Looks like Kenny [you know what word belongs here] Powers just scored another [you know what word belongs here] home run.
On Wednesday, HBO announced that it has renewed "Eastbound & Down" for a third season.

2010 Barn Burner Bar-B-Q at Lambs Farm

This was our seventh BBQ event, I was very pleased with the outcome. We took 23 of 46, In Chicken & Brisket we took 21st place, plus we beat Johnny Trigg (Godfather of BBQ) in Brisket. I was stoked with that. We took 14th in Ribs & 31st in Pork(Shoulder). I have attached our pictures of our boxes. See what you think.

Another reason why CPS is GREAT!!!!!

Most school garden produce is forbidden fruit in CPS lunchrooms

But one thing the more than 40 gardens have in common is that none of the produce ever finds its way into CPS lunchrooms. Instead, because of rules set by the district and its meal provider, the food is sold or given away.

Jared Allen suggests you try eating bear meat

Minnesota's sack master recounted his offseason hunting exploits with 790 The Ticket in Miami, and said going after bear was the best.
"Oh yeah, I got black bear up in Idaho, I got a pure David deer down in Florida. I think that's about all. Let's see. Some coyotes and stuff like that down in Texas. But probably the thing I was most excited about was the black bear I got up there in Idaho."
What he learned about bears:
"Bears don't smell too good. They're full of ticks and all sorts of crap on their fur. But you just tie a rope around it and start pulling."
And does Allen eat what he kills?
"Oh absolutely, absolutely. I've got a new cookbook coming out and we've got some bear recipes in there. A little braised bear. So bear, it ain't too bad. It's a little bit sweeter meat and it can be tough. ... A lot of people will put it in stew. So you've got to at least try it. That was the first bear I'd got, so you've got to at least try the meat and it wasn't too bad."

At age 48, Chelios finally hangs up the skates

In NHL history, only Hall of Famer Gordie Howe was older than Chelios when he played, skating at 52 for the Hartford Whalers during the 1979-80 season almost a decade after leaving the Red Wings.
Chelios also is the only player in NHL history to appear in at least 400 games with three different teams. Known for his strict workout regimen and surprising endurance given his age, he played the fourth-most regular season games in NHL history (1,651) and the most postseason games in NHL history (266).

Kenny Powers is back

Mark September 17th down on your calendars if you’re a fan of the HBO Show Eastbound & Down because Kenny Powers is back in action, and that sombrero tells us that the season will take place down Mexico way. I didn’t even know Tijuana had a professional baseball team.

Wear Your Love for Superdawg

Sometimes, we love so deeply that our love must be proclaimed. We’re speaking, of course, of our local lust for deep dish from Gino's, the unignorable craving for a wiener from Superdawg, or the deep hunger that can be satisfied only with a piled-high corned beef sandwich from Manny's. Now, you can take a deep breath, steel your nerves, and announce your gustatory proclivities thanks to a t-shirt series from faux-vintage purveyor Hometown Classics. At $28 a pop, they're not cheap (in fact, Manny's sells an identical version of their shirt for eight bucks less), but can you really put a price on true love?

Should the Blackhawks keep Niemi?

GM Stan Bowman had 48 hours to either keep Antti Niemi at $2.75 million or let him walk as an unrestricted free agent and go after a veteran goalie such as Marty Turco. Rumor has it, we signed Marty Turco to a 1 year at $1.65 million!!!!!

He sees LeBron as a runaway slave

Jackson said Gilbert's comments were "mean, arrogant and presumptuous."

"He speaks as an owner of LeBron and not the owner of the Cleveland Cavaliers," the reverend said in a release from his Chicago-based civil rights group, the Rainbow PUSH Coalition. "His feelings of betrayal personify a slave master mentality. He sees LeBron as a runaway slave. This is an owner employee relationship -- between business partners -- and LeBron honored his contract."

LeBron is not a slave, but Dan Gilbert thinks so. Owning a team has its privileges, but declaring the ownership of people is off limits.

What is next??????

Now what for the Chicago Blackhawks?

The team announced Monday that it would match San Jose's four-year, $14 million offer sheet for defenseman Niklas Hjalmarsson, a restricted free agent. That means someone else has to move for Chicago to meet its salary cap.
Sources told ESPN.com on Monday that one of the players the Hawks are dangling is Brian Campbell. Mind you, moving his hefty contract seems to be a long shot. He has six years left on his deal, which pays $7.14 million per season; plus, he has a no-trade clause that features his right to choose eight teams to which he will accept a trade. A source said Campbell had not yet been asked for his list of eight teams.
Our ESPN Chicago colleague Jesse Rogers is also reporting that Patrick Sharp could be another option. He's got two years left at $3.9 million, a much easier contract to move. But Sharp is also one heck of a player.
Elsewhere Monday as we await the results

Top 5 Overrated Pizzas List

What a Tool!!!! Really, He thinks Lou & Gino's are better that Original Uno's. He was a Douchebag when he was judge on Iron Chef.

1. Pizzeria Uno – Cheese casserole, par-baked dough and more tourists than Navy Pier
2. Vito & Nick’s – Extra greasy (factory-made) cheese, lifeless crust – akin to Madison’s Pizza Pit (great at 3 a.m.)
3. Pizza D.O.C. – More cheese than a Wisconsin dairy rally; oddly characterless crust despite wood-burning oven
4. Aurelio’s – Even if it’s from the original store (and from the old oven) the crust still disappoints and the toppings all taste mass-produced/chain-like
5. Spacca Napoli – Despite artisanal approach, finished pies are like eating a bowl of soup surrounded by soggy dough with barely enough char at the edges (despite drop-dead gorgeous wood-burning oven)

Happy 55th Birthday!!!! Jersey's finest


Glenn Danzig's new studio album, Deth Red Sabaoth, is currently streaming on CBS Radio's "The Street Date", which also features an in-depth video interview with Glenn.
The 11-track collection, produced, recorded and penned by Danzig, is laced with Glenn's lycanthropic growls and blues-infected wailing. Tracks including "Black Candy," "The Revengeful," and the first single, "On A Wicked Night," emit a spectral glow to rival the highest points in Danzig's colossal discography. Part 1 of the exquisite two-part "Pyre of Souls" opens with acoustic guitar, haunting piano, Glenn's plainsong vocal, and an almost dirge-like feel; Part II explodes with electric guitars and a driving, mesmerizing cadence.
Joining Glenn in the studio for the recording of Deth Red Sabaoth were guitarist Tommy Victor (Prong, Ministry), a Danzig cohort on and off since 1997, and drummer Johnny Kelly (Type O Negative, Seventh Void). While Kelly has toured with Glenn intermittently since 2002, this is the first time he has recorded with the band. Glenn handled the bass chores for most of the album, and played drums on "Black Candy."

Club 81 Too: Fried fare, served with heaping side of family

Hegewisch is a real place, and it's not in Harry Potter-land. But mention it to Chicagoans and 75 percent of them will give you that tilted-head, pursed-lipped look of Huh? Where?It is, in fact, a neighborhood of Chicago, as south and east as the city goes. It's possible to play Twister with left hand on Chicago, left foot on Burnham, Ill., and right foot on Hammond, Ind.

Today's Lunch

Lucky’s Sandwich Company
Famous for its huge sandwiches piled high with meat( Pastrami & Capiola), cheese, tomatoes, coleslaw, and fries (yes, in the sandwich), it would take two humans mouths to fit the whole sandwich in a bite, but not this man. They have a challenge to eat three Lucky sandwiches, your choice of meat, with all toppings in only one hour. The world record is just under 5 mins.

Happy 51st Birthday!!!!

The New World's Biggest Burger Competition:

Ambrosia On The Spot in Randwick, a suburb of Sydney, has made a 95.5-kilogram (about 210.5 pounds) burger to beat the current Guinness World Record holder for "largest hamburger commercially available", the 84-kilogram burger from Mallie's Sports Grill & Bar in Southgate, Michigan. The burger will be on the menu for the next year for AUD $1,500 ($1,220). Aside from the ginormous beef patty, the burger is made of 120 eggs, 150 slices of cheese, 1.5 kilograms of beets, 2.5 kilograms of tomatoes, and almost 2 kilograms of lettuce, topped with a special sauce on a sesame seed bun.

Chrissy Pronger

This is disrespectful to figure skaters, who are not sissies, but incredible athletes in their own right.

"I don't read what you guys write. Good or bad," Pronger said.
When it was pointed out that the newspaper had an interesting picture of him, Pronger still wouldn't take the bait.
"Next question," he responded.
The reporter continued "in a figure skating dress," and Pronger replied: "Next question." When the reporter said "and I was just wondering," Pronger again said: "Next question.""I really couldn't care, to be honest with you," Pronger said. "I'm worried about playing the game."

There’s a 75% or better chance Kuma’s will have a 2nd location by this time next year.

The big question for Kuma’s Corner, home of our city’s most lauded (and loudest) burgers, has been when — not if — they’ll expand beyond their Avondale location. Waiting two hours for their pretzel-rolled monstrosities calls for such queries. Well, it’s coming, and owner Mike Cain said there’s a 75 percent or better chance Kuma’s will have a second location by this time next year. Only it might not necessarily be another burger joint.“I just think we can use more BBQ in the city,” Cain told The Stew Friday. “I’m also looking at Southern foods. Fried chicken, collard greens, sweet potato pies.”Cain, a ribs aficionado, said no location has been set yet, though he’s got his eyes on a few spots. Cain also spoke of expanding Kuma’s burgers to other cities, such as Milwaukee, Pittsburgh and other “working man cities,” as he called them. For now, Cain is focused on Kuma’s 5th anniversary party on July 10, in which he’ll shut down Francisco Avenue, where 10 metal bands will have the stage. It’s free to the public.

Smoque BBQ is at U.S. Cellular Field

These baby backs from Smoque won't be available at U.S. Cellular Field, but its brisket and pulled pork will.Posted by Kevin PangThe White Sox might not be having the most spectacular season (and neither are their North Side brethren), but there's a new reason to visit U.S. Cellular Field this summer. Smoque, the BBQ joint that has reached an echelon of must-visits among 'Cue aficianados, will be operating a stall at the stadium starting this Tuesday, June 1. Bad news: most ticker-holders won't be able to sample Barry Sorkin's brisket and pulled pork sandwiches at the stadium, because the stand will be in section 318 on the LG Skyline Club Level in right field. So unless you're holding Skybox or premium tickets, you're out of luck, but you can still visit the restaurant's main Old Irving Park location. "It's incredibly exciting for us," Sorkin told The Stew Thursday afternoon. "Hopefully a North Side restaurant on the South Side won't anger people. At the end of the day, we're all Chicagoans."For now, the Cell will only offer a greatest hits of Smoque's BBQ: the 14-hour smoked brisket (ask for end pieces), pulled pork shoulder, barbecue beans and his tangy coleslaw. Sweet tea and Blue Moon wheat beer will also be offered. The food will be made at the restaurant's kitchen and transported to the stadium daily."We're slicing the brisket and pulling the pork on site, so the product doesn't suffer at all." Sorkin said Levy Restaurants approached him about the opportunity of a partnership several months ago.
