Football Food For Fans ~ Week 8, originally uploaded by Mark K_NJ

After a questionable *football* dish last week, Mark comes back firing with something right down my alley, or palette... or whatever.

From Mark's flickr page.

Eagles/Cowboys today, so I wanted to make something with a Texas
connection. I decided to go with BBQ baby back ribs. I first simmered
the ribs for about three hours in a braising liquid. But when I took
them out of the braising to cool them off and add the homemade bourbon
BBQ sauce, the meat was already falling off the bone.

So, I made a game-time decision and instead of BBQ baby back ribs, I
pulled all the meat off the bones, fork-shredded it and did shredded
BBQ pork topped with tangy cole slaw tossed with crumbled bleu cheese
on toasted rolls with a side of onion rings. In the glass, a dark ale,
Sam Adams Lager (two bottles of which were also used in the braising
liquid.)

Now that's something I want to eat while sitting on the couch on Sunday.  Delicious meat and some nice fried sides to go along with it -- all washed down with a Sam.  Mmmm, mmmm, mmm.

All-Star sidelined for Sixers' game vs. Bucks

CAMDEN, N.J. -- The first matchup between the oversized point guards will have to wait.

Ben Simmons will not face off against Giannis Antetokounmpo, who is sidelined because of soreness in his right knee, in the Sixers' Saturday evening game against the Bucks. Antetokounmpo is averaging 28.2 points, 10.1 rebounds, 4.6 assists and 1.3 blocks per game this season. 

That’s not the only absence.

Jerryd Bayless, who had started in place of JJ Redick (leg), is out with a sore left wrist. Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot gets the nod at shooting guard.

“It’s another opportunity to show up and make some shots and prove that I can do that,” Luwawu-Cabarrot said at shootaround, also noting he has to play tough defense on Eric Bledsoe (17.7 points per game).

Reigning Rookie of the Year Malcolm Brogdon will also miss the game because of a personal matter, per the Journal Sentinel. Brogdon beat out Joel Embiid and Dario Saric for the award last season. 

Markelle Fultz (right shoulder) remains out. He worked on free throws, driving drills, and knocked down a jumper in the portion of shootaround available to the media.
