THERE IS A GOD: NEW BELGIUM BREWERY BEERS COMING TO GEORGIA


I just got the good news yesterday from some friends that Fat Tire, 1554 and Mothership Wit will be available for consumption starting May 11th. (the clouds break open and the sun reappears, angels sing in the background) OH...MY...GOD! I've been a huge fan of Fat Tire and 1554 since my high school days when my buddy Andrew introduced me to the frothy craft beers. The only way you could get them back then was by either living in Colorado or illegally bringing them across state lines. Guilty as charged.

Here is some information via The Full Pint about the Georgia unveiling...

Fort Collins, CO - April 27, 2009 - New Belgium Brewing, the third-largest craft brewer in the U.S., today announced that 22-ounce bombers of Fat Tire, 1554 and Mothership Wit will be available throughout Georgia beginning May 11. The roll-out will begin with bomber bottles for approximately 60 days, to be followed by draft.


I'm okay with 22 oz bombers to start off. I drink the NewCastle ones all the time. Now if only we can get gambling, and I'm talking full out sports betting and craps tables and all that other shit legalized here in the great state of Georgia, I might actually start to like this place even better. Somewhere, underground, Governor Sonny Perdue is weeping into blood soaked slave clothes knowing his control over Georgia is slowly slipping away. Thank God!

OVECHKIN MIGHT BE MY FAVORITE ATHLETE

Alexander Ovechkin is the best player in hockey and dominates his sport in a way that only Lebron James and Tiger Woods can relate. He may not be the prettiest guy to look at but the Ruskie has charisma, grit, and the ability to score no matter where he is on the ice. It's hard for me to say these things too when I'm a total homer for fellow Russian and current Atlanta Thrasher Ilya Kovalchuk. What I like most about Ovechkin is he doesn't give a shit. He plays his game, he throws his body around and scores hat tricks in the playoffs that almost brings the Verizon Center roof crumbling down because the crowd has Ovie Mania!

And oh yeah, he joins in singing "You Suck!" with the crowd...


How can you not root for a guy like that?

Just take a look at Capitals Reporter Lisa Hillary's reaction when she thinks she sees Ovechkin...


Sorry Lisa, that ain't no rat. It's the guy who could bring a Cup to D.C.

-priceless question by Galifianakis, one I don't think I would have the balls to ask the young "acteress" Portman. Bravo Zach, bravo.
