Summertime stream of consciousness…
Firing up the Big Boy this weekend. The Weber Summitt 650 is still one of the best grills going. I have a great recipe for Lemon-Oregano Chicken and I am going to use hickory chips, as recommended by Chef Jamie Purviance of Weber on Friday’s show.
Had a listener, Terry at Home Depot, say this morning that he doesn’t remember a trip through the rotation like the Cardinals just had. Pinero, Carpenter, Wainwright, Wellemeyer and Lohse were all sensational. I have to agree.
If Carp stays healthy, the Cardinals’ top three isn’t surpassed by many. By the way, Home Depot is like a utility for me. I use it as much as I do gas, electric and water.
Don’t you love the Quik Trip summer fountain special? 49 cents for a 32 ounce drink? Wow!
Did you know that with this off-seasons departures of Dane Looker, Torry Holt, Orlando Pace and Pisa Tinoisamoa, the only Rams that have played in a playoff game with the franchise are Marc Bulger, Steven Jackson, Chris Massey and Leonard Little? That 2004 game in Atlanta saw Warrick Dunn rush for 142 yards and Michael Vick run for 119 in a 47-17 Falcon victory.
The Rockport walking shoe is…by far…the most comfortable show I have ever worn.
We will see that LeBron shot forever. And I’m glad we will. After Hedo Turkoglu hit HIS three-pointer to put Orlando ahead, I changed channels. When I came back, the Cavs were mobbing LeBron. I missed it live. I’ve seen it plenty, though.
See the sports guy in Cleveland that went nuts? Classic. Check it out below.
I hate the Red Wings. But I respect ‘em.
Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian is better than the original. I like pretty much everything Ben Stiller does; There’s Something About Mary, Meet the Parents, the cameo in Anchorman, Dodgeball, Zoolander, Starsky and Hutch. All terrific. Heck, Amy Adams is worth the price of admission to Night.
Whaddya think Helio Castroneves likes better; the Mirror Ball trophy from Dancing with the Stars, or the Borg-Warner trophy from winning at Indy again? His biggest win, of course, was against the Feds, but he didn’t get a trophy for that.
Are you a recycler? I can’t believe how much paper and plastic my family consumes, and we recycle a lot.
Went to a local restaurant on Saturday night, when when we got there the hostess said “you can sit anywhere you want, but I have to tell you our cook decided not to come in today, so we only have thin crust (frozen) pizza and (microwave) appetizers. Not very good for business, but I appreciate the honesty.
Happy Memorial Day. Remember those that gave their lives to protect our way of life. No country in the world is able to enjoy sports like we do, so I appreciate all of you who are doing it for us.
Monday golf. Tuesday show. Steve Spagnuolo guest. Take care.
