Frozen yogurt is all the rage in southern California, and the most popular chain is Pinkberry, so I felt almost obligated to try it so I could make fun of all of the people who consume the stuff. I was, however, unprepared for how absolutely vile the stuff is. The flavor made me feel like I was sitting inside a bottle of white vinegar, licking the sides and inhaling the fumes. Their yogurt comes in three flavors - “original” (vinegar-flavored), green tea, and coffee. It’s all nonfat, which is about the stupidest thing I’ve seen in ages, since the fat in yogurt helps coat the taste buds and mute the yogurt’s acidity. The result of removing the fat is the need to increase the sugar to balance out the acid, and that results in a major glycemic load and a very unsatisfying product. I ate the oreos I’d ordered as a topping and tossed the gunk. Something that looks that much like ice cream shouldn’t taste that much like shit.Strong opinions are often hard to deal with when your brother-in-law has them, but they're what makes the blogosphere go around. I couldn't care less about frozen yogurt, but I have a soft place in my heart for anyone who can bring sharp analysis to bear on just about anything, and from what I can tell, Law has strong opinions on just about everything. How much would we all benefit by hearing him hold court on general baseball stuff as opposed to frozen yogurt?
Look, I don't really know Keith, and I have no idea if he even wants to write about other stuff on ESPN. And to be sure, he seems to really enjoy the food and books beat on his personal blog and has obviously made scouting and prospects analysis his own. But man, I would really like to see him be able to unload on game-by-game tactical decisions, or transactions that don't involve prospects, or -- and he would certainly be able to shed some light on this -- the machinations of baseball front offices.
