Nice column by Chris Snow in the Globe today on the issue of the new amphetamine penalties in baseball. I'm not convinced that the steroid penalty changes will have much effect, given that the league can't do blood tests and a lot of modern performance-enhancing drugs can only be detected that way. But I'll be interested to see what players decide to do here--particularly since the first-level penalty is "more testing."
Couple of random things I can recommend:
Peets Holiday Blend coffee. Excellent and well-balanced, and one of the few coffees that claims to have chocolate notes where I would actually agree with the assessment.
Bruegger's pumpkin cream cheese. Nice flavor, not too sweet. Pairs very nicely with their excellent whole wheat bagels.
