In a single, horrific speech in front of the Senate this afternoon, Maine Sen. Susan Collins, who has fashioned herself as both a moderate and one of the few pro-choice Republicans left in the Senate, showed us who she’s always been, and announced she will vote for Brett Kavanaugh to be the next Associate Justice of the Supreme Court, thus ensuring his confirmation to the bench.

White Sox first baseman José Abreu will miss his team’s upcoming series with the Indians, as he was hospitalized and treated for “an ingrown hair infection in his right thigh.” That’s disconcerting and gross enough on its own, but when combined with the fact that Abreu just underwent surgery for a “strangled testicle” on August 20, it’s just been a really bad month to be in the general...View more »
We have an extremely good controversy out of Southern Ontario’s Intercounty Baseball League, where the Barrie Baycats took down the Kitchener Panthers last week in a six-game series for their fifth straight championship.
And in that deciding Game 6, a “former St. Louis Cardinals prospect” named Starlin Rodriguez hit a...View more »
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers improved to 2-0 on this young season by beating the defending champion Philadelphia Eagles 27-21 this afternoon. They won the game thanks in large part to backup quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick, who will be elevated to the Bucs’ Plan A if he keeps playing like this.
Fitzpatrick is starting the first three games of the Buccaneers’ season while Jameis Winston serves a...View more »
Good morning! Meghan Markle is pregnant. It’s official, it’s confirmed, and they’re past the three-month mark.

La primera vez que pruebas algo, revisas su diseño y sus nuevas funciones, pero incluso después de horas, sigue sin serte familiar. La primera vez que me senté y jugué una partida al PUBG Mobile en el nuevo Razer Phone 2, terminé pidiendo pollo para cenar. ¿Fui yo o fue el teléfono? Todavía no estoy seguro.
A primera vista, y especialmente en la parte frontal, el Razer Phone 2 parece casi
As exciting as three new iPhones and a new Apple Watch with a built-in ECG may (or may not) have been for you, there were lot of updates for other Apple products that we expected to see last week, but didn’t get.
This left many wondering if Apple was going to simply hold off on announcing anything else until 2019, or whether the company had another event planned for later this fall. Well,...View more »
I trotted out to the Co-op a little earlier to pick up a few bits and bobs that expanded a bit to include a Spatchcock Chicken, an apple and blackberry pie and some Lemon Drizzle Kit-Kats. Not sure about the wisdom of that last one? The Co-op does a little compact magazine once a month, which they call Food. Other magazines of the same name are available at other supermarkets. Today they had...View more »

Last week, Oklahoma State head coach Mike Gundy went and shot himself in the dick when he attempted to smother any stories about the transfer of receiver Jalen McCleskey by threatening to revoke access from any reporters who asked about McCleskey. On Monday, during his weekly Big 12 coaches call with reporters, some media-friendly pranksters got their revenge. Here’s a transcript of the...View more »
So, I bought some wheels for the GX. Now I have to decide on tires. I’ll unveil the whole package later. I would like some advice.
I was doing some research and I don’t think I want KO2's. I hear they sometimes have trouble getting them balanced. Also, I am somewhat cheap and I want something with a good milage warranty. Which brings me to my two top contenders.

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey takes the series to its earliest setting ever, way back to ancient Greece during the Peloponnesian War. Heather and I have dug into the game for the past two weeks, and the first thing that stood out to both of us was how colorful the world looks and how varied the scenery is. From beaches with giant palm trees and clear blue waves crashing on the blinding sand, to...View more »

When Marvel and Disney released the six Marvel Rising: Initiation animated shorts this summer, the assumption (reinforced by Marvel) was that they would serve as a calling card for the then-upcoming Secret Warriors TV movie, showing off the fun and breezy potential of these heroes. The shorts were brief but spirited, and while they were clearly targeted toward the tween audience, decent...View more »
