Pounding the sports beat with a whack-a-mole hammer, not to be confused with a guacamole squisher ...

•Richard Sherman, if you want to earn the love of the 49ers’ fans, promise them that when the 49ers beat the Seahawks in Seattle, you’ll set up a table at midfield, tie on a bib and scarf down a steaming bowl of Pike Place Chowder. I recommend the smoked salmon chowder, because in Seattle, they really know how to smoke stuff. READ MORE >

Pike Place Chowder's Secret Recipe Gives the East Coast a Run For Its Money

Clam chowder is traditionally associated with the East Coast  —  so much so that the two most prominent styles of the hearty soup reflect the relation in their names: New England and Manhattan. But one establishment in Seattle called Pike Place Chowder — located in the beloved Pike Place Market — began entering chowder cook-offs in the 1990s on the both coasts, and absolutely destroyed the competition with their secret recipe.
