The Daily GLOB


Happy Tuesday!


GLOBmaster2017Good morning GLOBers and happy National Martini Day. To quote the GLOB Master's  long time English pal PJ VonBokland, "There is nothing  more civilized than a sophisticated Martini."  And a stiff drink might be a good accompaniment for today's win-or-go-home Florida Worlds Series baseball game against the Texas Longhonrs at 3:00. According to Gator Head Coach Kevin O'Sullivan, "We made some other mistakes that don't show up in the box score. We were down four in the seventh. We put a take on, with the leadoff hitter, and we're down four. And we swung out of the zone. And if he gets on, [Nelson Maldonado's] home run is a three-run homer instead of two-run homer. It gets us within one run. Obviously, there in the ninth, we struck out the lead off hitter and he gets on and reaches on a strikeout, and he ends up scoring. Those little mistakes, they add up, and it cost us a few runs." GO GATORS!

Falafel King

The GLOB's Lynn Dirk wanted a Falafel king falafel - those wonderful bundles of mashed chick peas green with crushed parsley.  "My friend saw Turkish coffee on the menu and excitedly placed an order.  We decided to split a Greek salad, a falafel platter, and baklava for dessert with Turkish coffee." - READ MORE
