Ladies and gentlemen, welcome back into another Happy Hour. I seriously enjoyed watching the first group play games for EURO 2012 qualifying. Again if those predictions hold up, I need to win some type of award. I hope you are just as excited as I am for the return of the EPL after the international break.
A quick Faroe Islands Euro qualifying update: In a previous post, I had promised to buy the entire population of the Faroe Islands a beer if they managed to concede 12 goals or less during group play. After playing 3 matches, they have 10 goals against. In the interest of competition, I will up the goals allowed total to 14 for the remaining two games of the first pod . Get your shit together Faroe Islands, you know you want some PBR.
In other news, FIFA World Cup inspectors have been traveling (uncomfortably, in some places) around the US all week in order to evaluate our potential to host the 2018 or 2022 World Cup. All signs have pointed to Europe (probably England) being awarded the 2018 World Cup. It appears that we are fighting to host the 2022
competition. The US is competing with Qatar, Australia, South Korea and Japan to hold the tournament in 2022. In this bloggers opinion, the only real competition here is from Australia. I do not see FIFA awarding the World Cup to Qatar after the problems filling stadiums in South Africa, nor will they give the games right back to an Asian nation after South Korea and Japan dual hosted in 2002. Furthermore, no nation has been able to sell more tickets, or make more cash during a World Cup than the United States in 1994. I fully expect to break those attendance records the second time around with increases in stadium size all over the country. The thought of having a talented USMNT squad playing on home soil makes me big in my pants. Austriala will hold the World Cup sometime soon, but hopefully not 2022. The vote goes down December 2nd, stay tuned.
It’s Time to change the subject. I have taken some shit lately about not writing about PBR as much as I have in the past. For the record, I have received the hate mail, and here is my response. The other night, my roommate T-Bone and I were discussing what an occasional pain the in ass it can be to have a girlfriend. Sometimes, you just want to pound PBR tall boys, play poker, and tell dirty jokes. This discussion led to the following list. Without further adieu may I present to you…
30 Reasons PBR is better than a Girlfriend
1)PBR is always in the mood
to party, it never has a “headache”
2) An 18 pack of PBR is cheaper than dinner for two, and can be be more fun.
3) PBR never makes your take out the trash.
4) PBR never makes your pick up the kids from soccer practice.
5) PBR doesn’t make you watch “Dancing with the Stars” when a meaningful football game is on.
6) PBR never “gets a visit from Aunt Flow.”
7) PBR gets you drunk. Girlfriends won’t, save special occasions, then they hold it over your head for weeks, if not years.

To be clear, I am not as much of a misogynist as I seem. If there are ladies out there who don’t think this list is just a little bit funny, you’re obviously not the type of girl I am looking to marry. That said, maybe
you should write a post about how your Apple Martini is better than a boyfriend.
I hope you enjoyed the list. T-Bone and I certainly had one hell of a time writing it. In other breaking news, I Puck will be joining the Twitter community. I am just trying to decide on a kick ass name. I am thinking PuckLovesPBR. If you have any ideas, or other reasons that PBR is better than a girlfriend please feel free to comment below. Time for some words of wisdom
