Seeing as how most of you have better things to do — like, you know, have a life — on the weekends, we thought it might be a sound idea to give y’all a recap of all of the “good” stuff you missed while away having said life.
So, we’ll try plucking some of the story lines from the weekend and drop them into a single post for your convenience because we realize what kind of a PITA clicking the “Next” button a couple of times can be.
And, Larry Mazza, if this goes over like a fart in church, it’s on your head. Although, seeing as your heritage allows you to know “people”, I won’t raise a stink if it bombs. If for nothing more than I really don’t feel like sleeping next to a lopped-off equine dome.
Anyway, off we go, and please give a thumbs-up or thumbs-down to this latest endeavor in the comments section below…
