Back when I ran this site, I’d try to do a Friday Roundup post every week. It was probably the most read, most clicked thing I did on a consistent basis, and actually probably my favorite thing to do because it gave me an excuse to buy new beers.
When Biscuit and I set out to come back this week, I think we both meant to do a post a day, and I think we’ve both been reminded that it’s damned hard to do that. Kudos to Ryan, Bayou, and Co in keepin’ on keepin’ on. It’s a labor of love, and I appreciate these folks continuing what we started. And thanks for letting us old guys have a little fun.
- Rubbing the Rock, not a euphemism, but a Clemson blog, take a look at ND with ND blog Slap the Sign.
- Shane Walton, a blast from a past and a guy I knew seemingly a lifetime ago, has a lot of love for Julian Love.
- Dabo Swiney contends that Clemson is no Bama, but they’re FAR closer to being Bama than any of the rest of us.
- And this is nearly a week old, but Reckers – a campus restaurant at ND – is being replaced by a new Pizza Joint THAT WILL SERVE ALCOHOL. I could go on a rant about how amazing the food and dining options on campus have become since the dark days when Reckers first arrived on campus my junior (sophomore?) year, but there aren’t enough bits of memory on the internet to store it, so I won’t. But man, I could. Do you have any idea how much Burger King was consumed? Do you even know how many different kinds of Hot Pockets exist? Because I do. I. DO.
I had a small holiday gathering with friends last weekend, and most of the guys in the group are pretty into trying new and unusual beers. I went looking for something unique to try with the gang and stumbled on this stuff. It’s brewed with juniper berries which immediately made me think there’s no way it can be good, but I was wrong. It’s actually highly drinkable. And with the holidays upon us, it’s nice to have something different that is easy to drink, isn’t cloyingly sweet, isn’t obsessed with cherries, and won’t leave you with a hop headache.
