    Yep, we have party stores were you can purchase beer (including half barrel and pony kegs), liquor, wine, and tobacco here in Michigan.

    Its about our only redeeming factor. And the 10 cent deposit on each bottle/can. That’s pretty clutch too.

    I’ve always wondered, is being a ‘progenitor’ painful?

    Not sure where to comment, but I much prefer the old front page layout.

      Likewise. I feel like I’m being forced to read a large-print version intended for octogenarians holding up a magnifying glass.

        @ Dave

        I’d assume the layout change is to make the site more mobile friendly.

        Unfortunately, similar to SB Nation’s switch, the redesign make the desktop experience worse. I’m assuming there is a smarter way to these types of redesigns…hopefully the site designers will be open to changing (frequently if needed) the new design to improve it towards a better unified experience between desktop and mobile.

    Perhaps it is different regionally, but in my experience FAQ stands for Frequently Asked Questions.

    FAQ = For All Questions? I always thought it was Frequently Asked Questions.
