Since the last time I wrote something… I got married, the Astros won the World Series, a huge tax bill with demoralizing incentives is about to signed into law and Trae Young became the best player in College Basketball this year. I’m not about to get into politics on my blog so let’s cover some sports… and maybe some beer.
Last Night Trae Young scored 26 points and dished out 22 assists in something like 26 minutes of play. That’s absurd. I don’t care if they were playing a pee wee football team, those numbers are impressive. What’s more impressive is that Young scores with such ease and poise that he looks like a 5th year Senior, not a lowly Freshman. Young is currently leading the country in scoring and assists. While those numbers are bound to dip a little come conference season, don’t expect his numbers to drop out of the top 5 in either category. Trae Young is must watch TV.
Hey the Astros won the World Series in 7 games over the Dodgers. It was a great series up until a very uneventful game 7. That’s all to be said about that. #AngelsWorldSeries2018.
Biggest news in the last 2 months has been that I got married. The wedding was spectacular and my bride was more beautiful than I could have ever imagined. But, lets get to the best part of the entire event. The BEER!!!!!
The beer we brewed for the wedding was a big bold Honey Imperial Russian Stout. We assumed the ABV would be in the 9% range, but after doing the final calculations it came in at a solid 10%. To say that we were excited would be a major understatement. The entire brewing process was a blast for us and of course we heard nothing but good things from the people who tasted it. Alas, we have tons of beer left to drink before the weather gets too hot to consume such a big stout. Eat, Drink, Be Mobley IRS got a 5/5 from me and since I’m the only person who has rated it it is the greatest beer ever. Two Thumbs UP!!!!!
One last note. Some people have put UCLA Basketball hunkered deep onto the bubble conversation this year. Sadly, with the suspensions they just lack the depth to compete against quality teams. I don’t want to place the blame on Steve Alford just yet, but this is UCLA and that means win or you’re out. I wouldn’t be surprised to see Alford fired if they don’t at least win one NCAA tournament game this year. That is assuming they win enough “quality” games to get into the tournament. #GoBruins
