Well the Giants won the Superbowl and I extend to them lukewarm congratulations. Mainly because I'm not a huge football fan. I mean, if I'm rooting for a football team, it's definitely the Eagles but I'm a huge hockey fan (Go Flyers!) so come Stanley Cup time I'm pretty much rabid. I did watch the game in between shots of tequila and stuffing my face with goodies and I think I paid more attention to the commercials (Doritos anyone?). Although, I will say the most exciting part of the game was when it looked like Tom Brady hurt his shoulder. I thought "My goodness! How WILL he brush his lustrous girl hair?" Then I figured he'll either pay someone to do it or Gisele will do it for him. It's a hard life he leads.
Of course I watched the half-time show and I must say, it's amazing what they can do nowadays with the reanimation of corpses. I also love how some people are up in arms about the "singer" M.I.A. who apparently flipped the bird and cursed while "singing". C'mon people, really? Most of us didn't know who she was prior to or during the half-time show and now we're making a big deal about this? (which was exactly her goal). Let her fade back into obscurity, keep collecting royalties from 'Pineapple Express', and move on. Besides, flipping the bird is practically a sign of affection anymore. I was more worried about seeing Madonna's hoohaa or watching that Roman guy on the tightrope-thing break his neck on live TV.
Now that one of the most manly "holidays" is in the past tense we now look forward to one of the most feminine ones. Valentine's Day is in 8 days fellas and ladies(equal rights on this blog!). If your man wants flowers well, you GET him flowers!!

This Tuesday, the Lucky 13 Homebrew club meeting will be held at the Grey Lodge. Brewers of all experience levels are encouraged to join to learn more about the art and science of brewing. You can make new friends and members are encouraged to bring a sample of their homebrews for other to taste and comment on! Who knows? This meeting could be the beginning of your worldwide beer empire!! Remember us when you make it big...we'll settle for free beer for life and the occasional t-shirt.
On Friday it's "Czech your Beer!" with Staropramen. Coming at you straight from Prague (gorgeous city--on my bucket list), Czech Republic, Staropramen is a Czech pilsner. If you come out and buy a Staropramen you get a commemorative glass plus other goodies too. One commemorative glass per customer while supplies last (greedy). I guess I'll have to substitute a beer and glass from Prague for actually seeing the real thing until one day when I'm swimming in money and power. *Sigh* One day.....
