Dear College Kids, If You Dress in an Ironically...
gawkercom: When it actually happened- it being, when I was punched in the face by a black man for wearing what I was wearing for Halloween- is a bit of blur. The before part anyway.

Lockout to Leafs?
So with a considerable amount of time on my hands due to the pending labour negotiations of my two favourite sports NFL and NBA I’m reminded of a time when I used to love the NHL and the Leafs more then either of those two sports. With the recent inductions into the Hockey HOF it was great to see Doug Gilmore get his just due. “Killer” was one of the main reasons I loved the Leafs growing up and...
