David Tyree’s helmet catch

As a Giants fan, I’m staring down Super Bowl LII like it’s a Presidential election: I guess the Eagles are the lesser of the evils? Anyway, this whole damn season and postseason was depressing so I’ve been consoling myself with YouTube clips of the 2008 David Tyree catch on loop. [Kate Bernot]

How to fry like a pro

Readers of The Takeout know what big fans we are of America’s Test Kitchen. Any technique on their television show or one of their books, you know, has been tested, refined, and perfected. They have never done me wrong. In this video, you’ll learn some common pitfalls of deep frying. The key really is to invest in a digital thermometer, which for around $20, has yielded far more returns than the initial investment. [Kevin Pang]
