My favorite week

This is my favorite week of the year. Everyone is happy, lots of people only work 2-3 days this week, everyone drinking Wednesday night and both Thursday and Friday are holidays at work ( double - double time and a half).

This is what I learned this weekend:
1. When drinking Jeffrey has his shoes shined up there is no slowing him down.
2. Stranger Things 2 was meh.

6. The Wrentham outlets are beyond chaotic.
7. If Thanksgiving isn't in your top 2 of holidays then you have problems.

13. Guess who bought 6 tickets to the Kentucky Derby? Section 226?
14. I had no clue they made turkey stock in a can. All these years I have used chicken.
15. Any time you can connect with old friends you should.

15. Does anyone play the daily number?
17. Just seeing if you are paying attention. Skipped right over 16.

Labor day

Happy Labor day you animals.
While you all are out enjoying the last days of the summer I will be working.

This is what I learned this week:

15. There is no one I would pay $1500 per ticket to see front row center stage. How can Lady Gaga even charge that?
16. We are on to week 6 of waiting for my battery from China.

TMX draft recp



Welcome back to fantasy football season! Tmx is enjoying semi retirement on the TMX island not Belize so dont start the collusion talk with beach bums, I know how this league speculates! Stopping by for a quick recap and odds on winning the belt this season. The draft was quick and controversial the only way the league knows how to operate. 5 wide rec and 5 rbs was mysteriously replaced with one flex ( mysteriously meaning clerical error by the league office).  The league this year saw a run on qbs unlike any we've seen in the past with two teams drafting back to back qbs, there was also a run on PATRIOT rbs with three taken in a row in the 14th round and we had some out of the box tight end love as team new guy took top two tight end in his top 4 picks!! We also had our quickest shot pick as slippery wizards may have been too focused on shining last years winning belt! Murtaugh and Riggs also got in the shot buying biz but at least he was drafting for two! Quick shout out to the bartender for making the jolly rancher shot at 2007 prices no less. Lets recap this wild draft from 1-10 same crew as last year with the exception of the guy who came in last. That guy quit as he didnt want to wear the dress to the bar. TMX is not into bullying or public shaming so dont look to us to give up who that person was.

 Drafting first was The Luvbelow. First spot is pretty easy to get rolling with best player available and thats what Luv did taking D. Johnson. Following that up top ranked qb Rodgers and Luv is already off to another "great draft". Kelce is third pick and Luv has top rb, top qb and top 5 tight end. Took a few swings at rebound wrs with hopkins, arob. b.marshall and tate. Lacy and west backing up Johnson seems risky but if DJ plays like he did last year he prolly wont need a rb! Alot to love about this draft and like everything unless injuries come along there is no way The Luvbelow isnt in contention all year. 

 Second pick this year was Black Dynomite. They went safe with Lev Bell then followed it up with three straight wr Thomas, Dez and TY. Shouldnt be hard to roll them out each week only question being TY with the Luck health factor. Powell, Mcfadden, Abdullah and Kelly is a good group and like DJ when Bell is on you dont really need an rb2. Tight ends Eifert ( health issues) and Brate ( lotta mouths to feed in tampa) is a weakness But Matty Ice and Stafford is a good qb pairing. Black Dynomite will be flooding the trade market with unreal trades for Hogan and DMC so stay by your phones!! Once again Black Dynomite is a wagon and will be competitive.

  Third pick this year was the Equalizers who had a decent draft and avoiding going all in on GOD Brady. Equalizers took Brown and then later paired it up with big Ben, they took a great risk/ reward play with Zeke in round 3 and are praying for a Gurley comeback taking him in round 2.  Garcon, Mr Big Play Djax, Maclin and Mike Williams could be a concern for Equalizers at wr and by could be we mean hit the wire. But Pats d and Andrew Luck are quality later picks. Trades, waiver help and a Zeke explosion when he comes back could put Equalizers in the money

 Fourth pick this year was Charlies Angels the self proclaimed bad boys of adsl. Angels went with Julio and Cooper and three rbs in first 5 picks. Howard the safe pick then couple of swings at bounce back player beast mode and rookie heavy hitter ( well actually not so heavy cuz she got up)  Joe Mixon. In 8 and 9th he went qbs with carr and cousins for much needed qb depth or just to copy the stay woke #ogs?  Ruldoph and Cook could have break out years and if Tyreek hill continues from last yrs production and T Williams and Matthews hit the Angels could be looking to be in the money.

 Fifth pick this year went to  Twiddling dicks who went after wrs with 3 of the first four and loaded up Evans, Baldwin and Jeffery then finished the wr corps with Crowder and Diggs. Also taking God Brady second shows Twiddling is ready to roll. Comeback player of the year candidate Hyde and ppr machine woodhead  should be effective if not Frank Gore (what did you say?) FRANK GORE should get the points as he always does and taking a chance on AP late seemed safe. Tight ends Thomas and Njoku seem to be a weak point but all and all a good draft that i'm sure Twiddling only remembers half of.

 Sixth pick this year came from the fresh prince of Belize the Beach bums who were not present at the draft. Conflicting reports say he was on vacation or was suspended by the league for league wide violations up to and including several traid fleecing charges, threats at last draft  and performance enhancing drugs. Tmx will investigate any and all leads. Beachbums ignored the medical concerns and went with ODB then followed it up with Cooks and Brees . Took rooking Fournette and lottery ticket hunt then stabilized the rbs with less risk back up rb picks coleman, ingram and rawls. Henry and Doyle show promise last year and if that continues in those offenses tight end should be ok. BeachBums had an ok draft by Bums standards but they will be in the mix as always based on transactions and trade movement.

 Seventh pick and went to defending champs Slippery Wizards. Tmx doesnt count anyone out at the draft but Slippery Wizards have alot of work ahead. No one has won the league not having at least one top 2-3 player at a position and in many cases you need two not sure they accomplished that. AJ Green , demarco, Keenan Allen followed by Crowell and Ty montgomery are all good players but none are carry the team. Wizards took a chance on suspended rb Martin and got delanie walker and up and comer hooper at the tight end. Big run on qbs left the Wizards watching the top 12 go off the board before he got a shot and settled for Rivers and Dalton, hope there is paired with Allen and Green possibly double points?

Eighth pick this year went to The stay woke #ogs. They went with Freeman to lead a pack of young  rbs of Mcceverything, Perkins, Perine and vet Latavius Murray. The wr corp of Jordy, comeback candidate Benjamin, HIGH risk/ HIGH reward Martavis Bryant  with Britt and Lockett is a good group, paired with Jimmy Graham. The strength of #ogs maybe the back to back qbs he took in 7th and 8th! Russy and Cam going back to back for a team that was known to wait on qbs!! Is rocky boxing lefty??? #ogs look like a team with alot of assets and should be in contention.

Ninth pick this year went to Supah P's oops that was Welch's former team but he quit cuz he had to wear a dress TMX apologizes for the error actually NEW TEAM is Kung fu money grip. Team money grip came in late and was a little unorthodox to start Mccoy was the right pick at 9 but taking gronk in 2nd and reed in 4th seemed wild and millar is safe pick and Gillislee could have a Blount type monster year in that offense but Artis-Payne late seemed iffy at best. Lots of question marks at wr with Davante Adams who showed flashes, Fitzy can he still do it, John Brown with the health so its Crabtree and the rest of the guys at wr. Meredith unfortunatley is done for the year. Team money grip did get two qbs with upside in Winston and Dak so with some waiver moves and maybe a traid he should be in a better spot

Tenth pick went to Murtaugh and Riggs many calling them the team to beat as they started out with 3 rbs Gordon, Ajayi and cook and then went in on the preseason hot boys Pryor and Parker. Mariotta and Wentz at qb could be a who's hotter situation but both put up numbers in passing offenses. Cobb and Snead are two breakout candidates  in bigtime offenses as well. Ertz shows flashes and Ebron is still in the "this is the year" category. Murtaugh and Riggs should be rolling all year.

  TMX is in semi retirement and wont be blogging each week but may pop in. You can check the drunknothings blog or follow us on the twits @deeganisdead where we post all the updated stats from our comprehensive stat department #statsbyme. Good luck to everyone and hopefully its a year full of traids and no injuries! TMX OUT.

19. Getting a group of people to decide on a place to grab dinner is one of the worst things in the world.

22. If someone says they do not masturbate punch them in the throat. They are lieing like a mother fucker.

Ok I have 500 emails to sort through so I gotta jet.  Remember Brady loves tequila and dick pics for her birthday, not necessarily in that order.

7. Both Chrissy and Jeffrey are having July 4th parties.

15. I feel like staining a deck should be quick and easy but nah it isn't.

Bitter Sweet

The 10th and final Mustache pub crawl is in the books. With a little help (or strong arming) from Sarah, Kaitlyn and Kiki we sold all the shirts, most of the koozies and some fake staches to raise $1402.



I rounded up and made the donation this morning for $1500.
I would like to thank everyone from the bottom of my heart that has supported the cause for the last 10 years. What started out as a small idea turned into so much more. Year one the shirts were $10 and I just wanted to see if I could get 40 people to grow mustaches and get together for a Saturday​ afternoon of bar hopping. After the initial turn out ended up being 70 some odd people I figured we had something cooking. We had high of 160 people one year and lows 50. We raised as much as $1900 (that went to the One Fund) and as low as $800 (when we moved it to father's day weekend). Any extra shirts we had left over we donated to the Veterans Association. We had good laughs and made new friends. In the 10 years we did this we only had a few minor hiccups - Bell n Hand, the Charlie Chaplin stache and few people turned away just because they were wearing crawl shirts but we never had any problems. So as we close the book on this weekend and the mustache pub crawl I just want to thank you all again.

I am definitely taking a year off to go to the Kentucky Derby. Maybe in my absence someone else will take up the pub crawl mantle. If not and there is still interest in doing one we can start anew, I'm thinking Wounded Warriors foundation?

This is what I learned this weekend:
1. Joe Q is still bat shit crazy.
2. The bars in Quincy center were all very accommodating.
3. Getting shut off at a bar isn't a bad thing. Just means you did work.
4. By the way if I was rude or anything to anyone after Kama lounge. I am sorry and don't remember much.
5. People losing their minds over $10 covers is funny to me.
6. Drunk Derek should never be allowed to order Chinese food. Everyone knows I'm just gonna pass the fuck out.
7. Some people are puke and rally kind of guys, others are fall down guys, while I am a passer outter.
8. Why does Snap chat update every other day now?
9. Fat Belly Deli still has it.
10. Chrissy was losing his shit when he thought Kristin's didn't have Reese's peanut butter cup pancakes anymore. Crisis adverted.
11. Is anyone watching American Gods? Is it worth watching?
12. Friday nights are perfect for couch time.
13. What is your for Memorial day weekend? Are you all heading down the Cape with the Macphails?
14. Nothing sucks worse than running out of propane while cooking on the grill.

Gotta go and do some work.

Monday, May 15, 2017

The final countdown

Man oh man, how time flies when you are having fun. In all honesty I cannot believe it has been 10 years since we started this Mustache Pub Crawl. What started out with me trying to organize 40-50 people on a random Saturday turned into much more. We have had great years where 150 people have shown and others when only 60 have. We have raised over $10,000 in the time we have been doing this and hopefully we can get at least $1500 more this Saturday. All and all I would say it will be a bitter sweet day.

This is what I learned this weekend:
1. Pretty sure not one person likes to work.
2. I'm amazed when people have never been to Florian hall before.
3. Chrissy loves his fireworks. Huge July 4th bash in Pembroke so he invested in $400 worth of pyrotechnics.
4. I love how I have asked everyone to meet up for a shirt, if they wanted them before the crawl and now they all text me to save them for me.
5. Not a fan of Michelob Ultra.
6. I am looking forward to the Pour yard opening up next to Cagneys.
7. You do not know panic until you have a tick crawling on your skin.
8. What excuse will Dave use for not showing up on Saturday?
9. Nothing worse than a headache that lasts for days.
10. I am not a fan of the new caramel M & M's
11. Jeffrey wants to put a trip to Toronto together, anyone interested?
12. Are you guys practicing your "Let's go Celtics" chants for tonight?
13. All this rain and cold weather is depressing. Bring on the heat.
14. Update from last week - I have heard from Nickerson, she is laying low saving for a condo. Still can't locate Coach K and my Redsox ticket money.
15. A case of Coors light bottles is $26.
16. Think officer Calnan has only a month left in the police academy, then a huge bash.

Alright hope to see you all on Saturday.

Monday, May 8, 2017

Only 12 days away

When is it too early to shave in my mustache for the 10th and Final Mustache Pub Crawl? There is a fine line to tow between creepy/pervert/everyday wear and doing it for a charity. 

This is what I learned this weekend:
1. Waking up with a headache is the worst.
2. Cinco de Mayo was a success. Cannot wait till next year's on a Saturday.
3. Sold enough shirts and koozies to pay off the bill, so now everything is for the charity donation.
4. Man people jumping on and off the Red Sox bandwagon is funny. We are only the 2nd week into May people.
5. Going out for lunch but staying out all day is always fun, right?
6. I am not against going out to lunch solo.
7. Guardians of the Galaxy 2 was funny as fuck.
8. What is up with Stop and Shop using those crazy bagging stations now?
9. Has anyone heard from Julie Nickerson? Haven't heard from her so I assume she is in love.
10. Joe Martell didn't realize how good Pearl Jam was till this weekend.
11. Korean BBQ is where it is at.
12. Hey if anyone sees Coach K remind him he still owes me for Red Sox tickets and he hasn't bought a pub crawl shirt yet.
13. Are you officially old when sleeping in means 7:30 am?
14. Do you put chips ON a sandwich or eat them WITH a sandwich.
15. May weather has been depressing.
16. Really who is watching boxing? It is 2017!!

16. I am really enjoying the Cisco Brewery beers.

2. Some ladies to not like to be hit on by other ladies. Who knew?

8. Going out drinking at 11pm makes me feel like I'm 21 all over again.
9. I can't believe Memorial day is month away.
10. I have no idea why but I find it odd when someone over the age of 50 dies of heroin overdose.  Maybe because I think it's a young man's drug of choice and cocaine as an older person.
11. It is one thing to get cans of beer at the Garden but to get unopened cans is a whole other party. Mikey T popping em open.
12. Any time there is nice weather, after a few days of total gloominess, the crazies come out in droves.

14. A haircut always makes you feel fresh.

17. Don't tell anyone but I've been crushing Coronas lately.
18. Has anyone seen Mike Foley lately? Think he is in hiding.

God damn

This year is flying by. We are already about to kick off February.

This is what I learned this weekend:
1. The older you get the more you realize small shit doesn't matter.
2. Jeffrey being liberated and free is dangerous to my liver.
3. Stop by Black Moor in Charlestown and visit Colin. Pretty sweet spot.
4. Chrissy would like a pair of Lululemon men's sweat pants for his business casual attire.
5. Why did I think Elios pizza was good?
6. Still not really having a plan for the Superbowl. Ugggh
7. I only got asked 30 times if I was doing squares.
8. If you don't send out bathroom snaps then are you really on Snapchat?
9. Jake and Joes is mehhhh. The food was nothing great and the beer "special" was a 14 oz draft for $4.

11. Breaking in a new pair of boots sucks.

13. Until yesterday, I had never seen anyone eat an orange peel and all. Thank you Harper Macphail.

OK sorry I gotta run but I got some training to do.

Starting 2017 right

The food reviews are back!

Chrissy coming in hot...

Naked Chicken Chalupa :

First off Derek should of Congratulated Grillo on his engagement secondly we need more reviews.

Well looks like taco bell is pushing the boundaries once again. Taking a page from sister company kfc (double down which is still an all time favorite and I'm pissed they got rid of) taco bell made a shell out of chicken. It was a little pricey at $3.29 and looked a little small when opening it up. But man was it delicious. The chicken wasn't dried out which was a big fear of mine, but still cooked enough that it didn't taste rubbery. It had a decent seasoning on it and the ranch inside was icing on the cake. It's only around for a limited time so I suggest going out and getting a few right away!






Monday, January 23, 2017

And so it begins

We now have 2 weeks of yapping about the Super Bowl (also known as the longest two weeks of the year).

This is what I learned this weekend:
1. Buying boots is hard. I have no idea how women go crazy for shoe shopping.
2. The Bruins are probably done for.
3. Add Chris Leaden to the list of "where is the blog kid".
4. Mike G is alive and well. Making yet another work move and now at State street in Quincy.
5. Is anyone up for some bar hopping on Saturday?
6. Bad smelling hand soap is the worst. No one wants to smell like your great aunt.
7. All these flood warnings for tonight got me worried. Gotta test my sump pump.
8. Jeffrey is getting Julian into hockey. So far it doesn't really keep his interest. I was thinking of taking him to a By game, thoughts?
9. You would think that Matt and Meg Kraemer would of invited me to the Falcons-Green Bay game when they scored free tickets.
10. I went to Game Stop to check on the NES Classic and the guy laughed in my face.
11. Trump was sworn in on Friday and look the world didn't end, imagine that.
12. Supah P is looking to get a cover up/work done, if anyone knows any good tattoo guys hit em up(other than Spilt Milk).
13. Who is planning a wild Superbowl party?
14. Being an adult means you can have nachos for dinner if you like.
15. Jeffrey has been liberated and is mobile again.
16. I must say "is this real life" at least 14 times a day.
17. Who fucking watches the Pro Bowl? Like really?
18. Dry skin in the winter is the worst. Fuck you mother nature.

Let the trash talking about the Patriots begin...At least for 2 weeks.

Tuesday Boozeday after a holiday

Nothing is worse than a Tuesday that feels like a Monday after a holiday. Especially extra shitty ones that drive you to drink.

This is what I learned this weekend:
1. Coca cola still doesn't recognize MLK day as a holiday.
2. It is OK everyone gets drinking anxiety.
3. Chris Leaden is working on coming to the world's largest outdoor cocktail party.
4. Jeffrey is a week away from being back in the saddle again.
5. Being sick sucks but being sick and dehydrated is worse.
6. I had a conversation with a friend about the lottery - would you take the lump sum or annual payout for 20 years?
7. For those wondering, APW was an overall success. Took most everything in stride.
8. It was great to hear from Bill Smiddy, the circumstances in which I heard from him not so much. I'll miss ya Matty.
9. This is the first year in 21 years that I am not running any squares for the super bowl.
10. Speaking of the Super bowl what are the plans for that?
11. If you aren't going out for lunch solo and having a few beers, you are doing wrong.
12. I always look forward to random calls to go out drinking. Spontaneous drinking is some of the best.
13. I have no idea why but it always amuses me when people have something to say about my beard, good or bad.
14. I see all you guys slinking onto the Celtics band wagon. Acting like you were there before the holidays. I am on to you.
15. I got so excited when I heard rumors of Space Balls 2 possibly being made. Keep firing assholes.
16. Have you watched Taboo on FX yet? Some weird ass shit going on in that.
17. Are you a Ryan Reynolds or Bradley Cooper kind of person? Me I'm going with Ryan but can you really go wrong with either?
18. Some people take things a little too personal.

Well onto yet another positive week, y'all.

Tuesday, January 10, 2017

So

I was listening to Toucher and Rich the other day and Dan Roche was on talking about having an APD - All Positive Day. Well I am going one step further and trying to have an APW - All Positive Week. So far two days in we are doing alright.

This is what I learned this weekend:
1. Neither Chrissy or Riccio gave me shit for posting late, must be the new year.
2. When did 97.7 stop being WAAF and start being old school R & B?
3. Remember when Sandler was funny?
4. This is how I feel about the snow already:
5. I think because of the snow we didn't end up going to Providence this past weekend.
6. Imagine losing $100 bill in a taxi, then imagine finding it and giving it to the driver. Well Uber driver extraordinair Chrissy had that happened to him...$100 richer.
7. The supermarket before a storm is basically the Thunderdome, anything goes.
8. Anyone know of any job opportunities out there? My man Supah P is looking after his company tried to bend him over with out Vaseline but Supah is a giver and not a receiver.
9. I've officially booked my room for the world's largest outdoor cocktail party. Now I just need tickets to the game.
10. I think that Jeffrey and Sarah may sneakily be going to BWW more than Chrissy or Leaden. 
11. Sometimes you just need a weekend to unwind and do nothing.
12. The Bissell pet hair eraser vacuum may be better than my Dyson.
13. It is officially the 10th and last year of the Mustache Pub Crawl but there is something brewing for the following year to take over.
14. Stepping it up big time and ordered a sausage stuffing machine!! 
15. From either lack of interest, everyone getting great gifts this year or perhaps the Pats game being on Saturday it appears as though the Annual Yankee Regift party for Saturday has been cancelled.
16. Speaking of the Pats game though I am available for Saturday sports day - Bruins in the afternoon and pats at night - bar hopping. HMU if you are interested.

Sorry I have been busy with the cold weather so that's why I was tardy with this post.

Monday, January 2, 2017

New year new me

It's 2017 so leave all that bullshit in 2016. Start anew, start fresh and most of all start things you intend on finishing.

This is what I learned recently:
1. Sometimes people use big words and they really have no idea what they mean.
2. People lie about watching porn.
3. Rob slowly morphs into an angry elf after a few drinks.
4. There is a new Mexican place in Hull that is getting mixed reviews.
5. Yesterday's in Quincy recently closed, probably why it was for sale.
6. I hope everyone had a great New Year's Eve and those who were on the invite list to the Macphails annual party, keep doing what you do.
7. Don't be a dick.
8. I have said it before and I will say it again - "everyone has problems", so don't judge people.
9. I heard Disney on ice at the Agganis arena is where it is at.
10. I am not really sure where the Chinese food on Xmas Eve and NYE tradition comes from but it works.
11. Apparently when you work a ton of hours continuously you become cranky.

13. Be weird and embrace it.
14. Passing out on the toilet is totally normal, right Chrissy?
15. I am not really a fan of brunch other than the boozing.
16. Some people are cuddlers some are not.
17. If you like perpetual camping or are just lazy and don't want to make your bed -  beddys are for you.
18. It looks like January 14th for the 7th annual Yankee regift party. Let me know if you are in.
19. Looks like maybe a major shake up in the ADSL fantasy league...Who is leaving and who is staying?
20. Just like the ground hog who predicts longer winters, when Tom Kelly says this winter hasn't been so bad expect another winter like 2 years ago. Knuckle up.
21. I hope you can catch the Detour on TBS probably the best show I have seen in a while.
22. I see you people sliding off the Bruins band wagon and now trying to sneak back on.

The more things change the more they stay the same.
