The Nationals Got A Good One In Before The World Ended At Least

Good morning from the Virginia wilderness. We are about to head out into the woods, but Lord Rumplefoot is finishing off his breakfast of Impala steaks and ostrich eggs. His loyal servant Chonsey is shoveling it to him. This gives me a little time to get some blogging done. So how bout that game last [...] Continue reading
