True to form, Oregon showed up in yet another uni, graphite w/ lime green numerals, looking like nothing less than fancy Prada tennis balls. However, the expected outbreak of the unpredictable -- Calvinball in the Jerrydome, anyone? Arrived in the form of an old fashioued beatdown by LSU, who showed up in their regular white unis, and administered a beatdown. In retrospect, in place of the vaguely surreal menu I suggested, canard au sang would have been a better choice:
A duck is strangled – so very little blood is lost in the slaughtering process – then roasted to medium rare. The legs are removed and grilled, the breast is cut into thin slices and the liver is removed and liquefied in a blender. The remaining duck carcass goes into the press, and the server cranks the screw down. All of the blood, bone marrow and cooking juices are squeezed out of the duck. The liquefied liver and a little cognac are added to the duck juice, and everything is heated. The resulting sauce is drizzled over the breast slices and served, along with the grilled legs, to the diner.
Awesome! This beaut can be yours for only $1831.50! We can only hope for a .gif of Les Miles operating one.
