Yes Sean!

I am still here Riccio!

Last week I took off after not hitting a square yet again.


This is what I learned while away:

1. Sean Riccio, lives to break my balls.

2. Shanahan is not a good coach.

3. Talk of Mahomes being in the same category as Tom Brady fires people up.

4. I have received emails, texts and over 10 phone calls from the Red Sox about season tickets.

5. My fence came down on the Cape and I am none to pleased about it.

6. Chrissy is living his best life down in Florida. Rumor has it he is scouting out condos for retirement.

7. Hopefully you picked your fighter because Hooters wings are 100% better than Buffalo Wild Wings. Now if they only had Keno.

8. I heard someone complaining about the lack of snow this winter and I really wanted to punch them in the face.

9. Martells been off the sauce for 18 days and he has me bar hopping every Sunday like he's shipping out to war soon. At least he is consistent.

10. I recently read that picking your nose leads to dementia and Alzheimer's.

11. Giving up coffee for Lent was my worst idea ever. I am starving every day before 9am.

12. I am headed to the Tampa area next month, any bars/restaurant suggestions?

13. Pudding shots are superior to Jello shots. 

14. I've been working so many hours that every day basically feels like Groundhog day.

15.  Ya'll see Drakes meat dropped out there!

16. 27 days till St. Pattys...hopefully it will be warm enough this year at Mikes party.

Yippee

Today is truck day, like who gives a fuck.


This is what I learned this weekend:

1. Bar hopping on a Sunday is just wild.

2. Doing the dishes is a sore subject in some peoples houses.

3. RIP Carl Weathers...there will never be another Dillon!

4. Martell is off the sauce and not drinking during the week, so he says.

5. Speaking of Martell - he is having a Super Bowl party. Also I am referring to super bowl Sunday as square day for this week.

6. Getting fun is old you wake up with new aches and pains everyday.

7. Finally made it to the China. The food was ok.

8. Paddy Barry's still smells like piss as soon as you walk in. Then you use the bathroom and there is a urinal that is in the floor. So it all makes sense.

9. Buffalo Wild Wings or Hooters? Pick your fighter.

10. Chrissy is off jet setting to Florida next week. Hope he brings back some warm weather for us.

Welcome to 2024

 We can all just chalk up that the last week of the year is a wild ride. So for the future I will not be blogging that week.

This is what I learned since 2023 ended:

4. I heard Martell is working as a bar back part time at the Hoffy.

Zero Dark December

 I mean this darkness is something. But yet the shortest day of the year is only 17 days away and then we can get a little bit more sunshine everyday.


This is what I learned this weekend:

1. FSU got robbed! There is no way that an undefeated team doesn't make it over a 1 loss team. Does the schedule not mean anything?

3. Hope everyone can make the coat drive next Friday.

This is what I learned since last time I was here:

1. In my older age I have tried to be more chill when it comes to traffic but god damn I CAN'T - these drivers have only gotten worse.

2. The Goal Post may have colder beers than the Fowler House...that is eye opening.

3. My Golden Tee game is slipping. My putting is gone. Just not there.

4. Glad to see Chris Leaden is out there golfing when its 40 degrees out there.

5. I say it every year but knock it the fuck off with the pumpkin spice flavored everything.

6. Stuffed pork loin is underrated.

7. I don't think Veterans Day gets enough love.

This is what I learned this weekend:

2. Nothing worse than an ingrown hair on your face.

3. Some people adult better than others.

4. Why the fuck are we still moving clocks and arbitrarily changing times?

5. Bruins finally lost in regulation, so now we have the Cs.

7. Chrissy is out here working 3 jobs- 1 full time and 2 part timers! That's a family man.

8. Still hearing rumors that Smiddy is coming back to BU.

9. Also back to the Patriots, as bad as Frick and Frack ran the show last season, the team averaged 21.41 points per game. This season they are averaging 15 points per game. So were they the problem?

10. When did Xmas start November 1st and not after Thanksgiving?

11. Nothing makes me smile like random texts from people you haven't chatted with in a bit.

12. Has anyone used Warby Parker for glasses before?

1. Sometimes being an adult means chips and dip for dinner.

2. Nothing secretly excites me as much as buckets of beer for $15...5 beers and I am my own bar tender? FUCK YEAH!

5. Don't forget the Powerball is up over 600 Mill!
