They say a picture is worth 1,000 words. Here’s 1,000 words on Phil Mickelson winning the Masters.
Plus, Nick’s best man speech, our trip to the hospital and a detailed breakdown of CBS covering the Masters. Click here to listen.
So if you can’t tell by the headline, we talk about food today. Sarah Sprague from Black and Gold Tchotchkes joins the show to talk about her 14 Days of Super Bowl Recipes. Amazing work.
But first, Nick and I talk about National Signing day, focusing not just on the teams this year, but taking a look back at some previous years to see if the five star locks held up. Fun stuff to look back from a few years ago to see how the recrutniks fared.
The Weekend That Is = FOOD.
Sarah, aka TheStarterWife on the interwebs, has your Super Bowl Party covered. We run through nearly the full list of her recipes, and she talks about how simple some of them really are to make.
And we get so into this food stuff we actually talk about the rehydration process of peas, only do dehydrate them again to be coated in wasabi. Yes, a twice dehydrated pea!
We talk about the lack of native cuisine to Indianapolis, which is what led to her picking Sugar Cream Pie to go up against N’awlins Jambalaya in her Super Bowl city cook-off.
She has pretzel bread, so we talk about the potential for blasphemy with regard to screwing with the soft pretzel. But she is a Steelers fan and has Pittsburgh roots, so she knows the importance of the pretzel to this part of the country. Oh, and the Mac and Cheese bites look incredible.
And yes, she has blueberry salsa and made her own chips to go with them. Folks, she’s doing the Lord’s work. Go read everything, like, NOW.
Chris Littmann from The Sporting Blog joins the show from Miami to talk about media day. We run though what the event was like and talk about some of the highlights. Honestly, rather than read it here, go check out the great coverage at TSB from Littmann and Tunison, who I am calling the Crockett and Tubbs of the Sporting News team.
Nick and I follow up the football talk with more football talk. Really.
We discuss the two major ankle stories this week, including the one where Warren Sapp is adamant that Dwight Freeney won’t play this Sunday because he didn’t have his ankle wrapped or iced during the ONE HOUR of media day. Methinks he’s talking just to talk. Oh, and the other story? Favre. Whodathunkit?
