Do you consume "energy" drinks?

81 posts in this topic

If so, what do you prefer? And how much/how often do you consume?

I drink coffee once or twice per week.

I think I just had my first redbull since college.

when i gotta pull an all nighter... other than that it's coffee... 2-3 cups a day.

if drinking energy drinks... i usually just buy what's cheap... they all taste like garbage.

coffee>water>beer for the three phases of my day.

I'm coffee, water and beer until recently when a biometric screening revealed that I have low LDL. So now I have added a glass of red wine to my evening along with some other things to try and increase that. So no to the energy drinks. Just strong, black coffee for me up until a little before lunch time every day. Then water till dinner. Beer and wine once the baby is in bed.

Never had a Redbull or any such drink... never tried a "5 hour energy" either...

I do however drink a large coffee in the morning and usually take a pre-workout, almost all of which have caffeine, prior to my afternoon workout.

...and it's interesting to note that caffeine is one of those rule breaker ie/ei words. Weird. Hey, weird is too...

The smell of Redbull males me nauseous.

I'll drink a cup or two of coffee per day.

I drink sugar-free RedBull, usually 2x 12oz a day. I got on the sugar-free after that was all the Bossman had at his condo & I knew we werent going to stop on the way to the convention. Never felt the crash of a regular until I didnt feel it from a sugar-free, havent looked back since. I will go through about 5 on poker Saturdays, 2 at work & 3 during the game...

Although, just last week I didnt have any for 3 days. I felt great. I will open the first of the day just because, after that I feel like I need it. But after last week's revelation I am seriously reconsidering continued consumption...

Daily I drink 2 Monsters (The new white can), 1 cup off coffee, and a mid day Xtra strength 5 hour energy after lunch. There is an office pool on which date my heart is going to explode.

On my desk now:

JR I figured you'd have an IV drip set up.

I went through a phase where I drank Monster a lot. I think red bull tastes a little better but it also costs more so I never really drank it. Lately I've been using powder caffeine, which is cheaper and works really well. http://www.amazon.com/Caffeine-Anhydrous-Alertness-NuSci-HerbStoreUSA/dp/B0045RYE0Q/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1359400521&sr=8-1&keywords=caffeine+powder

I dont really drink caffeine much anyways, I'm trying to avoid using it to wake up every morning until I'm older.

    •     Now don't take this the wrong way, but....are you two nuts? Now, if the kid didn't have those injury issues, maybe I can get on board. But man, those petite WRs with injury issues in college? Those guys scare the living poo outta me.   Now get me a Ross clone and I'm on board. Someone for the slot that could actually, you know, scare a Defense. Now that would tickle my giddy like nobodies bidness.
    • IMO, it is obvious, to me anyhow, that the kid has matured. He has taken heat for standing up for what he believes, and has done it the right way. No snarky comments to the press. Keeping his head down, and working toward a goal. He has brought to light injustices not only in our country, but in others as well. His foundation just contributed over a million and a half dollars to the Simolian relief effort.   All that is admirable to be sure. And he can play football as well, or better, than enough QBs to earn himself a shot at a job.   It is not the football side of his life that is keeping him off teams. Almost every team hates distractions. It is just how it is. And Kaep is a walking distraction at this point in time.   I would like to add that another thought could be that at this point in FA, no one is being signed. OK, maybe a better way to put that is, FA spending has slowed considerably.   If teams head to Training Camp and he is still unemployed. Then I may start believing in conspiracies.
    • lol lol lol fahey watched every snap of every game and graded the quarterbacks as he saw it. kaepernick is a fine game manager who was let down repeatedly by perhaps the shittiest set of skill position players in the league and oh yeah he can run like the wind. you've got to be pretty stupid to think this is anything but a quarterback starved league blackballing a serviceable quarterback all because he had the audamndacity to protest racism in america and tbh i've not seen one post itt that would cause me to even begin to question that.
