Great. Absolutely fantastic post. One of the funniest I've read. And so, so, so sadly true.

Nicely done.

Awesome!!! Here's to a perfectly grilled steak!

After the first paragraph I’m thinking, ok, this could still turn in to SF totally turning his doom and gloom around with some great Food/Red Sox analogy. Middle of the second paragraph and I still like the story but now I’m wondering when will this turn in to something that’s related to our beloved team? Finishing the third paragraph, I say to me self, ok, nothing about the Sox, but I’m going to go have dinner with you and Terry again tonight and maybe it will be different, maybe the Sox will turn it around tonight.

Who does Wallace Shawn play in the movie version?

Wow, very well done SF (no pun intended), comparing Sox pitchers to souffles and shortribs. Hopefully, writing this piece was theraputic for you because I can literally see your blood pressure rise through the computer screen whenever the issue of Tito's deciding when/or when not to give Sox pitchers the hook comes up.

One question though: Why wasn't Ron Jeremy invited?

Ok, I lied, two questions: Where was the night when Tito asked the food if it was done?

He's currently playing for the Yanks. It would be akward.

Mmmmm. Short ribs.


Souffle problems, huh? That's funny. My friend Joe always knows exactly how to close out a meal. Been doin' it the same way for about a decade, and it almost always ends well. Sometimes he overdoes it with the third course—he has a habbit of relying on the same mediocre recipes that have been around forever—but it's hard to complain about a guy who spends his day working for a guy who makes Gordon Ramsay look like Mister Rogers.

Didn't you have a similar experience eating at Grady's a few years back?

Grady's place got shut down by the authorities - health code violations. Stopped going there gladly.

this post would be very appropos if we were talking about grady little. or ken macha. or eric wedge. i don't think francona is in the same group.

but we've gone around about this already.

this post is about SF's complicated relationship with Terry. SF would not even entertain an offer of dinner from any of those other managers. Their food stinks.

Eric Wedge I hear tried to put out a grease fire during one of his shindigs a while back. Used a gasoline can to do it. Big mess.

Inexplicably, he did the same thing two nights later, then just let the fire burn itself out on the stove.

I'm going to start calling Beth "Tito's Bodyguard". Everytime Francona gets criticized or razzed over here she pops in to defend him. Cracks me up. But hey, good on you Beth, I'd defend Torre if I thought he was getting unfairly attacked.

Paul you just made me laugh so hard w/your Eric Wedge and gasoline line.

Oy, Beth. Laugh a little.

beth, have you talked to any Phillies fans?

BY: the problem is that Beth ALWAYS thinks Terry is being unfairly attacked. Even in overtly humorous posts rife with food metaphors in which Tito is described as a chef who is "better than most".

I know SF, she's super sensitive about anything said about Francona.

You wanna try these ribs? They're real good, reaaal good. They reaaly know how to get the job done, yeah. And they're sooooo good when you need them to be. Real good.

Torre hasn't cooked a meal in years. He's been phoning in the orders for a while. We're waiting for Chez Girardi to open in the Spring of 2007.
