Wager this

Posted In Sports

A few people have asked why I’m not covering the March Madness. Simple answer- I hate watching basketball. I have nothing against playing it. I mean, what 5’ 8” chick can’t shoot some hoops?

  10. Roller derby

    Kevin, it was on my list, but I have a fear of crazy wicker paper cuts.

  6. Rebecca says:

    Little person wrestling is the preferable term. I’m just saying…

  7. […] Australia to check out all the crashes.  But luckily, I can return to a sports bar without being bored by March Madness.  If you missed last night’s 9-7 Red Sox win over the Yankees, you’re un-American.  One of […]
