Hey, I’ve been there. Often.

Well at least Seth is in a good place. This ish is getting to be quite the downer.
Alcohol. That’s pretty funny. What has killed millions, caused devastating health problems for millions, and destroyed millions of lives and families? Also the cause of much of our violent crime? Hint: it ain’t covid.

I understand that I have a different perspective. But as someone that has so much time deployed in iraqistan, Along with something like 18 months in Altus Oklahoma for training, Ive had a hard time understanding why people declared they needed drugs and alcohol to survive one month in their own house… where they live, where their family is, where some of their hobbies are, where they can go to the grocery store, where they have phones and Skype, where they could still bike/walk (in some areas), to survive.
I didnt see 2002 SECCG at all, nor any of that season, and I watched 2005 in a tent on tape delay.
I love football as much as anyone. But yea, I agree with your sentiment. And this isnt teetotaling, I’m not perfect by long shot, hell I’ve been in recovery for many years, I guess it’s just a vet thing. My lady and I plan to hit the water , when the tourist are gone , every weekend if there’s no football. It’s gonna be a great blessing
Yeah, I’m not judging anyone. Over the course of my life I’ve consumed as much alcohol as anyone. I drink a LOT less now. My drinking now is mostly confined to beer while watching football and when at the lake. But when discussing “safety” , it’s kind of ironic how people act like covid-19 is the end of the world and alcohol is joke material.
Have you considered that you might be completely missing the point?
Have you ever “caught” alcohol poisoning?
Covid is more dangerous to me than heroin is. Because i don’t fucking use heroin. Get it?
Denial is the first sign of addiction Derek. I suggest you seek help for your heroine addiction.

And I recommend both of you seek help for your Covid-19 addiction.
We thank you for your service
How many kids under 18 do you have? It’s been my observation that each kid ~= 10 drinks per week during Covid.
Respect to you, fellow Veteran. I also spent many months at Altus when I was getting my flight training. First time I’d ever seen a tumbleweed in real life. 😎
God made coffee to help us go to work. He made beer to reward us for our hard work. He gave us gave us 18 year old Scotch to reward our patience with idiots.
Old Scratch is the diabolical asshole behind rum-vodka fruity drinks because he hates ME!
It’s not alcohol that’s the problem. It’s free will and lack of self control.
Well, G*d certainly didnt make you a substance abuse counselor. Nor a minister.
GRITS(Great Ranger In The Sky) made me this way. Being a Ranger didn’t make me this way. I became a Ranger because I am this way. I could never be a minister. But I have some experience with substance abuse. Never allowed that to interfere with my job. I ain’t working today and I am day drinking because I’m on VACATION!!!
Can i get a Amen…..
Bwahahaha!!! I’m laughing with you, not at you my friend.
As someone who enjoys good Irish whiskey or a nice, dark, stout? Those fruity concoctions will sneak right the fuck up on you if you aren’t careful.
Ain’t that the truth. Probably the most drunk I’ve been in my life was when I was playing golf and drinking beer with some buddies. After the round, one of my dumbass friends wanted to go by Fat Tuesday’s. I was thirsty and started drinking those fruity things like they were Gator Aid. Plus my judgement was already significantly impaired. It did not end well.
Honest question…is that really Seth’s account?
Yes it is. Seth has 2 small kids at home and has a terrible case of cabin fever. Like all of us, he’s very, very anxious to get his kids back in school because the virtual learning thing was a joke in the spring.
It just seemed a lil out of character. Hes very careful with his twiiter usually. Is he your bestie or something? Just oddly personally specific.
Is he my bestie? WTF? I just follow him on Twitter for football news and he’s shared his personal opinions about everything that’s been going on since March.
A few years ago, a friend posted on fb that in the event of the apocalypse, what is our special apocalypse talent that could help society survive. My answer then – I MAKE GIN.
Now in the midst of a pandemic, my talent for COVID is the same. I MAKE GIN.
I also make tonic, cocktail cherries and other assorted cocktail related items.
If it can be played safely, I hope there is football but my enthusiasm for the season is diminishing each week. With or without football, I can make it through because I MAKE GIN. I can make it through because I am fortunate enough to be a good cook. I have a good grill and a smoker and lucky to the have the funds to stock them with delicious cuts of meat and vegetables. I can make it because there is tremendous amount of great music available.
I can make it because delicious food and drink plus an day/evening of music can restore my soul and faith in our humanity.
Saw a meme somewhere that asked for patience from bartenders when this is all over. When we ask “is there any alcohol in this drink?” they have to remember that we’ve been mixing our own for the past 6 months.
