As I mentioned in my first post, my three great hobbies are food, pitying fools, and video games. And it is in relentless pursuit of that third hobby that, for over a decade, I and a group of my friends have gathered, each Monday, to kick each other's asses. And eat. It didn't start out with the eating. It originally started out after dinner. But my friend Drew, who these days cooks up a storm and now keeps our shared pig in his freezer, would frequently, in those early early years, show up without having eaten. Anticipating this, I started cooking a little extra for him.
