  1. The Wisconsin Badgers have a very real chance of finishing this season undefeated, and still not making the College Football Playoffs (CFP). "What Will the CFP Committee Do with an Unbeaten Wisconsin?" by Heather Dinich on espn.com I think the answer to this problem is that the CFP isn't designed to get the four-best teams into the playoffs; it's designed to get the *best* team into the playoffs, and I don't think it has ever failed in that regard. --- Bonus trivia question: What is the only team (of 14 teams total) in the Big Ten Conference which is not a public school? Mouse over for the answer: Northwestern University
  2. I recently visited a client in Milwaukee and enjoyed a pretty good meal at Mo's (the steakhouse). I say "the steakhouse" because as anyone who has been to Milwaukee knows, there's also Mo's Cucina, Mo's Irish Bar and Mo's something else, all in the same little one-block area. Does anyone know the history?
  3. I stumbled upon Season 1, Episode 1 of "Making a Murderer," and was surprised at how much it sucked me in. One thing led to another, and before I know it, the entire first season, which was released on Dec 18, 2015, had been power-watched. I knew absolutely nothing about the documentary beforehand, and waited until it was over to look anything up about it at all. Now I see there will be a Season 2, and also that it is widely criticized for being one-sided and for leaving out crucial evidence, and emphasizing skewed evidence - two of the very same things it accuses the Wisconsin criminal justice system of doing. Has anyone else seen this popular series? And, if so, are there any opinions, either about the show, or the subject matter?
  4. I just noticed to my horror than neither I nor anyone else ever started an Otis Redding thread. Well, now I have. Let me say up front that I don't like, and never have, "Dock of the Bay," Otis's biggest hit which was released just weeks after his death in a plane crash. The plaintive tone of the song and the fact of the singer-songwriter's recent death are what propelled the song to the top of the charts in 1967. I think it's really a ho-hum piece of material, and it has never ceased to bother me that, contrary to what I was taught at home, it uses "dock" to mean "pier" or "wharf" --an eternal no-no, like calling "foot and mouth disease" "hoof and mouth disease", or calling Welsh rabbit "Welsh Rarebit", or saying "My name is Mr. Browne". ("They call me Mr. Browne" would be perfectly acceptable, but "Mr" is part of no one's name.) If someone cares to link to "Dock of the Bay" they may go ahead and do so, but I won't. But among my favorites:
  5. "Blazing Saddles" and "Young Frankenstein" are two of the greatest comedies I've ever seen and they both starred Gene Wilder. Mel Brooks is certainly a comedic genius, but I don't think these movies would have been nearly as good without Wilder. I think I'll give Blazing Saddles a view tonight. And then maybe watch the best skit from "Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Sex":
  6. I grew up in Lexington, Kentucky, the child of a UK faculty member. The whole family will be together in Colorado on Saturday to watch the games. It's also Passover, which puts a bit of a crimp in themed food plans. What flour and booze-free foods would you serve to represent each team? Wisconsin is easy--it must be cheese. Or cheese and brats. Michigan is probably something with cherries. Duke is far harder for us because NC 'que is all about the pork. (In our family we might opt to ignore Duke because if you grow up in Lexington, your second-favorite team is whoever is playing against Duke.) Kentucky also poses a bit of a problem because our native "snappy beer cheese" has, well, beer, and the recipe won't fare well without it. Bourbon balls are similarly off the menu for passover. I'm left with the various pies associated with the state, made without booze and with matzoh cake flour.
  7. I'm starting this thread because of a bizarre passage in the Wikipedia article on Colby Cheese. Go to the second section entitled, "Properties," and note the first sentence: "Colby is similar to Cheddar but does not undergo the cheddaring process." (Incidentally, either Wikipedia (1874) or the Wisconsin marker (1885, see below) is wrong.) Okay, this is odd to me. I thought the cheddaring process was what made cheddar, cheddar (or as my French MIL says, shay-DAHR (yes, that's honestly how they say it - the first time I heard her say it, it took me ten minutes to figure it out, and the next ten minutes to try and stop laughing)). So how can a cheese be "similar to Cheddar" without being cheddared? I promise, I'm not trying to be smug, or a "foodie douche," or anything of the sort, I honestly just don't know. Incidentally, I had a Whole Foods brand vegetarian Colby cheese slice (okay, three) tonight that wasn't all that bad. I assume by vegetarian, they mean "not using animal rennet" because this was clearly a dairy product. Wisconsin historial marker for Colby cheese
