The other night the GF and I had dinner with Jumpin' Joe and his wife K at Bhabi's Kitchen up on Devon, the place we ended up going when we found Hema's Kitchen was closed. Bhabi's is byob as well and Bhabi (pronounced Bobby) is ever present. He's just so damn nice and helpful. I should have taken pictures, but I forgot. My bad. Next time. And there WILL be a next time. Everything just seems sooooo good and Bhabi will tell you what's special about every dish. When he came up to take our order, he remembered what GF had the last time we were there (well over a month ago). He's quite the character if you take the time to talk to him and ask his opinion.
Latest in the "My Life is Awesome And I'm Above the Law" screwups from the NFL is Reggie Williams, a wide receiver from Jacksonville. Nice job multi-millionaire. Dumb-ass. First DWI and now getting tasered and caught carrying coke. How to kill your career in two steps.
And finally, the Cubbies won their opener!! Yay!!! Just wanted to say that while I really like the way this team sets up, I disagree with Lou's lineup. We'll compare:
|Lou's lineup||My Lineup|
|A. Soriano lf||R. Johnson cf|
|K. Fukudome cf||M. Fontenot 2b|
|D. Lee 1b||M. Bradley rf|
|M. Bradley rf||A. Ramirez 3b|
|A. Ramirez 3b||A. Soriano lf|
|M. Fontenot 2b||D. Lee 1b|
|G. Soto c||G. Soto c|
|R. Theriot ss||R. Theriot ss |
|C. Zambrano p||C. Zambrano p|
How Lou could put Fukudome in the two slot is beyond me. He was awful playing for Japan and hasn't done any better when he reported to the Cubs. He went 0-4 and hit into a double-play. D.Lee struggled last year and I'd like to take the pressure off of him and move him down in the order. Bradley wants to prove his worth in his new town, so move him up. Plus his OBP is stellar. There are a lot of good lineups that you could make with that talent and I think Lou picked a weaker one.
