lines of the day – ‘this is like Cola in a three litre bottle on the bottom shelf…for 49c’ and ‘when’s the last time you hard cried…over sports?’

Surprisingly this is one of my favourite all-time episodes. GV coming out with a non-stop barrage of quality one-liners, a couple of laid back guests who are happy to let GV take all the limelight, and lots of sports-related asides. These sort of guests really work well with Gary as he’s helpful in developing their wine knowledge and enjoyment without making them feel stupid.

    1999 1st game of Jets season you cried….maybe you cried because in that game against the PATRIOTS Testaverde blew out his achilles and they did end of losing….But you did not cry because they lost to the 49rs on a 90 yard run or whatever…as that is not possible. Keepin it real.

    QOTD2: Alexander Keith’s, no question. Why the he** don’t they export it to the states?

    QOTD 2: Watching hockey at an arena reminds me of when I was a little kid when I went to more hockey games with my family, so I have to have a hot chocolate!

  • Jim in Atlanta

    I am not a big hockey fan and have only been to 2 games in Atlanta. I did enjoy them because they seem a lot faster and rougher in person than on TV. So I guess hockey needs to get more of us to attend games because watching on TV is not making me a fan. I would probably drink beer at a hockey game.

    Gary,
    Good show.

    QOTD 1: I was a big Blues fan in high school and now with work and limited free time it is hard to follow all the sports so I just stick to baseball and football now.
    QOTD 2: My beverage of choice at any sporting event is an ice cold beer. As long as it is not Miller, Coors, or Budweiser.

    Quite a boring show for me – just didn’t feel like the wines were the focus on the show.

    QOTD – never gone to a hockey game

    Guests seemed pretty cool, although the wines were not.
    QOTD1 – I am a hockey fan, therefore no marketing for me. Go Canes!
    QOTD2 – drinking in a cold arena is not my bag.
