Pasta with Asparagus and Bacon

By Iron Chef Leftovers

Spring is, in theory, here and I wanted to make a nice, quick and relatively light dish to use up some first of the season asparagus that I had and I had a hankering for pasta, so I figured that I would do a rift off a classic peas and prosciutto […]

The Mavs And The Spread

by A.J. Coltrane

From the Wall Street Journal:   The Dallas Mavericks covered against the spread 15 times in a row(!) prior to Game 2 of the NBA Western Conference Finals.

The Mavs were 5 point favorites in Game 2, but lost to the game and ended the streak.

The WSJ piece has an odd title – “The Team Las […]

Totally Over the Top Mac & Cheese

By Iron Chef Leftovers

I get tons of requests for this mac and cheese recipe since it is easy to make and is phenomenally good. I can’t take a great deal of credit though; I took the base recipe from Alton Brown and made a few changes to it. I had the pleasure of talking […]

Battle of the TTO Kings

By Blaidd Drwg

Over the weekend, the Mariners played the White Sox. There is really nothing all that special about 2 teams that are floundering pretty badly at the plate going against each other and you would expect some pretty low scoring games, which you got.

There was, however, an interesting side bar to this […]

A Tale of Two Lineups

By Blaidd Drwg

As I sit here this morning thinking about the Mariners game Friday night, I am struck by the lineup they fielded. You have Ichiro and Figgins at the top, Bradley, Olivio, Smoak and Cust in the middle and Wilson, Saunders and Ryan and the back end, Not exactly Murderer’s Row, but it […]

How To Move an NBA Franchise in 13 Easy Steps

By Blaidd Drwg

The NBA has a “relocation committee” headed by he-who-must-not-be-named-in-Seattle. In honor of the NBA, in its infinite wisdom, “allowing” the Sacramento Kings to stay in Sacramento for one more season before a decision is made on allowing them to move to Anaheim, I present you with how to move an NBA franchise […]
