Tailgate Wiki

Posted by Matt Clapp | 4/27/2010 02:45:00 PM | , , , ,

If you're a fan of this site, I'd guess you're also a big fan of beer, food, and sports. If you like all three of those things, you probably are also a big fan of tailgating. If so, you'll really like a new site from our good buddy Dave Lamm of TailgatingIdeas.Com, called "Tailgate Wiki". Here's Dave's explanation of what Tailgate Wiki is all about:

Basically Tailgatewiki.com is designed loosely on the wikipedia
concept that anyone with internet access is considered an expert in
the field and can contribute their personal knowledge in an online
arena. Wikipedia covers all areas whereas Tailgate Wiki is focusing on
tailgating and improving the game day atmosphere. Because many fans
follow their team when they play on the road, Tailgate Wiki will serve
as a resource for those fans to understand what to expect when they
get there. Kind of like having a friend in every city, at every
stadium, giving you the inside scoop on the best places to park, what
things are not allowed in the parking lot, (i.e. Qualcomm Stadium bans
glass bottles yet there are no signs posted at the gates) and which
sections of the parking lot tend to party more and which sections are
more family friendly. Home fans will learn something about their own
stadium that they may not have known before this site was started.

The site went live on Friday and there are a few minor bugs to work
out as with any new launch. College baseball and horse racing will be
added within the week so as to complete the categories that sports
fans tailgate the most. But all in all, this is going to be a valuable
resource of information for the sports fan in general whether they
just come to the game or come to tailgate.

The main homepage is http://www.tailgatewiki.com/. As a season ticket
holder to the Chargers since 2004, I have done my fair share of
tailgating at Qualcomm Stadium. I took it upon myself to fill out the
Chargers page and I am sure there is more info that can be added by
people who tailgate in different sections or enter via a different
gate. As an example of the type of information we are seeking from
those users and contributors, please check out the Chargers page as an
example. http://www.tailgatewiki.com/view.cfm/NFL%20Football/San%20Diego%20Chargers

Since the website was launched on Friday, some sections are completely
bare. Other sections have already been updated with some really good
info. I would encourage you to contribute your knowledge on stadiums
and venues you frequent. Also, if you have a website or a blog that
this type of an informational resource might be of interest to your
visitors, I would encourage you to make a mention of it. Lastly, if
you are a message board or forum member of a college or pro sports
team, I am sure those fans would enjoy knowing about and contributing
to Tailgate Wiki too.
Very cool stuff, so make sure to check it out, and even help out with the tailgating information if you can.

Milwaukee Brewers catcher Gregg Zaun looked like the character Rube Baker in Major League II last night against the Pittsburgh Pirates with his inability to throw the ball back to the pitcher. The veteran catcher missed pitcher Yovani Gallardo three straight times on his return throws after the pitches:

With the recent news that season two of HBO's Eastbound & Down will be set in Mexico, I decided to post one of my favorite clips from season one. Here we have the main character, Kenny Powers(Danny McBride), meeting a car dealership owner, Ashley Schaeffer(Will Ferrell). Powers is a former professional baseball player looking to make some cash, so he walks into the dealership to offer to do a meet and greet deal with customers, which he'd get paid for. This is their conversation(NSFW due to language):

If you're striking out, you're batting. If you're throwing a curve, you're pitching. I appreciate their effort in getting some clever baseball terminology in there, but when it doesn't make sense... FAIL. Oh, and if you have Dish Network, that's a bit of a fail on your part as well.

Usually when thigh and boobs are involved, we're all about it. But this is just bad...

One of my favorite television shows, Flight of the Conchords, is unfortunately over after two seasons. The show was a fictional comedy based on the real band Flight of the Conchords, featuring Bret McKenzie and Jemaine Clement. The seriies hilariously showed their struggles to be a successful band in America, after coming over from New Zealand.

Probably my favorite part of the show involved the interactions between the band and their band manager Murray Hewitt, played by Australian comedian Rhys Darby. Here's a compilation of the band meetings between Murray and the band:

I'm thrilled to pass along the news that my favorite show on television, Curb Your Enthusiasm, will be returning for an eighth season on HBO:

HBO has ordered an eighth season of Larry David's "Curb Your Enthusiasm."

The network renewed the series for its standard 10 episodes, which will debut next year.

“After much soul searching – and by the way, it was nowhere to be found – I have decided to do another season of 'Curb,' ” creator David said. “I look forward to the end of shooting, when I can once again resume the hunt for my elusive soul. I know it’s here somewhere or perhaps in the rugged mountainous regions of Pakistan.”

It was up in the air whether or not the incredibly hilarious series was done, so I'm feeling prettyyyyyyyyy, prettyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy, pretty good about this. It just sucks we have to wait until next year to watch it.

Wait, What? Now 7-Eleven's Selling Video Games?

Posted by Matt Clapp | 4/19/2010 09:00:00 PM | , ,

Two hours ago, I wrote about 7-Eleven launching their own beer called "Game Day". That in itself was an interesting surprise to me, and then I randomly see this about them:

The mammoth retail company today that 3,000 of its 8,200 stores in North America now stock used video games in a new section called the "Gamers Factory," and around 100 new stores are planned to add the section every week through at least the end of the year.

7-Eleven began dabbling in the video game market at the end of 2008, with select locations partaking in the retail firestorms of games like God of War III and Madden 2010. Over the last year, more franchise owners have started stocking video games, and late last year the company began setting up shelf space for budget games at a few hundred stores.

The new expansion of video games includes used PS3, Xbox 360, Wii, DS, and PSP games at less than $20. 7-Eleven gets its product from used game company Game Trading Technologies.

So today we've learned of 7-Eleven selling their own cheap beer, and selling video games. Weird, wild stuff.

Add in that it's open 24 hours with food, drinks, cigarettes, condoms, and much more for sale, and you have pretty much everything people in their 20-somethings are looking for late at night. Well, they don't provide thigh, so I guess not everything.

Krystal Forscutt had a terrific run to the the championship game at the 2009 Thighnal Four, before being defeated by Keeley Hazell. While I think Keeley's got quite a thigh game herself, I feel Forscutt was the better player in this game.

What makes Forscutt's loss even more upsetting, is the fact that she recently retired from modeling. That means we won't be seeing many pictures of her half-naked anymore, unless the paparazzi is able to come through for us on occasion. Until then, we're going to just have to enjoy what she's shown us in the past. In this video over ten minutes long, we see what Krystal can bring to the table:

7-Eleven Launching Their Own Beer. No, Seriously.

Posted by Matt Clapp | 4/19/2010 06:58:00 PM | , , ,


7-Eleven, the Texas-based convenience store powerhouse, is launching their own beer to sell. It's called "Game Day", which will be available in "Light" and "Ice" as we see with beers such as Budweiser, and they're referring to it as a "Premium Lager Beer":

7-Eleven Inc. is diving into the highly competitive beer market with the launch of Game Day, a new store-brand premium lager beer, the Dallas-based convenience store giant said Monday.

The beer, which is expected to pour into 4,200 7-Eleven stores in 17 states, including Texas, will be positioned as a “premium lager beer at a below-premium price,” Dan Skinner, 7-Eleven’s category manager for alcohol beverages, said in a statement.



The new brew will be available in two varieties – Light and Ice – and two package sizes – 24-ounce singles and a 12-pack of 12-ounce cans. Suggested retail price is between $6.99 and $8.99 for a 12-pack, and $1.49 and $1.89 for a single. Prices nationwide will vary based on distribution costs and state and local alcohol beverage taxes.

This is just really weird to me, but I'm all about more beer at a cheap price being available out there. I'm going to go out on a limb and predict this beer isn't anything to write home, but if you can tolerate the Pabst Blue Ribbon and Busch beers of the world, you might have yourself a new selection.

If I can get my hands on it(it's only available in 17 states as the above excerpt says), maybe we'll have a review for you in the near future. Regardless, I can promise you I won't be trying their "Ice" version.
