It's Inter vs. Bayern

By Blaidd Drwg

For the Champions League final after Inter advanced on a 3-2 aggregate over Barca despite losing today 1-0 and Bayern advancing after crushing Lyon in the other semi-final.

I only got to see the last 15 minutes of the Inter-Barca game and it was a hell of a match. I still think […]

Peter Reinhart On Bread

by Coltrane

Peter Reinhart gave a highly entaining and informative class on bread, April 17 at Sur La Table in Kirkland.  He signed copies of his new book “Artisan Breads Everyday.”  (As well as many of his other books.)

During the class he referenced this 15-minute clip on

Here’s his “stretch and fold technique” on […]

Sorry, I Couldn't Resist...

By Blaidd Drwg

I would be remiss in my duties if I did not make a comment on another nostolgic Griffey piece of peplum from last week, this time from Steve Kelley of the Times. Some of the comments from both Griffey and Wak make me think that they are sharing the same delusion about […]

If Griffey Makes the All-Star Team as a Starter...

By Blaidd Drwg

…I am no longer watching a baseball game involving him. It is bad enough that you have the Mariners asking fans to vote for him, but you also have this moron who created a site to encourage fans to vote for him. Folks, he ranks dead last in production among AL DH. […]

A note to the Mariners

By Blaidd Drwg

Dear Wak and Z, It is time to end the ridiculous experiment at DH you have with your Griffey/Sweeney Platoon. Neither Griffey or Sweeney looks like they can hit their way out of a paper bag and yet you insist on playing one of them daily and hitting them high up in […]

Running on the Red Sox - Part 2

By Blaidd Drwg

I didn’t get a chance to finish the last post due to technical issues, but there are several disturbing trends with the Sox catchers – in general, their ability to throw out runners with Wakefield on the mound is shaky at best, teams realize that it is easy to run against Wake, […]

Running on the Red Sox

By Blaidd Drwg

The 9 stolen base disaster the other day got me thinking – I always heard that the Sox, and Jason Varitek in particular, were easy to run against, so I thought I would take a look at just how easy it is to steal against them. The following chart represents the numbers […]

Food Humor

By Iron Chef Leftovers

Posted this evening on Facebook by author and sometimes comedian Trevor Corson:

Ran out of gum. Looked in the cupboard for something to chew. Now freshening up my breath with a piece of dried pollock. Is it sustainable? Who knows, it’s probably been dead since 1950.

I guess I expect this […]

The 2010 NFL Draft

by Coltrane

The NFL Draft has a new format this year:  Round 1 is today at 4:30, Rounds 2 and 3 are tomorrow starting at 3:00, and Rounds 4-7 are on Saturday starting at 10:00 am.  All times pst.

An interesting subplot will be to see who goes first– Colt McCoy or Tim Tebow.  One mock […]

Waiting For The Other Shoe

by Coltrane

The Seahawks have the 6th and 14th picks in the 2010 NFL draft.  This is a deep draft, and it’s deep for offensive and defensive linemen in particular.  Having said that, the Seahawks should draft the best available lineman with both first round picks.  This is the type of draft where the Seahawks […]
