If horses gallop, do seahorses scallop?

Seriously, the biggest insult is that the Kings will be going to the Stanley Cup Finals in a year where they barley had any business being in the playoffs in the first place.  For the past three years, the Sharks were expected to get far in the playoffs.  I’ll give them some credit: they made it to the Western Conference Finals for the second and third times in three seasons.  And despite this, the Sharks haven’t even been to the Stanley Cup Finals.  We will be the only Californian team who hasn’t been there.  This wouldn’t be so bad if Dean Lombardi just lived up to his reputation and continued to make terrible moves.

So I’ve been finding the recipes on AllRecipes to be getting boring.  So time for a new site: Epicurious!  It seems a little more high end.  This seemed to be confirmed by the recipe I decided to go over:

Homemade pizza dough: Avoid the Noid.

The sad part of the Kings probably getting to the Stanley Cup Finals is that I don’t really have confidence in the Devils or the Rangers that they can beat LA.  Considering how stacked the Rangers are, they should be the ones dispatching other teams in 4-5 games instead of 6-7.  The Kings are an 8th seeded team, eliminated the #1 seed in their conference in 5 games, the #2 seed in 4 games, and if they win today, the #3 seed in 5 games.  They are ridiculous and Dean Lombardi is ridiculously lucky.  That guy would be looking for a job if it weren’t for the Mike Richards/Jeff Carter trades and Darryl Sutter fixing the Noid– I mean Dustin Penner.  Down with Lombardi, up with Doug Wilson.

So I posted to my Facebook page the other day about how pizza from a restaurant almost never disappointing and frozen pizza almost always disappointing me.  This poses a conundrum as always: how do I eat pizza without spending too much money on restaurant pizza and how eat a disc shaped pile of puke from a frozen cardboard box?  So like all of my life’s issues, I’m resolving it by learning to cook and/or bake.

Cheesesteak: You didn’t tell me how good the cheese was!

Man, it looks more and more like the Los Angeles Kings are going to go to the Stanley Cup Finals.  And even worse, they’ll probably win too.  This is infuriating mostly because their General Manager (Dean Lombardi) and their head coach (Darryl Sutter) both were on the Sharks and we fired them.  Neither of those guys are supposed to be winning let alone talented with another team.  Doug Wilson for life ya’ll.

Another thing I’ve been having a lot of lately has been Cheesesteaks.  Making them at home won’t help with my health at all, but at least it should help save me money.
