Homebrewing Kit Arrived

I'm very excited since my beer homebrewing kit has arrived from Midwest Supplies in MN.  I'm hoping to have everything necessary to brew this weekend. 

The only thing holding me back is I need to figure out how to keep the fermenting beer cool (between 60 and 70 degrees F) here in Florida.  Most homes don't have basements and there's nowhere in the house that comes close to remaining at that temperature.  I'll be looking for suggestions on the Internet today, wish me luck!

Welcome Back Tropicana

I think Tropicana made the right move switching back to the old packaging. The new packaging seemed too generic.

NFL Draft 2009

I just finished reading a great article at Pro Football Talk by Mike Florio that Brad Biggs at the Chicago Sun-Times mentioned in his coverage of the Chicago Bears 2009 Draft Pick possibilities.

Florio talked about players testing positive for marijuana prior to the draft, and how the main concern of NFL teams was not that the player smoked weed - rather that the player is either 1) too stupid to stay clean for a certain period of time before the biggest test of their lives, or 2) addicted to the drug in question.

Obviously, all things being equal, if an NFL team has a choice of choosing someone that smokes or drinks vs. someone that never touches the stuff, they'll go with the "clean" person...but it's just mind boggling how someone like Percy Harvin from the University of Florida could test positive for marijuana right before he has the opportunity to sign for millions of dollars. Hopefully he's not addicted, because his possible stupidity just cost him a few million in the bank.
