    The second half just started. Hate to ruin the surprise, but that team went 34-0. 
    Jody was a heck of a coach!

    umm its hazy bois brah, i understand as a Canadian you might not know that. juicy neipas would also suffice.
    so Electric jellyfish is what i'd call a great entry level hazy. sadly Texas has been a wasteland for hazies until recently. Pinthouse was one of few places that made anything worth drinking. Total Wine has 75 beers on the shelf labled "hazy" something but 99% are weak.
    if you want a true hazy experience you primarily have to buy direct from a brewery and that means place like Pinthouse Pizza, Turning Point in DFW, Celestial in Dallas, or Spindletap in Houston. They are the Texas standards in tropical haze.
    outside of texas if you travel or have shipping access you can get a little better with breweries like Hop Butcher, Saint errant, Phase 3, Treehouse, Trillium or Weldwerks.
    Top hazy examples for my palate are: Diamonds in my Mouth, DDH juicy bits, JJuliusss, Azor Ahai, Energy Void, Fog Runner or Andromeda.
    My hazy preference as i've ultimately taught @Rookie97 and @Hook ‘em Danno is one of ultimate hazy AF clarity, you cant see through it and its almost pulpy and orange. its gotta be packed with tropical flavors like passionfruit, guava, citrus, grapefruit etc, it needs to have a smooth finish with no or almost no bitter hopburn at end, and they are usually around 8-10% ABV.

    Texas baseball has acquired its new Ace. Lampasas star 4A football and baseball player Ace Whitehead announced via his twitter that he was committing to the Longhorns to play baseball.
    Whitehead is an athlete.  In fact, he is also one of the best quarterbacks in the state of Texas as well.
    He has been a three-year starter at quarterback for the Lampasas Badgers. In his first year, he earned district 13-4A-1 Newcomer of the Year. As a sophomore, he was the district 14-4A-1 Offensive MVP. This past season, he continued to receive accolades as he was crowned as the AP 4A Offensive Player of the Year.
    In three seasons he has passed for 9,555 yards for 108 touchdowns. Furthermore, he also ran for 1,158 yards and another 35 touchdowns on the ground. As a junior he combined for nearly 5,000 yards and 75 total touchdowns in 15 games. Whitehead led the Badgers to the semi-finals of the 4A D1 playoffs where they lost to eventual state champions Carthage 49-42.
    Due to his height at 5’10, baseball seemed like the optimal route. Whitehead makes it official that he will be a Longhorn after his senior year.
    “Texas has always been my dream school, I grew up watching the Longhorns play and spent most of my time in Austin,” Whitehead said.

    On the diamond he is a left-handed pitcher and outfielder. Before the season ended via the COVID-19 pandemic, Whitehead was hitting .527 while leading the Badgers in runs, hits, and stolen bases. On the mound, he was 3-1 with a 0.92 ERA. Regardless of the sport, he can quite literally do it all.
    “I believe playing quarterback has helped enhance my leadership abilities and has made me more mentally tough,” Whitehead explained.
    While his baseball season was cut short, Whitehead is staying in shape with “workouts in Llano, every day.”
    Before he arrives in Austin, Whitehead still has a career to close-out at Lampasas. The Badgers rode a dream season into the semi-finals where they lost to undefeated state champions, Carthage, by seven points. Lampasas was the only team all season to lose to Carthage by just a single possession.
    Whitehead wants to end his miraculous high school career one way and one way only. 
    “Win State, that’s the only goal,” Whitehead said.
    With Ace Whitehead, Texas Baseball is getting a bonafide competitor. A winner, a guy who can do it all, and someone who already bleeds burnt orange.
    Players like Whitehead are what make high school and college sports so special.
    “They should know they’re getting a Longhorn through and through, and one who wants to win titles,” Whitehead said.

    Guys, I would like to tell you that it’s admirable you were able to keep up the debate this long. I honestly don’t know how you did it. 
    Now, go have a nice evening with your wives. They have probably been searching for you for days.

    I love college football.  I have since the 70s.   In a way it’s an escape from politics, work, etc.... 
    I certainly do not watch it to be lectured about politics - or anything else.  It ceases to be what I enjoy.  They have “the right” to do whatever they want at UT, and I have “the right” to stop donating / spending money on them and watching it on TV.  
    I have listened to the Ticket in Dallas since the mid-90s.  And it became a bunch of sports guys lecturing me and mocking how I vote.  “Their right” and I turned it off and haven’t really missed it since.  UT athletics is treading on dangerous grounds IMHO.  If I want political lectures I certainly won’t ask a college football player or Chris DelConte for it.  There are better forums for that kind of thing.

    Wasn’t in Matagorda but farther east in Louisiana over the weekend.  The bigger reds were up in the marsh for some reason which isn’t usually the case until October-ish.  Here are just a few pics of the fish we caught...could have posted 20 pictures but no one wants to see every fish.  My buddy landed a huge bull red that was 48” but our scale batteries weren’t working so I’m speculating it was around 30lbs based on one we caught last year that was a little smaller and weighed 24.8lbs.  I had one probably in the 20-25 lb range at the boat and my buddy missed it with the net, and he hadn’t stowed his rod he was using and it tangled the line and it snapped.  I was super pissed but he was probably more pissed at himself than I was at him.
