"There’s a thriving Michigan beer culture, and none of it here. Why, Ruby Tuesday’s? Why?"
Because it's Ruby freakin' Tuesday's! There's a thriving just-about-everything culture in NYC, too, but you won't find it at the Ruby Tuesday's in Times Square, or the TGIF's a couple blocks east. I'm not a snob -- chain restaurants have their place (other than Appleby's, of course). But you don't go to a chain restaurant expecting to sample local craft products.
Not surprising since it's Peter freakin' King! This is the guy who bragged about his "discovery" of Blue Moon like 10 years after it had been available nationwide. And, my personal favorite, he also once said one microbrew was a copy of another because he saw by the label that some of the ingredients were the same. (Holy crap...this one has hops in it too?!)
Give PK credit for knowing about Bell's.
"But McKnight, who worked on this story for 22 months, raised another point that’s more significant to today’s NFL, and that’s the recreational use of marijuana."
I'm clutching my pearls as you speak.
Did he really brag on sitting next to a famous physicist and putting him to sleep as soon as they started talking?
At least the man only went to sleep. I was picturing the scene from Airplane where the guy douses himself in gasoline.
King really is terrible isn't he? I just read his take on the last play. He's just factually wrong and doesn't seem to care.
1) Interception was five yards in the endzone. Possibly as deep as four, closer to three.
2) would have landed within a yard, or foot, of Gronk. I guess if gravity had reversed itself that's possible. The ball's trajectory would have landed as close to four yards from where Gronk was, assuming he stopped on a dime.
The plain fact is that Gronk would never have been able to catch that ball. If that is not the definition of uncatchable, than what is?
What I took away from this article:
"I saw luxurious nuts at the O'hare airport."
For quarterbacks, the feet are the window to the mind.
