The WrestleMania 32 Beeramid – Return To Form

WrestleMania 32 Beeramid

WrestleMania 33 is just a matter of weeks away taking place on April 2nd, 2017. As has been the case for the last several years Pip will once again make the trek to CLE and we’ll rekindle our relationship with the one and only… Beeramid. As we do every year we’ll also come up with a drinking game to help us along the way and as I sat down tonight to start putting that together … Continue reading

The Naughty Elf On The Shelf

Naughty Elf On The Shelf

It’s December so the Elf on the Shelf is back! If you’re like me, pics of this little guy are floating across all of your social media timelines. If you’re not familiar with the Elf on the Shelf, it’s an ingenious little tool for parents around Christmas.  Your elf comes to visit you just after the Thanksgiving holiday (we do it the day after, I know others that wait till December 1st).  Each day the elf … Continue reading

Down Year For The Beeramid – WrestleMania 31

Beeramid 2015 - WrestleMania 31

WrestleMania 31 was held on March 29, 2015. I’m a terrible blogger and I realized that I’d never done this recap. Lots of stuff going on in life these days… all good but it leaves little time for anything else. Pip, Mark and I once again set out to continue our tradition known simply as… The Beeramid. As we’ve been doing since WrestleMania 25, we created our yearly WrestleMania Drinking Game to help us along the … Continue reading

The 2014 Beeramid – WrestleMania 30

WrestleMania 30 Victory

WrestleMania 30 was held on April 6th, 2014.  Pip, Mark and I once again set out to continue our tradition known simply as… The Beeramid.  As we’ve been doing for quite some time now, we’d built out our WrestleMania 30 Drinking Game to help us on our quest.  We even managed to keep track of the action once again including our picks for the matches and how often we drank for each rule (more on that in … Continue reading

Beer Shots – Yuengling Lager – Clambake Big Bass Lake

Yuengling Lager On Big Bass Lake

Ran across this beauty the other day and just had to add it to the blog for Beer Shots.  I’m a HUGE fan of Yuengling Lager and during last year’s family clam bake it was my beer of choice. I’m happy to say that after some scheduling issues, we’ve got a date for this year’s get together in late June.  Can’t wait!

The 2013 Beeramid – WrestleMania 29

Beeramid 2013 - Row 7

WrestleMania 29 was held on April 7th, 2013.  Pip, Mark and I once again set out to continue our tradition known simply as… The Beeramid.  As we’ve done in years prior, we’d put together a drinking game to help us on our quest and for the second year in a row Mark acted as our on site reporter (IE, the sober-ish guy) who attempted to keep track of the action. I’ve got to say… this was … Continue reading

The Missing Elf On The Shelf

Missing Elf On The Shelf

The Elf On The Shelf is an ingenious little tool for parents around Christmas.  Apparently it’s been a thing for years but I’d been oblivious up until the last couple of years when “Charlie” came to our family to watch over G & C.  If you’re not familiar with the The Elf on the Shelf let me tell you a little about it. Your elf comes to visit you just after the Thanksgiving holiday (we do … Continue reading

Family Clam Bake 2012

Clambake 2012 - Hamburgers & Hot Dogs

We recently had our yearly family clam bake which has been a tradition for the last 25-30 years or so.  No one can quite remember exactly when the tradition started but we’ve been doing it every year for a LONG time and it has evolved into something quite special.  It’s essentially the one time per year that I get to see that side of my family and I can honestly say that I look forward … Continue reading

Unplanned Brilliance

Thumbs Up

This past weekend we had our annual family clam bake at my cousin’s house in Pennsylvania.  I’m happy to report that unlike last year, the weather completely cooperated and we had an AWESOME day.  As per tradition, we had 20+ dozen clams, hamburgers, hot dogs, corn, potatoes, shrimp, home made ice cream and beer.  🙂 Early in the afternoon, I was hanging out on the porch talking with my cousin and G was poking around … Continue reading

The WrestleMania Project

WrestleMania Logo

I’m a big professional wrestling geek… have been for more years that I care to remember.  If you’re a regular 406 reader you already know this.  Pip and I get together every year and build the Beeramid based on that year’s drinking game.  I often tell people that professional wrestling is a soap opera for guys but that’s probably giving it too much credit.  Bottom line is after all of these years I still really … Continue reading
