This is tough. I let yesterday go by because if I were writing in my feelings I would have said things about Warner Brothers that may have gotten my blog removed.

Man I remember being in Catholic School and bringing my new electronic Mr. Quarterback to school to show my friends. We used to play our electronic games during the break in-between the teachers coming to our classroom. (Remember those days when the teachers came to you?) Anyway my buddies Michael Harris, Kevin Gipson and I... Read more »
