"Hey Bill!! Kevin!! Look who's here!! It's Bridget!!!"
I then reveled in watching them both squirm throughout their conversations. I know it was Kaleem's birthday but I want to thank him for giving me that gift. A lot has changed since we last saw Bridget cuz she now has 2 kids.
The bar was ok itself. I had been there before for Silvia's birthday last year. Beer was expensive though, but that's to be expected. One thing that annoyed me though was the fact the had Miller Lite, but not Miller Genuine Draft. How the hell do you have one and not the other? I don't want to pay $4 for a lite beer. I want all the alcohol in me I can get. Seeing how Salud is a tequila bar I bought Silvio and Kaleem tequila shots (got Bill one too, just cuz he asked me not to.) I really wanted some Old Grand Dad Bourbon like we had on Friday at Brauer House. Unfortunately they didn't have it. Though they dont have MGD, so why would they have Grand Dad?! If you haven't heard of Old Grand Dad or drank it, it can be described in this following quote from Brauer House owner Steve Brauer himself.
"I used to drink that stuff. Well until I started pissing
That's good stuff.
Today was lovely though cuz the Bears beat the SHIT out of the Carolina Panthers. Ya the final score was only 13-3 but the game was not that close. I mean our defense dominated them. Carolina came into the game averaging 27.7 points a game. They BARELY got 3 against us. Also there was all this talk about how great their defensive line was, and that they would just drive Kyle Orton insane. Well Orton had about 15 minutes to throw the ball everytime he dropped back. The Panthers D-Line didn't get a single sack. The Bears D-Line? They only got 8. I'm telling you this defense reminds me of the Ravens from a couple years ago, and yes the 85 Bears. They aren't as mean as that 85 team was, but they are more talented. If they got a mean streak in them they'd be amazing.
I'm watching Sunday Night Football on ESPN and the announcers brought up a good point. Why is it that on all these shows on the NFL, and on ESPN where they talk about Terrell Owens (WHO'S NOT EVEN PLAYING) 10 hours a day, does nobody mention the Chicago Bears? They seriously get absolutely no respect from anybody. I think this week may change that, but to be honest I don't mind the fact they get no pub. The White Sox didn't get any publicity this year either. All they did was win the World Series.
Anyway, I'm going to go watch the rest of this blowout football game, and maybe just go to bed. I'm off of work tomorrow cuz of the holiday on Thursday, and I need sleep. Now seems just a good a time as any to get it.
