Drew Brees' 20th season will make him the 20th player in NFL history to have hit that mark.

Despite my recent absence from the site, life goes on.
And one of the things that was on my agenda despite all the horribleness was having tickets to the Valentine's Day taping of "Friday Night Smackdown". The date itself wasn't a problem for WineWife. She hates Valentine's Day, and any attempt
