    And I enjoyed Barry Lyndon as well The Shining. I don't think he was overrated at all.

    I JB U R  doing a heck of a job in this thread n Response to Re: Thoughts on beer in clubhouse AGAIN : redsoxdirtdog not sure if I agree, but I get it maybe we give breaks to those who work out  shouldn't that fat smoker pay less social security tax  than the rest

    Separate programs.  My company pays for your health benefits.  You're on your on for SS.

    Let me tell you a story.

    We had a really fat guy in CA.  CA basically rubber stamps on worker issue.  It's part of why they are bankrupt.  So I have a little LOL at them for bad karme.  Anyway, our fat guy worked on a factory floor in a walking around position.  But factory floors are really hard, and this guys knees give out.  Cost us $300k+.  CA couldn't care less that most of this was his fault.

    Had two IT people that had lapband surgery.

    We had a guy in CT that I knew that smoked and spent a fair amount of his time at the casino.  Guess who had a heart attack?

    There is a reason why most of the country is unhealthy.  It's because, like I said earlier, there is no penalty for unhealthiness.

    I understand both sides of the discussion, but once upon a time, societal pressures kept people in line.  You studied because you didn't want to be called stupid.  You made some sort of effort to stay in shape because you didn't want the other kids to call you fat.

    It's like we're all supposed to hold hands, sing kumbayah, and pretend we're all perfect.

    Beat writers probably figured players having a couple beers after a game is no big deal -- which is correct. _________________________________ Curt Schilling Deadbeat Fraud Clown

    There isn't, but that's not how these guys think.  They'll run stories on players drinking non-alcoholic beverages.

    The Sox are 3 gams over 500 on the road and 5 games under 500 at Fenway. So obviously, beer in the clubhouse isn't the issue.

    In Response to Re: Thoughts on beer in clubhouse AGAIN : Stanley Kubrick is by far the most overrated director of all time...with the exception of dr strangelove (and maybe the shining) his movies are unbearable, weird, and boring...2001 is the worst....full metal jacket lost steam after boot camp scenes, and Eyes Wide Shut may be the most meaningless film in the last 30 years...Spartacus was good but not great compared to other epics of the period...

    Spartucus was great.  Strangelove was very good.  2001 was butchered, could've been better.  I didn't really get the Shining.

    Maybe that is the issue.  Maybe we just don't like playing at home anymore.

    I appreciate Joe and others for clearing up this issue. Had their been an iron clad prohibition against all clubhouse drinking, and ANY player violated it without consequance, I'd have probably had a stroke. I do think players could certainly wait to have their after work beverages until they've actually left the work site, like the rest of us do, but I'm just happy to hear no overt player defiance was at work here. I don't care if the manager we hire next is William Hung of American Idol "She Bang" fame, any defiant player opposing him should be fined heavily and publicly excoriated. Rebellion is for children, not professional organizations.

    In Response to Re: Thoughts on beer in clubhouse AGAIN : Oh man you hit my ANGER Spot!  ever noticed smokers can be 15 feet away from you, 30 feet, and they puff away enjoying their paper, snack, conversatiuon on the phone etc.,  not a care in the world. Meanwhile their stench flows over onto your face, clothes, and into your lungs. Scourge.

    While I understand that there are plenty of inconsiderate smokers, most try to do so without subjecting everyone else to their habit.

    Some people love to go out of their way to get offended!  I can't stand it when men or women use body sprays, perfume, or colognes.  It's absolutely disgusting!  Should it be outlawed?  Please! 

    Yes!  The law can limit where people can smoke in public places, but let's not get crazy about it.  To the busy bodies who get so worked up over what other people do, get a life.  Stop trying to take offense!  It's offensive.  :)

    As to he health risks of getting a whiff of a little smoke?  Cut the s hit!  You get a 1000 times more fumes hailing a cab!  GET A LIFE! The tree hugger driving by me in his old VW wagon spouts more fumes in one day than I have in my entire life. They are much more obtrusive too! The rich jet setting Liberal Dem. flying here & there every week has a far bigger "carbon footprint" than every smoker on earth!Try getting some perspective!

    Sometimes a few drinks is good now and then.

    After a workout - light beer is much better for you.

    Of course, Lackey doesn't work out....

    ""Do you mind if I smoke? No, do you mind if I fa-rt?" I have seen it attributed to both George Carlin (In the early 70s) and to Steve Martin (In the late 70s) Who said it first?
