    Heard his name, not sure if I have tried his wines. Was at the Garden for some of those Hulk fights. You have not been great with wine predictions as it's 2010 and S. Africian wines are not mainstream. I still think it was classic when Ronald Reagan talking to someone at a meeting (not knowing the mic was still on) and joked that “I just let the rockets go, boy will they be surprised (Russia) http://www.winelx.com

      Gary – Genie hat??? No way man. If you want to be a genie you need to shave your head and wear an earring!

    • SoCal

      QOTD: War Games â??Play a Game, Dr. Falken?â? (like that large punch card reading commodore 64 could launch warheads)
      Ok â?¦..loosely a soviet reference.

      Tarheel17â?¦just came back from a trip to Cape Town. Two suggestions: If you have a chance to visit Stellenbosch go to Rust en Vrede. If you are lucky enough to travel to Franschoek try eating at La Petite Ferme.

      QOTD: Definitely “DO YOU BELIEVE IN MIRACLES? YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”

      By the way Gary, please refresh my memory. I don’t remember Nikolai Volkoff defeating the Hulkster in any big matches. I DO remember Hogan pinning Nikolai in East Rutherford, NJ in October of 1985 to retain his title. I guess either you were too young to remember that, or maybe it was blacked out in NJ?????

      Just joking ya. Hope you stayed dry during the game.

      QOTD – The Chad Mitchell Trio from 1959 “The John Birch Society”

      “If your Mommy is a Commie, you gotta turn her in
      To the John Birch Society, the John Birch Society”

      The Cold War wasn’t glorious, and it was incredibly expensive, but diplomacy in the long run prevailed over the worst possible outcome (Nuclear Annihilation).

      Gary,
      Damn competitors supplying dissent merlot at affordable prices! They have some chutzpah!

      QOTD:

      The best Soviet American reference is WLTV and WL-this is obvious.

      Jokes aside one of the best movies with soviet/American reference is â??White Nightsâ? with Mikhail Baryshnikov, Gregory Hines, Isabella Rossellini and others.

      QOTD: Easily, I’ll have to go with Ronnie telling Gorbachev to tear down these walls though the Miracle on Ice is on the podium right along with that world changing event. A hockey game does not change the political and social landscape of an entire continent or world for that matter as did tearing down the Berlin Wall.

      As for wines from SA, my experience has been enlightening and a crapshoot. Some are so-so, ok and very good. Hit or miss for me but well worth the effort.

      Hallelujah to the Colts!

      Dom

      P.S. I would have given the MVP award to the O-Line. They kicked Bear butt.

      QOTD: Only one mention of “Hunt for Red October”? (Susan: comment 31)
      Great movie!!!

      “Russians don’t take a dump with out a plan.”

      …Susan, do you have VHS or Beta-max???
      I’m jealous.
      “Be kind, rewind!”

      Thx for correcting me, Portland Guy. You are def’ right. How could I forget this? I will never, ever forget seeing Rach III played live here–and I had FREE seats 3 rows back, center left, prime view for watching the pianist. I’ve never seen the STL Symphony work so hard in my life! It was even an effort for every one of them to keep turning the pages to keep up with the music. Performance art at its greatest!

      Lurker here, first time commenter. Great episode. Haven’t seen this CH yet although I live in San Jose and they love CH at my Costco. First you buy a bottle, then you go back and get a case! #14 was awesome!

      How about a Merlin hat?

      A Dunce cap??

      If somebody reviews Merlot, I’m leaving!

      QOD: I’m not sure if this is technically an American reference, but it was a common term heard here.

      ___________G-L-A-S-N-O-S-T!____________

      Mikhail Gorbachev – the best thing ever to happen to Russia.

      Second choice – “Attitude Adjustment Hour” at the Russian Vodka Room in NYC served by authentic Russian waitresses – reooowww! (52nd – near 8th)

      Yuw, so South African wines. Indeed, I think that South Africa will rule the wine scene within 15 years: so diverse terroir, interesting varietals, experiments, … . Great. Try the Independent Minds Merlot one time if you can have them. This wine is made by four major producers of SA who were in college together (I do not remember them all, but Jakob Cederberg was one of them). It’s tremenduos value for money, easily the level of a 2nd growth, but not even half the price. I have some bottles of 1998, and they are just opening up by now. The fruit is still very primary and fresh, I am excited to see what will happen within 4-5 years. So, the rumour that SA-wines do not cellar is just rubbish and peevish marketing jibber jabber.
      I had a SA Deetlef’s Estate Pinotage 2004 yesterday and it was great in QPR. Only 8,99 EUR, a very lovely light violet colour, but very persistent and profound aroma’s, well structured and all. Great. It had the appeal of a Nuits-Saint-Georges in all it assets (only the tasting profile was different: banana pie, cranberries and strawberry liquor, charcoal smoke, cacao and in the end jalapeño peppers with some roasted garlic – especially that last one I never met in any wine). Nice. Overall nice. A very good food wine.
      QOTD: I’ll just go for the Vodkatini’s, supposed to be invented in the US.

      Decent episode today Gary. QOTD: Don’t know for sure probably something from the movie RED HEAT. My personal favorite proverbs, All is not gold that glitters. Ð?Ñ?Ñ?́жба дÑ?Ñ?́жбой, а слÑ?́жба слÑ?́жбой. “Friendship is friendship and service is service”.
