The Dark Side of the Super Bowl

With all the excitement brewing for the 49th annual Super Bowl, there’s no surprise that people don’t want to dampen the mood with talk of the dark underbelly of that day. Even though I am far from what you would call a sports fan, I am rooting my home team on to the win (Go… Read more »

Last Minute Super Bowl Fashion (When You Don’t Have a Jersey)

I know all you sports fans out there are probably rolling your eyes. Your entire family stocked up on jerseys at the beginning of the season. Or, at the very least, some tee shirts. Great – you are set! But if you are like me, the only football game you watch is the Super Bowl…. Read more »
