Time to Sink Navy

Beer #280 Oatmeal Stout / Telegraph Brewing Company, Santa Barbara, CA

Another fall Saturday, another day spent cheering on PSU.  Let's hope that they keep getting better and get that first win of the season against Navy today.  Once that monkey is off their backs, they'll be just fine.

Beer for the day actually comes from the West Coast, although I didn't get to sample it when we were out there in June.  It's the Oatmeal Stout from Telegraph Brewing.  No, I don't usually reach for stouts when I order, but this was on draft at TJ's, and we're getting to the point where I can't pass up new breweries, regardless of what they're making.  This beer has a black hue with a thin tan ring.  The aroma is of toasted malt, and the flavor has a touch of cocoa and sweetness to balance out the toasted malt flavor.  Not a bad beer by any stretch, just not something I typically drink.

Thing to Think About Today:
The last football film in our series is the legendary Remember the Titans, the story of forced integration in a Virginia high school and the impact to their football team and fans.  Denzel Washington is at his best as Coach Boone, pulling his team together to work first as teammates, and then as friends.  Huge cast of stars in this film, all who do a great job playing their roles.  If you don't get goosebumps watching this film, you may not be alive.

"We will be PERFECT in every aspect of the game."
