Giant Hamburger

Atlas Cheeseburger
Clinton Station Diner - Clinton, NJ
This cheeseburger is made with three pounds of beef and a hell of a lot of cheese on a delicious, buttery bun.  If you can eat it in 45 minutes, it's free.  There's no way on earth that is happening, but it's reasonably priced for the size, and it's very tasty.

The Team To Beat

Jimmy Rollins
Shortstop - Philadelphia Phillies
At a media luncheon, Phillies shortstop Jimmy Rollins named the Phillies as the team to beat in the division.  It seems to have ruffled the feathers of Mets fans, who seem to believe that winning the 2006 NL East makes them the automatic favorite in 2007.

With a rotation of Freddy Garcia, Brett Myers, Cole Hamels, Adam Eaton and Jamie Moyer, and a potent lineup that includes Ryan Howard, Jimmy Rollins, Chase Utley, Pat Burrell and Aaron Rowand, I think our shortstop is right.  The time is now for the Philadelphia Phillies (photo source: Philadelphia Inquirer - 1/24/2007).

Gendo In The Yard

We rescued Gendo from the pound.  At the time, he was all skin and bones and he had difficulty breathing.  The vet put him on prednisone which helps him to breathe without coughing, but he's gained a lot of weight as a side-effect. He's a very happy cat who likes to run and play and lay out in the sun.  He's the only cat I've ever seen who can be let outside in the back yard and he stays right there.
