My favorite time of the year! Fall and football season! It’s a great time to break out the chili, meatballs, Sunday sauces and other party food recipes. For a Thursday night game or afternoon snack, soft pretzels are quick and easy to put together, fun to do with kiddies and... Continue reading

Day 3 We woke up early enough to eat the free breakfast at the hotel, which is not usually our thing, but one of us is about to get fired. It turns out that breakfast is very nearly the only thing edible in Ireland. Sports Fan ate pancakes every day... Continue reading

Day 1 Arrive at the airport to find out our 9:45 p.m. flight is delayed five (5) hours. Seven (7) hours from when we are standing at the check-in line at the airport. We’re not at the nice terminal, mind you; no, we’re at the shitty-ass terminal that has wrapped... Continue reading

I’m not the only gimp in the house now, Sports Fan now has a sprained tendon in his right foot. He has to go to physical therapy twice a week just when I’m starting physical therapy on my foot. Funny, huh? Not the fact that he’s in pain, of course.... Continue reading
