CSN – Given that Bradley Beal is affectionately called Big Panda by his teammates because of his appetite, you’d think he’d be all over some deep dish pizza, a city staple on menus everywhere. Nope. Beal doesn’t have problem with the pizza itself, but the thick breading — usually which is soaked in grease — doesn’t agree with him. He passed on the chance to have more than a bite of some at dinner this week. “I can’t eat the fat pie, whatever it’s called, the deep dish pizza,” he said before Tuesday’s shootaround going into Game 2 with the Chicago Bulls. “I can’t eat that. I had the regular thin one. I didn’t eat a lot (of the deep dish). It’ll just sit there (in your stomach) and you’ll be in the bathroom for hours.” Again, Beal proves to be knowledgeable beyond his years because he’s absolutely correct. Thin crust or nothing.
Look at Chicago, trying to give my dude Bradley Beal the shits. Not on his watch. He says you can take your big bread bowl, sauce covered pizza and stick it somewhere not pleasant. Thin crust til the day he dies all day erryday.
Now, for the record, I’ve never entered the great pizza debate because this area clearly is known for crab cakes, not pizza. But I love pizza. A lot. Like most people, I love it more than I love most things on Earth. And I have no problem with deep dish pizza. I love deep dish pizza. But what’s up with the sauce on top? Pizza should be dough, sauce, cheese, toppings. I don’t really fully grasp the idea behind Chicago pizza. But at the same time, I’ve never been to BigCatland so I hereby will not knock it til I try it. (Does Unos count?)
