That is really nice. I hope the news reaches him in the cave he has been hiding in deep in the Himalayas.

I didn't know it was his fault they blew game 6 and went on to get crushed in game 7.

I mean, the first thing with pea soup is the texture, okay?
I've had watery pea soup, it's AWFUL.
Uh, I've had gelatinous, thick pea soup, it's TERRIBLE.
Pea soup, much like clam chowder, needs to have that consistency first, that you can stand the spoon up in it, but the spoon soon tilts, that's the consistency you want.
Number two: Uh, pea soup on it's own can be a little bland. It wants, uh, a fairly aggressive peppering and salting.
Number three: Pea soup needs a fine dice of ham. Not bacon, not any other meat, not turkey. It needs a fine dice of ham.
Uh, number four: Uh, pea soup scorches easily. You don't wanna heat it on a high heat. You wanna heat it on medium low, just until it's warmed through.
Uh, number five: Pea soup is best made, uh, by hand, not out of a Campbell's can. And the key to pea soup, you want a ham bone, uh, for the stock you make, uh, to, to boil your peas.

I actually hate the Cubs. My wife is from Chicago and she's a Cubs fan but definitely not me. I was rooting for the Indians in the World Series.

If I were him I'd just sell that thing. You know someone would pay an absurd amount to have that ring, even though his last name is engraved on it.

I don't think that would endear him to the Ricketts family.
If it were the Tigers and it was me, I'd never let it go. But the Tigers aren't winning a WS in my lifetime, so it doesn't matter to me.

I bet it's the crap ring the employees got and not the real one the players got.

I don't know if you've noticed, but I've turned over a new leaf at tSwill..

I ain't sayin' that I won't perpetuate the snark when justified, but I love each and every one of you dearly.... so I have made the conscious decision over the last few months to back off of the anti-sports persona.

you guys are all great Americans and great Spartans.

GO GREEN!!

Huh - good to hear, I only come around every week or so when MSU sports aren't being contested. So this was shocking for me.
