Just got turned on to WLTV and am LOVING it! Lotta catching up to do, and this episode was great. Gotta get my hands on some Gigondas. It’s too bad that some of these wines are hard to find. Kind of fun adventuring to find them though.

    My drinking game is very straightforward and easy to understand: Put a bottle of Irish wishky in the middle of a table. Someone starts to drink 1/10 of it and passes the bottle on clockwise or counterclockwise. The first person who is laying under the table because of the lack of some coordination disabilities of her/his brain/nerve/muscle complex is to buy the next round.

    “East coast obnoxious”, love it! Hey Gary, you’re E.C.O. friendly!

    QOTD: I’m still playing catch up with these episodes, so i’ll have to wait and see what mannerisms and show format you’re rocking in 2010 before I can make a game! Oh yeah, and i’ll need to get some friends into WLTV cos drinking by yourself is one thing, but solo drinking games? Slippery!

    Gary another great show. I have not had a gigondas yet but I know it will happen someday. I just want you to know that I would be getting a lot more school work done if it was not for this show. Thank You for giving me this excuse.

    Choco Taco!! Best ice cream treat ever! We were searching for them just last weekend, but couldn't find any :(

    U2 and Coldplay have more in common than you might think. They both suck.

    QOTD: This will take some thought …
