I got a small pizza stone that fits my toaster oven as a result of one of these things, so they aren't all bad. Of course, I didn't have to go to the event or pay for the pizza stone so I might be biased.


Their pizza stones are nice. We have the oven-sized one.

What's really money though is the metal grilling pizza pan. It allows you to make full-sized pizzas on your outdoor grill. It's the closest I can get at home to making something that tastes like it came from a pizzeria. I prefer it to the oven pizza stone, because I've found that the oven ends up drying out the pizza a bit.

I wish my wife's friends were selling pizza stones instead of lularue, Rodan Fields, Isogenex and Norwex.

The attitude of people like Ian Kinsler who said these other countries that have the audacity to have fun playing baseball aren't playing "the right way." It's so frustrating that people want to shut fun out of a freaking game.

I'm know I'm the "get off my lawn" guy here. I think there is a happy medium with having fun and still respecting the game (I hate that term but couldn't think of another). Andrew McCutchen is my perfect example of how I (it's just my opinion) want to see players play the game. He plays with emotion and passion, he doesn't show up other players, and most importantly, he looks like he's having fun. My take on most Latin American players is that they do they same thing with some variation. I generally don't have a problem with that.

I'm guessing Kinsler hasn't watched kids play baseball a lot recently. Until they get to a certain age, they aren't imitating anyone's playing style. Unless there are ball players picking their nose (managers don't count) or making dirt angels, kids are doing their own thing. Around little league kids start imitating players but generally it's the players they like, regardless of where the players call home. I don't see kids playing an "American" style of baseball for good or bad.

If Kinsler wants to see who is ruining baseball for kids. First look to the commissioner who is making it more difficult for kids to enjoy baseball. Then look at adults who coach or watch their kids play the game. Listen to the adults at a kid's game. They are fucking black holes of negative energy. Listening to them, I wonder why any kid wants to play baseball.

We have a pizza oven on our deck. Makes fantastic pizza. It's also a great way to cook filet mignon.
