Im back

We can just start with this lovely song:


Because lets face it, you all missed my my dumb ass ramblings.

This is what I learned while away from a computer for 2 weeks:
1. Still not missing FB and may actually deactivate my account. Its kind of like living off the social media grid. I now know how Bear Grylls feels.
2. Taking a 2 year old to the movies is not my best idea ever.
3. Fantasy football season is here. Already had 1 draft and can't wait for the next.
4. Is there anything better than a month with 5 pay days in it?
5. Pretty sure I put an Indian through college with all the money I dropped at Foxwoods.
6. Some people do some dumb shit when they are drunk. Maybe its funny at the time but man is it dumb.
7. Justin "Jaydisco" Brennick is selling his house if you know anyone interested in it:
http://www.realtor.com/realestateandhomes-detail/5-Forest-Ave_Seekonk_MA_02771_M49488-77832
8. I know that people are bitching about the Ice Bucket challenge, Thanks MikeyT for donating, but you can not bitch about the results: 16 million raised so far. Calnan have yet to see your video or receipt for a donation.
9. Rumor has it Mike Layden bought a NH summer vacation spot.
10. Mike Foley does not and will not attend any type of going away party.
11. Moving is not fun but moving in the rain is even less fun.
12. Have you ever thought someone was stronger was physically stronger than they actually were?
13. Congrats to my uncle Steven "Willie" Whitley on becoming a grandfather. Also congrats to my cousin Stevie Lee on her daughter Dylan.
14. Mario is closing next week on his first house. Cant wait for the 1st bash!! Drinking shoes are shined.
15. I tried the 2 ingredient banana pancakes. Pretty much the grossest thing ever. Tasted like banana flavored scramble eggs.
16. When is Calnan going to start stepping up his #sundayselfie game?
17. How come Riccio hasn't invited us up to his Hampton Beach Real world house? Are we not friends?
18. Speaking of Riccio, I don't know who gives me more shit for not updating the blog, him or Chrissy.
19. How can people bitch that it was 56 degrees this morning? I love the Fall weather.
20. ADSL fantasy football draft is this Saturday at 3:00 At the South Side tavern. Come on down for some laughs. Lets guess how many Patriots players Big Show drafts.
21. Cuddling with your brother is not the least bit weird, right? I mean no homo.
22. Is this Red Sox season over yet?
23. Can someone explain to me, in simple terms, what the fuck is going on in Ferguson? Calnan basically said that America is broken.
24. Jeffrey makes fun of me for still playing words with friends. Most likely because I don't have any friends.
25. How did you guys let me go so long rocking a goatee? I mean honestly I looked like a super douche in some pictures!!

Hope to see some of you in my drunken stupor on Saturday.

PS Has anyone heard or seen Supah P since he got hot and heavy with his new lady?

Holy Lord! August is almost here

I have always heard the saying that as you get older the years move by faster but fuck me, this year is flying by. Its like two weeks ago we were all bitching about snow, then last week we were looking forward to the July 4th cookouts and now its like damn the summer is half over.

This is what I learned over the past weekend:

4. Mike G is alive and kicking.  He made a rare Massachusetts appearance on Saturday night.

8. It seems like there hasn't been any really good movies to come out this year.
9. You know you have really bad handwriting when you can't read your own even though you just wrote something down.
10. How come some people have issues with personal space? Like I dont need you invading my personal area when I am on the computer or the phone or am just talking to you in general.
11. Thoughts on your friend having a joint co-ed bachelor/bachelorette party? If you are in the wedding can you refuse?
12. What is the deal with poison ivy? Like can some people touch it and not break out or what?

14. Man Nanaca crash is on the android. I used to love playing that game for hours back in the day.

That is all I have for now. If you see my brother Ryan Friday wish him a happy 29th birthday.

Bone Yard Barbecue

Here is a review from one Christian Daniel MacPhail (I edited it as best I could as he sent it via text)

I checked out www.boneyardbarbecue.com last night with my buddies, David and Scott, on the recommendation from a couple of guys at work.  I apologize in advance, as I forgot to take photos for this review.
On Monday's they have $.30 wings.  Its a small dive bar with a few tv's and plenty of different beers on tap(you know I love drafties). They had plenty of sauces to choose from for your wings.  I of course went with their hottest, which had a decent flavor. I was tempted to try the bacon buffalo though because I mean who fucking doesn't like bacon.  Maybe next time.

At first I was thrown off by their "rule" of only ordering 10 at a time.  I get you don't want people ordering a shit ton and then taking them home but I thought 10 was ridiculous.  I quickly found out it was the perfect number.  The wings came out fast.  They were big wings with a little bit of breading (I don't mind breading as long as there is not a pound of it). But being big they were cooked perfectly.   As soon as we were half way through the waitress asked if we wanted more.  We all said yes.  They came out before we were done
 with our first round. Its definitely a place I would recommend and go to again if I was in the Seekonk area.

It just sucks that I found another good wing joint that's just a little too far from me. If anyone is up for a road trip keep me in mind.

On a side note we were all chatting about how we have more time to grow our staches for a bit longer now that the Mustache Pub Crawl is in June. Scott has been saying that this is the year he was going, that he may be handing out mustache rides to a lucky lady but now he seems to be backing out. What gives Scottie?

Sunny days

Lets get weird, It is Cinco Demayo Bitches!


This is what I learned this weekend:
1. Jeffrey crossed Club Alex's off his bucket list. He will not be returning.
2. Mario is getting too old to be playing in weekend hockey tournaments. His body doesn't handle it well.
3. It seems to me that the WWE doesn't really care about some of their PPV's
4. Watching two 3 year olds, even with the help of your wife, can be trying at time. ONE LOVE TO STAY AT HOME MOMS!
5. The MPC 7 t shirts should be in this week.
6. Really, who gives the 3 finger lobster wave?
7. The NHL should be ashamed of themselves for a 12:30 playoff game.
8. My cell phone battery is literally dieing within 3 hours of being unplugged.
9. Chrissy killing 3 mixed drinks and a beer for $20.75 at the Chinese joint was the best thing about Sunday.
10. I have received more letters, emails and calls about the impending changes to the FEMA flood changes than I have about anything else ever in life.
11. Have you ever coughed so much that your hurt your back? Asking for a friend.
12. Watching tv and falling asleep for a 20 minute nap is both the best thing in the world and the weirdest feeling when you wake up in a daze.
13. Tom Brady are you serious with the hot air balloon?
14. I am giving people 3 years. I am gonna make it to the Derby for my 40th. Chrissy start saving your $10 a week now.
15. NBA, I still hate you but 5 game 7's in 2 days ain't too shabby.
16. Feed your lawn, FEED IT!
17. Hey Red Sox hows that tiered pricing going? I'm seeing an awful lot of empty seats at these games.
18. Cheese ball is a part time mason.

That is all I have for now. As always, try to stay sober and I will do my best to keep you updated.

After smashing my fingers in a door jamb yesterday it is pretty difficult to type but I a, going to do my best.

This is what I learned this weekend:
1. I mean who doesn't like fudge?
2. Does anyone know why both my hammys hurt today?
3. I saw Chrissy eat $20 worth of Popeyes chicken in under 5 minutes.
4. Dear Red Sox I see what you are doing with the beer lines. By making them so long that people don't want to wait in them. Oh yeah the price increase sure didn't help.
5. Its always good to see Danny out.
6. I know it is Easter and all but when did it become mini Xmas? I know I say it all the time but what the fuck.
7. Cape Cod Beer now comes in cans. If you are down the cape pick me up some.
8. Baseball Tavern still has the cheapest beers around at $4.75.

Taco Bell breakfast review


From Christian Daniel MacPhail (I edited for punctuation as it came through a text):

I haven't had any fast food besides Wendy's in a very long time.
If Taco Bell came out with the new menu for breakfast I had to give it a shot.

Here is my Taco Bell breakfast review:
1. The breakfast burrito was tasty but just a generic burrito like anyone else has, nothing special to it in fact it was actually over priced at a $1.99
2. The a.m. Crunchwrap was very good nice crunchy hash brown in the middle with the eggs and sausage pressed together and toasted in their little panini machine. My only complaint is that it was a lot smaller then I was expecting. (The Crunchwrap if you can look at the picture was only about a third of the size of that wrapper; at first I was all excited then when I open it up I was like "Damn" in my Ron Simmons voice.)
3. The waffle taco was pretty damn good. I love mixing all my food together so the fact that they put eggs, bacon, and cheese in a waffle then cover it with syrup was DYNOMITE.

It was a overall a very tasty good breakfast ,nothing I would go out of my way for but if I'm in the area I would stop in


Tax day

April 15th will always be known as tax day but after what happened last year at the Boston Marathon the bombing is now thrown in the mix. Please, keep the victims in your hearts and prayers.

This is what I learned this weekend:
1. Mario has 1 extra ticket to the Red Sox marathon Monday game if anyones interested.
2. Who hits on 17? Apparently Michael Brown does.
3. I really am the worst golfer ever.
4. The new Captain America movie was great.
5. The 7th Annual Mustache pub crawl is less than 2 months away.
6. It is hockey playoff time, now all the bandwagoneers come out. Lets see who starts their playoff beards.
7. There isn't many strip clubs still operating in Providence.
8. Galaxy S5 or the HTC one (M8)?
9. Welchies new bff, Q, loves Coronas, strip clubs, midgets and big booty hos. Sounds a whole lot like a black Chrissy.
10. Watch out world, the Chiefdude, is rocking out to the H.I.I.T workout. #beastmodeon #looklikebane #fitfam
11. The straight off the boat Irish don't seem to like gambling or strip clubs much.
12. Supah Ps beard is epic. He has not cut it in 20 months.
13. Does anyone know a mason? My front steps are in pretty bad shape.
14. You didn't hear this from me but Mario isn't making the mustache pub crawl this year.
15. Mike Foley gets on the party bus and the kid parties like it is his last night out ever.
16. Mikey Layden is MIA. Kid wont return calls or nothing.
17. Jeffrey told me the older I get the grumpier I get. I think he may be right. The older I become the less tolerant I am of dumb people.
18. I never want to admit it but I am slowly becoming a grass guy. Since my dogs have ruined my back yard I try to make sure the front of the house is looking good.
19. What feels better a good back scratch or a good stretch?
20. If Twin Rivers wants to stay open they are going to have to start giving out free drinks or at least make them $1.

Sorry, I didn't have time to post this list yesterday. The 1st hot day of the year is always busy and when we earn our money.

I hope that you all have a nice safe Easter. I can not wait to eat a pound of bacon.
