Pac-12 Football Preview and Predictions Week 6


Last week I made the mistake of choosing Arizona over Oregon State because I keep expecting the Beavers to lose, and it cost me.

The Book Monster Vol. 6


Upon arriving at the spa they sat me down in a massage chair, which was equipped with a foot-soaking basin, and I tried relaxing as I waited for them to begin. After about a minute of relaxing I wished I had something to read because I often find that reading is the only way I can relax. This edition: Crazy for the Storm, Red, and Schott's Sporting Gaming and Idling.
