It's still snowing in Western New York. (What the fuck, snow.) The Bills remain scheduled to play the Jets, but people are dying and trapped and stranded and there's probably no real reason 70,000 people should be on the road at the same time on Sunday. It's sounding like sanity is beginning to prevail: Read more...
There was snow in the air yesterday. SNOW! This is happening too fast. But that means that now, more than ever, is the perfect time to be gaming. In fact, I think I’ll take the whole day off from “Real Life” to get a little gaming in. I’ll probably do some things on my wife’s […]
