Step back wit’ yo’ good foot one time up in here, hmm, hmm, hmm, Torn Slatterns and Nugget Ranchers

The big game
The big game this weekend in college football is the #1 Ohio State Buckeyes against the #2 Michigan Wolverines in the game that features the two worst team nicknames since the U.C. Santa Cruz Banana Slugs faced off against the U.C. Irvine Anteaters in water ballet.

What, in god’s name, is a Buckeye? Isn’t it just a deformed acorn? And has anyone, anywhere, ever seen a Wolverine? Isn’t a Wolverine just a weasel with a publicist?

The two best team nickname matchup? Why USC versus Oregon State, of course. How can you not like the Trojans versus the Beavers?

Almost did it
Insiders say the real reason Britney Spears is divorcing Kevin Federline is that Britney feels threatened by the vast talent K-Fed exhibited in his rap CD . . hah, hah, hah. Shoot, I knew I couldn’t say that with a straight face.

Since you asked:

This week’s cornball clang, clang, clang line on “Studio 60”?

“Is it dangerous?”

“How would you like to be in Taliban controlled Afghanistan with an American flag on your shoulder building a school’?

Don’t get me wrong, I like the show but they got some real corn-ballers flying around in that thing.

Add a new staple to the Lex itinerary of recipes: Grilled Meatloaf Sandguido (Sandwich)

This is from Sam the Cooking Guy.

The meatloaf is the pretty normal recipe of ground sirloin, bread crumbs, an egg, garlic powder, cumin, salt pepper. But you also add diced green chili’s and some Worcestershire sauce. (I will never, ever, be able to spell that without looking it up)

You bake the meatloaf at 350 for 43 minutes which leaves it just a touch underdone. Then you slice it into thick slabs, slather it with your own barbeque sauce, pop it on a hot grill until it has grill marks, slice those slabs into thinner slices and serve on toasted sour dough bread with mayo, tomatoes and lettuce.

Perfect for a crisp, Fall football game featuring a deformed acorn and a snotty weasel with an attitude problem.
