  1. Will JKIDD coach the Nets next year? Where's Karl going? And, most importantly, who will coach the Pistons? (Mo Cheeks)

    Day 60 of sobriety. Had a few O'Douls Amber N/A beers at a party on Friday night, the first time I've been in an atmosphere with drinking in some time. I miss that bar scene, all the females, knowing all the regulars, chilling with all the other service industry people in the hood after work, and the drink hookups between our respective bars. Then I think about how those nights always end in a blackout or with drugs, and the dark feeling the next day as I wake up at 4pm looking for advil and gatorade. What has been accomplished: Saving money, not doing drugs, feeling more energetic and clearer thoughts on everything.
  3. Bengals D is a solid pick this week. Can't believe Crosby got more fantasy points than Aaron Rodgers in my league last night, that was my head-to-head matchup for Thursday night

    Best of luck through these hard times abusei I'm on day 40 of sobriety here, my roommate is also. He's been doing 90 meetings in 90 days, I have been working solid almost every night so that's keepin me off the sauce. When my normal schedule resumes and I have 4 nights off per week, it'll be much harder.
  5. So now it's Verlander v the Tribe, we got Fister vs the Sox Monday. Close with the AL Central race, every game counts!
  6. I'll be watching Verlander from Buffalo Wild Wings in downtown Brooklyn where they got that MLB package I wish I had. You know the kid is undefeated vs the O's, gotta keep the streak alive at Comerica!!

    On day 6 of sobriety here, I got a roommate who's doing the same thing so that helps. We both work at restaurant bars, his restaurant doesn't encourage drinking as much as mine. Getting to the gym, going on long bike rides, running for exercise etc have helped a lot. I talked with my boss about it, she is going to be supportive(she says now) so we'll see. Yo Vincent, sounds like you got that positivity going on back home, looking to do the same here if I can. I'll talk to ya soon.

    Thanks for the words of encouragement guys, the thing about this industry is I've been able to go from the extreme of working dive bars full of debauchery and drugs to a more mellow restaurant setting. Problem is, the restaurant owner is a raging alcoholic herself and she loves hanging out after work rippin shot after shot. I've lucked out by arranging my schedule to weeknights only, no more of the weekend blastoffs that get really out of control. Stringing 4 nights together helps motivate me to get outta there after we close with the idea that I don't want to be hungover the next work day(although that often fails) but the boss is kinda like the chief enabler. I've got a whole week to help get my head together, we are currently closed for remodeling. On day 4 now, feeling more energy than usual.

    There are about 8 meetings a day at this spot in NYC here that I've heard about, apparently they dedicate the location to strictly AA sessions. I've been hesitant to go because I've never done something like this before. My drinking has finally led to almost always moving on to drugs after a certain point, and it doesn't help that I make a living working behind a bar. Just lost a great girl to this dark situation and what it has done to my self control. I've hit day 3 of sobriety after a terrible bender. I'm not working again til next Monday, looking to get the courage to attend a meeting sometime between now and then.
  10. JV35 threw a nice 14 SO 8-inning game vs the Bombers tonight, love watching the home team while living in Brooklyn even if they blocked it out on ESPN I got my YES HD for this little series at Comerica. Cabrera with a 435 ft homer too
  11. prince fielder n cj wilson to the yanks, the post already states it as fact lol
  12. haha I used to eat lunch at this exact location when I worked in the West Village, never thought something like this could happen there, such a normal part of town
  13. yakety sax from the Benny Hill show. or the breakfast machine from Pee Wee's Big Adventure
  14. so Detroit is starting to look like Bushwick
  15. north brooklyn: it was just rain and wind. it's a sunny day now, shit was a letdown. :: puts away board games and uno cards::
  16. so you're flippin around and all of a sudden Schindler's List is on TBS and there's a little stripe at the bottom showing the guy on the next show dancin' around http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aoqclnkM2gg&feature=related
  17. Skyler has never looked as ugly as the scene at 4 corners
  18. the question is, could the investigation open back up and put that mullet guy in prison for actually committing the crime?
  19. what a great show. I've made it a point to have dinner at the bar at Rye Restaurant(Brooklyn), where they shot the scene where Al Capone beats down the old Greek guy in episode 4 "what happens now is I help you up. But not really" The boardwalk set itself is in my neighborhood, it's a spectacle. I think only the Deadwood set holds a candle as far as exteriors go
  20. it looks like maybe Walt is gonna stage some sort of 'set Jesse free or I burn down this lab and myself" shenanigans on the camera. That major tom karaoke video was funny and disturbing at the same time
  21. Marie had the crazy eye right before the crying scene in the police station. she scares me. I can't believe how shameless Jesse's house is getting

  23. does anyone know of any way to catch episode 2 of season four online? AMC isn't gonna air it again before this upcoming sunday, which I am DVR-ing, I've decided I can't just read a synopsis of any episode, I must see them all!
  24. I get my fried chicken from a place in Greenpoint, Brooklyn ,called Palace. They deliver! But I chose KFC, I really believe that the Colonel's recipe is the best. I love the doubledown.
