Wooooooooo hooooooooooo!!! (and Red Poppy)


It's a little too late to be cracking a cold one right now, but you can be sure I'll be celebrating tomorrow. My big win celebration beer for USC basketball is Lost Abbey's Red Poppy, since we also beat ucla last year on the day of the Red Poppy release.

This year's Red Poppy is such a beautiful beer. It bursts with tons of sour cherry flavor, a puckering sourness and a dry finish. Absolutely glorious. The only negative with regards to this beer is that I can't afford more of it, because I'd drink it every day. A perfect beer to celebrate a win with over that other school across town.

Do you have anything which would help take some of the sting off of Manchester United getting their ass kicked this morning?

I'm thinking a growler of Ruination, or perhaps a Nugget Nectar. LOL

Don't worry Kevin:

"Walk on, walk on with hope in your heart, and you'll never walk alone,
you'll never walk alone!"

Couldn't pass up this opportunity. For the record Man U still up three with a game in hand, doubt 'Pool will catch em.

I was telling Steve about a chant that goes, "Well it's all gone quiet over there" chanted to the tune if you're happy and you know it clap your hands. I think I heard it coming from the Scousers yesterday.

Good match if you fancy Liverpool. We just got outplayed, but anytime its United and Liverpool throw everything out the door, sort of like USC-UCLA.
