The Official Goatriders Stance on Whether Almost-Certain PED User Sammy Sosa Is Elected to the Hall of Fame
Who cares? I just love posting his ‘white’ pictures. Hey, at least we won’t ever have to sit through another Casey Coleman start.  That’s good news, eh? Enjoy the Scott Feldman Era, everyone!

Why do we even bother - The 2011 Cubs at the halfway point

They’ve played 79 games….eeeeh, close enough. In situations such as the one your 2011 Chicago Cubs find themselves in, the biggest commodity that needs to be doled out is “blame”, although there are some reasons for “praise” as well.  When discharging your own personal Protected By Our Constitution Assault Weapon of Blame, you may choose...
