2015 College Football Bowl Challenge

The 2015 College Football Bowl Season is underway. In case you missed it there were 6 bowl games on 12/19/15 to get us started. Six down, 487 more to go. Actually there are 40 bowl games this season, five more than 2011 when I first attempted (and completed) the challenge.

I do not know if I will complete all games this season but so far I am on pace at this early stage. It takes more time and effort than you would think, we will see. Cheers.


Sports Bars / NFL Sunday Ticket

Who has the best sports bar in Knoxville? Must include NFL Sunday Ticket to be eligible, I mean come on.

Ever since Latitude 35 closed downtown I have been looking for a place to watch out of market NFL games, sorry Titans. Wild Wings is supposed to open another location downtown soon but until then I need a convenient place to drink and watch the games.

Mellow Mushroom? Fieldhouse Social? Please add favorites via comments, thanks.


Day of Rage IV

So this is a few months late but it's not like we are on top of things around here lately. This year went slightly better than 2014, meaning no bodily harm to any participants. There were three finalists this year, not four. Order of finishers: HL, LVL, M. Everyone agrees that this should be our last D.O.R., though months after the debacle there is talk of a 5 year anniversary edition next year with cask strength Maker's to mark the occasion. WTF? We will see. There are before and after (bottle) photos but Blogger or my laptop are not cooperating today - the first time in over a year when I decide to post here, figures.

Prick points were assigned, trinkets were awarded and a badge of valor was on display straight from Loretto, KY. Then more prick points were awarded throughout the day. Lies are being spread at this very moment that yours truly is odds on favorite for 2015 POY but I can assure you this is a highly disputed farce of shit. The new POY trophy is missing some qualified, overdue names who are more worthy of this title.
