The best chain sandwich shop is Capriotti's. Don't think Louisiana has one yet, but there are some in Texas, Florida and Georgia I believe. If you have a chance to go, get the grilled Italian sub. You can thank me later....

It was seemingly created as a hangover meal, and one that is as likely to make you feel better from puking afterwards as it is from providing hangover substinence....

haha, google translate always does such a shitty job. So hard to read that. If I may, in a more colloquial sense that better translates and accounts for twitter limitations:

All I know is that Joe Corona looked terrible out there tonight. He is not A team quality at this point.

UF in '96 would be tough to beat on the college level if you include the full combo:

Yes, diabetes can be devastating, especially for the lower-income population. It's not an infectious disease, it is manageable, and has been treatable for years, so the push to find a cure is somewhat mitigated.
Kudos to the lead researcher referenced in the article for using his expertise to ta...

Seems like a major step towards a Type-1 diabetes cure coming from stem-cell research at Harvard.
Given the number of people who suffer from the disease, I don't think the claim in the article that this breakthrough compares to the emergence of antibiotics is too hyperbolic.
Please note, this ...

Until further evidence suggests otherwise, the Nats are postseason choke artists. 2 out of the last 3 years they enter the playoffs with the best record in the National League, and barring a miracle, they will lose in the WC round both times.
