandy with a nod to our great statesman GW. Soooooo good.

Tyrod did it Mikey, Tyrod did it!!

Hope ya make a few Brandy Old Fashioneds! The best way to make an old fashioned.

Vroom Vroom

Cleaning our new house and making as much progress packing our old place as possible.

It's going to be a very long day!

Chick Patty w/ Cheese

Moving is the worst. Godspeed.

In Greenville with my wife and her roommates (again, residency). Gonna go get some wafflehouse here in a few (I'm a classy broad), come back, watch some Gameday, get a run in, watch a bunch of games and drink a couple beers along the way.

One of the roommates is a UGA alum and batshit crazy about the dawgs...so when I saw they, too, have an 8pm kick, I said "uh-oh, I know where I come out in this equation." So I brought down the tv from our living room. It's bigger, it's newer, and it's gonna have the Tech game on. I guess you could say it...just means more.

Pendleton 1910 or some Casamigos Anejo. Depending on how I'm feeling after working all day.

No fancy setup. Just trying to avoid waking up the wife and munchkin.

So... I've decide on both.

Somewhat oddly appropriate for today's game:

Never Forget #1 Overall Seed UVA 54, #64 UMBC 74

Dropkicks used to do a punk rock version of BC's fight song at shows

It was usually their opener, if not Scotland the Brave

Never Forget #1 Overall Seed UVA 54, #64 UMBC 74

That's one way to preheat - I mean pregame - pregame, that's one way to pregame for tonight!

We have a wedding to go to. And they're Hoos. But the service is at 1 and there's an open bar and we got a sitter so not so bad.

"That kid you're talking to right there, I think he played his nuts off! And you can quote me on that shit!" -Bud Foster

Sitting peacefully at the breakfast table eating my bacon and waffles w/peanut butter. I dont know what's for dinner, maybe quesadillas or maybe filet mignon. The wife needs to tell me.

If I drink today, it will be Blantons.

Chilling (and it is getting colder) by the lake really looking forward to the game because watching the ads during the BYU Houston game last night I realized the ACCN down and distance crew went into advertising and are doing ads for Progressive Insurance. That should really improve the broadcasts.

Today I'm doing some yard work. I was going to put it off until tomorrow, but sunny days are few and far between at this time of year now.

Anyhow, once that's done I'll be watching the game from home. No beer this week. Got some dutchberry though.

I am making a pot of soup. Hubby is making crab stuffed jalapeno poppers. Drinking Captain and Coke, maybe caramel apple sangria too...

2 time Longwood grad married to a Hokie.

Caramel apple sangria....care to share that recipe?

If you are making a big batch:
1 bottle of white wine (pinot grigio/riesling/ sauv blanc)
1 cup caramel vodka
6 cups apple cider (about a gallon)
2 apples cored and chopped
** you can add Fireball if you like (I used to add the captain Morgan pumpkin spice rum, but they don't make it anymore)

Tastes like fall in a cup

I've been making it a glass at a time, just pouring some of everything into a glass.

Winterizing the house. Putting the porch furniture and the porch swing away. Maybe put up the storm windows. Watch a little football, switching between Pitt-Miami(if I can find it) and Clemson- Ga Tech. Salmon and red wine for dinner. Knob Creek for VT football.

Doesn't matter if it's cake or pie as long as it's chocolate.

Storyline for today: Does BC revert to BC and try to pound VT's vulnerable defensive front seven? Or, do they attack down the field with Long and Flowers?

On defense, expect BC to load the box, and play soft shell behind. Herbert had a huge game vs BC last year. Hopefully Vice's more aggressive OL techniques offset the BC adjustments (playing flat down the line vs zone reads) that killed the Hokies last year.

Marcus Valdez (DE) and Max Richardson (LB) will be pains in the ass all day.

Five star get after it 100 percent Juice Key-Playing. MAN

While watching last year's game, I thought Flowers is just gonna be one of those players that seems to terrorize us every year. Not looking forward to seeing him play tonight

I am at home. Fished yesterday. I will probably watch laying chest down on the floor. My back is killing me.

http://solidback.org for the lower back. https://gochirp.com/ for the mid back to the shoulder blades.

Whatever. It was one bad year.

Seasonal Brew means High ABV for football season and standard the rest of the year.

Playing a round on Pinehurst no. 6 before having takeout barbecue from the brewery in town and watching the game

Here lies It's a Stroman Jersey I Swear, surpassed in life by no one because he intercepted it.

We just booked a trip down there for late February. With everyone pumping out kids left and right in our group, may be the last big group trip for a while.

Amateur superstar and idiot extraordinaire.

Late February down here is usually a great time. Warm enough but not too crowded. Will it be your first time?

Here lies It's a Stroman Jersey I Swear, surpassed in life by no one because he intercepted it.

And incredibly affordable too. Nah, we went down around the same time in 2017 I think it was. Only course I remember was Tobacco Road and we played in hurricane type winds and about 40 degree temperatures...it was miserable. Other two days were great though.

Amateur superstar and idiot extraordinaire.

Tobacco Road is a blast in normal conditions. The most visually intimidating course but actually pretty scoreable if you can get past the sight lines

Here lies It's a Stroman Jersey I Swear, surpassed in life by no one because he intercepted it.

Suuuper intimidating with 50mph gusts lol we were pretty bummed but made it fun in a weird way.

Amateur superstar and idiot extraordinaire.

You have me thinking about booking my own now.

Rounds at Legacy, Talamore, and Mid South. Staying in the Talamore Villas. Eight of us at 264...not bad in my book.

Very well, where do I begin? My father was a relentlessly self-improving boulangerie owner from Belgium with low grade narcolepsy and a penchant for buggery. My mother was a fifteen year old French prostitute named Chloe with webbed feet. My father would womanize, he would drink, he would make outrageous claims like he invented the question mark. Some times he would accuse chestnuts of being lazy, the sort of general malaise that only the genius possess and the insane lament. My childhood was typical, summers in Rangoon, luge lessons. In the spring we'd make meat helmets. When I was insolent I was placed in a burlap bag and beaten with reeds, pretty standard really. At the age of 12 I received my first scribe. At the age of fourteen, a Zoroastrian named Vilma ritualistically shaved my testicles. There really is nothing like a shorn scrotum, it's breathtaking, I suggest you try it.

I don't know what a Hokie is, but God is one of them!

We put the K in Kwality

Busch light and chicken wings

Just the way it should be

My daughter's birthday was yesterday so she's having friends over today. Needless to say, I will be drinking this evening during the game, after they have gone home. I have some Beam Black, extra aged for the game.

I don't know what a Hokie is, but God is one of them!

Doing some work around the house today, gonna grab some Buffalo Wild Wings and sip on some kind of whiskey.

Moving stuff over to the new house. Daughter has a swim meet, so wife and I will be watching the feed of that since they do not let spectators into the place. Was hoping to go bike riding but probably won't have time.

Oh, and a few days ago I went to the gym for the first time in about 7 months - and it really showed. God my arms hurt. I could not even straighten out my right elbow last night or this morning. Still feels like it is getting stabbed when I do straighten it.

Holy shit! My daughter dropped almost 11 seconds from her 50 freestyle time!!!! She went from being one of the slowest of anyone at her last meet (i.e., bottom 10%) to finishing first on her team. Man this would be like Rutgers going to 10-2 next year.

Recovering scientist working in business consulting

11 seconds?? That's like going from not knowing how to swim to...I guess being a pretty good swimmer lol

Amateur superstar and idiot extraordinaire.

She - literally, with no exaggeration - posted at time that is 75% of her prior best. Dropped almost 8 seconds in 100 back too. Not the huge percentage drop of the 50 free, but man still. Final event was 50 back and she was pretty much flat there. Think she was tired. We owe her a celebration 1st place dinner wherever she wants it (as long as local that is).

Recovering scientist working in business consulting

Ham and Cheese sandwich, Chips with Deans french onion dip, J Beam and diet cola. Listening to Laze Johnson and Burnop. thanks comcast. no accn for me!

Go Hokies

Trapped inside all weekend while I await a friend's covid test results on monday. Watching epl all morning and most of the afternoon, then will probably order some food and watch the Hokies win tonight. I've got ommegang's double barrel dubbel and barrel aged vanilla smoked porter -- both pretty good and both pretty potent at 10%+

On way to Outerbanks, hoping we have accn so I am not watching on my phone

I can imagine no more rewarding a career. And any man who may be asked in this century what he did to make his life worthwhile, I think can respond with a good deal of pride and satisfaction:
β€œI served in the United States Navy"

KCCO

Should have brought a Chromecast or similar just in case

I'm probably gonna play FIFA all day until the game

It's an illusion
It's all an illusion

Just finished a nice run through Winchester. Going to chill for the day then catch the game.

Thank God we don't have to listen to Herzlich be all about BC tonight... He is doing the Pitt/Miami game now.

Woodworking in the garage today making my first end grain cutting board. New hobby that I picked up over the quarantine.

Woodworking is not a full blown hobby for me but I built the frame for a fish tank stand last week. Only a small wobble, hah. Good thing its for a small tank so I can get away with just shimming it. Gonna face it next weekend. It was a satisfying experience.

Where's the beef?

Edit: Haven't began drinking yet and I'm already posting in the wrong places.

Amateur superstar and idiot extraordinaire.

Pumpkin patch / tractor ride this morning, pumpkin carving and baking seeds this afternoon. Sausage and peppers for dinner, along with some Maisel's Weisse hefe-weissbier

Costume shopping with the kids...check

Roast chicken marinating on the counter...check

Wild Turkey bourbon... check

Let's go!!!!

HOKIES!!!!

2 time Longwood grad married to a Hokie.

Finished making a few edge grain cutting boards for my side gig, started making a few more. Work is done time to play!

Watching from home in Kill Devil Hills, beer fridge is stocked, kegerator has 10 gallons of homebrew... ready to go!

Now finish up them taters; I'm gonna go fondle my sweaters.

Hell yeah, beats not seeing it!

Amateur superstar and idiot extraordinaire.

Grilling some wings (Garlic Buffalo and Honey Siracha). Sycamore Fantasy Land and Yuengling Pilsners.

Where's the beef?

Visiting an old bud down in Goldsboro NC. Got some deep river 4042 chocolate stout ready to go

"The Big Ten is always using excuses to cancel games with us. First Wisconsin. Then Wisconsin. After that, Wisconsin. The subsequent cancellation with Wisconsin comes to mind too. Now Penn State. What's next? Wisconsin?" -HorseOnATreadmill

I saw a guy buying a Yuengling Hershey Stout in the grocery store the other night. Wasn't sure what to make it of it.

Where's the beef?

Its not bad. I know some people will turn their noses up at it because it's Yuengling, but if you're curious give one a try

"The Big Ten is always using excuses to cancel games with us. First Wisconsin. Then Wisconsin. After that, Wisconsin. The subsequent cancellation with Wisconsin comes to mind too. Now Penn State. What's next? Wisconsin?" -HorseOnATreadmill

There is absolutely nothing wrong with Yuengling!

I don't know what a Hokie is, but God is one of them!

I'm in agreement! But I have personally gotten the side eye before when mentioning Yuengling. I'm as must of a beer snob as the next guy but it's a bit ridiculous when we get "above" drinking what I think is a good beer

Out on the left coast, about to grab my first drink of the day. Should be a good evening.

At home in the Nashville area, smoking 3 racks of baby backs over applewood chunks. Almost ready to pull off the Kamado Joe and rest. Go Hokies!

Virginian by Birth, Hokie by Choice

Had artichoke dip with pita chips already, cooking Lamb sliders, sweet potatoes fries, and a harvest salad. Wife is making some kind of bourbon pecan bundt cake for dessert. Drinking bourbon and ginger as always.
