The Kraken Rum

This product was received for review just in time, as the bottle that I had purchased for myself was almost empty.  That bottle was pretty much drained during last years Super Bowl by the $6 Million Dollar Man.  (Been a long time since I referenced my friends.)  This was an impressive feat, considering that he was having a kidney stone attack during the game.  For the uninitiated, The $6MMm man is a a walking, talking pile of replacement parts.  His left kidney has been replaced by a catalytic converter froma 1984 Chevy Monte Carlo.  His right kidney consists of a cheese cloth wrapped around a coffee press.  I'm guessing that it was a pretty big stone.

The Kraken is a spiced rum.  The natural thing to do is to compare it to the captain.  It's not as sweet, but it is spicier and more tannic.  Lets face it.  The captain is the Carson Palmer of rum; coasting on an unearned reputation, and at this point, we're not sure what team he's playing for.

Kraken & Cola.

The Power Rye 2010-11 Final Rankings

Yeah, yeah, yeah.  It's been a while.  But the Baby Rye is on the move, which means I spend most of my free time playing goalie.

We'll count it down for the final poll.

10. The little sisters of the poor.  Who are much better than TCU.

9. Arkansas. (10-3) Nanna-nanna-boo-boo.  We beat you.  PS.  Scoop and score dipshit.
8. Oklahoma. (12-2) Defeated UConn 48-20.  Before you start feeling proud of yourself, please keep in mind that Michigan beat UConn by 20.
7. Alabama.  (10-3)  Defeated Michigan St. 49-7.  I was expecting an ass-whooping, but damn!
6. LSU (11-2) Defeated Texas A&M 41-24.  Les Miles is my favorite crazy coach. 
5. Wisconsin (11-2)  Just hand the ball off on every play and you win.  Bielema = Dumbass!
4. Stanford (12-1)   Looking forward to being irrelevant again.
3. Ohio State (12-1) Defeated Arkansas 31-26.  We are tattooing the victory in the record books, so that it cannot be removed in the future.
2. Oregon (12-1) Lost the national title game.  That's about it.
1. Auburn (14-0) Defeated Oregon 22-19.  They needed a fluke non-tackle and $200k, but dag gummit, they're the champs.  As champions, I ask that a representative of the university contact me to collect your trophy.  It's a customized bottle of Old Overholt, with your battle cry "Roll Tide" on the label.  I promise that I won't revoke it when you have to give back that crystal football in a year or two.
