NFL News:

  • Break out the Vitamin-D SADS lamps, because Brandon Marshall has signed a one-year deal to play for the Seahawks.
    • The idea seems to be to use him in goal line situations where his size could help block out defenders or help him reign in short passes for scores.
    • In a 13-year career, he has never played for a playoff team.
  • Kam Chancellor is scheduled to have his neck scanned in late-June to determine his eligibility to be removed from the injured reserve list.
    • He says he’ll “listen to my body” about continuing his career, although he feels he is in his prime and has some good years left to contribute.
  • As some idiot predicted last week, the new anthem policy & NFL secret poll have come up at Colin Kaepernick’s collusion hearing.
    • Looking worse for the owners is the impression they caved in to Donald Trump:
      • “This is a very winning, strong issue for me,” the President told Jones, according to Andrew Beaton of the Wall Street Journal. “Tell everybody, you can’t win this one. This one lifts me.”
    • The new policy is also being used as evidence, as it directly prevent public displays during the anthem.

As you may not know, even though I’m Beerguyrob I’m not just fond of a pint, I’m also fond of a dram.

Well, today the fine folks at Macallan released a bottle of scotch porn that, like most porn stars, only a select few could actually purchase for their own enjoyment.

For example, this one cost $130,000.

The Macallan 72 Years Old in a Lalique decanter was released today,

  

and while a starting price hasn’t been issued, the 2002 version, distilled on the 26th January 1946 and bottled at full cask strength without chill-filtration from a single cask, when it was 56 years old,

started at $17,000 when it first came out but is currently valued at $40-50,000 on the resale market. A shot-sized bottle recently sold for £1250 on a Whisky auction site. The period immediately post-WWII is considered one of Macallan’s finest, with more smokey aromas and flavours in the barley as a result of increased peat use for distillation, because the post-war rationing of coal made it impossible for mass production of large volumes of whisky.

But for true liquor-porn connoisseurs, one bottled in a Lalique decanter,

recently sold at auction for $460,000 USD.

The 2018 release is limited to 600 individually numbered decanters worldwide, and will be made be available from August 2018.


Tonight’s sports:

  • NHL:
    • Capitals at Vegas – 8:00PM | NBCSN / CBC
  • NBA:
    • Game 1 is Thursday in Golden State
  • MLB:
    • Astros at Yankees – 6:30PM | ESPN / TSN3
    • Angels at Tigers – 7:00PM | Sportsnet360

We have reached the soft point in the offseason, where there’s not enough news, training camp or other sports to fill up the day.

And my history degree dredges up nothing I can use today.

SEE YOU TOMORROW!

So, this work until 65 or so thing is really losing its luster.

Don T

By 65 I expect to have had a stroke and milking it for sympathy profesionally.

No fucking shit. It’ll kill me by 65, but at least I can retire.

201K needs to be a 401K so it is more like 68 anyway.

I swear to god, Jeremy Roenicke’s face is just gonna fall off of his head one of these days.

Yeeesh.

I hate watching that joyless prick.

WCS

The Washington Capitals now have as many Stanley Cup Final game wins in their franchise history as the Vegas Golden Knights.

theeWeeBabySeamus

And yet, they now have home ice.

Stop being mean, Yinzer!!!!!!!!!

BrettFavresColonoscopy

Home ice is just a cocktail awaiting bourbon.

Fronkenshteen

This seems banner-ish.

That was one hell of a 3rd period for the Caps. Who won all those faceoffs for them in the last minute?
