I both hate and love stumbling into chapters of American history that I know nothing about. I hate it, because I feel like I got robbed a little bit or missed something in school or college and I love it because there's absolutely nothing like the jo ...more

The last three years or so have seen something of a soccer mecca invade America. NBC Sports started broadcasting the Premier League. Fox Sports 1, not to be outdone, picked up both the UEFA Champions League and the FA Cup. If you love soccer, between ...more

Man, Book #3 of The Expanse goes to some dark places and explores some dark themes, but it's still doesn't miss a beat and all the old characters, the break neck pace and space opera of the highest calibre come back for another adventure. The protomo ...more
