We are all here for the winning bets, but first I have to let you know that the premier of our new podcast Chiclets Etc. featuring Colby "Army" Armstrong and yours truly dropped last night. The excitement is at an all-time high so you know I'm ready for a big weekend!
Okay, now its time to get a solid European Lunch to make sure we have a solid base to last the entire weekend of action. Today's $EBR gets a special touch of American cuisine as the NHL Global Series continues today in Tampere, Finland.
