MLK HS, NYC --After starting the season a blistering 5-1, the Joes are 3 of the last 4 and its not readily apparent just what's knocked their train off the track. On the other hand, Booty Patrol has won 2 of their last 3--the one loss a game they feel they should have won (more...)
Duke is back on his classic rock thing... this one's too easy to have a giveaway for but if you guess the song on the thing after the thing... you know, what comes after something... when it's over and there's more... an epilogue?
