Is it safe to say that the Wizards have gotten the monkey off their back?
They won 100-91 over the Grizzlies on Wednesday. They're now on a three-game win streak with as much momentum as they've had since the beginning of the season to be honest with you. John Wall scored 14 points and dished another 14 assists while Garrett Temple had his third straight 20 point game.

We also have a couple of highlight links to share with you. First, Marcin Gortat made this sick alley-oop dunk in traffic from a Gary Neal pass. And in case you forgot, John Wall is a great shot blocker.

Pancake Spotlight: Goelong Goelong
I didn't expect a win so quick, but I won't complain. And let's head down to South America for our next pancake.
The Goelong Goelong (pronounced as who-long who-long in Dutch) is a Surinamese coconut colored pancake. According to Dutch lifestyle blogger Shavida van Poelgeest, these pancakes are traditionally popular at parties.
Below is a video from van Poelgeest's YouTube channel. The recipe in her blog calls for red food coloring which makes them pinkish, but they can be other colors too.
Enjoy your food, and I wonder if there are flights that can take me directly to Paramaribo so I can try these pancakes where they originate.
