OK OK OK

We are 17 days into this new year and already it feels like we should be into March. When the clock hits 5:00 pm it feels like its midnight.

This is what I learned this weekend:

1. Winds that are 50+ MPH, the Cape is not a fun place to be.

2. I have come to the conclusion that I HATE Stop and Shop. They have changed the lay outs of their stores, they carry many less items than before, their shelves seem bare and their buy 2 get 1 free "sales" fucking blow. Sorry I don't need 3 containers of strawberries or 3 heads of cabbage.

3. Tattoos are a very expensive hobby to have.

4. I do not know one person who thinks this Boston vaccine passport system plan by Michelle Wu is a good idea. Most everyone I know is vaccinated.

5. When is the right time to get another dog?

6. Thank god I did not go out for that Pats game Saturday night, I would have been pissed.

7. So pretty much as fast as Omicron came in, it is now leaving (queue up Miley Cyrus Wrecking ball please). Is it time to rip the bandaid off??

8. How do we go from fucking 3 degrees Saturday to 50 today? Mother Nature must be doing the yayo at this point.

9. Chrissy is planning a trip to the Poconos to see Tooma March 4th if anyone is down to go. Rumor has it there is a planned stop at the Tabor Road Tavern.

10. Jared Rowland is coaching his daughters basketball team. Look out Rick Pitino.


Sorry gotta Jet!

2022

 Well, 2022 is off to a great start.

Yes I missed posting last week, I had the Covid.


This is what I learned while I was away -

1. Congrats to Orett on his 4th child coming soon, his first daughter.

2. Chrissy and his wife are getting a camper and have a site up in NH. Get ready to PARTAY!

3. We had to put Ronin down, as he had cancer.

4. What is worse - accidently biting your tongue or burning the roof of your mouth?

5. I love good people who do good things for others, Brian and his wife Jenn are great people.

6. I love that TK is spreading his wings - Alumni, Bates or Rags. Doesn't matter where but he ends up at one of those places. Can't wait till he ends up at the Next Page.

7. I recently read that 1 in 6 Americans have had Covid and at the time I thought that was high, now seeing everyone get Covid, I think it may be low.

8. Fantasy football is over, the Red Zone is over but at least we have playoff football.

9. Chrissy is back with the food reviews - gotta give the people what they want.

10. First Betty White now Bob Saget!

11. Catching a BU hockey game at Agannis is always a good time.

12. Chris Leaden is going to start a side hustle for meal prep for the week. Gotta drop him off $35 on Sunday and that gets you 5 meals for the week.

13. Big shoutout to Martell for helping me change out my ceiling fan.

14. If you see Jeffrey, don't speak to loud, as he seems to be hung over for 2 days now.

Taco Bell Wings


Taco bell is no stranger to trying out new and interesting menu items. but straight up chicken wings? and only out for ONE WEEK??? well i had to get down and try them. 5 wings for $6 isn't horrible. they were done in no time, came out hot, very crispy but still juicy. they are breaded and coated with taco bells seasoning that they use on their nacho fries. served with a side of ranch. if this was a permanent item i would get them every time with my usual 8 tacos. i highly suggest you go out and get them this week before they are gone (and then of course brought back every once in a while) 

solid 6.7!

This is what I learned recently:

1. The Matrix movie is meh. Not really sure it needed to be made.

2. I did like the Hawkeye series. Kind of wish it was longer.

3. Nothing quite like running into your brother on Christmas at the Chinese food joint.

4. Man everyone losing their minds over rapid tests, or lack thereof.

6. Ending the year at the tattoo shop seems appropriate.

7. Oh looking for a new car - minimum 40Gs.

4. Athens is a great place to catch a college game, go Dawgs.

7. Blue cheese stuffed peppadews are something that I never knew I actually needed in my life.

8. The Claremont lounge is 100% the stripper graveyard. I am willing to bet the oldest stripper I saw was in her 80s.

9. I wonder if Chrissy bumped into TKs wife down in Aruba?

10. Please tell me you have seen these bizarre posts that Smiddy has been posting on his Instagram?

11. I cannot get used to everyone being so nice and calling me Mr. Derek down there.

12. All my Uber drivers were from NY or NJ, so I guess that many people retire in GA!

13. Coors light is not available everywhere. I had to drink Miller Lites, Mich Ultras, Budweiser heavy and Corona in a fucking can.

14. Senoia is where they tape the Walking Dead and believe me everyone will tell you that when you visit. Then point out all the extras as they walk about town.

15. To Go beers are a fucking thing and should be made available in every state immediately.

16. Tough loss for coach Lundrigan and the Hull Pirates team.

I hope that everyone has a great Turkey day. I mean the turkey this year must taste better since the price is up exponentially.

It is go time

 This months half over. Pretty soon it will be 2022. It can only go up, like the gas prices.


This is what I learned this weekend:

1. TK hates concerts. He can't wrap his head around why you would pay to watch someone play music. Has no problem watching a sporting event though.

2. Joe Martell had never heard of Yodels. Like what kind of world did you grow up in? Probably more of a little Debbie guy.

3. My underground weather guy told me La Nina is pushing her way through and it should be a mild winter. Not so much for the Pacific North West.

4. Congrats to coach Jeffrey on a huge win, thanks in part to Julian's 3 TDs and 2 2point conversions. Moving onto the Super bowl next week in West Bridgewater.

5. I went and saw Eternals, I thought it was pretty good. In no way is it the worst Marvel movie. That distinction still belongs to Thor 2.

6. Is there anything worse than that damn Island boy clip? Like how does that become famous.

7. Wait, the Patriots play the Falcons in ATL on Thursday and I am flying in on Friday? What is wrong with me?

8. In the past I have not really been a fan of the food at Buffalo Wild Wings but I will say they have really stepped it up since being bought out by Arby's.

9. I am more than happy to get a salad from time to time but it does not need to be swimming in dressing.

10. So winters fast approaching and they are saying Covid is going to get worse? HUH? People stay in most of the cold season, alone and miserable watching anything and everything on Netflix.

Oh yeah

 November is always my favorite month.


This is what I learned this weekend:

1. There are only 8 weeks left this year and that is kinda sad.

4. Never did I ever think I would learn so much about Prostate cancer at a bar.

5. Apparently, Rotten Tomatoes is bombing the new Marvel Eternals movie because there is an openly gay super hero. HUH? 

6. Any given Sunday, am I right NFL?

7. All of a sudden everyone wants to head down to Athens for a Georgia game.

8. You guys are not going to believe this but TK is making friends with bartenders.

9. Chrissy is gonna be looking for Natalee Holloway starting this Saturday.

10. Congrats to my youngest brother on his engagement.

8. Chinese food just hits right when that is what you want.

9. Guess who is going to Athens for a Georgia game? Saturday, November 20th vs some stiff of a team.

10. Speaking of Georgia, I have heard rumblings of going to the Worlds Largest outdoor cocktail party next year. Who is in?

11. Have you tried the new fries from Wendy's? Not too bad.

12. Hopefully everyone started their Christmas shopping with all these delays in shipping.

Nor'easter in October

 I guess we should be happy that it is not snow.


Things I learned this weekend:

1. Dune was visually stunning, a bit slow but overall good.

2. Pretty bummed that the Sox didn't make the world series, mostly because I had tickets to game 2.

3. Is leaf peeping season over?

4. Waking up with calf cramps from drinking and being dehydrated could be one of the worst pains as an adult.

5. I got grass seed down so let us pray this rain helps it grow.

6. I had bad pizza guys, like inedible pizza - do not get the pizza at Bates.
