@  Canada Mets Fan : (28 Nov 2015 - 10:13)

Music too!! what's on the set list?

@  brian stark : (28 Nov 2015 - 09:50)

Yep, guests are expected to start arriving around 3, the full bunch after the ECU game ends (around 5), with food served around 6. I expect total destruction to be over by 7, with music and smores commencing shortly after!

@  Canada Mets Fan : (28 Nov 2015 - 09:42)

Sounds like an all day party, the best type.

@  brian stark : (28 Nov 2015 - 09:37)

Well, it's supposed to be sunny and low 70's all through the day, cooling down to the low 50's tonight (right on time for the firepit, smores and roasted marsmallows). Perfect cookout weather...

@  Canada Mets Fan : (28 Nov 2015 - 09:30)

brian, you know how to do up a cook out!! I hope the weather cooperates for you.

@  brian stark : (27 Nov 2015 - 20:38)

You know it. Probably several different kinds. And wines, too...

@  Canada Mets Fan : (27 Nov 2015 - 18:44)

An all-out assault on the colon. Sounds delicious. I take it there will be beer?

@  brian stark : (27 Nov 2015 - 18:31)

Desserts, wine and beer, ice, and other drinks are supplied by the other guests. Maybe a side or two, as well.

@  brian stark : (27 Nov 2015 - 18:30)

Also, making 10 pounds of my famous potato salad, my wife is making a huge batch of green bean cassarole (she has some secrects that make it better than any GBC you have ever had). Plus about three dozen deviled eggs (again, she makes it special, best deviled eggs you have ever had). It will be a feast for the ages.

@  brian stark : (27 Nov 2015 - 18:27)

As for the cookout, I'm doing: Three 3 pound pork tenderloins marinated in my secret NC BBQ sauce, four pounds of fresh sausage (made by a farmer/butcher who lives around here), thirty jumbo chicken drumsticks marinated in my ginger/soy sauce, thirty chicken wings marinated in my tomato based chipotle sauce (grew the jalapenos and smoked them myself), ) burgers, dogs, brats, italian sausage, and kielbasa (I made the kielbasa myself, using my grandfathers recipe and the grinder I inherited from him). Then, the piece de resistance, a Tulsa Tornado. Weave eighteen backon striips (nine one way, nine the other), get two pounds of breakfast sausage (ground like hamburger) and spread it out in a flat square on the bacon, take another long smoked kielbasa link and put it at one end of the square. Then, sushi style, roll up the bacon/sausage over the kielbasa. After the first roll, place cheddar cheese slices and spread them on the ground sausage. Lay out a layer of red hots (a southern delicasy) and complete the roll. Wrap in aluminum foil and refrigerate for a couple of hours so that the whole concoction binds well. Grill at 325 for about two/three hours, until internal temp is about 165-170. Making two of those.

@  brian stark : (27 Nov 2015 - 18:17)

wii games were going to 10 bucks a pop at the Wally World I was at.

@  Canada Mets Fan : (27 Nov 2015 - 17:23)

brian, what do you serve at the big cookout? If you don't mind me asking.

@  Canada Mets Fan : (27 Nov 2015 - 17:21)

$348??? Sounds like a steal. I should have asked you to pick up some wii u games for my son and mail up to me!!

@  brian stark : (27 Nov 2015 - 13:28)

The King is a BEAST. Henrik the Great Stonewall.

@  brian stark : (27 Nov 2015 - 13:14)

I actually had to go to Wal Mart for some stuff for the big cookout I'm having tomorrow. I usually stay away from the Black Friday madness, and dreaded the trip. Got there, and surprisingly, there were no more folks there than on a normal Friday. Tons of stuff still on the shelf. I ended up getting a 55" tv for $348, and several PS4 games for 10 bucks each. Shocked. Absolutely shocked.

@  mjjm367 : (27 Nov 2015 - 10:03)

Would not brave the Black Friday nonsense for free stuff. Taking my niece to the Houston Zoo for her birthday, like we do every year.

@  Canada Mets Fan : (27 Nov 2015 - 09:04)

Happy post Thanksgiving to the US forum members. Lots of turkey hangovers? Anyone braving the Black Friday madness??

@  Drucifer : (26 Nov 2015 - 14:53)

My day has already been ruin by a political event. So I wont go into details, except to say it disgust me.

@  Drucifer : (26 Nov 2015 - 14:50)


@  Canada Mets Fan : (25 Nov 2015 - 18:18)

Big game at MSG, Fang.

100 days means snow season is over and I have to pack my snowboard back into storage - not ready for that yet as I haven't even made the switch with the golf clubs yet

@  Drucifer : (25 Nov 2015 - 14:06)

Hey when your my age, a 100 days is extremely fast. As it about the same time period as my routine lab work.

@  Drucifer : (25 Nov 2015 - 14:03)

I see a few bench players switched teams since I last checked. I wonder if MFO thinks the ;mets; should have been involved in any of those move instead. As he's a firm believer in that the team must always be doing something in order to prove to fans they're working.

@  Drucifer : (25 Nov 2015 - 13:56)


@  Drucifer : (25 Nov 2015 - 03:12)


@  METS FANG : (24 Nov 2015 - 18:48)

that sounds closer than it is

@  brian stark : (24 Nov 2015 - 18:28)

Less than 100 days until the first game!

@  Drucifer : (24 Nov 2015 - 17:41)

Mets release Grapefruit League schedule http://es.pn/1R5lkPL

@  Drucifer : (24 Nov 2015 - 17:38)

EARLY WARNING: Is everyone ready for another round of Mets failure to sign a significant player with the signing of Stolmy Pimentel to minor league deal w/ST invite by MFO?

@  METS FANG : (24 Nov 2015 - 12:21)

Basketball is a distant distant distant #4 (like if the Knicks won, I'd be marginally more happy than another team, but I couldn't name 3 starters)

@  METS FANG : (24 Nov 2015 - 12:20)

Football/Baseball are 1/1A

@  Canada Mets Fan : (24 Nov 2015 - 12:11)

Haha, no worry. Football is your 2nd sport? The NFL games this year, as a whole, have not been good. Maybe 8 'good' teams in the league this season??

@  METS FANG : (24 Nov 2015 - 12:08)

yea - I'll be honest - Hockey is a distant #3 sport for me. I don't follow even close to your level. I know the rangers and the stars (not dallas, but gifted players :p)

@  Canada Mets Fan : (24 Nov 2015 - 12:02)

Fang, just another reason to love hockey!

@  METS FANG : (24 Nov 2015 - 11:20)

Of course Conference championships 3 of 4 years (+ 1 of which in the Cup finals) does make a hot ticket even hotter. The one save grace is hockey is more of a niche market so you get less bandwagon

@  METS FANG : (24 Nov 2015 - 11:17)

Gotta side with Dru here. Even Knicks are a hot ticket, and they've been terrible for the better part of 15 years.

@  Drucifer : (24 Nov 2015 - 00:37)

Rangers games been sold out for decades.

@  Canada Mets Fan : (23 Nov 2015 - 21:28)

Are the Rangers a hot ticket in NYC?

@  Canada Mets Fan : (23 Nov 2015 - 21:27)

But it shows the resiliency of the Rangers. The Preds are a solid team with good D and a great goalie, but little offense.

@  Canada Mets Fan : (23 Nov 2015 - 21:25)

If you're the Preds it's one of those games where you do everything but score, or win!

@  METS FANG : (23 Nov 2015 - 21:23)

CMF - I will say this - 3 goals on 14 shots, in a game they've been otherwise dominated in for the first 2 periods - kinda crazy...

@  METS FANG : (23 Nov 2015 - 20:26)

I guess, not "VERY" because they are winning and split the first two. But how long can you survive like that?

@  METS FANG : (23 Nov 2015 - 20:25)

They're looking sloppy for the third straight game, very frustrating

@  Canada Mets Fan : (23 Nov 2015 - 20:02)

Fang, I've got Preds-Rangers. Not the Rangers' best period but when your goalie is your best player, you can get away with a few penalties.

@  Drucifer : (23 Nov 2015 - 14:55)

Looks like this with be another very slow week for :MetsHotStove:

@  Canada Mets Fan : (23 Nov 2015 - 10:16)

That D is probably the best corps in the NHL. If Boyle ever rediscovers his game, look out.

@  METS FANG : (23 Nov 2015 - 09:41)

but yes, King Henrik is a BEAST and having him has really really really helped as well :)

@  METS FANG : (23 Nov 2015 - 09:40)

What has also helped has been that they have trailed so few times this season that they can sit back and clog up the neutral and defensive zones
