Beer Abby #20: Playing the Playoffs from New England to San Francisco January 12, 2012 – Posted in: Beer Abby, Blog, Featured Columns – Tags: Beer Abby, Bru-Hed, Mike Pascale
Wow, where did the time go? Seems like 2011 was just a couple weeks ago. Oh yeah, it was. Now we only have 49 weeks till the world ends! Even worse, about 45 weeks till the stupid Presidential election. Wouldn’t that suck if you were elected and then the world blew up before you could even take office? I’m waiting for one of the ultra-religious candidates to to pull out just for that reason. Guaranteed comedy.
Anyway, let’s get to your questions.
Did you hear about the Papa Johns employee that took an Asian customer’s order and typed “Miss Chinky Eyes” on her receipt? What did you think?
Dear Bunkie eyes:
Yes, and I saw a picture of the customer. I thought her eyes were more Korean.
So who are you rooting for in the NFL playoffs?
Well, let’s break it down by game:
Giants vs. Packers: Though I live on the Left Coast, I’m originally from New Yawk, so who do ya think I’m gonna root for? Plus, while Green Bay is a nice city and all, QB Aaron Rodgers has become too Aaron the Arrogant. And their fubsy coach seems to have the personality of a lawn chair. Gotta go wit’ the G-MEN!
Saints vs. 49ers: Okay, everyone who knows me knows I’m straight as an arrow and have no desire for Frisco frollickers. Not that there’s anything wrong with that, just that I’d rather have dental work than visit that place. (There are hot chicks there, but who knows what they want? Last time I tried to pick up a lez lass, she kicked in my cajones. And of course, coach Jim Harbaugh is a dick. Now in New Orleans, there are scores of straight and bi-babes willing to lift up their shirts and show off their golden globes for stupid beads. What could be better? Saints go marchin’ in and then out with a victory.
Ravens vs. Texans: Normally I root for the underpup (see above), but the Texans are just too dang new. Gotta pay their dues a few more years. Plus, Houston is godawful hot and humid in the summer. Baltimore, however, is the home of Steve Geppi and Diamond Comics, world’s only major comic book distributor. Since this site is run and read by goofy comics fans, I gotta bless da boids. So I say rah, rah Ravens and say “nevermore” to the Texans’ playoff run.
Patriots vs. Broncos: Tough one here. Tom Brady is overrated and everyone thinks he’s touchdown Jesus. But same with Tim Tebow–can you say, “over exposure? Brady is married to a supermodel and pisses me off. But she’s a hottie. The coach of New England, Bill Belidick, was caught cheating. And he mumbles, never smiles, and acts like he’s never happy. Denver is a great town, with great scenery and lots of loose, hippie college chicks in Boulder. New England is–well, what? Not a city or town, not a state. A bunch of states? A “region.” How friggin’ vague is that? The weather sucks and the people talk funny. But I can’t stand to listen to anymore Tebow Time trash, especially from the hypocritical Bible-thumpin’ whiteys who cream over him. So I’m goin’ wit’ the Patsies. But barely.
Crap, I yapped so much we only got room for one more:
Chartists and analysts are predicting a good year for the stock market. What’s your number one pick?
East Rutherford, NJ
Tough call. Pepsi (symbol PEP) makes some of my favorite snacks, but no beer. Anheuser-Busch In Bev (BUD) makes my favorite beer but no snacks–and they allowed themselves to be bought out by friggin’ Belgians. I like the casinos like WYNN, MGM and LVS but they take too much of my dough as it is. Hmmm…Okay, I’ll go with Rick’s Cabaret Int’l, the only publicly-traded chain of strip clubs! That way, next time I visit one, I can say to the hottie givin’ me a lap dance, “I’m a stockholder…How ’bout I hold your bonds while you stuff ’em in my face?” Yeah, that’ll work!
