Strat and Beverage choices/experiences
Permalink  
 


I must admit that Strat in the evenings will probably have an adult beverage as part of the plan. I'm a computer guy so there is no chance of card damage. I like a good craft beer with the game. I mix the brand constantly. This is not the time for a Bud Light and such. I may also break out the scotch. I'll drink drink single malt or blended. I have Johnnie Walker Green Label on hand right now. I'm pretty sure my consumption is low enough not to goof up managing the game. wink

AM Strat will 100% of the time include coffee. My 1996 Todd Hundley did pay a price for that. Without warning many years ago a friend's sibling got green popsicle on my 1984 Kirk Gibson...ugh. You can still see some of that green on the card.

I never eat at the Strat table or computer.

Anybody care to shar their stories?

 Caffeine in the evenings will mess my sleep up. In high school the Strat bunch would get Mountain Dew. I wouldnt fall asleep until 3-4 AM.

Coffee in the morning/afternoon (until I drain my travel mug).

Then, it's hot tea in the colder months, iced tea in the warmer months.  Fresh brewed, no canned or bottled stuff.  Usually lemon, sometimes raspberry.  A local company called Market Spice (they're in the Pike Place Market) makes a delicious Cinnamon and Orange Spice blend that I drink hot.

No alcohol.  I'm a little off-kilter, as it is.  I don't need any help. hmm

My favorite game-time snack is Whoppers Malted Milk Balls.  Nice, neat, no mess.

Coffee in the morning for sure. Night time can be a variety. I'll drink beer, diet pepsi, iced tea, or flavored water, depending what I feel like

A water or soda at the seventh inning stretch is about as creative as I get.

Since I can only play after the wife and kids have gone to bed around 9ish, I try to avoid the caffeine. If I'm drinking anything at all it will usually be a glass of red wine (don't worry I keep the wine on a separate table away from the cards). Sometimes I'll have a beer, sometimes a Gatorade (not to further immerse into the game, I just like some of the flavors), and once in a blue moon I'll have a small glass of bourbon on the rocks.

In the morning, I usually have a cup of coffee.

In the evening, it is either water or iced tea. Very rarely, I will have a beer, wine or bourbon (usually on the rocks) while playing.

More power to those of you who can strategize on alcohol. I had a hard cider before one of my games and didn't know who was up half the time. I would prefer a mug of black tea with milk or perhaps an ice coffee.

I brew a pot of coffee and drink that until gone then move on to Propel water (orange) or soda (Squirt).

A chocolate drink that you have to buy at an Asian grocery store called Milo. Mix with hot water. I do not have to worry about cards (computer) but I have an old 1956 Al Smith card that tired to drink my coffee once.

Better than the beer he got spilled on him in the World Series, I guess... hmm

I almost only play in the mornings on the weekends. I'll have a cup of coffee while I play. After all my replay league is called the Coffee Table Baseball League (CTB). I'll usually do my write-ups at night (when I can) and I'll have a beer, usually a Sam Adams.

I've been so busy lately, I haven't written much in my 1911 replay. Busy time of the year for me at work and with activities involving my sons. I was able to do some writing today - we had a blizzard that shut down most of Maine. I was able to roll 3 games in my 1920 AL replay this morning (I'm on the 4th of July double headers that mark the 1/2 way point in my replays) and write some more of my summary of the 1911 Giants, which I hope to have posted soon.
