A fantastic article about Maradona and this world cup.  I didn’t know half the stuff he’s been doing and saying these past few months!

Maradona is not a man, so much as an affliction. An incurable, uniquely Argentine disease that torments a soccer-mad nation of 40-million with fits of intense pleasure and epic falls from grace.

At one part, it’s explained that one player was picked for the roster because Maradona had a dream of winning the World Cup and, upon waking, could only remember that one guy’s face. Crazy!

Today, I talk about pizza.

Pizza toppings are a vital part of creating a tasty pie.  My standard favourite is sausage (spicy), mushroom (butter of the vegetable kingdom) and green olives (no explanation necessary.)

However, that is not my only topping combo.  Introduced to me by my roommate, the feta cheese, tomato slices and bacon (crumble: trust me, I’m a scientist when it comes to pizza) is quickly working its way up the ranks.

And then there’s the Argentina classic: ham, cheese and egg.  You might think I’m crazy (you’d be wrong) but until you’ve had pizza in Argentina, you don’t even know what pizza is.  Seriously, if I had access to the pizza they make in Argentina I’d be a million times happier than I am now.  It’s not even about the toppings; it’s the entire unit.

The deep dish pizza from Uno’s (currently only in the states… lame) is another favourite of mine.
