I was shocked that Barry Sanders retired. He would have easily broken the all time rushing record. Which is shocking that he would have done it on a horrible Lions team.

    Wow E,
    how could I forget that episode! with the carlo rossi. Thanks man. Agree about the Cahors 100%.

  • Grasshopper

    I guess I will show my age, but one of the most touching and sad retirements for me was Johnny Carson! Was really the end of an era and generation and his final show was very sad….

    Congrats to TS, Stallion and Michael on the free shipping.

    GV – you still offering free shipping the city of the team that beats the Jets? I hope so as I can not wait until the Jets/Bears game!!!

    BTW – think it is very cool how close you seem with your parents and how many things they did as a kid has stayed with you and made you who you are today!!

    QOD-Bo Jackson….he could of been the greatest.

    Am a huge fan of all the Spring Mountain (Napa) wines you refer to. Pride, Togni, Barnett, Terra Valentine, Paloma. Would make a great episode.

    I was just watching some old WLTV episodes, and I saw you saying something about â??if the Jets loose weâ??ll ship to you for freeâ?. Well, I donâ??t live in Cleveland but since the only Ohio team youâ??ll face before the postseason is the Browns….Anyway, to cut a long story short, how about reaching out to all us College Football Veyniacs. Its not easy to support the wine habit on an academicâ??s salary! The retirement question kind of gets flipped around in college football where most of the time you wonder if a coach is ever going to retire.

    QOD: I hated to see Johnny Carson leave the show. It was worth staying up late for.

    Thanks, Gary for making me one of your “answerees”. I am truly humbled. 😉

    Congrats to Michael, Stallion and Tampa Steve. Way to go!! Let us know how many cases you all ordered by December 31.

    Gary-
    Thanks for answering my question! Loved the format today.
    I was in the store today to pick up a couple of bottles. I was going to say hi, but apparently you were in a meeting. next time.
    QOD: Michael Jordan the first time. I was devestated. Good thing his baseballe career didn’t go so well.
    Have a great weekend!

    Long time lurker, first time poster.

    Great job Gary. Keep up the excellent work. My wine purchases now seem to mirror your WL TV reviews! You have helped me find some great “school night wines”.

    Gary..I forgot to say props for talking about Curtis Martin. He quietly became the 4th greatest rusher of all time. He definitely deserves more love.

    Just ordered from free.winelibary.com. Cabernet Franc (one of my favorite grapes right now along w/ Mourvedre), $34, free shipping, I couldn’t resist! The one thing I’ve observed though is sometimes a $40 california cab franc tastes to me like a $15 Bourgeuil. Thoughts?

    qotd: there are many whether sports or whatever. Usually the retirement is due to their age. So to leave early, and unexpectedly, and at the top of your game, holds the biggest impact on me. I’m talking retirement though, not death or being forced to, just voluntary. So for me, it would be Bill Watterson. He was author of Calvin and Hobbes. The strip only ran 10 years. I’m not a comic strip guy really, but he was in a league all his own.
    With that in mind, before you retire from WLTV Gary, how about giving us a vin jaune episode, and 1 on tasting the few (13-18) California charbono’s out there?

    Here…but too late

    Never had this wine but Mt Veeder area puts out serious grapes. QOTD-no body that retired has had any big effect on me that I can think of. http://www.winelx.com
