Over the Weekend: Shopping, Stripping, Watching and Wishing
Anyone else out there try to do any shopping this weekend? The malls were freakin’ packed. The War on Christmas is officially over. What? That was just something Bill O’Reilly made up? Well, call it an easy victory.
Anyway, we did more than just brave the Christmas crowds…

Our sports columnist wrote a letter to the big guy with the white beard. Nope, not God, the other guy. Among the things our columnist wished for: a new ballpark, a press pass, a good draft pick and, of course, a date with Ashley Judd.
Happy holidays, people. (Take that, Bill O’Reilly!) – Keith Plocek
