Hull City A.F.C. Tigers

Bryan and I are in the same boat right now when it comes to finding things to write about.

Unfortunately for me, I don’t know much about soccer and this will be my first ever soccer post.

I was wrong, it wasn’t a auto-draft league. Here’s the story: Continue reading

Here is a list of the major awards given out on a yearly basis in the NFL with my picks for who should win each for the 2008 season: Continue reading
