Sports Bar Super Bowl Shift

The idea of having hundreds of drunk people showing up in the same place at the same time in a restaurant is a terrible idea.  This past sunday was the almighty for football fanatics and, disregarding the ridiculously warm temps for February in Central Oregon and the chances to have an awesome cookout with friends and family, people came in masses to my place of work only to shove their fat faces full of fried food plates.  Sure, good for business, we all get to work another day, but why on earth choose french fries, potato skins, fish tacos, mozzarella sticks, fried mushrooms, 1/2 pound burgers with fries on them and wings, on top of all the heavy beers?  Because no one says it's not okay, oh, and broccoli doesn't taste nearly as good, obviously.

On another note I've been turned on to Current TV, a channel that shows some really great stuff, some not so much.  One show however is great and I think everyone should watch it if you want to learn more about where your food comes from, specifically meat. It's called Kill It, Cook It, Eat It, and it's great.  Go to the farm, pick out your prey, and do what the title says.  Kill it, cook it, and eat it!  Ranging from hamburgers to kebabs the show goes through the entire process of what it takes to make a living thing turn into a patty on a bun or a hunk o' meat on a stick.  For those that are queasy, and I know who you are because I only have two people interested in reading this thing anyways, this show is not for you.  But I think it should be.  Educate yourselves, especially when it's about things going into your mouth.  : )
