I'm starting to believe the GOP might play diplomacy. If I've learned anything in this world of dot grabbing bastards, it's that the only way to look ethical is to make someone else look unethical.
SPEAKING OF SNAKE OIL
In our bonus bar game, Italy (yours truly) slithered its way to a 16-dot board top and the top of the league/brawl standings. For recaps and insight from The Jungle Book, click here. Also click to see Jim amusingly guilt himself into updating the standings. Thanks, Jim.
NEW KIDS THROWIN' DOWN IN UPTOWN
Rookie of the Year front-runner and South Carolina's second favorite son (couldn't bump you ahead of Colbert) Mick Johnson is hosting this Saturday at 11 in Uptown. The board currently features 3 first timers, one rookie, and three guys in their second season of WCW play. Can we push for 2? If not, come on by, hang out, and help coach a young weasel! Sign up here.
Hit the jump for next week bar game details, Wise Old Weasel updates, and your usual and customary pupptricide shaming.
I'LL LET YOU HAVE THE FIRST PUNCH
The bar room brawl surges into 2017 next Wednesday at the Red Lion. We've got six, so we need at least one, but would prefer 8. Sign up here.
WORDS FROM THE WISE
In continuing to expand our Wise Old Weasel series, I've begun reaching out to people I've shared boards with at tournaments and so forth. Jay Heumann is going to share some thoughts on the long term AT, a concept that has confounded Weasels, later this week. Wise Old Weasel: Russia was scheduled for December, but as is tradition, is running a little late and should be up soon. Part of that is admittedly because I suck at playing Russia.
2016. Brutal year. All the celebrities died. That was out of your control. But all the puppies died AND IT WAS YOUR FAULT. But it's okay, 2017 can be a better year! Pay your dues. Save the puppies. Save the dream.
