Oh It's A Throwdown
Mr. California vs Ms. France
These two titans in the wine writing world
Okay one titan and one chick with a very small but supportive following
Battling for pride
And in an effort NOT to puke
Ms. France rooting for her beloved, oh and we should mention….defending NBA Champions, Los Angeles Lakers
Mr. California waving is faded 2008 Champion t-shirt is support of a team from some town where they talk funny.
Mr. California, when (ahem) if his team loses will be forced to drink a glass, (at least) of France’s beloved anise flavored beverage, Pastis. Much adored by Ms. France and she is sure that he will love it once he acquires a taste for it.
Ms. France, on the off chance that her team loses the foul calls and half her team, (not unheard of…did you see game 5?) will have to ingest one of California’s most over extracted and profoundly out of balance Chardonnays. A wine that Mr. California is sure she could stomach with curry or spicy Thai….Mr. California while simply adorable is flawed, in his alliance to a funny talking town's team and if he thinks she would be able to choke that wine down with coconut milk…that just made her throw up a little.
It all comes down to Thursday Mr. Olken
Oh and I am nervous as hell!
