Alright I’m only like 2 months late, but at some point I will be back to writing on a regular basis. The itch to write is quietly crawling back. So as per usual let’s do a rapid recap of things we may have missed in the last 2 months or whatever.
The Patriots lost the Super Bowl. I was more excited by that statement then just saying the Eagles won the Super Bowl.
The Cavaliers traded basically their whole team for a brand new bunch of guys. In a small sample size so far it seems like a brilliant move. They got younger and removed the toxic locker room struggles. They still won’t challenge Golden State (Or dumb Houston), but they probably will make it back to the NBA Finals now.
The college basketball season has been an absolute mess. No team has separated themselves from the pack and there may be more teams able to win the tournament this year than ever before. Match-ups are going to play a big role in who advances. I think it could be a year we see a 16 seed get really close to beating a 1 seed, but the streak continues another year.
The winter Olympics are in full swing and the United States has been a rather large disappointment so far. A country that has not finished outside the top 4 in total medal count in the last 6 winter Olympics is likely to do just that this year. But, that doesn’t mean that there hasn’t been a whole lot of excitement at these games. If nothing else, it’s always exciting to realize that curling is a sport every 4 years.
I need to talk about 2 beers that I have had recently that I found to be both interesting and very tasty. Modern Times City of the Dead Nitro and a collaboration between Offshoot brewing and Mason Aleworks known as Zero Moustafa. City of the Dead is a spectacular big stout with cocoa nibs, almonds and sea salt. On Nitro it may have been the smoothest beer I have ever tasted. Combine that with the amazing chocolate flavor and this beer is like having a piece of pure chocolate bar awesomeness. Zero Moustafa is an IPA with zero IBUs. Which is something I have never heard of even being possible. Then again, brewers are constantly pushing the boundaries to come up with the next big thing. I can honestly say that I have never tasted an IPA quite like it and I recommend anyone who can find it to give it a try.
As Always, Go Bruins!!!
