Until Next Year......

Photo Quiz: What is this photo of?

A. The men's room
B. Swamps of Jersey
C. A sight I'll not see for the next seven months

10 pounds of stew beef: $32.50
1 bottle of two-buck Chuck Cabernet: $3.00
Carrots, potatoes, baby corn: $3.00
15 of my closest tailgate friends standing and eating a steaming hot
bowlful of beef stew on a freezing cold day before the last game
of the season: Priceless

Captions anyone?  

Although we ended the season with a win, we left somewhat
disappointed knowing there would be no chance for a playoff
run.  Now begins the winter of my discontent.  I know it's only
a game, but it's a game that makes us happy and I'm stickin
with that.  I'll sign off this year with the hopes that the NY Giants
will represent the National Football Conference in the 2014 
Super Bowl, in this very stadium!  Now wouldn't that be nice?

Happy New Year to all of my blogging friends, authors and readers
alike, who continue to check in to this humble site whether or not
there is anything half worthwhile reading.  Be safe tonight
and see you next year!


  1. Photo Quiz answer: D) All three

    Captions Contest: Messrs. Yuengling and Weber say "bottoms up" to the 2012 season

    Happy New Year Cuz! Love you man!

  2. It's way past quiz time over here!!! - Happy new year to you and yours

  3. Go Metlife. What a Superb Owl that would be.

  4. Mojo beat me to it - all of the above.
    That beef stew looks amazing!

    Happy New Year!

  5. Caption: Take me to your leader! We come in peace - all we want is your beer!

  6. Wait a second, 2 Buck Chuck is $3 in Jersey! Geez, Louise. If our taxes were that high I think I'd hang out under the grill until the Spring thaw too. Mind you, I'd want a bottle of bourbon instead of beer. A guy's got to have his anti-freeze.

    Happy New Year!

    1. I was wondering when someone was going to catch that!
