Remember those two dreaded words? after the intense backlash to Trump’s presidency with the Women’s march, in the months that followed, as atrocity after atrocity piled up, and daily life seemed to devolve into one long, endless episode of “One Flew Over The Cuckoos Nest,” many people feared that the...

Shit just got real   Anonymous Look, we all know that things are not always what they appear to be.

When it comes to the 2018 midterms, I’ve been saying it for at least the last 6 weeks now, “Play like you’re ten points down with 2:00 left to go in the game.”The numbers don’t matter, the intensity don’t matter, none of it means jack if you don’t get “souls to...

Oh boy, do I ever get this one. If there's one thing that a lifelong Cubs fan knows, it's the surefire signs of lemonade making. Because, when your beloved team brings an 18 wheeler of them up from Arizona every April and puts them on the field, making lemonade out...
