Taquitos & baseball

I went to Taco Bell for lunch. I probably should have brown-bagged it today, and certainly had the time, but completely lacked the inclination. Unusually for me, I decided to try a couple of different things: the grilled steak taquitos and the spicy chicken soft taco. The latter was nothing special, losing points for the rather limp pico de gallo, but the taquitos were actually pretty damn good. Basically, they're a lighter version of the grilled stuffed burrito (i.e. without the beans and rice) cut in half and served with your choice of dipping stuff. I went with the guacamole, which was a happy choice since unlike most fast food guacamole this was actually somewhat spicy. It's no substitute for the real thing, of course, but it's better than the usual reliable mediocrity.

Speaking of mediocrity, Chris Needham puts together a good primer to the Nationals' talent (or lack thereof) as they head into spring training. I'm going to have to watch his blog a little more closely -and maybe start reading the Washington Times again, if only the sports page- as the season approaches. It could be a very interesting year, in both senses of the word.
