This week’s Going for 2 started with a somber note as I gave a tribute to my former co-host Chewie who in his lifetime gave zero #hawttakes. For that alone, he should be treasured.
Sharona was ill, so I ran a solo show with the assistance of rising fantasy football star “Jersey Jen”. We covered her MFL10 obsession, her being a Cowboys fan in Jersey, not drinking swill beer like that Chris Heil character and in the final ten minutes, a very timely talk about the Six Feet Under finale.
Beer moment: I purchased a “closeout” trio of Three Philosophers, which was a three-pack of the style from Ommegang with a 2011, 2012, and 2013 bottle. I’m attempting to “cask” or “age” beers but I prefer to “drink” them. I drank the 2013 during this show.
The beer is a slightly unusual quad in that it has 2% of “Liefmans Kriek” which is cherry booze included. Most quads are booming in their alcohol content. This one’s 9.7%.
There were supposed to be three fantasy football “philosophers” on the show but there were only two, unless you’re into that “in spirit” thing with Chewie.
