The Week Contest
This week’s question: A French chef is suing the Michelin Guide for downgrading him to two stars and accusing him of using cheddar cheese in a soufflé; chef Marc Veyrat insists he used fine local cheeses that were colored yellow by saffron. “It’s worse than a wound,” he said. If Hollywood were to make a courtroom drama about Veyrat’s quest for justice, what could it be called?
Last week’s contest: The average nine-inning Major League Baseball game lasted a record 3 hours, 5 minutes this season, up from 2 hours, 46 minutes in 2005. Please come up with a medical term to describe the fatigue felt by fans when a baseball game creeps into the third hour.
THE WINNER: Louisville sluggish Kim Doyle, Woolwich, Maine
SECOND PLACE: Bat-atonic D. McSwain, Fort Lauderdale
THIRD PLACE: Seventh inning kvetch Peter W. Reichert, Richmond, Calif.
