  1. Capacity, marketing and distribution are the limiting factors. ___ I think this is all about to change. Some interesting companies out there in this regard. SOMD Brewing is one, to be sure.
  2. Evolution is one I haven't tried yet. Keep seeing it at the local store though. Have to pick up a 6-er. Heavy Seas is a tad, well, heavy for me. Perhaps I just didn't find my style yet from the sampler I bought. Although, all my friends love their stuff. Saw their "AAAARGHtoberfest" the other day and got a laugh. If I go high octane, I enjoy Flying Dog. Their Snake Dog IPA is a good one. Also love the Pearl Necklace oyster stout...GREAT if you like stouts. Not as "oystery" as you'd think...
  3. Saw the article about microbreweries in MD. Glad to see a couple more are slated for Howard Co. Lots of good options regionally with Flying Dog, Dogfish Head, Brewars Art, SOMD Brewing, DuClaw etc. I wonder if this opens the door for Cecil, Harford and Carroll Co.? What are your favorite Micro beers out there?
  4. Why is no attention being paid to the passenger in Dwyer's boat? He is a former LEO, and should have known better. Cops are supposed to be more adept at noticing crucial details. Perhaps he could shed some more light on what happened. AND what were just two guys doing taking a trip to the eastern shore together?
  5. What a terrible, boring movie!
  6. 14 straight, he's done, as well as 11, 12 and 13: But 15 is totally impossible.
  7. Or, more likely, people decided not to waste their time.
  8. That made me laugh. Good show, my man, good show!
  9. The problem is, the Sun doesn't offer content that's unique AND/OR worthwhile. It doesn't have a hook or an edge. It's mostly really general AP stuff, regurgitated. And the stuff they do offer that's borderline unique, is done better at other places: The Patches have better (and at least much more timely) local coverage these days and when it comes to the Ravens, the Carrol County Times and Aaron Wilson do it better. Oh, and the Sun's former best Ravens reporter now works covering the AFCN for ESPN... If the Sun wants to tighten up and survive, it needs to push it's good columnists like Van Valkenberg to the front, and focus reporting solely on interesting and unique local content. The Maryland section and the Sports section could save the sun, if done right. But that's a big if. They need to have reporters that actually know their beat and are at city hall, on the streets, and at the Ravens facility and at the local colleges and high schools covering the games, all the time, churning it out, looking for unique, LOCAL news stories. But the 3 feature stories per edition, a few tv lisitings, topped off with a a ton of AP stuff isn't going to cut it. People aren't going to pay for bland, general, AP content they can get free elsewhere.
  10. I know, but you can't make adjustments when you're down yto your last CBs on the roster.
  11. Yeah, I don't think that wasn't a DC or scheme problem. That was Flacco and Smith pickin' on a guy. Flacco looked off Boldin on the second or third TD, who was WIDE open, and threw it to Torrey just because he knew that CB was having a bad day.
  12. Wow. Things must be bad for BS. This and on Saturday they sold out the whole front page and put the lead news on A3.
  13. Flacco certainly looked the best of all the young QBs yesterday. Curtis Painter was abysmal until his 4th Q drive. Bradford was in a daze when the blitzes started coming. Matt Ryan was a fumble machine. Josh Freeman threw more completions to the other team than his own.
  14. I was like, 'HEY, LLAMA, how about a little something for the effort?!'...So I got that going for me. Which is nice."
  15. And those that can't, teach...
