Capitals win streak set to end at 13, and 13 grossest food stories of all time

The sun is out in Washington, D.C., as the city begins to dig out from record snowfall and even worse television commentary (why do so many people in D.C. apparently own cross-country skis when it rarely snows enough to use them?).

The Capitals-Pens hockey game was sold out, the teenager was asleep, and after a walk we soon found ourselves in a bar to watch the hyped pre-Super Bowl noontime game showcased on national TV. The Caps 13-game winning streak is in danger with the Pens leading 4-2 after 2 periods. Sorenne in her Ovechkin shirt fell asleep in my arms, although her eyes briefly opened for this pic (right). 

The Consumerist just published its top 13 grossest food stories of all time – or from the past 4 years or so. I’ll just run the headlines here.
