I have nothing to report this morning, so let’s clean out the email inbox before the end of the year

• Ryan W. explains how to get a crust on your rib roast:

Rib Roast

This will accommodate 8-10 pounds 

1/4 cup whole peppercorns (then grind them)

1/4 cup garlic powder 

1/4 cup of sea salt

4 tablespoons of garlic salt (can be omitted if you do not like extra garlic flavor)

1 tablespoon of celery salt

2 tablespoons of seasoning salt

2 tablespoons of paprika (if you’re oven roasting substitute smoked paprika)

Always season and let it sit in the refrigerator 24 hours before cooking. 

Cooking

I don’t like to over smoke rib roast so I cook it faster 350 for about 2 hours. Besides it’s tender enough so long cook times don’t accomplish much. I pull it at 115 and let it rest for 20 minutes and it comes out perfectly medium-rare. 

Oven-roasted is 350 for about 2 hours again pull at 115 and let it rest for 20. 

Both smoking and oven are great. 

• I have to apologize to Bill C. who sent in his Army-Navy game report earlier this month and I just flat out missed it.

Bill has the floor:

Dear TNML Commissar Kinsey, sorry for the late submission. I just got back home late last night. The Army vs Navy game was a patriotic experience wrapped around an American football game. Words alone can not describe the experience. It’s something best described by being there yourself. Everything from the pre-game march on by both academies, both teams running onto the field, the halftime show, and finally to the post-game alma maters sung by both teams and cadets/midshipmen. It’s something that every red-blooded American football fan should take in at least once.

The pre-game march on has each academy taking turns parading every cadet/midshipmen in formation by regiment/brigade out onto the field. All the while recognizing the leader of each unit by name and hometown. It started at noon and took about an hour so you had about 2 hours till kickoff when they finished. That’s when the runs on the food concessionaires start. Those cadets and midshipmen work up appetites. The weather wasn’t bad for December in New Jersey but it did prevent the parachute teams for both academies from bringing in a game ball before kickoff.

However, the F-18 super hornets that did a flyover when Navy took the field and the chinooks that followed them when Army took the field made up for it. I wasn’t sure what exactly halftime might bring since neither academy has a real college football-sized marching band. They ran Lee Greenwood out there singing God Bless the USA with fireworks blasting away and it was more moving than I ever remembered hearing it before and I heard him sing it at halftime of the 1986 Sugar bowl between Tennessee and Miami, 35 years ago.

The game itself was back and forth and was more than 3 yards and a cloud of dust like the old days instead of the HUNH offenses of today. Because of that, the game was finished in a little over 3 hours instead of the 4-hour games you have on a regular basis now. Once finished, the losing squad goes and sings the alma mater to/with their fellow students first and the winning squad goes second. Hence, one of the game themes for each is to “sing second” which signifies victory.

While most everyone there for either academy has gear on representing the school or something themed Go Army beat Navy or vice versa, it’s very collegial between the fans. Being a former cadet or midshipmen or parent of one carries with it an understanding of the rigors of being a student at either academy. Being a student at either means you are held to a higher standard than any other college-aged student both academically and physically.

This is the ONLY day of the year where it’s an us against them mentality and they will quickly tell you they are on the same team the other 364 days of the year. This is such an extreme polar opposite from life in the SEC where hatred and dislike abound 364 days of the year and twice as bad on game days (or like Michigan and Ohio State). Maybe one of the most satisfying aspects of the day was all of the cadets and midshipmen I encountered and spoke to. They came from all over the country and couldn’t have been more polite and courteous. This helps me sleep better at night knowing the future of our country is in their hands.

As a bonus, my friend whose son is a cadet took me up to West Point Sunday afternoon. That place oozes history. Statues of former generals, Trophy Point overlooking the Hudson, buildings named after American military heroes, the parade field, Michie Stadium, subliminal messages everywhere saying Army beat Navy. The academy was founded in 1802 so we’re talking over 200 years of history here. It’s less than an hour north of NYC and I would encourage anybody passing through the area to take time out and spend it there. You won’t regret it.

Saw the Screencaps confirmation on the woke bracket this morning, and wanted to make one more plea for another bracket – the IG model bracket challenge. This came up when I was texting some buddies last fall and asked them whether they’d take Hilde, Hannah Palmer, or the field. Would likely be some work I realize, but would also generate some buzz too!

Sounds like you and your crew had a great Christmas and I wish you a very Happy New Year! Go Bearcats and Go Bengals!

I’d be up for an Instagram Model bracket, but I need help from you guys suggesting the contestants. Hilde and Hannah Palmer get in, but I need more suggestions on the cream of the crop.

Along with Poison, Motley Crue, etc., John Madden was the soundtrack of my youth. I’ve been missing him since he left the booth. I’ll be missing him a little more now. RIP Coach. Thank God for YouTube and The Replacements.

P.S. I’ll bet you never thought you would hear Poison, Motley Crue, and John Madden spoken in the same breath, have you?

• Michael L. in Charleston, SC sent in this link:

Like everyone else, I love what you’re doing with Screencaps.  Since you’re an Ohio guy, I thought you would find this article interesting.  I assume you’re not old enough to remember the big Cleveland bank heist of 1969 but it’s a pretty cool story.  

Secret fugitive: Thomas Randele, whose real name was Ted Conrad, told family he was wanted bank robber in ‘deathbed confession – ABC7 San Francisco (abc7news.com)

Thanks for making mornings better.

I did read the story of the guy who revealed himself on his deathbed. My big question about this story is how his wife never thought something was up when the guy didn’t have any family. So they got married and lived a life and she never found it weird that there was never any interaction with the guy’s family?

I’m not saying the wife was harboring a fugitive. I’m just saying it seems weird that she never thought it was strange that her husband had zero family.

• Dave M. sent in a link where a company CEO has been hit with a lawsuit stating that he forced his male employees to hit up strip clubs and brothels during work trips.

https://news.yahoo.com/ceo-made-employees-visit-strip-211916197.html

“During that Ohio business trip, Trbovich is accused of forcing the worker who filed the lawsuit to ‘stand guard’ outside a tent while Trbovich had sexual intercourse with the female contractor “to whom he had been ‘bonded’ in the pagan ceremony,” according to the complaint,” the Miami Herald reported.

Sounds like a wild place to work.

Look, I don’t know anything about this case, but it sounds like this could be a case where the worker could’ve been caught by a wife who was furious over all of this conduct. Again, it’s just a hunch. I’m thinking the wife gets pissed, the worker turns on his boss to cover his own ass and now you have a lawsuit.

Just a hunch. Could be completely wrong.

• Let’s go out there and have a great final Thursday of 2021. Tomorrow I’ll have my final thoughts on 2021 and all that we’ve been through around here. Get your meats, get your booze, get your cheeseballs, shrimp, kielbasa, sauerkraut, etc.

  1. Love Alexandra O’Laughlin but she needs to build up her thigh muscles just a little bit.
    The Army-Navy game does give one hope for the future. Attended one in Philly a few years ago and it’s wonderfully patriotic. Gotta say the winter capes the Cadets wear are cool as hell. As far as Milley is concerned, fuck that woke cocksucker.
