I submit two Catherines for consideration:
1. St. Catherine of Siena. Literary giant and inspiration for the Pope returning the Papacy to Rome. Hugely brilliant and influential during an interesting time in European history.
2. Catherine the Great of Russia. She was both enlightened and tyr...

Dude, you ever been to NW Arkansas? It's booming and beautiful and there is more culture there than most places in the South.

I know someone who played at MIT for a bit before concussions forced him to quit.
They quasi-recruit for the sport, but no one is under any illusion that the players are anything but legitimate student-athletes, with the student aspect far outweighing the athlete part. It really was an easy deci...

It was so frustrating feeling sure that the moment Morgan got tackled on the 1, Saints weren't going to score a TD, then also feeling sure the Ravens would answer with a score.
Team plays like a bunch of losers this year. LA football is just depressing this year....

As others have said, the main thing that kills me is when someone adds ketchup or steak sauce to a quality cut of steak. It hides the flavor of one of the tastiest things you can eat. If you enjoy A-1, only use it on crap cuts. DO NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES ask for it at an elite steakhouse. It...

Gordon and Gurley are elite RB talents.
They are better than plug and play RBs most NFL teams have, even if the position is highly devalued currently.
If neither is drafted in the first round, they should conspire to light a bag of dogsh*t on fire on Trent Richardson's lawn....

The guy simply can't deal with being hit anymore, which is a problem considering he's a big-bodied receiver who operates predominately between the hashes.
If Colston drops another routine pass or fumbles again after a routine hit, I may break a TV.
For flat screens everywhere, he either needs ...
