When you write sports at a website like WFNY for a while you get to know your own kinds of fans. As many of you know my house is divided from a football perspective because my wife grew up in Indianapolis. I spared you my wife being on the podcast, but my brother-in-law is very much a similar kind of football fan to what I think we cater to at WFNY, so I talked to him for about ten...

chill pill

Liike so many of you, I've been at a loss since Monday.  I wrote a short post, but have received no comments on it.  This leads me to believe that you are just as tired of seeing and saying the same things.
