There’s a huge flare-up today over the video just leaked to TMZ showing Ray Rice punching his then-fiancée Janay Palmer in the face in an elevator and knocking her unconscious. People are calling for Ray Rice to be released, calling out the Ravens for glossing over the incident and victim-shaming,…

I’ve been outraged about the incident from the jump and have posted about it several times on social media. The moment you saw Ray Rice dragging Janay Palmer out of the elevator you knew exactly what happened. The real shame of the matter is how the Ravens handled it throughout the process. Their conduct was shameful and far from congratulating them on finally doing the right thing we should take them to task for only doing so when forced to. I think the reason myself and so many others cranked up the rage machine today was that we were given opportunity to right what had clearly been an egregious wrong. I’m sure I annoyed many by incessantly tweeting about it but it had to be done until the league and or team corrected the situation. Now the focus needs to be on the local police department and district attorney. How in the hell did he get off without a felony charge for this?

Mrs. Harbaugh must be proud

She has two sons who coach professional football teams. In the last month both of her boys have publicly rationalized the fact that one of his players physically abused a woman. One of the players was caught on video beating his fiancée unconscious in an elevator. The other punched his pregnant girlfriend in the face. Both Jim and John Harbaugh went out of their way to minimize the violence and excuse the players disgusting, unforgivable actions. The Harbaugh men enabled spousal abuse. Their mother must be so proud.

Tried an entirely new method today, going back to the basics.  I’m becoming obsessive about baking bread.  Going to bake a thousand loaves until I become the Hattori Hanzo of home bread bakers.  I look forward to cracking this loaf open and seeing how I did.  What does the crumb look like, how is the taste, texture?  What is the crust to crumb ratio?  I will enjoy every step of this journey.

That is some seriously niche porn.

Black tomatoes are the so-called super vegetable among the first in the world that contains anthocyanin – an antioxidant that may help in the battle against cancer that kills cancer cells. The Unusual color of tomatoes comes from a pigment that turns tomatoes black when exposed to sunlight.


Don’t know about curing cancer but we’ve been getting black tomatoes at the farmer’s market this summer and they are frigging delicious.
