The C&A was the last place I ate a burger before going on the disabled list with a tooth infection. Now that may sound pretty weak, but try to bite into a burger when some of your teeth are throbbing. So we had to go soft for a few days. You know, the bologna sandwich and scrambled eggs thing. We hope the choppers are back in business next week. But there is still much value to this Byte. After all, the Anchor could have slipped from its prime ranking over the past year. We’re happy to say no. The Union Jack still flies high in burger annals. And, if you like soccer, come around Tea Time when Arsenal or Manchester United are in action. It’s fun to be British, even to those wannabees like me.
