The World Series and Doritos

I was relieved that the Tigers cleaned up their act and tie the series with St. Louis with a 3-1 victory last night. The Tigers looked a lot better than their game Saturday. Still, they had plenty of chances to blow the second game wide open and were unable to capitalize on the. I’m hoping the Tigers can put their act together a little better and take two out of three in St. Louis. (I’d rather them finish the series in Detroit and win it in front of the hometown fans.)


It appears I’m not the only person getting old.

One of my favorite snack foods is Doritos. Marathon Girl, who does an excellent job of keeping my snack cupboard well-stocked, is always buying me new flavors of Doritos when they come out. So, when I noticed there was some Fiery Habanero Doritos in the cupboard a few weeks ago, I couldn’t wait to try them. I love hot and spicy things. Unfortunately Fiery Habanero proved to be a bit too much for me. It was hard to eat more than a handful without drinking copious amounts of water or feeling a tinge of heartburn.

Ten to 15 years ago, I don’t think I would have had a problem eating a whole bag of those spicy chips. Today my body rebels against the anything past medium on the hot and spicy scale – just a further reminder that no matter how good of shape I try to keep my body in, there’s some parts of getting older that I can’t keep stop.

Fortunately, the good people at the Frito Lay also came out with Blazin’ Buffalo & Ranch Doritos. These have a nice bite to them but nothing guys in their early 30s like me can’t handle. They’re quickly becoming one of my favorite chips.
