I may have come off as mean spirited. Actually, I like Al. I even entered the contest to try and get on his team -- I've even read his book! So, I'm not mad at Al -- I just wish his team had come off looking like serious cookers instead of bumbling around for TV.
Will I enter another contest? You bet -- if he does this gig next year maybe he'll get a Brethren member.
