Bye Bye Odell

BecckhamJrODELLbyeBYE

"BYE BYE ODELL" !!! "You Won't Be Missed"

 

Not by This Guy, nor a Couple Million other Giant Fans who felt as I did, that Odell Beckham Jr. was a Over Rated, Over Paid, disruptive Diva, and the New York Football Giants will be much better off without him and the ridiculously insane salary they were going to pay him 93 Million Dollars over 5 years. T,hank goodness the Giants came to their senses, realized that Odell's Cons far out weighed his Pros, they figured they'd be better off without him and his high-priced salary, no more distractions with Odell's ridiculous antics and the Giants can get back to Winning again.

Bye Bye Odell, good luck. and Giants fans might look forward to having a winning season this year after thee Two Worst Seasons in New York Giant History. The Giants were Pitiful and embarrassing. Let's put all that behind us, and do what the Giants do best when they're in their Groove, and that winning NFL Football games.

Basta !

 

PS ... Thanks again to the Giants for drafting Saquon Barkely last year. And Thank You Saquon for treating Giant fans to a superb Rookie Season. You were one of the few shining stars in a horrible season for the NY Giants. I was hoping the Goants would draft, and they did. And I was hoping you'd have a good year, as though college football players often play very well in college, their talents don't always translate well to the NFL, but you did, and had a remarkable Rookie Season (Rookie of The Year). Bravo Saquon.

Prosciuttoless Nebraska No Prosciutto or Italian Sausage

FAICCO'S
GREENWICH VILLAGE , NEW YORK
 

It's a well known fact that thousands of Italian-American New Yorkers have been displaced over the years. Philadelphians, Bostonian Italians, and others too. Former Italian-American New Yorkers who have been in serious distress and mental anguish over the lack of good Italian restaurants and availability of quality Italian food products in the rest of the country, excluding of course cities like Boston, Philly, and San Francisco. Other than these, you’re going to have a very hard time trying to find a good Italian Restaurant, Pizza, and Italian food products. It’s a “Sad Hard Fact-of-Life” that many cities and towns in the U.S. are completely “devoid” of good Italian Restaurants, Pork Stores, good Pizzerias, a properly pulled Espresso, or specialty shops where people of Italian origins, who are in need of good fresh Italian Sausages, Bread, Prosciutto,

Salami, Parmigiano Reggiano, olive oil, fresh Mozz-arella, Cannoli, and other products required to make proper Italian meals. These are simple necessities required to live a happy productive life, being able to purchase good quality Italian food products, or go out to eat at a true Italian Restaurant, or Pizzeria. 
 
    “Yes, believe it or not,” there are many places in this great nation of ours where the local citizenry are denied some of life’s greatest treats. It may be alright for the local natives who were born in these deprived areas, but as for Italian-Americans who move to one, for whatever reasons, the deprivation caused by the lack of good honest Italian Food is enough to cause un-necessary anguish, yearning, and outright sadness.
 
 Those of us who live in New York are extremely fortunate to have a plethora of the simple pleasures of outstanding Italian Restaurants, Pizzerias, Italian Pasrty Shops, Caffe’s, Pasta Shops, Pork Stores, Wine Shops, and Italian Specialty Shops that supply us with every Italian culinary treat under the Sun.
     Yes we are blessed with restaurants like Rao’s,  Gino’s, Patsy’s, Elio’s, Rocco’s, Bar Pitti, Frankie’s Spuntino, and others that serve tasty authentically prepared Italian food, along with bakeries that bake magnificent bread, Biscotti, Cheesecake, Cannoli, and other pastries.
We have the best Pizzerias out-side of Italy, like; Totonno’s, Lombardi’s, and John’s of Bleecker Street.
 
      In New York we have great Pork Stores that pre-pare wonderful fresh Italian Sausage, Braciole, Sopressetta, Cacatitorini, fresh Mozzarella, and more. There are countless Italian food emporiums where you can buy imported Olive Oils, vinegar, pasta, Prosciutto de Parma, Mortadella from Bologna, Gorgonzola, Fontina, Aceto Baslamico from Modena, Porcini Secco, and the sinful Tartuffo Bianco of Alba in Peidmonte (The Foot of the Mountain). The same place were the wondrous Barolo, Barbera, and Barbaresco wines come from. When White Truffles are in season, from mid-October through early January, it is favorite time of the year for gourmands, everywhere.
 
     We New Yorkers are blessed with amazing Italian Caffes, that serve authentic pastries, Gelato, and prop -erly made Espresso and Cappuccino. We have Pork Stores and Delis, that sell fresh Italian Pork Sausages, Imported Italian Cheese, Salami, Olive Oil, Pasta, Prosciutto, and more. And we have butchers who know how to cut a “Proper Veal Scallopine and make Braciole ready for cooking. We have restaurants and Trattorias that know how to make authentic Bolognese Sauce, Spaghetti Carbonara, and Linguine Vong-ole. Culinarily, we want for nothing!
 
 “My condolences to those Americans deprived of these simple little Pleasures. Excuse me, “Necessities” to good, Happy Living!”

Anthony Bourdain Favorite Pasta Cacio Pepe

 


CACIO PEPE

"Anthony Bourddain 's Favorite Pasta"

RIP TONY


RECIPE
INGREDIENTS :
1 pound Imported Italian Spaghetti
2 tablespoon freshly, coarsely grated Black Pepper 4 tablespoons Butter 2 1/4 cups grated Pecorino Romano Cheese
PREPARATION
Cook the spaghetti according to the directions for that brand, usually about 8 or 9 minutes. Start the sauce when the spaghetti is not quite cooked, about 3 minutes before you would normally take it out of the water. In a already heated saute pan big enough to eventually hold your pasta, add the boiling pasta water, the butter and the pepper. Pull the pasta out of the water and let it drain. Add the drained pasta to the pan and toss through the water mixture until the pasta absorbs almost all of the water. Remove from the heat, and add the grated cheese to the pasta. Very quickly, stir the cheese into the pasta so that it becomes creamy. If it starts to clump or becomes too dry, add a little more of the pasta water as you are  stirring.  Place the pasta into the Parmesan cup and garnish with more grated cheese and freshly grated pepper, to taste.

Mario Batali Exonerated from Sexual Harassment Charges NYPD





Celebrity Chef MARIO BATALI



Celebrity Chef Mario Batali has been Exonerated of all Sexual Harassment Charges. Three investigations into sexual assault allegations against the celebrity chef Mario Batali have been closed because detectives could not find enough evidence to make an arrest, a New York Police Department official said Tuesday.
Three women had come forward to report that Mr. Batali sexually assaulted them years earlier at two Manhattan restaurants where he was an owner or an investor. In all three cases, the victims said they had been drinking and could not fully remember what had happened.
Charges could not be brought in two of the cases because they were beyond the New York State statute of limitations, which was lifted in 2006 but not made retroactive. Those investigations were closed sometime last summer, according to the official, who spoke on the condition of remaining anonymous as the official is not authorized to discuss the cases.
Prosecutors could not bring charges in the 3rd case because cold-case detectives in the Special Victims Division were unable to find enough evidence to prove that a crime had occurred. The case was closed in August 2018 , the official said.

The third woman claimed that she was raped 8 or 9 years ago after visiting the Spotted Pig Restaurant in Greenwich Village where Batali was an investor. The woman said that she had been drinking, and the next thing she recalled was waking up in the restaurant’s third-floor V.I.P. space, the infamous room that some of the employees dubbed The Rape Room.
“She couldn’t put the pieces together,” A New York City Police official said, "She couldn't put the pieces together," of her allegations. The police official also said, “Something happened to that victim in that room, but we don’t know if it’s criminal or not.”
Although the statute of limitations prevented Mr. Batali from being charged in the two earlier cases, prosecutors could have tried to use them in the third case as evidence of a pattern of sexual misconduct.
Mr. Batali is not completely off the hook; the cases could be reopened if more evidence emerges, the police official said. The New York City Police Department said Tuesday that it declines comment on details of any particular investigation.






Now, as this country (America) is supposed t be a just one, let's hope that the media spends as much time reporting the Exoneration of all Allegations against Mr. Batali. He has not been found guilty or even been charged of any criminal activity, yet his reputation and career have been Ruined, unjustly so. Isn't a person supposed to be Innocent until proven Guilty in The United States of America? Mario Batali has already been humiliated and persecuted in front of the entire World and especially in America, though he has committed No Crime., his reputation has been tarnished, and it is unlikely that though he has not been convicted of any crime at all, or even been charged, he has suffered greatly in the Court of Public Opinion. Is this just? We think not.

After these Sexual Harassment Allegations against Mario Batali, Mr. Batali was immediately fired by ABC from the show The CHEW where he was one of the hosts, Batali was humiliated in front of the World, and forced to remove himself from being present in any of his restaurants of which Batali, his talents and personality was the primary reason for the huge sucess of the Batali Bastianich Restaurant Empire who also own Eataly in New York, as well as restaurant around the country. Mario Batali has not been convicted of any crimes or even charged with any, yet he has beem Prosecuted in front of the general public of The United States of America, and the World. Batali has been exonerated by the New York City Police Department and the New York City Prosecutor, yet he has been ruined. Is this fare?
