    A few days late watching this one, but it was appropriate as I just had a Chateau St Georges St Emilion with dinner last night. Nothing wrong with going Merlot every so often

    “Link it up, Mott!!” T-shirt is an AMAZING idea. Dude- totally do it. Totally.

    QOTD: Packing. 1 week back home with the fam went WAY too quickly.

    Link it up shirt would be rad. Perhaps a Sniffy Sniffy could be better. Graphics would be key. Any chance you could list every link Mott has ever ‘upped’ over the past 375 episodes on the back? Dunno. At least it would make some graphic designer work for his/her money. I would suggest a do you spit or swallow shirt, but I am sure that would cause a law suit and would most likely be completely inappropriate. Hope everyone had a great holiday.

    Wow, been out of the loop for awhile. Finally catching up on all the WLTV episodes I missed over the holidays. I’m a family & friends over pixels kind of guy.

    QOTD: Even though this is over a week late I imagine it’s still a valid answer…probably going downtown to spends some quality time with my wife and maybe grab a movie.

    QOTD: belatedly trying to catch up on ‘old’ episodes of WLTV that I missed while I was out of town for a week. If there’s any time left over, I’ll watch a video/movie.

    Great show, Gary. Even when the wines aren’t hits, you still make it fun to watch. Love that you did merlot, by the way. Too many haters.
