Football Season Is Upon Us!

I have been counting the days until kickoff and my annual away game trip with my friends to Alabama. We are down to 38 as of today. The iPhone app Big Day Lite is making the experience so much easier. Check out this pic of the app on my phone - the swamp and all.

I was looking more into the conference changes today and discovered that the Big Ten will now be the Big Twelve and the Big 12 will now be the Big 10. How weird is that? The logos and potential name changes should be interesting.

Burgers times 3

I am a little behind on my to do list in every category. So rather than giving a review for each burger I had on my honeymoon separately at a later date, I figured my blog would be better served with a single article and lots of pics rather than waiting any longer.

We hit a semi-landmark burger spot in Ocean Beach (San Diego), California called Hodad's within the first few days after getting married. Then I had the Jimmy Buffet burger in Bora Bora, French Polynesia at Bloody Mary's. And then towards the end I scarfed down the burger at Snack Hinerava in Teahupoo, Tahiti; which was also in French Polynesia.

Hodad's, Ocean Beach, California

Hodad's - from across the street.

Hodad's - cool mural on the west side facing the beach.

Hodad's line nearly around the block.

Hodad's storefront with burger fans everywhere.

Hodad's - the inside.

Hodad's Menu - I ordered the single with Cheese, a strawberry shake, and split an order of onion rings with my new wife.

Us at our table - what a coincidence! I'm originally from New York and she is originally from Michigan (note the plates). We were just sat at the first table available. How cool.

My single with cheese.

Me eating my burger - tasty!

My strawberry shake - tableside.
