A lot of football games have been on lately. Really “important” games. Of course neither the Broncos nor the (ahem) Vikings are playing anymore. So, naturally, I’ve been rooting for San Francisco. Why?! Because I like California. And this is how I pick who to cheer for. Silly, I know. But now we’re down to Giants and Patriots… what to [Read more >>]
