Bacon == <3

Here's something my wife recently started doing and it is jawesome.

Bacon Cooking Tips and Hints - How to cook bacon.: "Bacon can also be easily baked in the oven, resulting in amazingly flat slices. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Place a rack inside a baking sheet. Lay out slices and bake for 10 to 15 minutes, depending on desired doneness level. Voila! Crispy bacon with no curls. You can also use your broiler, but I don't recommend it. First of all, the splatters not only make a royal mess, but also cause flares. Secondly, it requires much more attention. Stick with frying, microwaving or baking. "

Manitowoc Ultimate: VENI. VIDI. VICI.

I'm riding a little higher today due to the fact that our Manitowoc Ultimate squad beat a Sheboygan squad last night, 15-9. It was a friendly match, but it was pretty obvious that our players had a bit more experience. We jumped out to a 7-1 lead, then saw them score 4 in a row before taking the half 8-5. We basically then scored 2-for-1 in the second half to take the game. Our lone gal, Megan Molteni, played the entire game and was huge throughout.

I personally played like my old out-of-shape self. I'd cut and sprint the length of the field twice and then jog/walk for about 4 times that. I keep whispering to myself "keep running, keep running" but the fact is I'm out-of-shape and have shamefully done very little to do anything about that (other than twice-weekly Ultimate).

I did throw a sweet hammer but the receiver got a bad read and drifted the other way. I also caught the final point and therefore claim sole responsibility for the entire victory. LOOK ON MY WORKS, YE MIGHTY, AND DESPAIR.
