:rofl: awesome line, I love it... :rofl:
Anyone who drinks PBR most likely deserves it.
And sure, fishermen wear hooded sweatshirts and fleece jackets with hoods cuz fishin' weather is sometimes cold, but come on, real fishermen don't wear anything called "hoodies."
Not to mention that the culturally literate never wear legible clothing.
PBR/Rainier, Tomato Juice, Worsteshire, Lime, Pepper & Horseradish
Po' Man's Bloody Mary.
Well apparentley I'm not a real fisherman because sometimes I drink PBR and do wear hoodies. I'll pass on BB.
I'll drink any beer made (well, I have to be drunk to deal with Heineken). I have a closet full of hooded sweatshirts. I just won't wear a BB one. I'm plenty of a real fisherman,
Don't skip coming down for a beer just because Salmo doesn't like PBR.
Sg, you don't have any legible clothing? Nothing with a logo big enough to read about? I think that way too much gear from big companies has too much of their logo advertising everwhere. I'm a boring guy, how about some boring gear?
If my host hands me a PBR, I'm drinking it, thanking him or her and might even ask for another. Not my choice, not what I stock, but it comes in a red white and blue can, that is enough for me.
Hell, I'd drive from Edmonds just to meet up with you guys and Salmo. This here intranet thingy that Mr Gore invented is a funny medium. People are usually just a tad bit different in person. I might even get along with Coach if I met him in person...
Great, you can bring my raft with you!
I read years ago that beer is an acquired taste. When I was a kid I acquired a taste for Oly and Rainier because those were the most available beers in this region. I drank Bud until microbrew became available. Somehow I acquired the taste for these ales and Porters and lost my taste for the macro stuff. I have no quarrel with those who drink PBR, and if I'd never tried anything else, I might like it too. But I've tasted micro for over 20 years now, and I ain't going back.
If my host hands me a PBR, I might take it, or I might just politely pass and ask for a glass of water. The color of the can is irrelevant. Any company that thinks they can sell me their beer by appealing to me with patriotic colors ought to just try making better beer instead.
I was just having fun and didn't mean to pick on Mozart or anyone else. (Although I'd think with a handle like Mozart, his self concept wouldn't be contingent on what anyone here has to say.)
As for legible clothing, I'm anti. Philosophically I think it's poor form to walk around being a walking billboard advertising some companies stuff without being reimbursed for it. Companies used to give away branded ball caps in hopes of obtaining some exposure. Idiots (sorry about that) today pay $10-15 to wear advertising for someone else. The strap on my un-branded fishing ball cap wore out, and now I have some branded ones that I got for free, so I might wear them because I'm also philosophically opposed to waste.
I like art shirts tho, and used to collect T-shirts with fish art on them, but they've gone out of style and are hard to find. I saw a cool fish shirt at a fly shop and almost bought it until I saw that "Sage" was also prominently featured on it. So I passed it by.
FWIW, I read about an informal survey in the 80s indicating that the amount of legible clothing owned by individuals was inversely proportional to their IQ. I was not keen on legible clothing before that, but my opinion was probably further influenced by that conclusion.
I wont be able to make it sorry guys I have to get my racecar ready for claycup at deming speedway
Well, I will be there around 4:30.
How do we actually meet? Should we choose an area to sit or something?
I obviously have no idea what any of you look like with the exception being Josh Root who apparently is a pimp inspector or something.
Good luck at the cup races tomorrow. Might make it up to watch. I haven't been to Deming Speedway in a few years. You guys put on a great show.
Can you be anymore into yourself? I'm sorry Chris but even though Salmo may be an upstanding member here I've never seen someone who thought they were so smart and so much better than everyone else. I'm glad you won't be there today. I would have to bring some PBR, burp in your face, and wear some clothing with labels all over them.
The pimps can inspect themselves. I'm actually more of a one man "Ho quality control" department.
Or at least I was until I got married. *Insert Ray Romano joke about marriage here*
It isn't wrong to be "into yourself" and have pride in yourself, and believe in yourself, and to tell others of your tastes.
You can be all those things I just mentioned without thinking you are better than everyone else though many people don't seem the understand that.
It is people in my generation (20s and younger) that seem to strongly dislike those that have their head on their shoulders and aren't afraid to say it like it is. My generation mostly dislikes those who simply can't be "chill" and let anyone do whatever they want without letting them know what they think.
I respect those people that throw a stick in the spokes. I f*cking hate the word "hoodie" and I f*cking hate branded clothing.
I agree with everything he said except the stuff about PBR and Rainier. Those beers have their time and place in my heart of hearts forever. :beer2:
And I don't think Salmo is a pretentious wanker for not liking those beers.
