Q: Did you know the appliance we refer to as a “dishwasher” has been poorly branded and does not do what it says it does? Continue reading
“This Time It Counts.” That’s the bill of goods Major League Baseball is selling its fans now. Since 2003 the league that wins the All-Star Game is awarded home field advantage for the World Series. This abomination has been discussed, voted on, and approved 3 separate times, proving that it wasn’t a mistake and that it has been, in fact, deliberate and on purpose. Continue reading

The NFL held their annual Rookie Symposium last week. It’s basically a 4 day prep course to grow college “student-athletes” into NFL players.
