Mailbag, Oct. 13, 2007

The mustard debate continues. Last night, even though the Indians were in Boston getting it handed to them by the Red Sox, Cleveland Jeff was at a party in Jacobs Field. He still swears Stadium Mustard and Ball Park Mustard are one and the same. He sent the photos at the right, which show Bertman's atop a dog which he forced himself to eat in the name of research. But I still think there are two brands, both good, one having been the team's spread of choice back in old Municipal Stadium and Bertman's riding in when the move was made to the Jake back in '94. Another authority, Rich the Killer Cameraman, came late to the debate, but he has also offered to do some on-site experimentation when he's working the games next week.

If you have an opinion on this, let me know.

I heard from a few new friends this week including another bbq blogger, yankeebbq, who does the Barbecue Odyssey site. It would seem odd for someone with "yankee" in their screenname to give a shout out to the Red Sox, but he did, and that's okay. Anyone who likes bbq and baseball is okay by me. Also had first time visits from carolshmarol (great name), who writes The Bible Thumper's Soapbox, a thoughtful personal reflection on Christianity. Peteej from Me and My GPS Camera Phone Blog was drawn in by last week's Banana Pudding post and its reference to Southern Culture on the Skids. Pete's blog is pretty terrific - great photos illustrating, among other things, that you can do more with less. I'm glad all of you stopped by and I'm looking forward to spending more time on your blogs, too.
