Re: Colin Kaepernick

The idea that Brett Hundley would be better than Colin Kaepernick is kind of laughable. Do you think a young player with as poor a sense of pocket awareness as Hundley has would be vertical for the rest of the season, with as beat up as GB's offensive line already is? Kaepernick's got legs, and he k...

Re: Low Sodium Recommendations

fennel, I really don't think your bread elitism is going to win any converts, so can we agree to stipulate that you have strong opinions about the bread you allow to pass your lips? I don't think it needs to be said another 20 times in 20 more dismissive and superior ways.

Re: Beer Advocate, WI, & New Glarus

I LOVE beer. Okay, just seemed like you had an allowance for poetry as far as wine was concerned, but beer was all commodity transactions. I don't typically use "terroir" in discussing the house characteristics of various breweries anyway, but the concept it tries to express -- as much as...

Re: Beer Advocate, WI, & New Glarus

"environmental conditions adding appreciable characteristics" The concept of terroir is so much deeper and lovelier than that dull thud. It's the soul of a place brought to life in a grape. Topgraphy, soil, sun, weather, water, history. Seems perfectly plausible that the New Glarus water ...

Re: Beer Advocate, WI, & New Glarus

Terroir isn't limited to wine. Right. Dilute the concept till it's Miller Lite pale, and you can apply it to beer. Co-opting is fun! Co-opting? I mean, it's French, so I guess I could translate it to something English to make it feel less like a wine word, but is beer not an agricultural product to...

Re: Beer Advocate, WI, & New Glarus

I hear of people outside of WI go nuts for it. Am I the philistine? In-state, too. People like what they like. If you don't like New Glarus, that's the way it is. But you're almost certainly in a minority. The things people like about New Glarus are clean brews, balanced flavors, and yes, the fact ...

Re: Low Sodium Recommendations

Just chiming in to say you can make microwave popcorn by buying regular old popcorn kernels, putting a third of a cup in a brown paper lunch sack -- splash of oil or melted butter optional -- crimping the bag a few times to keep everything contained, and setting the microwave for 90 seconds. You may...

Gah, open this week's Isthmus, and there's yet another fleshy photo to offend the eyes.

Oh and there's another Silk ad in the back, too.
