TOYS AND GAMES: Lobstah, Rousey, Coffee, Fenway Park

When in Rome, do as the Romans, right?

Food translation: When in certain regions of the country, eat the food they are famous for. In other words, eat Mexican food in the Southwest, red meat in the Midwest, etc. Which brings me to New England.

Lobster RollFollowing my theory for making the right choice when dining out on the road, I chose to order a lobster roll while in Newton, Mass., just outside of Boston.

Basically that bad boy came fully loaded with “lobstah,” no filler, and little mayonnaise. I’m still tearing up thinking about that roll.

Ronda Rousey’s legend continues to grow after she took care of business Saturday night with a TKO win over Bethe Correia in the main event of UFC 190 in Rio de Janeiro. Now everybody wants to know who Rousey’s next opponent will be. May I suggest she go to D.C. and begin with a line of opponents from the Senate. After she finishes whipping ass there, move on to the House of Representatives. I would pay to watch this, though I’ve got to admit it has a Christians vs. Lions sort of appeal.

Coffee brings a wealth of healthy benefits to coffee drinkers according to a butt load of studies. However, now they’re saying that those whose consumption is greater than a cup or two a day have a greater risk of Mild Cognitive Impairment.

It appears I’m in trouble.

Heard inside the Fenway Park press box dining area when a touring father walked his young son around the facility:

“Look.” The boy pointed to the snack machine.

The father rolled his eyes: “We go to Fenway Park and that’s what he loves, the snack machine.”

Obviously unmoved by his father’s sarcasm, the boy observed: “I love snacks.”
