Are there any non MMA topics worth discussing? Other than that monarch butterflies use Earth's magnetic field to navigate when it's cloudy? Besides boring science stuff. I wish I could call in sick on Friday to gorge myself on the NHL draft and a plate of biscuits and gravy, but alas...duty calls. Mmm...biscuits and gravy... more
