Jeez. Talk about HATING coming back to work. This sucks. But, at least the new Athlon and Lindy's books are out, so I get to read up a little bit on other teams that I haven't paid a lot of attention to.
Sardis was awesome. If you'd like to read up on a few things that transpired, go check out the band page - myspace.com/prosevere.
