Four great grillmasters are up for the grand prize of Ultimate BBQ Master Chef this morning.
A brand new BBQ and some swag from the Podollan Pub is up for grabs to the winner (who will be drawn at random from our four weekly winners).
The boss tried to have me set up the BBQ for the winner, however it ended up similar to this.

At the Reading Festival recently Dave Grohl dedicated These Days to “two friends who couldn’t be here tonight, Krist and Kurt”. So awesome.
Also it was just revealed that he is #3 on the list of richest drummers behind just Ringo Starr and Phil Collins at $225 million.
Dave, do you need a new best friend ’cause I can totally be your Millhouse?
Today’s Bonus Code: FOR KRIST AND KURT

This gentlemen’s name is Malik. He is looking for love. A very specific kind of love.
Here is a poster he put up listing his wants and needs in a companion.
Now if you think that is crazy, here is a poster of his from a couple years back. His tastes haven’t changed much but he has gotten a little more open minded to older women.
Someone should probably tell Malik about the internet.

Yesterday Felix Hernandez of the Seattle Mariners threw a perfect game. His stuff yesterday was absolutely filthy and he threw this gem in front of a home crowd which is great because at least they will have a memory of King Felix before he becomes a Yankee.
This is such a rare sporting feat.
There are almost 5000 games of baseball played every year and considering that baseball has been around for over 100 years, the fact that there have only been 23 perfect games is incredible.
More people have orbited the moon than have thrown a perfect game.

So apparently the Olympic Village in London was where the real Olympics were happening. A sexual decathlon so-to-speak.
American soccer goalie Hope Solo was asked how many athletes are sexually active during the games and she said “70 to 75 percent”.
I suppose that is why 150,000 condoms were handed out in the athlete village.
But I am sincerely hoping that in the Canadian Olympic village this practice of safe sex was discouraged.
Why would we not want our best athletes and role models having babies with each other creating an entirely new generation of super athletes?
Let’s take that a step further by saying our Olympic committee should have been encouraging our athletes to hook up with Gold Medalists.
“You, go track down Phelps. You, go find Bolt and give him a little how’s your father. Now guys, you go whoo Hope Solo. You? Hmmmm how about 11 time medalist Natalie Coughlin.”
This is a strategy that the Own the Podium may want to consider for some long term sustainability.

Jaws is one of my favorite movies of all time. It terrified the bejesus out of me when I was a kid.
The plot of the film still holds up to this day but it would be safe to say that the quality of picture hasn’t stood the test of time.
But a new restoration for blue-ray will hopefully bring a new legion of fans to the movie.
