    I always laughed at the bars in Japan selling Budweiser as an "import" at a higher cost, when there were so many other choices that were "better" (IMHO). The marketing as "The King of Beers" is believed by many, but I am not one of them.

    To be clear, I got nuthin' against rice, especially in a Sapporo Black which I'll take over a Bud any day.

    Try a beer with coffee in it. I was turned on to that recently. I find it very yummy.

    My default beer when I sit down for a nice dinner (if I'm not drinking wine that is) is an IPA. Our local brewery in Worcester, MA has a really nice one.

    All that said, since this thread is about the Super Bowl.... Frono will appreciate this (this is partially your doing, buddy!).... For the game, I drank almost an entire bottle of Aberlour (single malt scotch). Oh my, yesterday was a bit fuzzy.

    :)

    Well done. I suppose you took a sip every time a play ended and one side had zero points? ;-)

    Football? My neighborhood was dead quiet on Sunday. No cookouts, family get togethers, etc.. I have noticed a general decline in interest in American Football over the years, at least in my neck of the woods.

    The younger generations seem to more and more interested in Soccer. I guess it is a more internationally understood game.

    Me, I'll just stick to Baseball.
