  1. Before this devolves into the beer thread... I've really started to get into wine lately. I'm also very much attempting to take advantage of my Californian location and try some more local wineries. This has been my favourite in the small dabbling I have done, had it over American Thanksgiving and it was very delicious. Does anyone have recommendations for Cali Cabs, or others? Washington Pinot Noirs? Any whites from around here that are tasty? I'm into the few New Zealand Sav Blancs I have had, but haven't really explored whites so much. Also, picked this up at airport duty-free and I've been eagerly waiting to crack this open... if only I wasn't sick.
  2. I'm not a huge fan of Christmas music at all. But, Vince Guaraldi's A Charlie Brown Christmas is so far and away number one. I really like John Prine and his Christmas album isn't bad. This is a pretty cool surf-rock Christmas album:
  3. Best part of the rant IMO.
  4. I feel like any ol' sporting goods store would have soccer jerseys? I mean I don't know what part of Texas you live in but I would assume there would be at least some soccer stuff in big stores. Y'know, the national sport in Mexico is not football. Unless you are looking for something specific... that might be hard. But you can just try it on and order online. Anyway, in terms of manufacturers, this was good from @MJWalker45 Use that as your guide to shop. I'm pretty slim and that's a good guide for me. I think it's important to know people's heights and weights to know exactly how the shirt is fitting them... I don't think that sizing guide works for guys who have larger upper bodies.
  5. The size you should order really depends on manufacturer, not the league. I wear a M in Puma, S in Nike and Adidas. Puma kits (a la Arsenal) are pretty skin tight (at least they were in 2015) and you definitely want to size up for that those. Nike kits (a la the Manchester clubs) are pretty true to size. Trying to think back to the Adidas shirt I had, pretty sure it was TTS like Nike. It's better just to go to a store, try a jersey on and see what size you are, even if it isn't the one you want. Bonus if its the same manufacturer. Soccer jersey sizing isn't exactly the easiest thing, not like buying a hockey or baseball jersey.
  6. I realize they are one in the same in this two-party system, but my disbelief is not placed with female non-votes for Clinton. Let's not get into name calling but after the accusations thrown against Trump involving women I didn't even entertain him winning popular votes with any segment of women: white, black, educated, uneducated, young, old, etc. Didn't matter if his opponent was a male or female, a Klingon or a Clinton. Then again, I'm not a pollster and maybe it's good I'm not in that line of work.
  7. I get it, I'm hot right now. Maybe this is a function of my surroundings. My landlord is a female Professor of History, my SO is a Muslim, and the only real great friend I have in this country is a feminist in a male-dominated industry. I've heard it all throughout this electoral process, but man, I really thought it would be a sentiment shared by more women. Guess not. Hillary was no doubt a flawed candidate but I didn't think she was that flawed.
  8. ELL OH ELL. What a great day to be in America as... not an American. We're in this together @Ice_Cap. Rows 2, 3, and especially 4 are astounding. Unbelievable. No self-worth.
  9. Was waiting at baggage claim at SFO with Max Chilton with his gorgeous girlfriend and left them alone. Maybe if he was alone I would have said something? I don't know. I mean he's just a regular dude (with a pretty awesome job, mind you) who just got off a 6 hour flight. He seems like a decent enough dude, but it's not like I'd want to entertain some doofus trying to have a conversation with me, so why should he? I'm generally for leaving celebrities alone.
  10. I'll probably be watching coverage with some wobbly pops just like I'd watch any soap opera. Interested to see whether I'll be laughing because I couldn't really care, or filled with anxiety because Trump really hates the trade agreement that is the basis of my resident alien status and I can't do much about it. Not sure if @Ice_Cap will have the same feeling as me if he's not here on a TN.
  11. I always feel as though I should get more use out of this, but curiosity always gets the best of me.
