2008 NFL Playoff Pick'em - Unofficial Post

I'm outside brewing today, but I'll start getting the playoff stuff up while I'm working... sorry if it doesn't make it by the first kickoff.

12:05PM update: damn... still getting everything clean and set up.

12:20PM update: Did anyone know that Bryan Adam's "Summer of '69" wasn't really about the summer of 1969? He was born in 1959, so he was only 10 in 1969. His experience that he is sharing with us is about the first time he got some 69 action... I'm guessing it was in the summer.

3:02PM update: Ahh yeah. Mash-in done. (For everyone not named Kyle) that's when the grain soaks in hot water to pull the sugars out. Smells like bread up in the garage. The compiled playoff card is in progress and should be up soon.

3:39PM update: Well the card is up... kinda. I am still searching for a few cards and all the formulas don't work yet.

6:06PM update: Still brewing... It's a 10gal batch of Grand Cru for whoever is interested. Ugh... so much to clean. I think there is a collelation between motivation to clean and number and beers drank. Motivation trends proportionally down with beer #.

7:14PM update: Sorry Gary... you were on the wrong side of Kurt Warner's owning of the Falcons. I guess those historical statistics come through sometimes. I think the formulas are all working on the card now. I'll confirm when I'm not outside drinking and brewing.

9:00PM update: Brew day is over, so I'm switching over to the "Official Post"

P-F21: Week 10 NFL Bonus - Baseball is over, now what?

Losing baseball season isn’t like losing football, but it can still be a difficult event for some. While we are deprived of baseball season’s physical presence, we can still reconcile -- you know what, we’ll figure it out. Below are some ways you are honoring the memory or just moving right along. Sleep Astros! (AP): “Go to sleep on time during the week!” (3)  -- apparently you aren’t into MACtion Beelzebubbles (CC): “Now I can get some decent sleep during the work week” (3) More time for football 18 National Championships (CG): “Plenty of football and golf” (2) Bite a Kneecap Offs (RK): “MACtion!” (4) -- yes! Holiday, celebrate! Masks [ON]/OFF (RH): “Fried turkey, gravy and pie, oh my!!” (5) -- love this answer Swamp Dogs (DR): “Christmas!!!

P-F21: Week 7 NFL Bonus: Best news of the year!

It’s a mad world. Let’s parse out some good. Everyone gets POSITIVE bonus scores! (One thing though. I forgot to add “in the NFL” to my bonus question, but maybe you guys behaved yourselves) A Northmen (AN): “Brittney's dad will no longer be her conservator! #freebritney” She went on with a bunch of crap about TSwift, but I’ll spare you. On Brit, of course, she should have the right the fk up her life. That’s great news! +4 T-Horns (AM): “Matt Jones developing earlier than expected.” Wait, are we talking about Mac Jones? +2? Astros! (AP): “OU/Texas coming to the SEC!” This is great news. See what happened is Texas got in OU’s head, then Texas “Trojan Horsed” their themselves in the SEC, where Texas will then ruin the SEC from the inside. +3 Buddy the Chimp (BC): “Bananas.” Buddy, you get bananas all the time. Dream bigger. +3 Cornholio's Bunghole (BO): “Just destroying America is not enough for Joe Biden, so he destroyed Afghanistan. I wonder what country will be ne

1 I once watched this planetarium show on dark matter. I’m familiar with matter. I’m not saying current or future me could define it, but it is like -- stuff. However dark matter isn’t the dark stuff. Dark matter is like all the other stuff that we aren’t familiar with, and on top of that, apparently the universe contains an unknown amount of matter that we cannot observe! 2 Speaking of matter, small wins matter. Not only do small wins add up to major accomplishments, but small wins have also been shown to give enormous emotional boosts. (I think you see where I am going with this.) 3 Enough said.
