I actually drink several beers, it depends on the occasion. If I'm going to drink more than a few, I drink Bud Light because it's inexpensive.

I also drink Peroni (Italian), Sapporro (Japanese), both of which are in the fridge at this time. I drink Harp (Irish), Stella (Belgium) and Amstel (Netherlands).

I also found out that Guinness and Heineken taste much better in their home countries than they do here.

Stella is my soccer beer. When I was in Ireland and attended the Gaelic Football Championships, I drank Carlsberg.

In Japan I drank Kirin. It's much better and a different style of beer than you can get here in the States. I went to make a beer run while in Japan and I couldn't read the cans. Everything was in Japanese. I didn't know which brand to purchase, so I purchased one of everything (about 20 brands) and I went back to the hotel for a beer judging contest. I took notes and gave each beer a ranking as I drank them.

I stopped at a nice outdoor cafe in the botantical gardens, located in the center of Tokyo. They didn't have anyone there who spoke English. I didn't know how to order anything in Japanese, so for lunch, I ordered the only thing I understood and told the young lady ... Sapporro. That was my lunch. Ha!

Yeah, I know, I'm pretty pitiful.

At least I'm not a Clemson fan. I'm doing one thing right anyway.

I pick the Diamondbacks to win the NL West.

The LA California Angels of Anehiem will win it all in 2012, if healthy. Just look at their lineup.

Toronto will surprise in the AL and make the post season.

Colorado and Washington (will Harper arrive?) are on the rise in the NL.

My Oakland A's will be fun with super studly Cespedes from Cuba, and speed on the bases leadoff thru cleanup. .500 would exceed Las Vegas over/under by about 7 games. Almost all new starting pitching; a mystery. We still don't know who our numero uno first and third baseman will be.

JMHO, will visit it again July-ish.

I feel bad for Yankee fans, Rays had to go and beat them in the bottom of the ninth.

Wait, are you saying it's baseball season already? And the Yankees played who?

On a serious note, I have no worries Mariano will be Mariano. The team that should really be worried is the Red Sox with Alfredo Aceves.

Strasburg was impressive in the Nats opener. They seem like a really fun team to root for this year. The Mets, OTOH, because of their owner, you have to force yourself to embrace.

One down, 161 games to go.

BTW, you do know that when Kentucky wins March Madness the odds are astronomically in favor of the Yankees also winning. I'm too lazy to document that at the moment, but trust me on that.
