Last two times I shipped, they asked me what was in the package. Not wanting to be a liar I told them it was live yeast samples. Everything went through ok.

If you already have a label created and the box sealed they don’t ask many questions. If asked, I’d say it’s a care package for a friend or family member. They really just want to know if it’s potentially hazardous, so as long as your answer does sound hazardous or cause you to act strangely, they don’t care.

At a shipper near my old house, I once printed bottle labels and entry forms for a homebrew contest, then later the same day shipped the beer from the same store. Next time I was in there they asked how I did in the competition. When the same staff was there on later trips they asked how the home brewing was going and if I was entering any more contests. Never questioned the fact that I was shipping beer with them.

They probably scrutinize more or less depending on state. Wine is legal to ship in or out of MA but beer is illegal. Makes no sense, but it is what it is.

Yeah, but what reason would they ever have to think that it’s beer and not iced tea, motor oil, essential oils, lotion, personal lubricant (maybe that will be my new answer), bbq sauce, homemade ketchup, sea water, or any number of other liquids that they don’t care about?

What’s in the box?
A care package.
Sounds like a liquid...
Yeah. Porno mags and lube.

This isn't the turn I thought this discussion was going to make, but I have to say I'm pleased. But now I fear large shipments of lube with my beer going forward.

A shipment arrived yesterday from @Chorgey. Great stuff, I love Mischief! And as you can see one bottle of the blood orange tart ale is empty in the pic, it went perfect with dinner last night.

So I am behind schedule. I haven’t really been keeping up with when and how the nfl plans to run the season, but it I’ll get the league active and start figuring who not to draft according to the latest hotspots?

If you sent beer, and haven’t responded please do so you can keep you spot for this year.

If you haven’t sent beer, you should be bubble wrapping and taping this weekend to keep your spot.

If you would like to be added to the league, please respond here or message me and you can be put on a waiting list for any possible openings.

I'm in again, but may I make the same request as last year for the rule change to drop the point per rush attempt.

If other like this scoring, than that's fine, it is fun to score 200 pts per week, I just feel it takes a lot of strategy out and forces you to just play any RB in the flex.

Ugh. I’ve been on the fence. Usually enjoy FF, but am worried it’s going to turn into a poopyshow. I also clearly don’t like shipping beer because I put it off for 8 months and just shipped last week. :rolleyes:

No worries, I can drop the rush point. It was how this league was originally scored so I kept it.
I think it’s going to be a poopshow too, but like everything else beer will make it better!

If @TallDan wants to play we have 8 teams in this league.

I removed the rush attempt point. Any other changes? I think last year we fixed the resetting waiver order.

Ready for the draft tonight and for the NFL to start.... all of my college teams have either canceled their season or don't start play until next weekend.

Draft starts in just a few minutes. I've not done any homework for this, I'd probably be better off with autopicks.

...but I've got a beer, and the pork shoulder just came off the smoker, so as soon as the draft is done, i'll be ready to eat!
