Seriously.. Was this destined to go over well?? Really?

There needs to be a section around Montreal where there are still a ton of fans for the Nationals. I also guarantee that the Astros area extends well into Texas where Rangers are noted. Same thing with the Cardinals into Missouri, and a lot more of Illinois. Heck I know a ton of Cardinals baseball fans, and I live in Texas.

Lots more Dodgers and Phillies fans than shown, too. I know I knock it, but yet I posted it. It's still pretty accurate. You get the idea. Anyone wanna do one of these for football?? NBA??

Why can't they just "plug it up", or turn it off?? Maybe I'm ignorant to oil drilling, but hey if some type of machine is running out of control, don't you just turn it off? Or if there's a faucet leak, don't you improvise in the meantime by collecting the water in a big bowl? Find a damn temporary solution already!


The 90 Best Cartoons Of All Time

Very craftily created over at Now That's Nifty Dot Blogspot Dot Com, this is an incredible list of all the great cartoons we grew up with, as well as some of the awesome ones we're used to from the more recent past.

I think just about everyone has a soft spot for cartoons. There is a wide variety out there, each with something to offer.

I've compiled a list of what I believe to be the 90 best cartoons, ever. If you don't agree with my list, I don't care, get your own list. If I forgot some, I appologize, there are a lot of cartoons out there. It is important to note that I honestly could move some of these up or down in the rankings, even the top ones. Never the less, here they are:

45. Schoolhouse Rock! (1973-1986)

37. Daria (1997–2002)

34. The Jetsons (1962-1963; 1984-1985 and 1987)

10. Beavis and Butt-head (1993–1997) So dumb it's funny.

The Top 10 Marinades Every Man Must Know

The month of May is officially National Barbecue Month. That means it’s time to get your grill on. The key to good grilling is simple: good meat and bathing that meat in a delicious marinade.

A good marinade will add flavor to your favorite meat and make it more tender and juicy. Making a marinade is pretty damn simple. All you is need is three basic components. The first is an acid such as lemon juice, vinegar, yogurt, or wine. The acid is important as it breaks down the meat, tenderizing it. The second is oil. This protects and preserves the food while it is marinating and when also when it’s being cooked. The third is any herb and/or spice. This is what gives a marinade its unique flavor and zest. Feel free to experiment by grouping one or more ingredients from each component.

Here are some general guidelines for marinating:

•Meat and poultry are generally marinated for 2 hours up to 2 days.
•Seafood and fish should be marinated for no longer than one hour.
•Use a nonreactive container - steer clear of aluminum, copper, or cast iron.
•Wait for your marinade to cool down before pouring over the meat of your choice.
•Always refrigerate your meat while it's marinating.
•Never reuse marinades!

10. Coffee Marinade
Don’t throw away that half empty pot of coffee. Instead use it as a marinade. You can marinate pork chops, chicken, steak, or any game meat in coffee. Generally let the meat stand for one to three hours in your favorite cup of Joe. The coffee will give the meat a lovely smoky taste. Just remember to use cold coffee. Hot coffee will cook the meat!

1 cup strong brewed black coffee or espresso
1 ½ tablespoons Dijon mustard
2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
1 shallot, finely chopped
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
About 1 tablespoon vegetable oil, plus a little more for rubbing on the steak
2 tablespoons dark brown sugar
½ teaspoon kosher salt
¾ teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper
1 ½ to 2 pounds flank steak, trimmed of fat

Combine all the ingredients and, before adding the meat, separate ¼ of the marinade to use later for basting. Then add the meat. Let it stand in the refrigerator for at least two hours and up to 24 hours. When grilling, use the spare marinade for basting.

9. Greek Marinade
This authentic, tasty Greek marinade is a must for any backyard griller. With a touch of sourness thanks to the lemon and a sweetness brought out by oregano, it will leave your taste buds dancing, Zorba the Greek-style. The marinate suits any meat and is probably best suited to lamb.

1/4 cup olive oil
1 teaspoon finely shredded lemon peel
1/4 cup lemon juice
1 tablespoon snipped fresh oregano or
1 teaspoon dried oregano, crushed
2 teaspoons minced garlic
1/2 teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper
8 lamb rib or loin chops or chicken breast, cut 1/2 inch thick (or chicken)

Place all ingredients in a bowl, and then add meat. Refrigerate for two to four hours. Now it’s time to get a-grillin'!

8. Tandoori (Yogurt) Marinade
As its name would suggest, the tandoori marinade originated in India. What distinguishes this marinade from most others is its key ingredient is yogurt. Mostly used with chicken, this marinade is rich in flavor and bite.

5 oz. plain yogurt
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 tablespoons lemon juice, freshly squeezed
2 cloves of garlic, chopped
3 fresh red chillies, chopped
2 tablespoons fresh cilantro, chopped
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon garam masala
1 teaspoon mild curry paste
2 tablespoons red tandoori paste
1 tablespoon tomato puree
1/2 tsp salt
3 oz milk (approximate)

7. Teriyaki Marinade
This traditional Japanese marinade is widely popular and simple to make. The basic ingredient is soy sauce which sweetens and caramelizes when cooked. In Japan the marinade is mainly used for fish, though it works perfectly with all types of meat. This marinade, when reduced, also acts as a dipping sauce.

1/2 cup soy sauce
1/2 cup Japanese cooking wine
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1 clove garlic, smashed and
1 piece fresh gingerroot
1 tbsp honey
1/2 teaspoons Japanese wasabi powder or
1/4 teaspoons wasabi paste (optional)

In small saucepan, combine all ingredients. Bring to a boil and cook for a few minutes until syrupy. Remove from heat, and discard garlic and ginger. Let cool. Marinade food in about 3/4 cup of sauce for 20 minutes. When ready to cook, reheat remaining marinade and brush over food several times during cooking and once again at end of cooking to glaze.

You have to wonder whether this is a good thing or a bad thing. I guess it's a little bit of both. Either way, you'll likely never have to tweet or use FB for more toilet paper in this bathroom!

The Man In The Map

RIP Ronnie James Dio

Wow, it hasn't even been a month since we lost Peter Steele, and now this. Rock 'n' Roll has lost another legend. May he not be the last in line.


Ronnie James Dio, a singer with the bands Rainbow, Black Sabbath and Dio, whose powerful, semioperatic vocal style and attachment to demonic imagery made him one of the best-loved figures in classic heavy metal, died on Sunday morning, according to an announcement on his Web site by his wife, Wendy. He was 67.

No cause was given in the announcement, but Mr. Dio had been suffering from stomach cancer, and recently his band Heaven and Hell canceled its summer tour because of his health. The Houston Chronicle reported that Mr. Dio was being treated at a hospital in Houston.

Mr. Dio was born Ronald James Padavona in Portsmouth, N.H., and grew up in Cortland, N.Y. He began his career in rockabilly bands in the late 1950s, but by the mid-1970s, when Ritchie Blackmore, the guitarist of the British band Deep Purple, hired him to sing for his new band, Rainbow, Mr. Dio had become a heavy-metal purist, and he became known as much for his vocal prowess as for his Mephistophelean stage persona. He is widely credited with popularizing the “devil horn” hand gesture (see video clip at the end) — index and pinky fingers up, everything else clenched in a fist — as a symbol of metal’s occult-like worship of everything scary and heavy.

Mr. Dio sang about devils, defiance and the glory of rock ‘n’ roll with a strong, mean voice, punctuating his points with gale-force vibrato, a style derived in part from singers like Deep Purple’s Ian Gillan. When Ozzy Osborne was fired from Black Sabbath in 1979, Mr. Dio replaced him, and by 1983 he released the album “Holy Diver” with his own band, Dio. In various lineup configurations, the band Dio continued to release material in the mid-2000s.

In 2006 he began playing with some of his former band mates in Black Sabbath, naming the group Heaven and Hell after the title of the first Black Sabbath album on which Mr. Dio appeared. Heaven and Hell released one album, “The Devil You Know,” in 2009.

Other than his wife, no information about his survivors was immediately available on Sunday afternoon.
