    I don't know if it would be a good thing if it got easier. I wish it did, though.

    In case anyone was wonder whether they should spend their Yankee dollars on some American "Oktoberfest" beers, here are two I've had recently. I think you could keep your money in your pocket in the case of Sam Adams' Oktoberfest (Märzen) which just had a weird flavor that wasn't particularly pleasant. It wasn't bad, just meh. I expected better from Sam Adams. I'll give it a 5.5. These guys will describe what's going on with the beer better than I can: https://www.ratebeer.com/beer/samuel-adams-octoberfest/167/ A full step up is Sierra Nevada's Miltenbeger Oktoberfest Märzen, which means I'm giving it a 6.5. I might try it again to see if I'm being a little harsh there, but only if it's on deep discount. It's a very decent beer but not a premium beer. I did have a distinct flashback to drinking German beer in Germany during one mug early on in the taste-test process, and that has to count for something. Here's what the experts have to say: https://www.ratebeer.com/beer/sierra-nevada--miltenberger-oktoberfest-2017/535171/

    LOL ... One of my favorite parts of the series is where the old guy argues that tearing down the ladder was no big deal (he claims his clan didn't do it) because he saw the other hunter manage to get in the stand without it ... :ek:

    I think this gets mentioned in the video above, but the reasoning of the guys on camera as they're trying to sort out their problems is "First come, first served. We've been here since '59." No lie. That's an actual quote from Video One. Catch it here, starting at 8:15: -----LMAO https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jSBPsMCmMJA

    It was something rigged to an airbag device. I think you can see the paint container (a bag of some type?) swinging in the video after it explodes.

    LOL...Both good posts ... The guy sure isn't in a hurry to get off the property, is he? Just another minor inconvenience in the day of a crusty old fart. Wipe off and move on. :wink If I remember, both he and the property owner got citations which went away if they kept their noses clean for some period of time. I'll put this here for lack of a better place, and since we're on the subject. It does have some good laughs. Public land, Minnesooota. There's a fourth video in the series which hasn't been completed yet if I read the comments correctly. Sounds like maybe this ended up in court and we're waiting for the final edits .... LOL ...:pop: Check out videos One and Three if you have time. I only skimmed Three. It probably has some gold. But I thought this one was the most entertaining if I had to choose quickly. :wink <iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/TpvupD6Nsz0" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

    Post some hunting content and watch the numbers plummet ... I'm not kidding. Look at the views and replies to hunting threads compared to non-hunting. I'm not sure if it's funny, merely amusing, hysterical or just plain sad ... LOL

    I don't have a head for statistics--or even for sports trivia--so I have no idea how anybody comes up with information like this: "After a loss of more than 10 points, the three teams Joe Slobodnik has coached have gone on to win each of the next four games by 17 points or more every year his wife was pregnant." Last night's trivia wasn't quite that obscure, but you could tell the play-by-play guy and the color guy were impressed ... LOL

    Huh. That's interesting. One of the sideline babes last night made a point about Denver (I think) last night. It was either they have trouble after a big win or go on a tear after a loss. I guess it would be good for me to remember which---LOL--- but it was an impressive bit of trivia nonetheless.

    I'll have to study up on the black-out rules and the programming algorithm. I'm scared to death that if I give up NFL Sunday Ticket, somebody in a pointy hat will decide I need to watch 1/3 Carolina Panthers, 1/3 Cleveland Browns, and 1/3 New England Patriots.

    Haven't seen any of that game. That's not your local option is it? I'm hoping the tea leaves didn't mandate you couldn't see a Dallas away game. That would be even more screwed up than I already think the system is.

    "Leverage" Another stupid call (rule). There was a similar call yesterday in college ball, although it wasn't explained. Defender jumped in the air on a kick for points (as best I remember, but it could have been a punt) and was called for it, although I didn't see where he even touched anyone, much less used leverage or jumped over anyone. Probably was the Ole Miss or the Texas game.

    Freakin' fumble rule. Mass confusion. Even Pereira says the Cowboys' first TD should have come from the defense. <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">I don&#39;t think I&#39;ve ever heard Mike Pereira correctly make a call</p>&mdash; Ryan Calvert (@RyanCalvert34) <a href="https://twitter.com/RyanCalvert34/status/909539887115771904">September 17, 2017</a></blockquote> <script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script> LOL ...

    BTW, the Redskins are playing in LA and the stadium is half-empty. Even though it would be idiotic, I could see the NFL imposing a blackout in NC if the Redskins' stadium were half empty. Maybe the Dallas-Denver game is just supposed to be better, or of more interest. So do blackout rules mean people in Denver and/or Dallas are watching Washington or the west coast game? If not, who are the poor bastards watching the alternate games, and what did they do wrong in life?

    Okay, so here's a question: Why am I watching the Cowgirls and the Broncos in the late game on local TV (Fox), instead of the Redskins and the Rams (more local) which Fox announcers are promo-ing as one of the alternate games? Isn't Fox also broadcasting it? Or just promo-ing? They have a West Coast Game alternative as well, so if that's anybody's late game I'd be curious to know. If Fox is broadcasting the Redskins, why are't they airing it here? I can see a Panthers blackout here, but not the Redskins. Really? Does anybody know how this works? My local game on ABC this afternoon was the Panthers, naturally, but the local Fox game was the Bears and the Buccaneers. I think I can drive to Philadelphia to watch the Yiggles and KC quicker than I can drive to Tampa to watch Chicago. (Though who would want to?) I might need to know how Fox and ABC handle "local" games and blackouts for the future. I'm hanging in there with the NFL Sunday Ticket for one more year, more by accident than not. I thought I had cancelled it since DTV CS and TS was worse than useless last year. Let's see if they can get their act together with their mobile app this time around ... :rage: I probably won't put up with their incompetence forever, even if it means I'm stuck with only "local" football. Enter your thoughts in the box below.

    I think I still have some skunk scent from 1983. It's the kind that you have to mix two solutions together to make the scent. Next time I'm over at storage I'll have to go looking for it because this reminds me I haven't seen it lately. I had some good experiences with it, and some funny ones. :-) Not sure they make the two-bottle stuff anymore. Too bad. Now you have to be more careful. LOL

    Did anyone see the Texas or Ole Miss games? I should have made a note of it at the time so I wouldn't be blanking on which game I'm talking about now, but here we are .... I'm leaning toward it being the Texas game because I remember the play as pretty decisive. It was a pass over the middle in the red zone finally ruled incomplete but initially picked up by the defense as a fumble. I think it was a clear fumble but the announcers predictably went mute after the ruling and I see nothing about it in the press this morning, which is weird because it gave the offense the extra play they needed to finally score to either go ahead or tighten things up. I do know whichever team fumbled went on to win, so ... Anybody know what I'm talking about? ---LOL Just thought it was weird that there's no discussion about it that I can find.
