As of February 2018, Forbes reports the Hawks to be worth $1.15B, meaning Mr. Ressler here made a 35%/$300M profit in all of three years while presiding over the complete collapse of his team’s competitive fortunes, growth that seems destined to continue into the indefinite future as the NBA’s fortunes trend ever Read more

I’ll never understand why commenters get so sensitive about IPAs. Yeah, they’ve dominated the industry for the last 5 years or so but I’ve yet to meet these awful snobs who publicly shame you for not wanting one. You don’t want one? Cool, more for me. Read more

I’m sure he is. That’s why you didn’t say ex-buddy. But that short interaction screams beer snob in the worst way. Maybe I’m a beer-snob snob.

I had been thinking of IPAs as the new dry wine/black coffee - that people pretend to like because that’s what the ‘adults’ are drinking.

Nah, you were fine before. IPA’s, much like Sound of Music, are overrated.

My favorite beer is a double red called Shark Attack. There’s just something about red ales that puts them above the rest of the pack - it might be the holy combo of aggressive hops and malt notes. Unfortunately for me, it appears that even with increasing craft beer sections, the local grocery stores are barren when Read more

I didn’t much care for the taste of the beer that was commonplace at high school parties - you know, whatever cheap-ass swill we could actually get our hands on. I still wanted to get a nice buzz but I hated the taste of hard alcohol, so I mastered the art of drinking the beer without actually tasting it. I don’t Read more

On some mornings, I’d beg to differ.  Read more

I think you can. Or at least I have. When I started drinking craft beer in 2005-2006ish, I couldn’t stand hoppy beers. I stuck to the more heavily malty styles: porters, stouts, browns, etc. After a few years of mainly staying in those lanes while periodically trying hoppier styles that I almost universally hated, Read more

Your friend Matt is a dick and sounds like the bad stereotype of a beer snob (based on your 2 sentence interaction). Read more

I don’t know if it works for beer, but you can definitely learn to like different types of liquor. When I turned 21, a friend gave me a bottle of cheap brandy that I could barely stand to smell, much less drink. But when you’re newly 21 and short on cash for food, free alcohol is free alcohol.

I have never had a meatball experience where I  said to myself after “yes, this was a good dining decision.” Meatballs (and meatloaf) always feel like they could potentially be good, maybe, somehow, but in the end, they were wasted time, money and calories. Read more

This is some great writing - but your opinions are obviously invalid - anyone who thinks Eddie Money’s “Two Tickets to Paradise” is superior to “Africa” has no taste. Read more

I was going to get offended, but then I saw that you are from the rust-belt/Midwest area, which is a global hub of poorly executed or ill-conceived “comfort foods.” My grandmother, who was from Northern Kentucky, never served any meat that wasn’t leathery or a vegetable that wasn’t either raw and bathed in mayo or Read more
