Food Fight

Give Beer A Chance

Dumping beer on a baseball player is as American as mom, apple pie and preemptive war.

We dumped bombs on Iraq, and no ones been charged. So why are we picking on Johnny Macchione, who's been charged with a misdemeanor.

It's been a rough couple weeks for beer. All we are saying is give beer a chance.

A white cop, black professor and the president of the United States of America required beer to find common ground.

Now an over-paid athlete is pissed off because a drunk fan acted stupidly. By the way, am I allowed to say he acted stupidly, even though I don't know all the facts?

Maybe I should apologize: I could have calibrated my words differently. There, are you happy, bitch!

To make amends, I would like to formally invite Shane Victorino and Johnny Macchione to Joey's Brickhouse for a beer summit, where everyone in the restaurant is encouraged to throw beer at each other, and two seconds later, get the hell over themselves.

Hey, what do you expect from a blog called "Food Fight."
My Recipe For Beer Can Chicken:

  • Marinate over night a whole kosher chicken in your favorite beer with smashed garlic, cracked peppercorn, a drizzle of virgin olive oil, cilantro, a lemon cut in half and paprika
  • Lite up a charcoal grill with wood chips, get it cranked up, smoking good & hot
  • Crack open a can of PBR and put chicken cavity over the top of the can
  • Sprinkle the bird with parmesan cheese and kosher salt, set beer can chicken on grill
  • In about 15 minutes, the beer will begin to steam and the grill will impart smokey flavors while the yeast in the beer will keep the chicken tender and juicy
  • Give it about about 30 to 45 minutes
  • Dump beer down your throat and get over yourself for a lifetime of acting stupidly

Back in the Bronx during the Subway Series when the Brooklyn Dodgers and the New York Yankees were duking it out, nobody ever threw a beer at a player on the field! Rocks, sticks and old hubcaps were the order of the day! We were smart back in the Bronx. We saved the beer for ourselves!!!

You were smart in the Bronx. You were smart in Highland Park. And then...you made the dumbest move ever...helped open Joey's Brickhouse!

You were smart in Highland Park. You were smart in New York City. And then, you made the dumbest move ever...moving back to Chicago to help open Joey's Brickhouse!

In college I poured beer down Gail's blouse. Big deal!!!It was not a misdemeanor. It was funny

Gail looked hot with Goose Island on her blouse. That was the night we got hitched! It was a winning formula: beer + titties = LOVE.

Always had a thing for The Wrong Gail. She was a MILM: Mother I'd Like To Marry!

Greg, Can you get the name and address of any of the Town Hall protestors? I would like to write to them on your blog. Look at their faces. They express hate and racism. They have no clue about the details of the health care proposal. If you can't, how about going after the hate monger congressmen and women.
