Recipe For Meatball Subs On A Primo Grill

Finished Meatball Sub This recipe was done on a Primo grill, but it has also been created many times on my Big Green Egg (BGE).  This recipe was modified from a recipe from Throwdown with Bobby Flay, where he competed against the owner of Maroni Cuisine.

Artie Lange, Joe Buck, And The Hypocrisy Of HBO

The comic Artie Lange was recently invited to Joe Buck’s new HBO show Joe Buck Live.  While on the show Lange was both funny and abrasive.  Now the head of HBO, Ross Greenburg has apologized for Lange and banned him from HBO,

“I would say I’m sorry to anyone across America who had kids and were watching what they thought was a good and honest sports show that turned into gutter language.”

I did not see the original airing of the show, but I did catch it on a replay.  Also, the show continues to replay on HBO.  Now if Mr. Greenburg is so sorry for Lange’s actions why is he continuing to air the program?  Either apologize and refuse to air the show, or continue to air it and embrace Lange’s brand of comedy.  Just don’t profit from Lange’s appearance and fain shock.
