So before we start anything, I would like to have a moment of silence for the 96 who lost their lives at Hillsborough on the date on the banner above. You'll never walk alone.

And whomever was looking forward to a "Playoff Game of the Day" post today, I am sorry. I had a basketball all-stars game at my school to do today and made it just in time to catch the second period instead of watching the game on a phone. But you get a news update! (Again, sorry!)
