Hit & Run: Bingo Bango

The Allen Iverson-led Pistons shut down the Cavaliers and their 8-game winning streak, 96-89.  Lebron had 25 points, against Iverson’s 23 points.  I am quite fond of Allen Iverson’s chocolate brown eyes, but watching his body in motion is pretty sweet, too.  And yes, I’m quite aware of the irony of my admiring his body in motion, and using a still photo to prove that point, but bear with me.

Hit & Run

In news that only I care about, David Wright and Carlos Beltran get Gold Gloves in the National League.  I’m a little dismayed at the lack of GG love for Santana, who is a joy to watch fielding his position.  Instead, Greg Maddux gets a record 18th Gold Glove for his fielding excellence.

Also winning Gold Gloves were Yadier Molina, Adrian Gonzalez, Jimmy Rollins, Brandon Phillips, Nate McClouth and Shane Victorino.

In other good news for Mets fans, the team picked up the option on Carlos Delgado.  Now, they’ve just got to find a whole new bullpen.

The Tailgate with Metsy: Empanadas

When TSW started the Friday Football Foodie, I immediately pounced on the idea of posting a how-to on how to make empanadas.  The fact that I did not know how to make empanadas was not important.  I’d solicit the help of one of my sisters-in-law (I have legion), and boom!  We have empanadas.

I never realized that it’d take me 13 months to actually get it done.  I’m a master procrastinator, what can I say?


Here’s all you need.  Simple as pie (why do people say this?  Making pies doesn’t look easy!). Continue reading

Hit & Run: And the Phillies Win. Grumble, Grumble.


If you want more pics, find them yourself.

As I write this, Baby Mets’ Phanatic is taunting me.  He’s staring at me with his evil, beady eyes.  He’s sticking out his little red tongue at me.  Stop it, Phanatic, or you’ll go back from whence you came!

So, as everyone knows, in the continuation of Game 5 (started Monday), the Phillies beat the Rays 4-3.  This is where I’d give you some analysis about the game, or the Series, but I saw that VH1 was wrapping up their 100 Greatest Hip Hop Songs, and that was enough to lure me away from the WS.  (BTW, Public Enemy’s “Fight the Power” was voted #1.)
