I don't know how many times I had the '3' turned around backward in the ol' Gutenburg press.  We'd get 20 pages printed out and then you'd yell, "Dammit, Duquesne put the 3 in backwards again, you dumb sunuvabitch!"  I felt so much shame ...

But your taut writing about women's soccer made the struggle worthwhile

You forgot to add, "...in the blistering heat." You always have to put something in there about the weather when talking about the old days to the kids.

It was Texas, after all, so that part was pretty real

So which one of the 4 pages was the hardest to typeset each day?

Oi oi oi, we ran long papers in my day. Of course, we didn't lay them out by hand. Somebody did it on a computer. But I had to know how to count picas and all that bullshit just in case. And we used a computer system from the early '80s with a green screen. YOU HAVE NO IDEA HOW BAD IT WAS

No way HE would know. It's not like he's a computer programmer or anything.

I agree with Lyle. 

Depends on the variety. I like the Marzen. The Bock is the worst of the lot.

It's good for its category, cheap beer.  If you are given the option of Shiner and Budmillercoors, Shiner wins hands down.  Yeungling is the Pennsylvania equivalent.

 

Compare Shiner to a good craft beer, Shiner loses.

All the shiner beers have a metallic taste in my opinion. 

 

My favorite Texas bock is Martin House’s Bockslider. Brewed right here in Fort Worth and named after the Toadies tune. They have a few collaborations with the Toadies.

This is a good synopsis. I would say Harpoon is the equivalent here or maybe even most Sam Adams varieties.

I posted that for you (and to let Lyle know we're watching him).

Shiner Black is a sound brew. Some of their specialty brews like the peach and pecan beer (Cheer, I think?) are okay. Their cream ale is Lone Star level of nastiness, though.

 

The bock isn't all that good, unless you are talking about it in these. Then it is amazing.

Those look worth a try, although perhaps not at that price

That price is fine for what they are. The problem for you and me is that the shipping is the killer. Last year when I was down I made sure to stop in Shiner and stock up on about $200 worth between the two...
