Drink of the Week for "The Rivalry"?

Thought I'd try something interesting here. I'd like to hear your nominations for "LFN's Drink of the Week" for "The Rivalry" (or Lehigh/Lafayette, for you newcomers here). What drink sums up this year's game in Easton? Yuengling? Any variety of wine? Perhaps a drink including Jagermeister?

After the Bucknell game, I'll put up a poll with everyone's favorites, and you, the readers, will decide what the drink will be! And the winning drink will be posted in my preview of the game next Thursday,

Leave a comment on this post with your nomination below!

Chuck,

For starters, you need to stop touting Yuengling like its a good beer. Despite it being a relatively local product and one of the Yuengling daughters being an LU alum, Yuengling should not be considered the Lehigh beer of choice.

Ok, now that I've finally gotten that one off my chest after all these years, I'll put forward the Hot Chocalate with Rumpelminze drink. L-L is usually cold and tailgating begins early, so you need something to warm you up and this does the trick. This should be followed by Hacker-Pschorr Oktoberfest beer. (Yes, I know it's no longer Oktoberfest, but this fits the bill by being a great beer to drink in cold, but not yet winter temps)

And what's wrong with Yuengling Mr Snob? We of the Great Unwashed prefer it to swill like Bud, PBR or Miller. We don't need no stinkin' foreign beer to get tanked-up. Besides, what difference does it make when all of our drinks will be diluted by our tears?

I think a "Nasty Jack" is in order, because it has been a nasty season.

In a shot glass, mix:
1 part Jack Daniels
1 part Yukon Jack
1 part Apple Jack


Yes, it lives up to its name, but 8 or 12 of these and you should forget about this season.

Since you asked, anonymous, I'll tell you what is wrong with Yuengling. First it uses corn in place of malt, which weakens the flavor and is a cost-cutting measure (Bud does the same thing). It also has high-levels of DMS or dimethyl sulfide, which producess a corn-like aroma and flavor and is estery. None of these are qualities of good beer.

My previous comment had nothing to do with the Great Unwashed or hoi-polloi.

Lastly, I'm more optimistic this year than the past couple that our tears will be ones of joy than sorrow on Nov. 22nd.

I will second the Hot Chocolate with Rumpleminze nomination. Sounds perfect for a cold day in Easton.

Friday Water Cooler: Emma Watson, And Harvard Football

(Photo courtesy switched.com) I'm sure this won't be appreciated by the latest famous freshman to attend an Ivy League school. No, no, I'm not talking about Brooke Shields, I'm talking about Emma Watson, the actress who is best known for her turn as Hermione Granger in the Harry Potter movies. We always knew there was something, well, different about kids who went to Harvard - a bit of an upturned nose, perhaps, annoying arrogance, or maybe even some Brahmin-ness while we're at it. Turns out, though, that some students were up to something more sinister: stalking Ms. Brown University at the Harvard/Brown game last weekend, as reported by the New York Post : Page Six reported on Tuesday that the "Harry Potter" starlet and Brown University freshman looked "quite shaken" on Saturday as Harvard beat Brown 24-21 in Cambridge. Watson was reportedly flanked by security guards to protect her from gawkers. But her discomfort was actually the result

Assuming the Ivy Is Cancelling Out Of Conference Games, Here's How Patriot League Can Have 9 Game Season

The Patriot League could very well be in a huge bind assuming the Ivy League goes forward with their college football restart plans. According to Mark Blaudschun of TMG Sports, the Ivy League is considering two plans for their 2020 college football season - neither of which allow for any out of conference games. 13 out-of-conference games involving Patriot League teams would be on the chopping block, and when you add to it the Patriot League presidents' guidance to not fly to games , every single member of the Patriot League is affected.  If you add to that the fact that the opening of the college football season is going to at best start in late September (yes, you read that correctly), the Patriot League would count as one of the most deeply affected by Covid-19-influenced delays and decisions in the entire college football landscape. It is a bind to be sure - but not one that should see the Patriot League cancel the 2020 football season. If we start with the assumption that t

How The Ivy League Is Able To Break the NCAA's Scholarship Limits and Still Consider Themselves FCS

By now you've seen the results.  In 2018, the Ivy League has taken the FCS by storm. Perhaps it was Penn's 30-10 defeat of Lehigh a couple of weeks ago .  Or maybe it was Princeton's 50-9 drubbing of another team that made the FCS Playoffs last year, Monmouth.  Or maybe it was Yale's shockingly dominant 35-14 win over nationally-ranked Maine last weekend. The Ivy League has gone an astounding 12-4 so far in out-of-conference play, many of those wins coming against the Patriot League. But it's not just against the Patriot League where the Ivy League has excelled.  Every Ivy League school has at least one out-of-conference victory, which is remarkable since it is only three games into their football season.  The four losses - Rhode Island over Harvard, Holy Cross over Yale, Delaware over Cornell, and Cal Poly over Brown - were either close losses that could have gone either way or expected blowouts of teams picked to be at the bottom of the Ivy League.
