I love football. I love my Nissan Titan. I love tailgaiting at football games with my Nissan Titan. And I love cooking and grilling.

It also could be argued that I have an unnatural affection bordering on an erotic obsession for the Costco discount warehouse chain. It's understandable since they let me return whatever I buy there for full price, whether or not I have a receipt and no matter how much time has passed. I've bought and returned four cell phones (and upgraded each time) and more than a half-dozen digital cameras (which I've also upgraded each time).

So with those things plainly stated, this following item e-mailed to me by Costco is like giving heroin to Courtney Love:

How much might it be?


Damn, it's good that I'm po'. Especially after I read the specs:
