Probably because it's warm-up? ;-)

your dad is a good man, b. :-) ;-D

if you like spicy food...you should try kimchi. koreans eat kimchi at all meals...usually with rice and a bunch of side dishes.


kimchi isn't necesserily cabbage.
I love some of those side dishes! :)

I love kimchi with yakiniku. It's going to be hard to find back home.
perhaps illegal veggies will be the next steroids in MLB. :-D

My apologies. I have a nephew named Anfernee, and I know how mad he gets when I call him Anthony. Almost as mad as I get when I think about the fact that my sister named him Anfernee.

I could sure use a piece of frozen cabbage on my head right now. It's hot as balls out right now. :-o

A pitcher would only be out there for 20 minutes at a time at most. He could change leaves every inning. It shouldn't get too stinky.

Freezing the cap itself must be illegal, or else they'd just do that.

i don't think a cap would hold the the cold nearly as well as a cabbage leaf (lots of water). Why not just sew in a pocket for the leaf? that way it will not fall out...

the following passage is from Cobb by Al Stump, a biography of Ty Cobb:

According to Cobb's very good memory, he was headed down a passage to his dugout at Yankee Stadium during a September series with the Yanks when he encountered Ruth. On a hot day Babe was wearing his summertime home remedy, a wet cabbage leaf atop his hair and under his cap.

this was in bottom of page 397.

apparently, using a cabbage isn't a Korean thing, and it was something even babe ruth used.

Anyone else going to try this? I think I'll do it next time I mow the lawn. I'll report back sometime in the next week ... :-D
