A full year???

Wednesday, October 19th, 2011

No goddamn way!  How did I manage to go a full year without making a single post?  That is absolutely ridiculous.

Work at MGM Resorts has been hectic pretty much non-stop.  I can’t remember the last slow time we had.  The little remaining energy I’ve had goes straight to beer mostly.  Had some great road trips, flew to Denver for GABF, whale hunting, and everything in between.  Now its fall already.  Hockey has started.  Football is here.  Halloween and my birthday are in the next couple weeks.  Hopefully I won’t fall off the face of the internet again…

At some point I’ll be able to finally setup a real site here again instead of this temporary WP blog.  Big plans for the site, my freelance site, and some other projects.

Another weekend in the books

Monday, September 13th, 2010

So it was a pretty fun weekend.  More football, more beer, and hanging with friends.

Michigan is 2-0 now.  The supposedly tough matchup against U-Conn never materialized, and they won a bit of a nail-biter against Notre Dame this week.  I’m still thinking the season follows a lot like last years, which wont be good when all is said and done.  But Denard Robinson sure can run.  Back to back Offensive Player of the Week awards and over 800 all purpose yards…scary.  I’m not sold on him being able to keep this up though.

On the other hand, the Lions got screwed today.  First they lost Stafford and then they lose the game on a bogus call at the end.  I’m not going to argue whether the call was good or not, bu regardless the rule is retarded.

Before those games could happen though, Chris and I went to Aces and Ales for the first game of the NFL season.  While it wasn’t nearly as exciting as last years NFC Championship game, the Saints still beat the Vikings.  Even better was drinking some delicious Ballast Point Sculpin during the game.

Saturday there was a beer festival out a Town Square.  The crew all came out, even Aaron, to try some beers.  Ryan brought out some good stuff for the Aces and Ales tent, and Joseph James had a real winner in the new barrel version of their RIS.  Afterward we went to Famous Daves for some BBQ.

Speaking of food, I guess I should comment about the outing to Mesa Grill.  That dinner was damn good!  The dining area itself was unimpressive, but the food more than made up for it.  If you ever go I definitely recommend the pork loin.  So amazing!

The only other thing really of note was checking out the new Resident Evil in 3D.  Somehow I’ve managed to go quite awhile without seeing something in Imax or Real 3D.  The movie is what I expected, meaning it wasn’t that good, but the 3D is interesting.  My one complaint would be how washed out and dark everything is.  I think I’d just prefer the vibrant colors and normal digital HD and save the extra $4.

Is it September yet?

I am looking forward to 2 things:  football and Always Sunny.

With NFL camps all in full swing, pre-season starting soon, and more Brett Favre retirement drama I can’t wait.  I’m actually excited to see what the Lions do this year too.  They got Suh signed.  Brought in some interesting free agents.  Who knows, maybe we’ll win more than 2 games this year?

Then there is the new season of It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia.  Watching Rescue Me and Louie on FX, they’ve been running the new promos and I can’t wait!
