Beer Abby #22 “The Most Boring Week Of The Season” January 26, 2012 – Posted in: Beer Abby, Blog, Featured Columns – Tags: Alan Greenspan, Barack Obama, Beer Abby, Fed rates, FOMC, Mitt Romney, Newt Gingrich, NFL, Pro Bowl, Republican Primaries, Super Bowl
Well, here we are…Two weeks before the greatest game in the world–bored out of our skulls. It’s a shame the NFL geniuses decided on hype over logic and went with this “media build-up” crap instead of going with the momentum like they used to. Making it worse, they put the Pro Bowl on before the Super Bowl, which of course means the game featuring “the best players in the league” doesn’t include anyone from “the best two teams in the league”! Ugh.
But that’s no reason not to help YOU idiots get thru this boredom with the best advice in this or any other league! (Even for you few chicks out there who’re outta my league. Ha!) It’s a short one this week, so let’s get right to ‘em:
Who do you think was the overall winner of all the Republican Primaries?
Without a doubt, the winner was Barack Obama. All those morons are helping him more than the GOP! (That’s “Greedy, Old and Pasty.”) What a shame!
I just saw on the news that the Fed said rates will remain low until late 2014. That means interest rates will stay absurdly low for another two years! Where should I put my money?
Put your money where your mouth is: Stock up on non-perishables and canned goods–you’ll need ‘em for 12/21/12. If nothing happens that day, have a “We Survived!” party with your neighbors. Since they’ll have probably dumped everything in anticipation of the end of time, they’ll be happy for the free food! Then you can make some much-needed changes like making them give back your borrowed stuff and get rid of those noisy pets. Win-win!
I took your advice last week and bet on the 49ers to win by three and lost my ass. I need my money back. Who do you like for the Pro Bowl?
San Francisco, CA
Dude, if you’re going to bet with me, ya gotta do all or nothin’. I said Ravens by 7, which covered. (The bonus was to dip Pats with the over, which lost, but that was an extra. Even if you did that, it was a wash.) I said SF by 3 (but rooted for the Giants–CONGRATS, G-MEN!!!!) but said I’d do a teaser with NY and the over, which won!
So I went 2-1. If you did all, you went 2-2 and you’re only out the vig. Your ass should be intact.
As for the Pro Bowl, avoid it! The only reason to ever bet on that game was because you lost the farm on the Super Bowl and needed to break even. Now that it’s been moved to the week before, there’s no real reason to touch it. Unless you’re a gambling addict, in which case I’ll bet you end up losing dough no matter who you take!
(I’ll be rootin’ for the NFC, of course.) Go get help: call Anonymous Gamblers and buy some decent picks!
I got engaged and now am helping my future wife plan the wedding. I went out with her to Bed, Bath & Beyond to put stuff on the registry and actually had a good time! I thought I would hate it, but we had fun. Am I gay?
Clever touch with the stock symbol. Wish I’d thought of it. To answer your question, it depends. If you enjoyed it because you were spending time with your bride-to-be, no prob. If you actually enjoyed looking at plates, glasses, silverware, bedding, kitchen utensils and that kinda crap, you should just give her your sack o’ nuts now and start borrowing her clothes!
Okay, last one before I go back to ESPN:
Why do you insult people in the “disclaimer” at the bottom of the column?
Because I insult people throughout the column, so I need to be consistent. Besides, none of you ADD-addled losers read that part anyway, so what’s the diff? If you do read it, give a comment!
