Vin de Napkin - Twofer Tuesday

On this momentous Inauguration day, surely I cannot be the only one who views drinking inexpensive wine as something akin to a blind date—i.e. prepare for the worst, hope for the best.  Most private label wines at TJ’s inspire such feelings ... and hence the irony with a certain CNN headline from today that invoked the words “sober” and “hope.”

Nor, can I be the only person who went to college and intermingled with people who were inhaling their time in school with extracurricular activities ... a lot of extracurricular activities ... not all of them legal.  That’s what I immediately thought of when I saw the Wine & Spirits Daily report that the NBA was going to allow in-stadium liquor advertising.  I must be David Stern’s worst nightmare to do a mental free association of “NBA” and “liquor” and come up with “Cognac” and “drugs.”  Smith & Wesson didn’t come to mind, that’s the province of the NFL.  Just the same, well, hey, a lot of kids in college carry their drugs in a Crown Royal bag ... and Altoid tins ... don’t believe me?  Google “crown royal bag and dope.”  The police blotter review commences.  You know, we do legit research at this blog, too.
