So I was pulled and forced to go to a Moose Lodge with family last night for drinks with the wife's family, and had to choose between Bud, Bud Light, Coors, Coors Light, or PBR. Now I made the decision years ago that when faced with American Piss Lager I'd choose PBR and so I say there and drank 8 PBR cans while the other members of the family have me a hard time for drinking PBR over Coors Light (which I guess is the best of all American beers). Then the "men" separated from the ladies to watch Hockey (I might be the only person in Michigan that knows nothing about Hockey (my knowledge is limited to what I learned playing NHL 93/94 on a Super Nintendo)) but then people starting talking about baseball and since they knew I know something about that so the discussion went to the Tigers off season moves and everyone was worried Miggy wouldn't have any "lineup protection" without Prince and the team would be missing his RBI... I but my tongue, trying to be a good family member. Then they starting talking about batting average and the triple crown, I chimed in saying AVG is a bad way to measure a hitter and that OBP & SLG is a better way (which they still didn't believe) then I made the mistake of talking about wOBA which resulted with this comment, "we're not talking about basketball" and when I mentioned WAR "we're not talking politics."
Yeah I missed BN yesterday, and my gut misses Founders.
