Sigurdsson denies Toffees

first_img The Toffees looked like taking all three points from north London after Phil Jagielka and Kevin Mirallas scored following Emmanuel Adebayor’s 35th second opener. But Sigurdsson, charged with the task of playing in the hole where Bale has been so effective this season, salvaged a point for the hosts by scoring a crucial goal three minutes from time. Press Association Gylfi Sigurdsson’s late strike prevented Tottenham from slipping to another defeat, but Spurs’ reliance on Gareth Bale was laid bare as they had to settle for a 2-2 draw against Everton at White Hart Lane.center_img Despite finding the net twice, Tottenham sorely missed the scoring talents of Bale and the creative wizardry of Aaron Lennon. All the pre-match talk had been about how Spurs would struggle without the Welshman’s goals, but they gave the perfect response by breaking the deadlock with the second quickest goal of the season. In the first move of the match, Everton’s defence backed off Jan Vertonghen, he delivered a teasing ball across the box, and Adebayor stuck his right leg and prodded the ball past Tim Howard. Everton were shell-shocked by the goal, but it did not take them long to come back in to the game. Michael Dawson almost gifted them a 10th-minute equaliser when he passed the ball straight to Leon Osman 15 yards out, but he curled high and wide. Dawson then cut out Victor Anichebe’s cross as a row of Everton attackers lined up to convert, but unfortunately for the Tottenham captain, his defensive colleague Vertonghen let him down from the resulting corner. The Belgian lost Jagielka at the back post and he nodded Leighton Baines’ cross in to the bottom corner. Spurs thought they should have had a penalty on the half hour when Clint Dempsey’s cross brushed Darron Gibson’s arm, but Andre Marriner waved play on. Everton sounded an early warning just after the restart when Gibson struck a curling shot just wide, and with 52 minutes on the clock, they were ahead. Mirallas drifted in from the right flank and drifted past Scott Parker and Steven Caulker before slotting the ball beyond Hugo Lloris. Spurs went straight on the attack and almost scored an equaliser through Mousa Dembele, whose 20-yard shot ricocheted off John Heitinga’s foot and Howard’s arm on to the bar. Heitinga almost sealed the win at the other end soon after but Dawson put in a crunching goal-saving tackle to deny the Dutchman. Spurs’ hopes of an equaliser looked to have faded but with three minutes left, Adebayor’s shot came back off the post and Sigurdsson converted. last_img read more

Critic’s Notebook: Angel Dog vs. Dodger Dog, who does it better?

first_imgThe chili cheese dog at Crafty Dogs, on the other hand, can be made with real cheddar (although goop is available). The chili might come from a can, or maybe they make it at the commissary here. Knowing the answer doesn’t change the way it tastes, but that’s not the point.The point is this: The chili cheese Angel Dog at the Crafty Dogs concession is the best-tasting hot dog at either ballpark.So there you have it.Related Articles Japanese food at the small Sushi Nakata in Monrovia is big on taste Both parks offer a chili cheese version. At Dodgers Stadium it comes with the same yellow goop they pour over nachos, and the chili is so soupy that the only way to eat it is with a spoon, or a funnel. Shoppers enjoy eating up food hall dining in Pasadena, Arcadia Rather, the biggest difference between a Dodger Dog and an Angel Dog comes with execution — and knowing that not all concessions are equal.PreviousFor the best Dodger Dogs at Dodger Stadium, look for the limited “grilled” concessions (Photo by Brad A.

Johnson, Orange County Register/SCNG)ExpandTake Dodgers Stadium. The core Dodger Dog comes in two styles — regular (steamed) or grilled. The latter is what you want. You’ll find the steamed Dodger Dogs everywhere you look, but the grilled Dodger Dogs are available only at select concessions, which are clearly marked.The grilled Dodger Dogs have far more flavor, a better texture and, based on my random samplings, haven’t been sitting around suffocating in their wrappers as long. Either way, you’re going to have to dress it yourself, and your choices for toppings are limited to bright yellow mustard, florescent sweet pickle relish, weirdly pulverized onions and ketchup, all of which you must manage yourself, probably with just one hand.It’s a similar story at Angels Stadium, where the basic Angel Dog is steamed. There is, however, one concession where the wieners are grilled. That’s the Crafty Dogs concession on the ground level near section 127.This is where you can build your own Angels Dog, starting with a wiener hot off the grill (technically it’s a griddle at either ballpark). The best part is you don’t have to do any of the work, and you don’t have to settle for florescent toppings. Your hot dog comes off the other end of a friendly assembly line ready for its perfect Instagram moment. This is also the one stand that will construct a chili cheese dog.

That’s a loaded question.Plain Angel Dog at Angels Stadium (Photo by Brad A. Johnson, Orange County Register/SCNG)Neither is great. Let’s be clear about that. Ballpark hot dogs don’t aspire to greatness. Their only aspiration is to taste like hot dogs, something to be enjoyed equally by kids and adults.There’s honestly not much difference between the basic wieners or the buns at the two parks. You should know, however, that you don’t have to settle for either team’s most generic dog.And, no, I’m not talking about “gourmet” sausages here. Just the regular weenies. (I previously sampled the “gourmet” sausage dogs at Angels Stadium and decided they were among the worst foods at the ballpark.)
