Bombastic Gary back to his best…but I’m sure some of the good mood/high scores are related to Jets’ performances…and long may they continue!

    Nice to be back to an upbest show vs. the last two with Tim Spear. You are definitely scoring higher with all these Jets wins.

    I think if by some chance the Jets win the Superbowl we’ll have to discount all your scores by at least 5 points for at least a month.

    Nice show g. Always glad to see some good inexpensive wines.

    Can we squash this biodynamic farming bullshit? If someone used tarot cards and astronomy to grow fruit, they’d be laughed away. But come up with a sexy name like ‘biodynamics’ and back it with some pseudo science and all the sudden it’s legitimate? Biodynamic farming is just another waste of resource that does nothing more that jack up prices and make ignorant people feel good. People can believe in all the silly shit they want, and I’ll even keep quiet while they vomit nonsense all over reality. But, the buck stops where it affects my wallet.

    Now off to my church of scientology to throw some more money away.

    Don’t give 2 poops about the NFL this weekend. It’s OSU vs Michigan week. Yeah, so it’s not a terribly important game this year. I don’t care. History says this could be a closer game than the spread dictates, but I’m going to go with my OSU-fanboy logic of predicting a blowout.

    OSU 50 Mich 31


    HaHa, great Gmann. Love your no-nonsense approach to things, God bless you. and cheers!

  • Exactly! That stuff isn’t cheap!

  • CLEhitman

    Jets 27- Cin 24. Your jets are startin to look like my cardiac kids from cleveland with this by the skin of their teeth business. No blowout here.

  • Seeing as how I know nothing about football I’m going to randomly guess Patriots 24 – Lions 14


    Ditching my palate on the outskirts of a twenty-year-old Tawny called Curious And Ancient from DelaForce,,,,, My God,,,,, ya need ta try this if you are a supporter of caramel and nuts, yes that’s right,,,,, “nuts in my mouth”… 😛

    I’m tellin’ ya, seek it out. It’s dy-no-mite! It’s powerful but not over the top.


    Super Delicious!!!!

    So you think the Eagles are going to beat the Bears? I beg to differ. Bears 20 Eagles 17

  • John__J

    I’d like to try a Vouvray with the grape Arbois in it, the other varietal allowed in Vouvray along with Chenin. I’ve yet to find one.

    I left a plcb job for a wine job in my neighboring state, DE. However I didn’t like it very much. Therefore I’m heading back to PA! Can’t wait!!!!!! The DE super store is a great place to shop but I wouldn’t want to work there…… Now I know.

    OK GV, now you like Sanchize? Wasn’t that you at the draft Thumbs Down? Just kidding.

    Jets -31 Bengals – 13 ….Nine and two baby

    Pats – 42 Lions – 13 Belisuck will pile on the points

    Saints – 35 Cowboys – 14

    normally i have nothing to praise for your show and pretty much anything you work on, but unfortunately i’ve got two small gripes today:

    1) i’m really jonesing for a “ooooooohhhh this,” and my comments and facebook urging isn’t working.

    2) thanksgiving secret pack, now and annual tradition with my family, isn’t going to happen! ordered on the 17th (when announced?) and it isn’t going to make it out to Oregon until after thanksgiving. i guess i should have upgraded from ground shipping, but it seemed like this got thrown together a bit late this year.

    oh well, i’m sure the wines will be great and it will be fun tasting along with you as always.

    keep up the (generally (meant sarcastically)) good work!

    corked a grocery store Barbera D’Asti earlier today for dinner this evening. Just had a sip and wow. Michelle Chiarlo 07 Barbera D’Asti. ~$10 and freaking delicious. Super ripe fruit with nice acidity and good length. Way more than I’d expect for a $10 wine.

    they squeaked by Texas, Browns.

    Have been a big fan of the Susana Balbo Torrontes for several years now, so I was anxious to hear your review.
    An 89? Ok, I’ll accept that. Very nice wine.

    It’s no secret, Gary:
    Patriots 23 – Lions 19
    Saints 23 – Cowboys 17
    Jets 19 – Bengals 11

    If I get all 3 right, is that a $300 value?

  • QOTD: Pats 30 Lions 24

    This game is scary. Short week, and an inspired Lions offense agains the Pats awful defense. This game better not ruin my Thanksgiving.

  • ChrisB

    was hoping you’d mention something to mott about the eagles beating the giants ha ha

    Patriots 24 – Lions 15

    You cracked the code. I actually haven?t watched a Bears game this year. I wasn?t really looking to show off any talent for prediction, but I?ll never hesitate to express my Eagle loyalty. Let me close by wishing you and your Bears an insincere good luck and a sincere happy Thanksgiving.
