Several Almost Empties: Sazerac 18, Elmer T Lee

OK.  This has been sitting in draft for over a week.  More almost empties to come.

Sazerac 18: This is the 2009 bottling, which is considered inferior to the 2010.  The 2010 must be something because this is quite nice.  It has a nice strong grain flavor, with a bit of vanilla sweetness, both in your initial sip and the finish.  A+.

Elmer T Lee: This bourbon comes highly recommended.  Frankly, I don't see what's the big deal.  It's smooth, which is damning with faint praise.  At least it's cheap.  C

Wry World Of Sports: Jim Tressel Claims Another Victim

The Bowl Championship Series announced today that they have stripped USC of their 2004 National Championship.  This sanction was handed down after it was discovered by Sports Illustrated's ace reporter, George "Old News" Dohrman, that Ohio State coach Jim Tressel knew that USC runningback Reggie Bush's parents were given a luxury home by a sports agent.

"Not only did Tressel turn a blind eye to the misdeeds of his own players, he also turned a blind eye to the misdeeds of other teams.  He spread his doctrine of "La, la, la, I can't hear you." around the nation.  Wait until you hear what he knew about Cam Newton, OJ Mayo, Craig James, and Shoeless Joe Jackson.  It's just a shame that he had to drag down a man of high moral character, like Pete Carroll, down with him."

Two Parts Rye's official summer beer of 2011: Wittekerke

It's hot, it's humid, you  just got done playing softball, or mowing the lawn, and your balls are sticking to your leg.  (If they are sticking to both, seek help from a medical professional.)  You need a nice lite, summer pounder.  This is it.  It's a thinner blue moon and I love it.  It's from Belgium, and I still love it!.  I've done my research and the name has something to do with Captain Kirk.
