It’s snowing in Chicago, harkening back to a simpler time. A time before the forward pass. The Bears and 49ers are refusing to throw the ball since the conditions aren’t conducive to it, which at least keeps the clock rolling.

Abadou Doumbia, in Wichita, Kansas, broke into a home with his partner and a gun. The homeowner took the gun from him and shot a few times. Doumbia was DRT (dead right there). The second thief got away. In an update to our story yesterday from Culpepper, Virginia, 18-year-old Amber Eley knocked on a door […]
The Panthers are struggling big time compared to last year, but their Sunday match against the Seahawks should be a good one. The Carolina Panthers and Seattle Seahawks were two of the best teams in the league a season ago. Before this...Show More Summary

Most of the OG '90210' cast got together for a huge fan convention, which was probably good times -- right up until some of them got cheated out of paychecks. Rewind Con went down last month in Chicago, celebrating the 80s and 90s with…
My main advice is listen to my mother-in-law. Men, don’t talk about politics. The post Guidelines for Men on What Not to Talk About at Holiday Gatherings During a Time of Great Political Unrest appeared first on The Good Men Project...
Winter is a good time for sewing, but I have been so busy this fall that I accomplished precisely ZERO winter prep. I understand it’s supposed to snow here in Chicago tomorrow, so I had to hurry and get my outdoor prep all finished today. Things like cutting down my beloved peonies, and raking leaves,...

I was sitting in my basement watching Green Room for the first time (real good flick), and my alarm went off. Uh, PSX is starting! I considered not jumping on, but ultimately my curiosity gave in and I'm glad I did. Because uh, there's...Show More Summary
