Your fantasy team is in shambles.

So, my friend makes this drink called “Shambles.”  It’s champagne, vodka, and Red Bull.  You might be able to guess how it gets its name.  When you have a Shambles or two at the beginning of an evening, it can only end in one of three ways:  you pass out early, you go down in … Continue reading

The Tebow Debate

So what’s the deal with this kid?  Is he for real, or is he just hype?  Everybody seems to love him (though, I find his hyper religiousness somewhat off-putting), but will he live up to his expectations? I didn’t happen to watch the Miami v. Denver game last week, though I caught parts of it.  … Continue reading
