Finally, remember fondly that Tom Petty played the halftime of Super Bowl XLII, when the Giants did the world a favour & beat the 18-0 Patriots.

I’m not gonna lie-the ride to Thunder Bay was long but a ton of the scenery was jaw-droppingly amazing.

The ride to Thunder Bay does usually have good scenery, if you know what I mean.

I know exactly what you mean. Fir trees, Lake Superior, Agawa Canyon. You’re like a brother.

I would’ve thought the Firs would obscure ones view of the Canyon, though.

It’s kinda nice to see Gurley return from the Fischer abyss and look like a running back again.

No 45 Orange just denied Puerto Rican hurricane victims food stanps to purchase pre-made hot meals. He can’t choke on piss fast enough, even if the next man up electricutes gays.
