NFL Championship Round Menu: Away Game

with 5 comments

I’m going to my friend Moe’s place again to take in the conference Championship games.

His wife made two-meat chili; beef and chunks of pork with beans et al. It was awesome. I’d rate it very highly and in fact, I’m going to steal some of the recipe and incorporate it into our own Thirty Dollar Chili recipe. Basically, I’m going to substitute chunks of pork for the chunks of beef that I usually use.

That’s what cooking is all about. Seeing things out in the world and then incorporating it into your own cooking. Personally, I think their chili would have been better without any beans. I’ve found that beans are a hot-button issue in the world of chili. There’s either bean recipes or no-bean recipes. But basically, the thought of incorporating pieces of pork doesn’t sound like a bad idea at all.

As for the playoffs, I’m all about the red birds (Cardinals) and it’s amazing that their now in the Super Bowl. The Pittsbugh – Baltimore game is a total backroom brawl just as the pundits and myself anticipated. Right now we’re in the 3rd quarter and it’s 13-7, Pittsburgh leading.

I’m pulling for the Ravens. I don’t know why. Normally in this situation I’d be pulling for a team like the Steelers but the Ravens are hitting a lot harder tonight in my opinion. As a football fan, I’d have to admit that Troy Palamalau is one of the best players in the league. He’s just all over the field, making plays. His combination of instincts and aggresiveness are simply unmatched at the safety position.

Alright, I’m going to stop blogging to watch the rest of the game. Hope you’re all enjoying it all as much as I am.

  2. What are the chances that the Giants trade up to the #3 spot in the draft in an effort to land Texas A&M receiver Micheal Crabtree?

    The G-men desperately need to replace Plaxico, and with Scot Pioli as the new GM in KC, I could see them trying to flip that pick for more choices later in the draft. In my mind, this makes too much sense for both sides for it to not happen. Wondering about your take…

  3. Personally I don’t see it.

    They’re loathe to spend a first round pick on offensive players as they’ve been burned so many times in the past (Ron Dayne, Sinorice Moss). Eli has been their biggest success and that came at a very, very high price. Their pattern, which seems to work quite well for them, is to draft defense first. Mathias Kiawanuka, Aaron Ross and Corey Webster have all been very solid picks for them.
