Deadspin: 36 Cheap American Beers, Ranked

Recommended Posts

29. National Bohemian. As one of the few Americans who's never seen The Wire or flashed my tits at the Preakness, I'm largely shut out of the Baltimore conversation, but I HAVE had a Natty Bo, which qualifies me to say, Sure, I get it, hometown pride is nice sometimes. But you do know there are other beers, right?

Well, he does admit to being out of the conversation, so he wouldn't get the concept of Baltimore Ironic Bohemia, or the Baltimore Hipster.

I wasn't judging. I haven't had a Natty Bo since I was about 12. Don't recall much about it.

Well, it really isn't the greatest. What I was pointing out was that he answered his last question with his own previous admission.

Had my first Boh soon after they started serving it the Yard again. It was better than I expected. :) It's not bad.

Dress it up as a "cocktail"....

I do like RR, however, fat man smell or not....beats Coors Lite! 'gansett and Lone Star aren't that bad.

Twelve?

Yes. My sister was 3.5 years (4 grades) older then me and most of my friends were three years (three grades) older then me. I had my first cigarette at 10 and my summer vacations from 11-13 would include drinking cheap beer and whatever liqueur we could procure.

What's funny is that around here, hipsters snub Narragansett in favor of PBR.

Worst beer I ever tasted was Iron City. My first year in college - U of M at College Park - four of us jumped in a car and headed down Rt. 1 to DC, where the drinking age was 18 and you could buy all the 3.2% alcohol beer you could handle. We bought a case of Iron City for $2.98....and we all gagged on the first swallow. We were sitting at a red light and 3 guys were standing on the corner. We asked them if they wanted some beer and handed them the case. The light changed and we drove off leaving 3 stunned guys holding a case of beer.

    • You can believe what you want. I do think that it is more than an arms length relationship. I've been around some of the reporters indeed some who have moved on and I never heard too much about Roch sugar coating things. I have seen that with some folks associated with MASN though. Real journalism requires at least an attempt at integrity.  Obviously as someone who has been covering one team so so very long there is a lean towards the polyannic.  If you are looking for the big expose to expose the horrors of all things Angelosian, he's not your guy. Pick Ken or Nester for that crap. Billionaires are not great people. We get it.  Back to the player subject here.   
    • I've never agreed being slow about promoting/keeping guys down that are already on the 40 man. You are burning option years w/o knowing how much work they need to do to adjust to the majors. You end up putting yourself in a out of options crapshoot a few years down the line with talented, but unfinished players. We know why they do it, but in a pure trying to build the best team I don't find it optimal in any way. It's a business thing, not building a better team thing.  backlogging non 40 man players into the rule 5 pool will happen regardless in a re-build. Though slow playing doesn't really help either. (It can disguise players and keep them from being picked if they are still in A ball)
    • Absolutely.  Even if they just guarantee you a one-year deal at $1M you might as well take it.  You just have to be willing to adapt to the Japanese culture, baseball and otherwise.  Not everyone does. Matt Stairs was in professional baseball for 20+ years, his time in Japan was 60 games of a .712 OPS when he was 27.  
    • And you know this how? I’m just trying to get clarification. I cannot recall a time when he was overly critical about the organization or a move that they made.   It’s just common sense that you don’t bite the hand that feeds you. That conflict moved needle from writing what he wants IMO  
    • I heard the clips on the radio this morning. I’m fine with the process and it seems like the deal progressed fairly quick. I would have been interested in the question of why quantity over quality. Obviously they didn’t play the whole show so maybe it was asked.    I don’t mind the deal as much as some here. But I would have preferred a player less with a more prestigious main player. But it’s mainly stating a preference for conversation as I really think it was a decent trade.
    • I think this would be a good signing. I think it's important to see what we've got (pitching wise) and the best way to do that is to back them up with above-average defenders behind him.  If we're not concerned about winning, let's try it.
    • Have no idea about the other player. Just know about Iglesias . Roch writes what he wants. He's as independent as Connolly or Trezza.  You write bad stuff too much, you lose access. The way of the world.
