Enjoy, GO BLUE & RIP Coach Burton.
Henson often has good stuff and seems to be pretty well connected. He claims to have 2 sources on this story. In summary, Harbaugh had no problem with the departures and probably pushed them at least a bit.
He's the BEST
So, I've been doing a brined roast turkey using Alton Brown's Good Eats Roast Turkey recipe for several years (Thanksgiving and Christmas), and it's always turned out great. This year, I thought I'd take a risk by adding a slight twist. Specifically, I'm thinking of adding 1 teaspoon of jive into the brine. I've looked at various local markets (Whole Foods, Wegmans, Kroger, Fresh Market, Harris Teter) and I've not been able to find any (at least, not in food grade form).
Any ideas as to where I can get some of this by tomorrow?
Happy Birthday Jim!
Angelique Chengelis has a nice piece on Hackett's relationship with Harbaugh. It's mostly (high quality and well-written) fluff, but two quotes jump out regarding the reffing at The Game:
“I was so proud of him before the game, and I was even more proud of him after the game,” Hackett said. “I felt he was the kind of man I know him to be. He speaks his mind. I went back and watched the whole interview after the game, and if you watch the whole interview, the stream of when he speaks about being bitterly disappointed is in the flow of questions about how do you feel. This is a man who can’t lie.
He continues to say
“No threat of a fine or a detention where they’re treating an adult with a technique like they would treat him in high school. If he had been disrespectful or vile that’s different, but he was speaking his mind about how he felt. During the heat of the game, can you imagine the comment he got from an official? He competes authentically like no one I’ve ever been around. It just reinforces why we’re lucky to have him because of his authenticity and being a step ahead in the art of being a coach. We have fully realized the value that was promised.”
