Greece? I'm pretty sure Portugal will smear Greece if they play them. Germany, probably not, but when CR is on a tear, it is definitely possible.

Arkansas High School Coach Never Punts

Looks like if you prepare properly, you can shut Pulaski down.

True. However, the strategy DID take them to the state title game, so something's working well.

Luke Scott talks Nugent, hunting and Obama origin

Don't worry. The Yankee and Red Sox fans will help fill the stadium when the teams visit.

Yeah, they already do that. I'd just like to get some more dough when, you know, the Royals are in town.

NBA Referee Lock-out

You are right. I do side with the worker.

The NBA makes a shitload of money. Let everyone get paid handsomely.

And having worked for some totally unscrupulous shitbags in my time, unions have not outlived there usefulness. Maybe they need to be better run, but organized workers? There's a need as long as greed can run unchecked.
