Unfortunately, I didn’t win Powerball Saturday night.  Some lucky white trash bastard who purchased a ticket along with two stale hot dogs and a six pack of Busch is probably grinning through all three teeth right now.  Needless to say, I had already started my shopping list.  I wouldn’t quit my job and go through my winnings like condoms at a brothel but I’d definitely “invest” in a car that makes me drool!  Thus begins my 15 awesome cars in 15 days.  And I don’t care if you follow this blog for the beer, not the cars, there’s no way you can’t get excited checking these out.  They’re not all street legal, they’re not all mass produced, some are old and some are new, but they’re all kick ass fast.  So starting with one I’ve mentioned here before and the one that would most require a winning lottery ticket to purchase: [..]

LT has agreed to play for the NY Jets just 2 months after the Jets ended the Chargers season in a 17-14 game to advance to the AFC Title game.  It was the surprise upset of the playoffs, and his season wasn’t as productive as in years past but after 9 years in the blue and gold, it’ll be sad to see him representing another team.  The Jets released Thomas Jones (looking for $5.8M) then signed LT to a 2 year ($5.2M plus another half a mil in incentives) contract and though both have had great years in the past, Jones had twice as many yards (1402 versus 730) on 108 more carries as LT last year.   At least LT may have a little more support with blocking than he has had in San Diego.  As long as he stays healthy, he should be more productive than last year.  Since LT is not just a great player but a wonderful role model, something so rare to find in the NFL, I wish him all the luck in the world.  And hopefully he just “forgets” how good he is next time he’s up against the Bolts!

Ithaca Le Bleu at Teresa’s Next Door: I love, love, love this beer.  It’s great both on tap (BCWC at Iron Hill) or from the bottle like it was served here. Le Bleu is tart and funky and wild like an almost ripe blueberry picked during a hiking trek in Maine. They also had Groundbreak Saison, White Gold, Cold Front, and Flower Power among others.

Same night, still getting funkdafied. Union Jack’s Manatawny was serving up Jolly Pumpkin Oro de Calabaza (8% golden ale with wild yeast, spicy and a little peppery) and Bam Biere (farmhouse session beer, dry-hopped and spicy), both delicious.

And finally, Saturday at TJ’s for their cask event. [bad beer joke] What are all these firkin people doing here? [/joke]
