The work is relatively straightforward, and I should be able to
So it has come to this, we have the Old Lady v Blancos for the YUGE trophy, no, the YUGEST trophy in glorious Cardiff Wales! Seriously have you seen the size of this thing? Compared to the World Cup trophy it is a wee bit excessive. Perhaps UEFA has a
Last week, the Browns showed incredible heart by battling back from a 24-13 deficit in the fourth quarter to tie the game and put themselves in position to win outright, only for their brand-new kicker Cody Parkey to miss 46-yard field goal attempt (his third miss of the day) as
So apparently there's a country out there that will be getting a shiny new government. Have at it. Feel free to get sexy, if so compelled.
There are a lot of important sporting events happening this morning. Before we begin, did you see this weird Madden glitch catch on Friday? Maple NFL is so crazy.

Good morning everyone.
Before I get started, I just found out that I have been invited to speak at a Refugee conference in Poland. That's pretty super! I can't wait to go over there and stuff myself with all those beefy Polish sausages. They look so delicious, I won't be able
Mandatory minicamps start by mid-June. In the meantime, IT’S THE EURO AND COPA CENTENARIO! The U.S.A is hosting the Copa and already teams are dissing the travel arrangements. Are you gonna take this from invading Peter Kings? Many are leftists. Or are WE, COMMENTISTS, GONNA POST SOMETHING ABOUT IT!1!1

make it snow is off this week. This Beer Barrel is brought to you by Moose - The End Is Well Nigh!
This is the story of a break for make it snow, and of one’s quest for enlightenment. So that is not really it; it is one weirdo’s evening at
You can probably use your fingers to count the genuinely distinctive beer styles invented here in the United States, even if you're Jim Abbott.
