  2. Better question. Why does Taylor Ham / pork roll / unspecified meat stick even exist? Get bacon. Get ham. But meat stick? Kinda gross if you ask me. And putting ketchup on eggs is like spreading mayonnaise on a birthday cake covered in spiders. Skin crawling yuck that's relatively senseless. And yes, I'm aware migas and salsa on a breakfast taco is a thing in my current home of Austin. But it's still icky. But to be fair, I'm also the weirdo who doesn't put milk in cereal, so my culinary preferences can be suspect.

  5. Back to Big Mike, I don't love him. I'm intrigued by him. Listening to him is like watching a dinosaur roam the streets of Manhattan: he doesn't belong in this modern world, but somehow, someway, he persists and to me, it's absolutely fascinating. It's also incredibly cringey, which I admittedly gravitate towards. He's a cantankerous old man who has zero self-awareness and ability to laugh at himself. The fact he takes himself so seriously is amazing, especially when people call him up just to mess with him. You have to give him credit for not dumping out whenever he gets a prank. He rea
  6. Coming out of the ether to comment on this, but it all comes down to the "The Plan". We as fans want to to win now, but what if Shero and Co's plan is to build a winning franchise? Based on that mindset, they may want to pass unless they find a dancing partner and do an immediate sign and trade. Here's what I'm thinking: Lets say we sign Kovy, and he has 40 points heading to the deadline. He's made the team better, we climb up the standings a bit and go from basement dwellers to an "in the mix" team. Kinda sorta in the race come March, but fall short of the playoffs. Middle of the pack.
  7. These conversations are brutal because there are two sides to the argument, both valid. On the one hand, if the team does their best to win every night and falls 4 points out of a playoff spot, then you pick 15th-ish. Mediocre picks lead to mediocre talent which creates a team languishing in mediocrity. An emotional flat line where a team either misses the playoffs or is an easy first round exit every year. If you tank, you have a higher chance of snagging that franchise saving player. But, in the end, I'm anti-tank. In my opinion, it creates a culture of losing and a sense of uncertainty
  8. Another ATX'er! While this post won't matter to 98% of the board, Mean Eyed Cat on West 5th has Center Ice (or whatever they call the package now) and if the owner is there, he's really good about putting hockey on. The owner is a hockey fan, and has no problem putting on what you want, especially on a slow Tuesday night.
  9. Haven't been this cautiously excited for a Devils season in quite some time, so much so, I'm firing up the old njdevs account. Tough matchup against a good opponent, but I'm feeling good about it! LGD!
  10. DevsMan, I suppose we'll have to agree to disagree on the variety issue. In your Baskin Robbins example, you're right in that they chose 31 flavors, but to arrive at those flavors, they needed the room and the marketplace to discover what works. In the beer world, that testing ground requires a community of people willing to try out new things and pay for it. I rarely go "whale hunting", but if my bottle shop has a $20 bomber of something new, I'll pull the trigger. I'd hate to see that go away. I think what we're really talking about is saturation, not variety. On that, I 100% agree. We
  11. I know I rarely post here anymore, but I have to get into this conversation. Like anything, the culture will drive the demand which drives the industry. I can't speak for the East Coast, but here in Texas, craft beer is exploding and the beer drinking community is large enough to support it (for now). The greater Austin area alone has over 30 breweries with more popping up monthly. They're not all going to survive, and that's fine, but they all get a fair shake from the community. And if they are average brews people try and discard, then that brewery goes under. Sunrise, sunset, capitali
  12. This is pretty much the right and most simple answer. With Gamecenter, if you live in Jersey or New York, you will never get a Devils game because it's always available on some cable network (MSG, MSG+, NBC Sports, NBC). Cable gets first dibs. I believe Center Ice works the same way, but since that's a cable platform, it's really only useful for watching out or market games. Same with Gamecenter. I live in Austin, TX, so Gamecenter works great for me. I get every Devils game except for Devils / Stars and if they're ever on NBC or NBC Sports. Just an FYI, Gamecenter stinks during the playof
  13. You nailed it. That is a big part of it. I grew up with the FAN, so it's a nice reminder of "days gone by", Keeps me connected to the tri-state area.
  14. Call me crazy, but I'm a Francesa fan for all the reasons he wouldn't want me to be. His show is a wonderful train wreck. His rants, the pranking, Mongo nation. I live 1500 miles away and I still listen online. Love him or hate him. he illicts reactions. As for the interview, what would anybody expect? It's a New York station and he's New York fan, so of course, 60% of the questions are going to be about the "Ran-jhas". We hate it, but '95 will forever be linked to '94. It was the final act of a three part play. At least he acknowledged our long standing success. Oh wait. In the shadow of th
  15. Has anyone seen the actual film? It's opening here in Austin next week (I think) and I know it's playing in limited release in NYC right now, That'll be a first week watch for me, for sure.
