Because sports should never run your life ... retorts for sports

Category Archives: Dog Pound

We’re starting the year off with two new ChabDoggies of the Month that will give you a huge case of puppy love … introducing the Montana cockers Misty Mae and Freddy The Great …

A big hello and 2020 welcome to the newest Chabner/Thompson cocker spaniels on the block — pictured above are brother and sister, 10 year old pups Freddy (the boy in the blue collar) and Misty (the little girl in pink) …

Born and bred in Montana, they’ve relocated to Newton, MA and Scarsdale, NY, respectively.  They’re 10 weeks old and completely irresistible.  Freddy is reunited with Ginger and will forever more rule the roost at the Massachusetts General residence of owners Bruce and Davi, while Misty starts a new era of canine residents in the Thompson household.  Hey Misty, better tell Leo the Leothario who’s boss … I hear he’s a real long nosed ladies man.

Time to add Eli Chabner as ChabDog of the Month for December 2019

Pictured here in the arms of dear departed friend Eli Glatstein, Eli Chabner officially joins the roster of ChabDogs of the Month for December 2019.

Eli the cocker spaniel, extraordinaire, was the 2nd of 6 such blondies to hold the title of family dog for Bruce and Davi Chabner.  He joined the family on or about Rosh Hashannah of 1990, and was with us for almost 15 years of continuous joy.  Quite the regal looker, Eli loved to be loved, and was never more comfortable than when he was being held … except of course when we was being fed bagels, steak or whatever

else he could get a hold of.  He took very good care of his adopted sister, Lily, and was always there to comfort and support his owners.  No wonder Dr. Glatstein was tickled pink to have such a namesake with floppy ears, a beautiful black nose and the always perfect pose for the camera.

May both of these much beloved Elis rest in peace.


A great plan for lunch: Go Breakfast Bowling at the Grindz!

This affordable, and absolutely delicious, breakfast bowl can be yours at that home for savory Hawaiian style food, The Grindz at 1601.

Today, I tried the hugely satisfying “Breakfast Bowl”, creating from my own personal wish list an extravagant symphony of tastes … combining white rice, spicy Portuguese sausage, pepper jack cheese, some perfectly cooked fried eggs and a one-of-a-kind habanero/pesto sauce.

There are plenty other combinations of meats, rice/beans, cheeses and proteins and dressings possible.  You make the call/you can’t go wrong!


Boy oh boy! Do we have a new ChabDog of the Month for you … say hello to Boy Boy, ChabDog of the Month for November:

My name is Boy Boy, I am a 5 year old Miniature Pinscher. I am a rescue and have been with my Momma for two years. My Momma is a high energy blonde Real Estate Agent with Sotheby’s International: Sunset Strip. I am constantly dressed up in different outfits and on video while she updates her clients on Real Estate news. I am a happy dog, I sleep next to my Momma every night and rarely bark. I stand up to big dogs even though they would easily win in a scuff. My diet is beef liver and dry food…I love my beef liver!!! I am honored to be Chabdog of the month!!!

Thank you to Boy Boy and his Momma/owner Brittany Davis.  You certainly are a worthy ChabDog the Month for November 2019.

Beefing up at The Grindz with their bountiful burger …

I had the pleasure of sampling the very tasty burger at The Grindz.  It was cooked medium well, and to perfection, and comes with melted cheddar, delicious bacon, lettuce and tomato, and the secret sauce that puts this sandwich over the edge … garlic aioli.   This sandwich comes with your choice a delicious side (go with the mac salad) and a refreshing, crisp dill pickle.

On the “On the verge of a major vacation” CDST show (Part 1):

On the “On the verge of a major vacation” CDST show (Part 1):
— A moment of reflection, before my holy pilgrimage to the land inhabited by the Pilgrims
— Not too many teams in MLB have standing in the standings to even think about playing in October
— Is this as good as it gets for Les Mets, whose bullpen is no longer Les Miserables
— Fleming has unlimited capacity for sports trivia but must filibuster for more washing and drying capacity
— Being an overpaid prick and a primadonna is a lethal combination, eh Philadelphia
— Just keep obliterating those third rate O’s when they’re down, as they get spanked in succession by the Yankees and the Stros.
— Goldy continues to finger the cardinal sinner Buccos for the most cruel and unusual punishment;
— Michael is a picture of impressive sync at the plate, just like his photogenic mommy Ruiz in the 1984 Olympic swimming pool (they definitely took the wrong Conforto’s clothes off in celebration?)
— 11 power punches by Pete and there will be a very large, happy polar bear jumping into the drink at Jones Beach.
— You should be suspended for losing 1 to the Royals … oh sorry, that was what actually happened to the Bosox the next game.
— Boston’s starting rotation looks pretty rotten, and that’s direct quotation; Cashner as money in the bank … don’t count on it.
— Le’veon lets it be known he doesn’t do preseason thunderstorms
— Vowing to give us the headless horseman treatment, Antonio lobbies to be treated like a grandfather; Tank gives us a Hard Knocks update
— A perhaps overzealous Big Ben is now playing the big heavy in Pittsburgh’s locker room; ChabDog thinks the Steelers have only themselves to blame for this bad situation (too much job security for Tomlin)
— Memo to Brandon: The water at Amity Island is “just fine”. Just ask Chief Brody.
— Rocky is turning into Mickey.
— Patricia’s working with a bunch of real plebieans in Detroit.
— Caruso gets into the nitty gritty details on why NE’s defense will be excessively stingy this year.
— Some deluded person on our show starts ‘supposin that the Fins will win 8 with Rosen and then bugs out to finish his laundry/weight lifting.
— Tank’s underwear drawer houses a real large Rainbow Push Coalition
— Take a wild ride around the track at Daytona, when in ’79, Yarborough crashed into a blocking Allison, leaving room for survivor Petty to slip in for a 6th crown. And then fisticuffs to finish, with brother Bobby joining in.
— Maahk and I discuss his future as the next “Benny Parsons” … another guy who started out as a cabbie
— You know you’re living healthy when your ice cream is avacado.
— What it’s like to be flagged as a crank caller to the NFL’s league office; it’s hard for a Revere boy to camoflage his hard New England accent
— Let’s hear it for Heroes and Dragons in South Carolina … tell them just sent you.
— It was hailing Halo runs last night at Fenway… uugh!
— Red Sox have experienced a touch too much of Brian Johnson.
— As for the Yankee’s bullpen, let’s not get into it.
— When Frank throws in the towel on his hometown team, that’s a pretty big towel.

Say hello to “Huck” — ChabDog of the Month for August, 2019

Let’s hear it for hearty Huck, the 2 yr-old Bull Mastiff, who is just in time to serve as ChabDog of the Month for what’s left of August.  He’s sporting a big lampshade, recovering from some surgery, but that didn’t seem to slow him down, as he was very friendly, engaging and certainly not bashful.  Much thanks to his owner Rick, for letting me pose with him.  And as they say in the commercials, “Watch out for the Bull… Mastiff”!


It’s Teriyaki Time at The Grindz … set your watch on it!

I was recently reunited with one of my favorite, stand-by dishes at The Grindz — the simply wonderful Teriyaki Plate.  Tender chicken grilled and seasoned to perfection, accompanied by a generous portion of white rice, tangy Hawaiian slaw, and the one-and-only mac salad.  I had plenty of hot sauce ready, and along with the savory teriyaki sauce, my taste buds were sent into an endless orbit of pleasure.

Another lunchtime masterpiece from The Grindz @ 1601!
