    Favorite U.S. Cities to Visit

    What are some of your favorite cities to visit in the U.S.? What makes them special for you? Would you recommend others to visit? My family and I recently took a trip down to St. Louis. It was our first visit there, and it is definitely one of my favorite cities now. There is a lot to do for everyone...my three kids had a wonderful time and have not stopped talking about it. Aside from the Arch (which is pretty cool), there's Grant's Farm, the City Museum, and the new CityGarden downtown. There's a lot more that we didn't get to do and will be going back for sure. Busch Stadium is a beautiful downtown baseball park, and the downtown area springs to life on game nights.

    Who Is Your Favorite Stooge

    I think some of the funniest moments were with Curly, but I found Shemp to be one of my favorites. Interesting fact was that he was one of the originals, along with Moe and Larry. He left to do some solo stuff but eventually came back when Curly's health started failing. Curly's life was pretty sad, reading about it. He was very self-conscious about his appearance, his shaved head and baby-face looks being perfect for the Stooges. He began drinking heavily, was married and divorced several times, and started suffering a series of strokes.

    Now I don't feel too old. My daughter starts 3rd grade, my sons starts 1st, and my youngest daughter starts pre-school.

    The Finer Things In Life

    QUOTE (FlaSoxxJim @ Aug 20, 2009 -> 06:43 AM) Sam's Oktober and Winter lagers are always solid. Sad to see they are still trotting out the putrid cherry wheat though. Has it improved any? Out of all the special releases and seasonals they do/did, that one and their cranberry lambic were the most unpalatable I think. Also regarding Sam, are there any fans of the Old Fezziwig Christmas ale? It's been years since I've had it since they only seem to include it in the holiday 12-packs and it usually includes cr@p like the cranberry lambic. I used to be able to find an occasional bomber, but haven't in a long time. I have a feeling it would be good not great if I had it now, now that there are so many excellent winter beers available. I don't mind the Cherry Wheat. It's not one of my favorites, but it's okay for one at a time. I do agree that the Cranberry Lambic is not good. As far as the Old Fezziwig, I'm a huge fan. Love the spices. I know it was in the winter pack last year, but I don't think I've ever seen it by itself. I wish Sam Adams would package a 12-pack of the Winter Lager, Holiday Porter, Cream Stout, and Old Fezziwig. Leave out the lambic and Boston Lager (you can get that by itself easily).

    The Finer Things In Life

    I have to agree that fall is probably the best season for beer. I love the Octoberfests and darker beers. Sam Adams already has a Harvest Mix out with Octoberfest, Brown Ale, Cherry Wheat, and Dunkelweizen.

    Only the thought of kielbasa and beer can make us stop worrying about the Sox.
  15. Jose will man up and be more effective than he has been, but will still walk a few. He'll be done after 6. Bullpen will step in and do their thing...the good thing that is. The offense will touch up Greinke a bit. Sox win a close one 4-3.

    Favorite U.S. Cities to Visit

    Not necessarily a city, but I lived for about 5 years on the Outer Banks of North Carolina. My parents still live there, so we try to go out once a year. The summers are very nice with bright sunshine, hot weather, and awesome beaches. The only drawback is the crowds at times. September is one of the nicest months to visit as it is still warm, the ocean is quite swimmable, the fishing is great, and the crowds are quite thinned out.

    Hoping the Tigers struggle and the Sox start winning a lot is what we are doing right now.

    Absolutely disgusted with last night's offensive performance, I am.

    Freddy is starting.

    I thought he looked okay. It was actually about what I expected, but I was hoping he'd make it through 5. The offense let him down by not taking advantage of the bad pitches by Meche. I'm not saying a pitcher going 4-1/3 and giving up 6 ER is good...it's not. But, I feel better with Freddy going back up there than Contreras. Freddy made about a half dozen bad pitches and paid for almost all of them. Contreras of late throws a lot of balls and walks way too many.

    You're The Manager

    Okay, so say Ozzie is suspended for the rest of the season for well, being Ozzie. No one else wants to fill out the lineup cards after reading too much Soxtalk. The phone rings, and it's KW. "I need ya," he says. "You need to set my lineups for the rest of the season." So, considering the roster we have now, what's you're lineup? Against righties; against lefties; resting Thome, Dye, Konerko, etc. Have fun with it.

    can we use Carrasco in the 8th?

    QUOTE (LittleHurt05 @ Aug 18, 2009 -> 11:51 AM) I think we can definitely use Carrasco in the 8th, especially if we dont want to win the division Carrasco isn't going to lose it for the team if he comes in to pitch in the 8th. I wouldn't want to see Carrasco used in those situations as he is our best long relief guy. But he seems like the type of pitcher that would get it done where ever you put him in.

    Just consolidate Rhode Island, Connecticut, and Massachusets into one state...just call it New England.
