And you haven't even been to the grocery store yet have you?
What are you thinking? That can
This whole week, I haven't know what day it was. Two days ago, I got home from work and said to Lady BFC "man, it feels like a Thursday, and it's only Tuesday." Turns out :SPOILER ALERT: it WAS Thursday. Fuck. And it doesn't help that we had a preseason

Greetings. Beerguyrob's away for some Canadian holiday (wait, it's not Canada or Victoria Day… Family Day? That's a thing? Damn it Canada, you make it so easy to make jokes!).
So it's up to your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man (man, I wish) me. Sorry about that. And now, the news!
• The Giants released

Scotchy is out tonight
Let's get after it!.
Oh shit, 200 word limit, so my Dad died. It's cool it was a long time ago and he smoked way too much.
