cold hard football facts

The Trolls at CHFF have strong opinions about beer, food and football. They are funny, self-deprecating and vulgar.  The discussion of beer is comprehensive and insightful, the suggested recipes are so mouth-watering they are prefaced with health warnings,  but it is their original analysis of football that makes them unique.

CHFF’s Quality Rankings consider only games teams play against teams with winning records–they make a good case that this is the best predictor of future success. Whether CHFF is right or wrong, it is consistently the most passionate, provocative and readable analysis of football on the web.

Good Eats Fan Page

Alton Brown’s Good Eats show is on the Food Network cable channel about twice a night. It’s funny, scientific and very practical. Alton has a large following of devoted fans, but none as dedicated as “MikeMenn,” the author of the Good Eats Fan Page website. He provides illustrated transcripts of every episode, from The Pouch Principle (poaching in parchment paper) to Tender is the Loin (Steak au Poivre). The transcripts are a lot more useful and detailed than the recipes on the Food Network channel.
