trying to watch the world baseball classic (the world cup of baseball) and was confused as shit why ESPN was broadcasting the Dominican Republic vs Puerto Rico game in spanish. I even pressed the SAP button on the controller stupidly thinking a double negative would result into the english broadcast. teacha.gif

i guess ESPN is showing it because they only have rights to the spanish language telecast, so they decided: fuck it just show it in spanish. Its cool though, its like watching non-english telecasts of euro football matches.

That brawl last night was something else. It's pissing me off that I have to wake up at 5 in the morning for Pool A games though.

the funny part is when the Mexicans realized that 99% of Team Canada is extremely well versed in the art of fisticuffs.

I remember the commentators mentioning at least 3-4 Team Canada members were former hockey players at the HS/college level. They did what they needed to do. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Well the Canadian batter, didn't seem so tough, what a pansy "Oh you hit me with the ball, ouchy, you big Meckshican meany". So not only a boring game, a pansy's game.

My cold has broke. This makes me very happy as one weekend on the couch is enough.

It looks like we have a place to live lined up for the upcoming move. It's nothing special, just an apartment that'll hold us over for a year or two while we decide on our long-term plan, but the price is right, the location is good, and it has some cool stuff for the kiddo (a pool, splash park, and playground are all onsite).

I will say that dealing with the leasing office has already reminded me why renting sucks, but at least we have a decent place to live.

I'm pretty sure I've said this before, but I'll say it again, just to be sure. You're not missing anything by not eating shrimp. There's a whole host of non-Kosher stuff, including shellfish, that is delicious, but don't ever worry you've been deprived because you can't have shrimp. It's just...blah.

I'm happy you've found a nice place to live, G, but must take issue with the shrimp thing. It's all in how it's prepared, IMO.
post #29861 of 45251
Yeah, my position on shrimp isn't generally very popular, especially among fellow seafood lovers. The problem, to me, is that it just doesn't have any inherent deliciousness. It's basically meat with a tinge of sea flavor. I'm not saying I won't eat it, and I agree it can be improved with preparation. Still, I could go the rest of my life without ever eating another shrimp, and I don't think I'd ever miss it.

i think you have mentioned it, but its always nice to hear it again. smile.gif

Sorry MrG, you're wrong. Good shrimp has this wonderful sweetness to it that is just delicious.

I will agree that things like popcorn shrimp are terrible. What's the point in shrimp if you're going to bury it in thick fry?

I will say that as the husband of a Jew, shrimp is not the thing I wish she ate most.

That would be bacon.

I look on it as the chicken of the sea (no reference to the canned tuna or Jessica Simpson). There is a ton of chicken out there that's pretty meh both in quality and in preparation. However, you get the right bird with the right prep and it's eye opening. So I totally agree there's a ton of shrimp I could do without but I'd not write off the entire shrimp experience.

Being a generation older than you, and coming from Canadian farm country, "shrimp" always meant boiled, peeled, and chilled and stuck in cocktail sauce. I could never understand why people felt it was a luxury item and "high class." (Keep in mind a new Oldsmobile was for rich folk where I grew up). Actually...that part is still puzzling...

any food that requires manual "de-pooping" is an instant turn off for me.
