I am the walking dead

And I couldn’t be happier. Apologies to those looking for something other than a third post about basketball, but forgive me my celebration of the second consecutive championship for the Miami Heat. As expected, I couldn’t leave the post game TV coverage despite the wee hours of the morning because I was too enervated to… Read more »

On the other hand…
