Love Not The Wronger

Sunday morning - a quiet suburban household before breakfast “Family meeting!” Each person in the house dreaded those words. No one likes talking about their feelings ever, unless there are cameras and a paycheque, and the situation is always worse when the person at the perceived centre of the tension refuses to

Dok Zymm – International Woman of Mystery – Chapter 1

Author's Note: This series of posts is borne out of my firm belief that Commentist Dok Zymm is actually a secret agent for a nefarious secret agency currently unknown to the general public or even Congress. Her current job serves as a perfect cover to gather intelligence while her

Your Sexy Soccer Saturday Early Morning Open Thread

Due to Halloween happening on Thursday this week and our talented writers regaling you with their spooky tales, I did not do a Thirsty Thursday soccer preview post this week. As luck has it, though, King Hippo was unavailable to do this morning's soccer post, so here we are.

Balls on ASSignment: Thursday Night Football Review Week Eight

Welcome back! Last night, we got the still-undefeated San Francisco 49ers going against the Arizona Cardinals in Phoenix. This meant that the "home" crowd had a healthy mix of away fans and people in town with nothing to do. It was a good game for a bit and then
