Welcome to the 13th installment of Love it ? or Hate it ?..as usual we take a subject and tell you whether we love it or hate it..feel free to throw in your 2-cents. Humor us..tell us which subjects you love and which ones you hate.

----------------------

The panel this week consists of Harry Callahan, i B4 e, It's All Mine!, and Curly Lambeau.

Our special guest this week is rstowe.

------------------------

The words of the day are < Cue laughter >

------------------------

We have a new addition at the end of the blog called Jyoti's corner..be sure to check it out.

---------------------------

The first subject is Bob Costas.

 

------------------------------------

 

i B4 e: Love him.


He is one of my favorite announcers. I love watching him. He does his research and actually sounds like he knows what he's talking about. Unlike a certain, soon to be addressed, announcer's brother.

------------------

It's All Mine!: Love him.

 

He seems to do his homework, and comes across as knowledgeable. Which is the result of doing homework. So, do your homework, kids!

Did I digress here? Wait...Homework: Love it!

----------------------------

rstowe: Hate him.

He is great in a studio show, but in the booth he sucks....he thinks he knows more than he actually does. I would rather have Joe Morgan or Joe Theismann call a game than him.

-----------------------

Curly Lambeau: Love him.

  



...no special reason why. He just seems to know his stuff, and does good work in the booth and in the studio.

------------------------

Harry: Hate him.

He used to drive me crazy making off the wall weekly picks on "Inside the N.F.L." for no apparent reason or explaination other than to catch up from being in last place out of the pickers and trying to pick up ground.

He doesn't seem to be listening to who he's talking to..he seems to be waiting for his turn to talk..which he sometimes butts in and does anyway.

---------------------------------

The second subject is Corona beer.

-----------------------------

Harry: Hate it.

When you open one of these..the immediate stench of urine is evident. It smells like the mens latrines at a sporting event. I guess thats why they put lime in it..to drown out the pee odor.

------------------

It's All Mine!: Love it.

 

I drank six or so yesterday, floating down the Yellowstone river on a big ol' raft. And the amazing thing was that when I emptied one, there was another in the cooler. And so it went, Corona after Corona.

But I must ask: Harry, when did you have your head in a latrine at a sporting event? Were you looking for a date? Or did you lose Jyoti? Does she hang out in latrines at sporting events?

---------------

Harry:

No..No..No..i meant the general stench of a mens room at a sporting event..you can smell it up in the stands or it's somebody sitting next to me with a Corona. And leave little Jyoti out of this.

There is also an urban legend about the Corona plant workers in Mexico whizzing in the vats of beer that are being exported out of Mexico to the U.S. so they can give the middle finger salute to the gringos over here. HA ! HA ! HA !

--------------------

i B4 e: Love it. 

I love Corona. It's one of the few imports I drink. I like it even better than Guiness. (Don't tell Josh I said that)

------------------

Curly Lambeau: Hate it.

 

Another in a long line of skunky beers. We talked about Heineken a while ago. Everything I said there applies here. You know there's something wrong when you need a lime to kill the taste and smell of your beer. ...that's logic!

-----------------------

rstowe: Love it.


I love it especially with a lime but only if you are eating Mexican food or on a beach somewhere. If you are eating anything else or not on a beach, there are much better beers to be drunk.

-----------------------

The third subject is Bryant Gumble of H.B.O.s " Real sports with Bryant Gumble".

---------------------------------

Curly Lambeau: Love him.

 

He's not his brother. That's enough for me!

--------------------

i B4 e: Love him.

 

I don't really know how to explain my love for him. I just like the guy. No matter your feelings for him he is 100000000000000% better than his brother.

------------------

Harry: Hate him.

Never even saw this show and by the looks of the picture up there..the only ones up there i would even listen to is James Brown and Frank Deford.

I have disliked this guy since the Today show..but they keep hiring him for different gigs..so he must have some fans. His play by play calling in the Superbowl was idiotic at best ..Chris Collinsworth probably could not believe what he was witnessing.

He is such a downer.

--------------------------

rstowe: Hate him.


Just another Gumble blowhard who thinks he knows more than he really does. Just how many Gumbles does the sporting world need?

---------------------------

It's All Mine!: Hate him.

 

Nothing personal, but he is no more qualified to talk sports than I am. His brother is suited to it, but that doesn't give Bryant an automatic seat at a sports desk. But still, I'd just like to say, "Thanks for the Gumble, Mickey!"

(If anyone knows what that is from, just say so in the comments.)

----------------

The fourth subject is shuffleboard.

-------------------------------------

i B4 e: Hate it.

 

It all goes back to a shuffle board accident I had when I was just a wee puppy. I don't like to talk about it. Thanks for bringing up such a painful memory. Someone get me a tissue.

---------------------------

It's All Mine!: Love it.

 

I haven't played in a long time, but you can bet that if we had one in town here, I'd play it. If there was no darts. Or no foosball. Billiards, too. But I would play it if I knew what it was. I love it.

---------------------------

rstowe: Love it.

Anything to pass the time while drinking that is a contest and can be used to improve bragging rights of one guy over another can't be bad at all.

---------------------------------

Harry: Love it.

This is a bar game that is a total blast..we usually set up by it when we get to the place.I think out of darts, pool and this..i would choose this to play first.

There is usually a big wait to play it as the night progresses..and as per the norm..you seem to slide the discs off the end more frequently as the beer tally clicks away.

-------------------

Curly Lambeau: Love it.

 

Can I love it if I've never played it? Answer: I can and I will! They had a shuffleboard thingie at the bowling alley we used to go to when I was a kid, and, although I never played it, I always looked at it with curiosity and awe, like "ooo, that thing is huge! I wonder what it's for." I'd love to play someday, but until then I'll love it from afar.

-------------------------

 

The fifth subject is Hank Williams Jr.

---------------------------------

rstowe: Love him.

I Grew up listening to him thanks to my parents. One of the founding fathers of Southern Rock along with Skynyrd, Charlie Daniels, Allman Brothers. Plus, can't go wrong with the Monday Night Football opening theme.

---------------------

 

i B4 e: Love him.

Dude, how can someone not love Bocephus? I can sing right along to all of his songs. Plus, the man fell off a mountain and lived to sing about it. How can you not love that? My mom and stepdad went to see him sing at a small venue years ago. He was so plastered he needed stagehands to keep him propped up on his stool. And he still rocked the house.

---------------------------

Harry: Love him.

I like some of his old stuff, but hey.. the " All my rowdy friends" remake for Monday night football  is an instant classic. It was my alarm clock to let me know that the game was about to start.. the guy can jam it out.

---------------------------

It's All Mine!: Love him.

 

Bocephus! The man is a legend! As Harry pointed out, his Monday Night Football opening is exactly perfect. Have you noticed how Sunday Night Football tried last season to get a rockin' opening song? I forget who that chick was, but it was a pathetic attempt to match Junior's mastery. His friendship and tutelage with Kid Rock is admirable. Kid Rock had to learn how party from the man!

That's right--I used the word tutelage.

------------------------

Curly Lambeau: Love him.

 

It's like IAM pointed out, when Football Night In America tried Pink and that other chic (was it Faith Hill?), it made a guy appreciate Hank and his rowdy friends. Those other opening songs were just painful! Like Harry said, Hank was the alarm clock to let you know that the game's about to start and it's gonna' totally freaking ROCK. The other songs, on the other hand, were the alarm clock letting you know that it was time to push the mute button.

----------------------

And the sixth and final subject is the Wendy's burger.

-------------------------------------------

It's All Mine!: Love it.

 

When I graduated high school, and left the farm work behind for the bright lights of Seattle, the first job I held was at a Wendy's. Their burgers are made when you order them, and the ingredients are fresh. They purchase their burger locally and form them at the restaurant, and it is never frozen. And as far as I know, they don't actually used ground worms as a filler. As far as I know.

-------------------------------------

Curly Lambeau: Hate it.

 

Honestly, I actually hate all fast-food burgers. I say: it's not "fast food," it's styrofoam-encased putrescence.

------------------------

Harry: Love it.

If i had to choose between one of these or a Big Mac or a Whopper i would take this..extra pickles baby.

----------------------------------

rstowe: Love it.


One of the best fast food chain burgers around. Fresh, never frozen, fresh ingredients, never sits under a heat lamp - closest in taste to what you grill at home.

-----------------------------------

i B4 e: Love it.

 

How can you hate a burger joint that doesn't cut corners. Granted I don't love them as much as I used to because the size of the food on their dollar menu is getting smaller, but they still make great burgers. Plus Dave Thomas was a helluva man.

--------------------------

JYOTI'S CORNER--- 

This is a new addition called Jyoti's corner..this young lady is way cool..and is an official Pier-11 buddy of ours.

We will ask her a couple questions each week so you can get to know her a little better...she is the one with the backpack front and center.

We advise you to not let her size fool you.. she is a 5th degree black belt in Hapkido and can probably kick the crap out of you in a moments notice...so be nice to her.

-----------------------

Harry: Good morning Jyoti..let's get the folks up to speed on who you are.

Why don't you tell them your full name..your age and where you live for starters.

----------------

Jyoti: Good morning to you too Harry. My full name is Jyoti Amge and i am 14 years old. I am from Nagpur, India.

----------------

Harry: Height and weight ?

----------------------

Jyoti: I am 1 foot 11 inches tall and weigh 11 lbs...i am the smallest girl in the world.

-----------------

Harry: Hey thanks Jyoti..we will have you on again next wednesday for another chat...don't want to tell the folks everything about you on the first blog.

Take it easy..and we will see you next week.

---------------

Jyoti: Okay..next week it is then..take it easy Pier brothers.

----------------------------

 

Well that's it folks..we hope you liked it..if not..as always..we could give a crap.

            

 

                                     This has been a Pier-11 production.
