In a pretty big move for minor league indoor football coverage, the Indoor Football League announced Tuesday that is has reached a deal with YouTube to broadcast all 2017 games live and free online.
This past Friday we missed the 21st birthday of one of the craziest things to ever happen in sports.
Those of you who follow hockey will probably know that I am of course talking about the Glow Puck, which debuted on Jan. 20, 1996 at the NHL All-Star game in Boston. That’s right, the Glow Puck is now old enough to have a beer. Sorry for making you feel old.

One of my goals in life is to live in a town that has some sort of minor league baseball or hockey team and become a season ticket holder, wasting my life away at games on weekend’s, drinking $8 Bud Lights.
Today, that dream became a reality.
On Friday I was bored at work and wrote out some random thoughts, a couple of which were pertaining to fast food and how they were the among my Top-5 fast food items of all-time.
