Friday Pick-me-up

Bad news, it’s hardly 12. Good news, it’s Friday! Only 8ish 5ish more hours until you can celebrate your short lived freedom. Whether you were crunching numbers or digging ditches, celebrate the fact that you made it through another grueling work week. At the end of the day, we’re all just doing one thing anyway…


Another Friday has come and it’s still cold as shit. Really wish Blake Griffin would’ve brought some of that California weather with him (I’m sure he’s wishing the same). Speaking of Blake Griffin, what a debut last night. Guy is an animal and I can’t wait to watch him dominate the Eastern Conference for the next few years. The Pistons have a legitimate star now and that’s neat.

In other news, it’s Super Bowl weekend. That’s awesome. I like the Pats -4.5 (sorry Chuck). Tom is the GOAT. Gronk is unstoppable (except when he’s concussed). Patricia is a genius. I can keep going…I am really more fired up for the prop bets throughout the game though. I like Pink to go over the 2 minute mark for the Anthem. Going with Blue gatorade to be dumped on the coach. Tails never fails for the coin flip. Finally, the MVP will thank his teammates first.

Now that we got that out of the way, we can get to the important stuff. Super Bowl food. I’m really a big chips and guac guy, so you can bet that I’ll be enjoying that during the game. I’ll also be snacking on a case of Michelob Ultra (kinda pissed they never reached out to me for a sponsorship deal for the big game, but whatever) and some sort of pizza. I’m thinking I’ll go with Little Caesar’s because it is both Hot and Ready. A criminally underrated snack for the Super Bowl is a veggie tray. They are hits around Thanksgiving and Christmas, but nothing beats nervously snacking on veggies and dip while you’re sweating out a first quarter over with a 3rd and 1 from the 2 yard line.

Whatever you plan on snacking on, do it responsibly. Don’t need any DUI’s because you decided to make a few too many glass sandwiches and get behind the wheel. Uber and Lyft are your friends if you don’t have any (sober) real friends to drive your drunk ass home.

We’ve got a few days to get tuned up for the big game, so put your drinking pants on and hit the town. It’s Perchville weekend on the Sunrise Side, and I’m extremely disappointed in myself for not being there this year to sneak into the line for the Polar Bear Swim, celebrate in the beer tent before getting kicked out of G’s, then drive back to Oscoda to have a few cold ones at the Office. I’ll be wandering around Royal Oak instead, trying to do my best to drink as much as I would up north. I’ll 100% have at least one White Russian, because that’s what we do during Perchville. We have White Russians and we enjoy ourselves.

Anyway, meet me at Dixie Moon Saloon so I know it’s real.


On to the music.


First up, we’ve got ourselves a little live action from Bobby S


Next, we’ve got one of the best songs to come out of the hair metal era. If you disagree, sorry, you’re wrong.


Changing it up, we’ve got some early Eric Church. Guy is great, can’t really argue that. This song is great too, can’t really argue that either.


One more from Eric Church for good measure, because why not? Nothing really says “It’s Friday and I need to get drunk” like some Eric Church.
