XB23c20x_400x400

It’s an interesting world. Woke up this morning to the news that Bill Simmons is leaving ESPN, after spending my hour of gym time last night watching SportsCenter and pretty much losing my mind.

Last night, while jumping around the information superhighway, I realized that The Review, my college newspaper, has most of its archives online.
