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..
