All things considered, the bookmakers appear to have this line wrong on Gladys, and her upcoming anthem performance is probably going to go over 107 seconds. I was tempted to bet the over, but when I was confronted with the prospect of having to convert real money into Bitcoin in order to place a bet on an offshore site, I decided to abort.

I hate all the fluff. I just want to watch a damn football game.

I just hope that in a close game the Rams' coaching staff has the cojones to do what the Eagles did last year, and play to win. You don't beat New England with field goals.
A most unfortunate, Freudian, double entendre is that hotel named "Budget Inn."

That was my highlight as well. The TMobile one's were pretty good. The xbox one had the 'feels' for me. Well done there.
