In a world where every Tom, Dick and Harriet has a podcast about every and anything, Troy Lavallee has come up with the best idea yet; bring in a guest, split a six-pack and talk about whatever comes to mind while enjoying said delicious craft beer (this week it happens to be the delicious super-IPA pictured above). When the beer’s done, so is the show. Believe me, pals, it’s easy to have a good time on the Beer Pressure Podcast. I did on Episode 2. Lots of happy chatter, much like this delicious ale, flowed freely.
So that’s it. give a listen, and like Bartles & Jaymes we thank you for your support.
My buddy @jaynog is the best, most honest Real Life Ref ever. And I think we can all agree that a real life referee would be the most annoying entity ever. But still - calling a personal foul on the new mayor of New York for not canceling school last week during a snow storm is pretty footballsy, and funny.
This Street Fighter 2 oral history pretty much is giving me the nerdiest nerdgasm ever. THAILAND!
I can’t even begin to count how much time I spent (not wasted - there’s no such thing as wasting time when you’re delivering hadoukens, people) in high school playing this game. Ryu, Ken, Dhalsim, Guile…they’re like family to me. This basically is a family reunion for me.
Free tickets tonight for our football comedy panel show,”The Offensive Line”, at Stage 72, 9pm - join us, pals!
If you’re in NYC and looking for something unique to do surrounding the Super Bowl 48 madness I got you covered…
A mix of interviews, stand-up, videos, free-form panel discussion and more, The Offensive Line will be the funny football show where people from comedy, the NFL, pop-culture and more will let it all hang out. I’ll be the ringmaster of events, so please rest assured this will be a scrum where no flags will be thrown and people will definitely be giving each other the business.
Click here for ticket info! Finally, a chance to say you were at Pittsburgh Steelers star running back Le’Veon Bell’s comedic breakout performance!
My brother, @TheGeoffman, loves making TV show credits mashups. His latest sees “Mad Men” as a lighthearted 80’s sitcom. If you know this show then you’ll appreciate just what a 180 degree tonal shift this is. Love it. And somehow it works - everyone loves “Draper”!
We had a double Tigers party this week on @tailgatefan @ the SEC Championship. I don’t think Auburn has stopped partying since their improbable win in The Iron Bowl, and I don’t think they’ll stop until the BCS title game in January, either. That’s living the War Eagle high life.
Anyway, M-I-Z! Z-O-U won’t wanna miss this week’s full TV episode. “Tailgate Fan: College Edition” airs Thursday at 6:30pm on the CBS Sports Network.
Move over “A Charlie Brown Christmas” as my annual must-see, feel-good holiday special
Last Saturday was maybe the craziest in college football history. And we had the chance to cover the pre-game to that OTHER amazing game, Ohio State/Michigan. It was a blast…and I’m not just saying that because all my immediate in-laws are Wolverines. See for yourself on our web highlight show here, and don’t miss all our victors-hailing exploits tonight on “Tailgate Fan: College Edition”, 6:30pm EST on the CBS Sports Network. #goblue
Seriously - drinking imported German Schnapps, eating donuts and stomping on Buckeyes in the freezing cold of 8am is way more fun than advertised.
A fresh tray of Michigan logo Jell-O shots? Oh you Wolverines are adorable. @tailgatefan (at UofM Tailgate)
Get ready for the pants-expanding gastro-spectacular that is Thanksgiving by joining us for a 5 minute food-filled free-for-all through a LSU pre-game party. Easily one of the best tailgates to be found from coast to coast, LSU has all the filth, fun, food and frivolity of a day well spent in New Orleans, just 90 miles northwest on a pleasant collegiate campus. And with football.
I ate more boudin in one day than I had in the previous 39 years of my life, and that’s a good thing. But that’s what happens in Louisiana is the American capitol of eating, drinking and loving life. You need to go to a game there and leave yourself a good 6 hours beforehand to laissez les bon temps rouller.
And hey, maybe you’ll run into my friend and he;ll teach you how to speak Tailgate Cajun while you’re there.
If you guys make it through a freezing cold Sunday, chock full of football, capped off by Broncos @ Pats (possibly my death knell), join me at midnight EST on @ComedyCentral for a late-night Cinema Supremo screening of “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off’. It’s one of everyone’s favorites, and as you’ll see from this promo, one of the most quotable of all-time. Tweet along with us using #FerrisBueller - hit us up with some good stuff and we might run your tweet during the movie. And then you might become tweet-famous. Which would be almost as cool as being The Sausage King of Chicago. Almost.
At LSU they keep their adult beverages in where the drinks eventually send them. #beercoffin
Another reason to love New Orleans? This isn’t considered a “special occasion vehicle”.
This is my favorite quote of the season so far on @tailgatefan. Tacos ‘n cigars - oh Rutgers, you’re adorable. So #JerseyStrong. Don’t miss an all-new episode of “Tailgate Fan: College Edition”, tonight @ 6:30pm EST on the CBS Sports Network.
