    Default What should "The MeatMan" give up for Lent 2018?

    I really don't have much to choose from.

    1) beer(all booze)

    2) weed

    3) all soda(milk, juice and water only)

    Last year I gave up soda.

    It would be pretty tough on "The MeatMan" giving up either booze or weed.

    Is anybody else trying to figure out what to give up for Lent?

    We are officially under forty-eight(48) hours until the start.

    You should go forty-two(42) days without making a sports bet.

    At $1100 per game if you went twenty-one(21) and twenty-one(21) you would save $2100.00 bucks in juice if you could hit 50%(which I doubt).

    You could put that money in the collection basket the next time you visit the Guardian Angel Cathedral which is the catholic church located next to the Encore casino on the Las Vegas strip.

    A guy like you should like Lent, JK.

    You could save money?

    But for some reason you are NOT a believer??

    Why???

    I give up coffee and salty snacks. That first cup of coffee on Easter morning is wonderful.

    Sweets. I’ll stuff my pie hole with a couple Paczki’s Fat Tuesday and hold on for dear life for a Reese’s peanut butter egg Easter Sunday.

    I'm a diet coke addict, how do you feel differently?

    Default Re: What should "The MeatMan" give up for Lent 2018?

    Meat....Why don't you get real serious, and give up sports for that time. No watching, no reading about sports. It would be like like being in the desert for 40 days and nights. Think how cleansed your mind would feel. It might even be beneficial in the long run.

    Anyway, good topic.

    Felt lethargic over the first week or so.

    But now I'm losing some body fat and regained some muscle so it's easier to cart around my 220 pounds.

    I get my caffeine in other forms (tea or coffee) but I miss the "bubbly sensation" of soda.

    Sounds good, you must be working out a little though, how could you lose fat and gain muscle otherwise? My problem is I have to have a diet coke first thing in the morning(and a few more during the day). I get a little nervous if my supply dips below 8-10 12 packs on hand.

    Isn't the idea of lent is that it is a true sacrifice? I think you should give up weed and booze.

    Bad idea.

    I have to eat that on Ash Wednesday and every Friday during Lent.

    I need to fast on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday.

    No meat on any Friday(or Ash Wednesday) during lent.

    Giving up Coca Cola is pretty tough for The MeatMan.

    Nothing better than an ice cold can of coke!

    Plus if I gave up booze or weed for the forty-five-six(46) days of Lent I would probably quit all together.

    March Madness is right in the middle of Lent.

    Would be tough to shut my business down at that time.

    I will never give up diet coke

    My buddy is in the best shape of anyone I know and drinks 4 or 5 double gulps of diet coke from 7/11 per day. Never see him without one. Truth is you can survive any bad habit if you work hard enough to make up for it.

    More winning advice from BOMZEE.

    For the uninitiated, BOMZEE is in the athletic arena as a top-class table tennis player.

    Will skunk the recreational ping pong player or neighborhood champ, 11-0.

    BOMZEE once gave me winning advice when I was suffering through a losing streak while betting sports.

    BOMZEE"S recommendation was to start a strenuous workout routine.

    I've never been diagnosed as a diabetic but I assume Diet Coke's aspartame ingredient helps diabetics control their blood sugar levels.

    Good for your buddy, Javy.

    What do you do to stay in shape?

    Hate to workout but love to play basketball.

    I always planned my days around Diet Coke consumption.

    Needed one in the morning, one at night, one at lunch, one at dinner.

    And the more I drank, the more I wanted to drink.

    Highly-addictive beverage.

    Boring is right.

    If you have a chance, come to EOG's Fifth Annual Day at the Races at Arlington Park on the first Saturday in August.

    It should be fun.

    CHITOWNJOE and RICHSOX24 serve as our serious handicappers.

    I'll ask BRAYDEN11, BIGRUNNER and VIEJO DINOSAUR to be on their best behavior.

    And I'm hoping BLUELINE, TRY3 and FAIR WARNING have a chance to attend this year.

    CHUCKYG made it one year and EASYGOER has been a fixture every year.
