A few weekends ago, while waiting for a table at Chili's Grill and Bar, a Hell's Angel-looking dude practically yelled the Lord's name in vain over and over again. I asked the dude if he could lower his voice, or not blaspheme in front of my very impressionable 5-year-old son - who just wanted a Chili's grilled cheese sandwich.

"To the victors go the spoils."
For the last 12 years, four of the same five pilots have steered the good ship Santa Clarita.
