Football is Back!

Just Ike’s hunch for tonight: Arizona State UNDER, South Carolina OVER.

Let’s see what happens.

 

College Games of Note:

There is not much recent performance history to go by on the opening weekend of the college football season. Lookie… here are some very interesting match-ups; many intersectional games; and a couple SouthEast Conference showdowns.

weber

Thursday, August 28, 2014

Weber State at Arizona State (-46; 67) – How good are these quarterbacks? The favored Sun Devils are a preseason top 20 team.

Texas A&M at South Carolina (-9.5; 61.5) – No Johnny Touchdown at A&M anymore. South Carolina comes in with a #9 preseason rating.

 

Friday, August 29

BYU (-16.5; 52) at UConn

Colorado State vs. Colorado (-3; 59)

UNLV at Arizona (-23.5; 60)

 

Saturday, August 30

Clemson Tigers at Georgia Bulldogs (-7.5; 55) – This is a real conference game that both teams want to win very badly. Who wants it more?

LSU Tigers (-5; 51) at Wisconsin Badgers – You’d think that the home team would have the advantage?

Ohio State at Navy (+16.5; 55) – The Buckeyes have lost their nationally-recognized quarterback for the season. Can THE OSU find a replacement with timing? Navy is in great condition.

California Golden Bears at Northwestern Wildcats (-11; 62.5) – This is not a Rose Bowl match-up but will tell us a lot about the strength of their two conferences.

#1 Florida State Seminoles (-18; 63.5) at Oklahoma State Cowboys – The Cowboys lost some great defensive players to the NFL. Can they hold the points low against the defending national champion and Heisman Trophy winning quarterback?

Food Trucks: Sam’s Chowderhouse Mobile Makes the USA Today List

Sams-Chowder-Mobile       Summer 2014

I don’t think sampling food from food trucks across the country is the best reason for taking a vacation.

It is becoming difficult to refer to food buses as “roach coaches” any more. With the advent of so many ‘Off the Track’ events where dozens of mobile-food-vendors congregate, eating from the side of a truck is en vogue.

Recently, USA Today included Sam’s Chowder House of Half Moon Bay as one of the reasons the San Francisco area has one of the ten best American regions for eating from food trucks.

Here is what the editors of USA Today came up with:

Food trucks come and go. To become overly attached to one in particular is to court heartbreak. Thankfully, cities with a strong, ongoing food truck culture are a little more permanent. Here are your best bets for 2014.

Austin: Austin is replete with food truck groupings and parks. Two of the most central (and easiest to find nearby parking) are South Austin Trailer Park and Eatery at 1311 S 1st St, featuring Holy Cacao, Conscious Cravings, and the exquisite deep-fried avocado taco at Torchy’s Taco; and the Barton Springs Road gathering with the super popular Short Bus Subs as well as Lucy’s European and Snow Beach. Other top Austin trailers include The Mighty Cone, Hey! Cupcake, Tapas Bravas, and the intriguingly named Love Balls.

Boston: A stampede of hungry college students and suited business folks keep Boston’s street food trucks humming. Standouts include The Taco Truck, serving organic tacos, tortas, sopas, and ensaladas; The Bon Me Truck’s Vietnamese bánh mì with pickled carrots, daikon, house-made pork pate, and spicy mayo on a toasted baguette; and Grilled Cheese Nation’s indulgent gourmet sandwiches with ingredients like Great Hill blue cheese, organic fig spread, and aged cheddar from Vermont.

Chicago: The Windy City was late to the game with legalizing cooking on carts and trucks, but the gloves are figuratively off and they’ve wasted no time in filling the niche. Among the new arrivals is Chicago’s famed deep-dish slice Giordano’s. Also at the forefront is The Southern Mac Truck and their sun dried tomato with smoked gouda and caramelized onion mac n’ cheese, which is already legend.

Los Angeles: No surprise here. LA’s street food scene goes way back. It’s a big city and many of these trucks are constantly on the move, but take the time to track down Grilled Cheese Truck, Border Grill food truck, The Coolhaus Truck and the famous Kogi BBQ Taco Truck, by LA chef Roy Choi. If you don’t have the energy to chase food trucks, check out Abbot Kinney’s First Fridays in Venice, where LA’s hottest food trucks gather on Abbot Kinney Blvd.

Madison: Madison has an unexpectedly satisfying street food culture centered around the university’s Library Mall and Capitol Square. Among the options are standouts Good Food, specializing in healthy wraps, salads, and soups made from fresh veggies, fruits, oven-roasted chicken, baked tofu, whole-grain tortillas, and fresh mixed greens, and FIB (aka Fine Italian Beef & Sausage), serving pretty much what you’d expect and skillfully so, having won best food cart of 2012 by a panel of freelance tasters.

Minneapolis: Food trucks were only legalized in Minneapolis a few years ago, but the speed at which the industry has expanded is breathtaking. On a typical weekday, at least 20 trucks can be found parked around central downtown alone. Seek out Stanley’s On Wheels, an extension of their Northeast Minneapolis restaurant, with items like a BBQ Beef Brisket, BBQ Pulled Pork sandwiches and Chicken Carnita Seasoned Tacos. Dandelion Kitchen has a seasonal menu featuring a duck confit sandwich and salads with organic microgreens and a selection of farm cheeses. (Note: Many Minneapolis trucks go into hibernation in winter.)

New York: Apart from personal space and, frequently, soap, New York has many good things in abundance, including wildly popular street food. This is one of the few places in the country where there’s a palpable, eclectic and enduring street food culture that could take several dedicated days to thoroughly explore. Check out stalwart Calexico, serving all manner of popular California-Mexican food, the lovingly crafted Van Leeuwen Artisan Ice Cream and the late night, sobering plate of lamb or chicken over rice with white sauce from the legendary Halal Guys on 53rd.

Portland: Portland is uniquely festooned with street food “pods,” little clusters of food trucks and carts, which sometimes include limited seating and even covered areas in the unlikely event that it should ever rain in Portland. [Cough] The fact that the sheer number of street food options in Portland required them to invent pods in the first place is just plain wonderful. Be sure to hit perennial Thai favorite Nong’s Khao Man Gai, who serves only one outstanding dish: poached chicken with rice cooked in chicken broth, served with ethereal pungeon sauce. Newcomer Burrasca, manned by a chef from Florence, serves superb, seasonal Florentine dishes.

San Francisco: Another well-deserving, no-brainer entry, scoring high on street food quality, variety and cleverness. Also, it can be so expensive to eat a sit down meal that these carts are effectively one of the city’s major saving graces. Extra points also go to the street food community’s cumulative green leaning efforts. Nearly everyone boasts some level of environmental friendliness, from compostable utensils to sourcing ingredients from local, sustainable farms. Highlights include Roli Roti’s menu of gourmet rotisserie dishes and Sam’s ChowderMobile, serving lobster rolls, seafood po’ boys and tacos and, of course, New England clam chowder.

Seattle: Rain or shine (usually rain), Seattle’s 150-some food trucks serve everything from tacos to Filipino cuisine. Barking Frog Mobile Kitchen, an extension of their restaurant, serves items like the Barking Frog Lamb Burger, Colombia River Steelhead Sandwich and their wildly popular Grand Marnier Prawns. Where Ya At Matt dishes out southern comfort food like shrimp po’ boy sandwiches, Cajun jambalaya, and authentic pecan pie and beignets for dessert. Truly unique for anywhere in the country is Off the Rez featuring Native American-inspired fare, including sweet vanilla pear butter fry bread and tacos with chicken chili verde.

 

Five More Human Senses

Man’s sensory organs are not limited to the eyes, ears, nose, mouth, and touch. Here are five more senses to know about.

Equilibrioception. The fact that you can stand and walk without falling is attributed to your sense of balance, aka equilibrioception, and is regulated by fluid in the inner ear. It works with your sense of vision to help you move around safely. Spin around repeatedly, and you throw this system off, causing dizziness and, yes, loss of balance.

referrees see no evil

Proprioception. This one is the ability to know where your body parts are without looking. So if you close your eyes and raise your hand, you know where your hand is even without looking. This sounds pointless, but without proprioception, you would have to constantly look down at your feel to be able to walk. Police test proprioception when someone is suspected of drunk driving.

Thermoception. If you sit by a campfire, you feel the heat. Grab ice out of the freezer and you feel how cold it is. Thermoceptors in your skin are what sense those changes in temperature. The ability to detect heat and cold was once rolled up under the sense of touch. However, you don’t have to physically touch something to feel the heat (coming from that campfire, for example), so thermoception is in a category of its own. Separate thermoceptors in your brain help detect and regulate changes in core body temperature.

Nociception. This is your ability to sense pain. “Nociception and thermoception are usually lumped together because, to some extent, they use the same nerve cells in the skin,” said Fuchs. You have nociceptors in your skin, bones and joints, and internal organs.

Interoception: This is an umbrella term for senses that govern our internal organs. “Your body is full of internal receptors that trigger subconscious or reflexive reactions important for your health and well-being,” according to Fuchs. These receptors perform a wide range of involuntary tasks, such as triggering a cough, controlling respiratory rate, and telling you when you’re hungry or thirsty.

Winning Attitude

It is difficult to dispute that human attitudes cause ‘stuff to happen’ and lead to ‘fate or destiny’ despite one’s knowledge, relevant skills, experience, and even wisdom. We had better realize that opportunities are not governed only by genetics, training and education, culture, faith, and spiritual ideals.

Choosing a realistic, ethical, and positive attitude can be accomplished no matter what our individual make-up, personal strengths, virtues, prior experiences, leaders, and weaknesses might be. Remember the old adage: “Mind over matter, matters.”

One problem with attitudes is that they are hard to change. One might be better off to unlearn what they have previously learned.

Change is inevitable?!?

Change in lives and the history of evolution is often hard to cope with. As Charles Darwin taught: “Survival of the fittest.” Adaptation is so important at both a micro (personal) and macro (mankind) level.

It is fun that the pro football season is restarting. Vince Lombardi was a winner who coached the first two Super Bowl Champs.

RB Frank Gore

RB Frank Gore

I am reminded that to win nominally demands a winning attitude. I cannot put my finger on the detailed factors of which team has the advantage of THE superior winning attitude. Both teams seem to have IT but only one team will prevail.

In American football, the pundits refer to execution.

No matter who wins each and every Sunday, all team members and fans would do well to adapt to the prevailing conditions and final result.

Travis – of the town’s 7-11 Grand Avenue Shop – was sighted inside this bakery before 6 a.m. Saturday. What donut variety he ordered to consume is protected by our 2nd Amendment rights. If you want to know, go ask him yourself!

 

  • Merkle displaces Barack Obama as “Leader of the Free World.” Already the combined economy with the federation of former lands of Nazi Germany and Communist Germany had supplanted the United States of America as #1 in the world. Now that Germany has won the 2014 FIFA World Cup of international soccer from the likes of South America, Prime Minister Andrea Merkle is now the most powerful political person on earth (despite the fact that the USA armed forces are superior and the Israeli intelligence community is slightly more advanced).

  • Gas-convenience store robbery Sunday, July 6, at approximately 3:45 a.m. More information to follow from Sinclair Oil. Over $2,000.00 stolen! Meanwhile, the likely robbery at one Grand Junction shop never happened.
  • Homesteaders ousted last Monday. As warned, over a dozen Americans were rousted from the “Boy Scout” camp they have been stewarding for over one year.  This was perhaps the last camp of its kind in the United States. Homesteading was very popular and socially acceptable during the first two centuries of American life. [We repeat: These nice people lost their home!]
  • Luke is no longer in critical condition. Sun-Times and The Dailey Planet Reporter “Lois Lane” writes that Luke has many injuries, has come out of a coma, and will remain in an undisclosed Denver hospital. Luke was helicoptered from Valley View Medical and Cancer Center on the night of Wednesday, July 1, following a 15 to 30-foot fall from the Grand Avenue-State Highway 82 Colorado River pedestrian bridge.

  • Joe continues his European pilgrimage. Although the Dailey Sun-Times’ Publisher was unable to travel farther east of the Rocky Mountains on June 9th, his best man Josef Paul Kocy visited Vatican City during the week of July 6th.  Nearby St. Mary’s Cathedral is pictured below (or is it on page 3?).
  • Scavenger hunt by Denver area teens proves challenging. On Saturday, July 12th, six young adults from Lakewood, Colorado, spent hours trying to figure out all the clues one of their fathers wrote up. The teens were spotted along the 700 block of Grand Avenue about 2:30 p.m. and found wandering near the 7th Street Pavilion about 8 o’clock. At that time they had completed six of the eleven tasks. This is a terrific idea; if any readers would like to write up a dozen scavenger hunt clue, The Dailey Sun-Times would happily publish it in a future issue.
  • Slope and Hatch has been a fine spot to watch the World Cup soccer this season. Their fresh ingredients on tacos and other specialties are delicious any time of the year.
  • Betting Line: Midnight Mike has already set the numbers for the opening day of the regular NFL season.
  • OMG, look at the beauty on the ceiling . . .

Not Drinking a Fifth on this Fifth

New Castle 4th of July Weekend

Our first two-and-a-half early morning hours along the Western Slope of Colorado’s New Castle Main Street gave me a truly quiet time among the Burning Mountain area earthly neighbors – birds and other varmints – after six fine hours of sleep (despite the loud freight train at 12:30 a.m.) and a special U.S.A. 4th with the city folk of nearby Glenwood Springs and thousands of tourists flocking the grounds of the Hotel Colorado (off Pine Street along the north side of the Colorado River) and Indian fabled therapeutic pools of the hot springs.

One gets a great feeling when Billy Joel’s “Honesty … is such a lonely word …” plays through thy head after a holiday of light boozing, great sandwich food, soul searching, hiking with about 200 pounds of gear, and frank discussions with Americans and world soccer fans (by the way, the East and West Germans defeated the fickle French one to nothing yesterday; therefore, the trademark rights to French Toast now belong to the German Government – Now kids must relearn how to order German Toast with butter and American-real Maple syrup; Also from the FIFA World Cup 2014, the tournament 3 to 1 favorite Brazil outlasted fellow South Americans – the Columbian drug lords – Two goals to only one official score in a very well, cleanly-played match-up).

We still love the 18 to 1 Argentinians to win it all this Sunday beginning at 2 p.m. North American Rocky Mountain Daylight Time.
