Spring Fever

wings fans are idiots
Mattcc96: why
me: ohhh, the wings are too old, the wings are too soft.. there goal tending sucks.. yeah, if you watched more than 2 games in the last 2 seasons you would know that after 2 players they are one of the youngest teams in the league.. you would know that they have been playing playoff style hockey since M Babcock was hired.. and you would know that Wings goal tending has been the best in the league the past two seasons,
there. now I dont have to call a sports talk station
Mattcc96: thanks, I turn off the radio when hockey talk is on
i feel the same way about the Tigers. Everyone is a baseball expert now
me: yeah.. cause you know that the tigers sucks cause its cold out.. or they cant hit cause Granderson isnt in the line up.. or the bullpen sucks cause a beer bonging, guitar hero playing, flash in the pan, flamer thrower is on the DL.. Or that the second coming of Dan Quisenbury is on the DL..
Mattcc96: ha, exactly
me: My take: remember when everyone thought the 2006 tigers were a fluke? pitching wise they were.. they were lucky to not lose anyone to injury and they were lucky when the pitching went in the tank the second half to pull out a playoff spot.. until the pitching is address this is a good team.. a team that will contend for a playoff spot for a couple years.. I think there shot at a WS was in 06 and now its gone..
Mattcc96: yeah pretty much
it was amazing no one got hurt in 06
me: yeah.. ok.. since I have been lazy I am going to use this as a blog entry.. I havent posted anything since November

First off, here is my choice for this summers grilling beverage.. Nothing like a Corona and lime when grilling in the Southern and Central American tradition (I am hooked on Chimichurri this year)..

Tonight I tried a new basting marinade called Palomilla (basically a garlic and lime marinade of Cuban origin).. The result was outstanding (although it did not translate well when photographed).. The combination of salt, lime, garlic and cumin really made a perfect summer flavor.. Add a couple grilled onions (with olive oil, salt and ground white pepper), a fresh salad and your stylin in the 80% humidity.. Placido, Carlos & Maggs will feel right at home if they ever decide to come over..

Oakland Fatboys

So Oakland signs ex Lion Mike Williams. What is the Raiders fascination with over weight players? First its the fattest kicker on earth, Fatbastion Janikowski.. Next they hire coach fatboy Art Shell.. This summer they really have upped the ante when they brought Fante Culpepper and Fatboy Williams on board..
I present to you the all fat team..
