Always dressed to impressed, Phil doesn't have to look happy to look good.

Always dressed to impress, Phil doesn't have to look happy to look good.

Why so serious? Cheer up man, it’s your 64th birthday. Don’t be a sourpuss about getting old like your boy Michael Jordan. At least your still pulling in championships.


Straight outta Deer Lodge, Montana son!

Rocksoft has already professed its love for Phil Jackson, but the dude deserves recognition on his 64th. So blaze one up Phil, you got as many rings as you do fingers. Be proud.

Gluttony XI: Macarons vs. Macaroons

Posted in Food Blogs, Gluttony with tags , , , , , , , , , , on September 1, 2009 by Enrique Enfuego

IMG00137-20090831-2313French macarons are a recent addition to my life. Before it was strictly the coconut-based deli bakery-style macaroon.

Ever since this watershed moment, the two delectable pastries have been vying for my heart’s love.

I was immediately a fan of the assortment of flavors one could find with these sweet treats (Paulette in Beverly Hills provided the above dozen), but the fresh coconut in a chocolate dipped macaroon still takes the cake. Although the French are determined to win me over with their chocolate dipped macaron ice cream sandwich.

Stay tuned for further developments in this battle for one man’s heart.

Despite the Laker logo that’s still noticeable on Kobe’s shorts, these images still cause thousands to lose sleep at night.

magic johnsonYour name might be the Magic, but the real Magic resides in Los Angeles.

Tonight the NBA Finals begin and the Lakers face an unlikely, yet formidable, opponent in the Orlando Magic.

The two franchises are most commonly linked by the fact the Shaquille O’Neal played for both teams. Another link being Orlando’s team name and the name of the greatest Laker of all time. But this association is the first that comes to most people’s minds…

Bobcats Magic BasketballThe Lakers’ 12th man vs. the Magic’s most unreliable 3-point shooter immortalized by this moment of athletic intimacy.

Not only do the Lakers have the Magic on their side, they got Adam Morrison.

Things are looking up.

So Long Cheap Seats

Rockies Dodgers Spring Baseball

"That will be $99, thanks."

The only remaining semi-decent cheap seats in Dodger Stadium have now multiplied in price thanks to a promotional idea involving superstar Manny Ramirez.

The infamous left field pavilion at Chavez Ravine will now be dubbed Mannywood, because of its promixity to the left fielder. Now if you plan to sit in the left field bleachers, don’t expect to find a deal for $5, but rather $50. But it’s all good, you get a t-shirt with your purchase.

Some argue being 350 feet from home plate is no fun, while others enjoy watching Manny make errors from up close. That is why we go to Dodger games, to see Manny field, not bat…right?

Gluttony VIII: A Soupy Surprise

Posted in Gluttony with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 24, 2009 by Enrique Enfuego


Yes, it looks the same going down as it does coming back up.

Widely considered the place to go for fish and shrimp tacos, Tacos Baja in East Los Angeles is a staple of the LA taco scene.

They serve all types of seafood and one way to try them all is in the mixed seafood soup. They might as well call it “all-encompassing seafood soup” because it felt like I was on a crusade against underwater overpopulation.

From what I could gather what went down was something like this: shrimp, scallops, octopus, abalone, clams, sea snail, and a hunk of unidentifiable fish.

Throw in some of these to make it hot fire…
