Leads are for Closers

You might have noticed it's been a little quiet on this front for the past day or two. If you have, you read this blog everyday and I love you more than Cathy loves the word "Ack," more than Garfield loves kicking Odie off a table, and more than David Mamet loves casting the venerable Joe Mantegna. Well, the reason I haven't been here is that I have been sick, which, unfortunately came right after an intentional day off. On Monday, as I wrote, I took a day off because I had a 24 beer lead and felt I could use a day break. Well on Tuesday, this head-cold sort of hit me like a ton of bricks in the afternoon. I felt a little better at night, so I had a Speakeasy Prohibition Ale with my dinner and went to bed.

On Wednesday, the head cold was back with full force. Did that stop me? I mean sort of. Liz and I went to get sandwiches for dinner at Bierkraft and I had a Two Brothers Monach White Ale. Before you get in a tizzy about drinking with a head cold, I will say that the Monarch was a light, Belgian white ale, clocking in at about 4.5%. Also, true story, beer is more hydrating than soda, and I'm guessing if I said I had a soda with dinner, no one would think twice. So that brings me up to today (Thursday). I'm on the rebound here, but I probably won't drink at all tonight. This weekend is supposed to be gorgeous, and I want to be in full health for that. Also, this is my last weekend before I leave for Korea for a week, so it's my last chance to make a serious run. I wanted to be a full week ahead before I did that, but things happen. And after all, this is what that lead was for.

Total Beers: 226
Where I Should Be: 210.958 (man, I'm going to have some drinking to do this weekend)

  1. I like that you chose weird examples for each...I feel most would say that Cathy loves Mondays and Garfield loves lasagna. Way to spice it up, dude.
