I got an email today from wolverine studios the company that makes the SIM. They have announced the release date for their 2018 update. November 20th will be the day. I will preorder tonight when I get home. Hopefully we can then start our season no later then December 1st.

As we get closer to November 20th I will provide further details and get to depth charts and minutes.

Yeah - you'd have to go searching to find my list out of state.

Did you ever try Brooklyn Brewery's stuff? Their lager was one of my go tos back when I was in state.

Drummond just tied Shaq for 11th all time in career 20+rebound games, and Drummond is still only 25 years old. His FT% is almost double his career average. He's averaging 2 assists and 2 steals per game more than his career average. Currently putting up the best FG% to go along with the best defensive rating of his career at a miniscule 96. He's not forcing things or chucking shots and instead taking what the defense gives and getting his teammates involved. His team is 8-3.

Pretty sure I had this exact beer on tap at MSG last week. It was fantastic. The two long time season ticket holders sitting next to me bought me a second at half time. :D

Ommegang and New Belgium are running things right now IMO.
Brooklyn Brewery changed their formula a few years ago and the quality was cut. Miss that Pennant Ale though.

The MPs coming through. I miss Ommegang. Hard to get it out here. I should try though. The Belgian styles are my favorites. Unibroue makes some really good stuff to.

the double ipa "juice bomb" kick in new england is the way to go man. You will never go back (it can get pricey though the single cut which was ridiculous goes for about $26 for a 4 pack :lol: )...I'm not talking hops in terms of bitterness, when you think IPA's they don't even feel like IPA's. They are sit outside on a nice summer/fall/spring day beers. They are really easy to drink...lot of citrus/fruity type notes to them.

I got myself in trouble a few weeks ago. Picked up a growler of 8% pumpkin beer and drank nearly the whole thing in one sitting. First time since high school that I was really hungover.
