  1. Man, I’m really tempted to grab the boy out of school and make the 3 hour drive to TD Garden for the game.  Tickets are unusually cheap right now.  8 rows up in the upper level but center ice going for $80.  Every time I’ve looked before they’ve been $150-$200.  🤔

    Some of the worst cheesesteaks are ones I have had in Philly. How do you go cheese whiz over just a nice melted provolone?  

    Provolone will do, but the best cheesesteaks I’ve ever eaten have had Cooper sharp american.  It’s got the creamy sweetness of American, but also aged for a bit of sharpness.  Very nice 👍 


    That said, the whiz is not terrible with quality chopped ribeye, a solid roll, and some sautéed onions, IMO.

    That's the old Grist Mil, right? Grist Mill used to be a must visit for playoff hockey and Goombay Smashes after a day of spring skiing. Haven't been there since they changed to the Foundry.

    I’m not sure.  We’ve been here for 10 years and it’s always been called The Foundry.  It is a big, two floor brown building with a pond in front and a big water mill.  They’ve changed ownership twice, but the quality has maintained.  Expensive because of where it’s located but pretty good food.  Restaurants up on the mountain usually change ownership/names every few years.  😂

  4. My wife and I rarely go out to eat, but when we do we usually go to the same restaurant.  Our favorite place called The Foundry up near Killington.  My go-to is the chicken marsala and a double order of the duck fat fried french fries (which are amazing).  

    It’s just so delicious and I know I’m going to have a good meal.  Every time I try something different I’m always disappointed.  I’m a creature of habit I suppose.

    Watched "JFK, One Day in America" last night on Disney+  Three 45 minute segments, a lot of commentary by Clint Hill, Jackie's Secret Service lead.  Good stuff, with some footage I've never seen before.

    Just finished bingeing this.  It was incredible and had me a bit misty a few times.  Also cool to see footage I’ve never seen before like the Oswald press conference.  I do like how they kept it classy and avoided all the conspiracy stuff.  Imagine if it hadn’t stopped raining in Dallas on that day.  🤔

    How do you win?  Scratch that.  I don't want to know.  Are you calling me on a cellular phone?  I don't know you.  Who is this?  Don't come here.  I'm hanging up the phone.  Prank caller!  Prank caller!



    Sounds like you need a stool softener and a glass of warm milk.

  7. Here is my cash game/multiplier/double-up DraftKings lineup for UFC 295 tomorrow night.


    Sergei Pavlovich 8000

    Mackenzie Dern 9000

    Kyung-ho Kang 7400

    Jiri Prochazka 7800

    Steve Erceg 8600

    Joshua Van 9200


    Feel free to tail this if you like, but again, this should be used for cash games and not tournaments.


    **Edit: Made a few tweaks after weigh ins today.

    Just watched the Bill Burr movie on Netflix, Old Dads.  It was alright.  Had some funny moments but not as good of a movie as I was expecting 

    I agree.  There were some funny moments, and it started well, but most of the movie just seemed drawn out and “forced.”  After a while, I found the woke hyperbole to be quite irritating.

    Was wondering what happened! Is there a timeline on when he may return if at all? I wonder what made him so mad

    SU said should return soon

    Again, just info from a trusted source.  I have no idea as to the duration of his suspension. 

  10. Anyone else hear the rumor about the alleged “dust up” between Benny and Red Autry in practice last week that led to his suspension?  I heard Benny got in his face screaming and it got ugly.  Autry threw him out of practice.

    How do you bet ufc just on the result or how and when the result happens?

    It’s DraftKings DFS.  Gambling isn’t legal in my state.  You pick a roster of 6 fighters and your maximum “payroll” is 50K.  You have to pick a few “live” underdogs to win.  I’ve been doing very well, but I’m a big UFC fan and do a lot of research as well.  It annoys the ***** out of my wife.  😂 

    I’ll start posting my optimal cash game line-up every week just in case anyone wants to tail.  I think I did that once before.

  12. Dispensaries are like gas stations here in Vermont.  There are 6 within a 20 minute drive of my house and a new one that is about to open.  I think it’s legal to grow up to 6 plants.  I have a guy that will deliver whatever I want directly to my front door.  Pretty sweet.

  13. I do not ski or snowboard, however, I live about 10 minutes away from Pico and Killington Mountains.  My daughter is on the Pico ski race team, and my wife/daughter/son all have season passes to Pico.  They go to Killington 4-5 times a season, and sometimes venture out to Sugarbush, Stratton and Okemo.  I get lots of peace and quiet on the weekends during the winter time which is fine by me!  😉
