Tickets for the Taints game on the 22nd

03 December 2013 - 07:49 PM

Hey peeps,

 

My wife and I want to go to the Taints game on the 22nd. I'm looking at ticket prices and they are pretty high for a decent seat on the Panther's side. Is it worth it to wait and see if I can get a lucky break the day of from a scalper or should I just bite the bullet and pay +/- $500 for two tickets now?


how did you guys/gals cook your Turkey?

How did you guys/gals cook your Turkey this year?  I brined mine and will repeat. It was a 19 pounder since we had 12 adults and 3 kids. Brine consisted of:

 

11 cups water

6 garlic cloves

.25 cup allspice

2.5 cups kosher salt

2 large white onions

Tablespoon whole cloves

.25 cup olive oil

2 cups chicken broth

3 celery stalks cut in half

A double deuce of Samuel Smith Nut Brown Ale

2 cups ice

 

Add everything but beer and ice in a pot and boil. Pull off the heat and add the beer and ice.  Once cool, add the turkey to a brine bag and pour the brine in. Let it marinate for a good 24 hours.

 

I cooked the this one on the grill on indirect heat.  About 350 for 3.5 hours until it was 160 degrees and let it rest for 30.

 

Absolutely stellar turkey. Juicy and flavorful.

 

 


Hurricane Erin, September 11th, 2001

11 September 2013 - 09:34 AM

I just saw this and found it really interesting and apparently most people don't know this simply because of the other event on that same day.

 

Basically, Hurricane Erin, which was a Category 3 storm, was on track to hit New York on the morning of September 11th, 2001.  At that same time, a cold front was heading east and pushed Erin further out to sea.  Had Erin only traveled 200 +/- more miles West, which it most likely would have done if the cold front hadn't diverted it's course, all flights would have probably been cancelled that day.

Smitty Jersey

04 August 2013 - 07:22 PM

I bought a 2xl Smitty jersey at the end of the season. I normally wear a 2xl, but I forgot that the jerseys are cut pretty big, so I need a XL. I only wore this thing for 2 minutes, basically long enough for me to realize that it was too big. Hung it in my closet with the intention of returning it but never did. It still has the tags.

I'd like to recoup some money so I can go out and get a Smitty jersey that does fit.

First person to PayPal me $60 gets it. Ill ship out same day as long as its not after hours. If interested, PM me.

Getting old!

So my birthday was yesterday and I am officially one year from the big 40.  Time flies!

 

The ol' ball and chain hooked me up this year.  She got me the Newton jersey I have been wanting, plus she surprised me with pre-season tickets vs. Da Bears, 4th row, 40 yard line.  I usually sit in the nosebleeds so it'll be nice to be that close, even if it is pre-season.

 

I'm assuming since I'm that close I'll be in a good position for autographs.  Am I correct?  What would you do?  I'm thinking I'll just take a Panthers football and get as many signatures as I can.

 

Attached is a pic of my 3 year old sporting my new jersey....best pic I could get considering his cousins were over and they were all running around like maniacs!
