Happy New Year
Given this is the last moment of 2014, so I should probably post something about it.
I had attempted to make this tasty-adult-beverage before, and to put a lesser word, disgusted it.
There, I said it.
It is hard to watch any NFL game these days when the headlines behind a very well crafted game is Ray Peterson Spanking Domestic Violence with Roger Goodell looking on.
I was amused by this tweet last week:
Are we now not allowed to say a team "spanked" another team thanks to Adrian Peterson? Eagles made Colts have a "time out in the corner".

I have talked with several of my co-working
Dallas Cowboys NFL fans and we have come to the same conclusion. The NFL isn’t fun this year.
You may remember, several years ago, I was tasked with producing a punch for The Nameless
County Employee’s birthday/Faux-Prom night.
Anyways, the Usual Suspects approached me again for another Punch undertaking for “Nascar”‘s Birthday.
It was a pool party, so I knew I wanted something more than just Rum and Fruit Juice (though there is nothing wrong with that). So I want the wine/champagne route.
Back in the far away decade that was the 1990s, The-Editors-of-Jeremy-Gilby-dot-com sat in what was a high school Political Science class.
Granted, most High School Level PolySci classes are very template/current-event-based, but this was a fun exercise for the young Editors-of-Jeremy-Gilby-dot-com; as every week the teacher, Mr. Sabatino (a.k.a. the father of the drummer of “The Dead Milkmen”) [Yeah, I knew his mother too!] presented a worldview question and divided the classroom into groups for a half-hour debate.
Now, I was a hard-core-young-Republican at the time. And my Senior Year High School peers were not so politically minded at the time. So I enjoyed the task of taking the minority position in many of these weekly debates. I often found myself arguing things that I did not personally believe with, but the exercise was interesting and it influenced many of my debate skills.
Anyways, one week the question was presented: If you were instituting a new government for a savage people what would you choose?
On February 2, 2007, Jeremy-Gilby-dot-com entered infamy when we opined, initially, on the subject on the news that Brett Favre was NOT going to retire from the Green Bay Packers.
Our thesis, by NOT retiring, Favre was not allowing an unknown backup Quarterback to take the helm of the team. Aaron Rodgers would be holding a clipboard for another year so that Favre could chase more records.
At the end of that season, we had to eat our words as Favre carried the Pack to the Playoffs, losing in the championship game to the New [Jersey] Giants.
But finally, Favre retired.
(Or did he?)
