no poultry cooking on game day? What about beef or pork? Can I smoke a rack of ribs? Or should we all go vegan from April to November just in case?

Smoking ribs would be the perfect answer. And then tell me when dinner is. :)

Just over half the teams only 69 or less. The Marlins have 36. The Tigers have 41. Giants 48, Pirates 51, Cleveland 54, Royals 55, White Sox 60. The Phillies only have 51. They must be getting the other balls. I wonder which ones they get when they play each other?

Itz a fact that home runs are up in the majors. Look it up, posting numbers from under achieving teams doesn’t change that

You should've gone with non-poultry. That was the only safe choice.


Don't spoil your appetite.

If you must eat before the game ends, save some chicken duely earned yesterday.

Yup. That is a fact. Juiced balls claim is not.

But that's just it. It isn't chicken. You've already cast the die for a loss!!

Well, then, put me down as a die caster, because we've ribs on the pellet grill.

A few things:

1). In today’s political age, a lot of people who live in this country like to complain about how terrible it is. In my opinion, it’s disgraceful. It shouldn’t take a holiday to remind us of reality, and number of great Americans who have sacrificed their lives to promote freedom of choice, and dethrone tyrants, despots, and sycophants of all kinds. The United States is the greatest country in the world, and it’s due to service men and women not here to eat grilled hot dogs and drink beer today.

...


I heard related a conversation with someone recently moved to the US from an iron curtain country. Asked about the various aspects of life there he would answer... "Can't complain. Job was good. Work rewarding." "Can't complain. Schools were free and eduaction was good." "Can't complain. Stores were well stocked with goods." Finally they asked if everything was so good, why'd they move? "Ah! Here, i can complain!"

OT but still baseball, is there anything to prevent the Twins from calling Kimbrel and saying, hey, wait until the draft and we'll pay you stupid money for your services?
