Tuesday, January 6th, 2015

We said goodbye to Stuart Scott this week, which is sad. But death makes us celebrate life and bring up joyful memories which had long been forgotten. It is the best way of coping with such things, I suppose. One of those memories is of Scott's debut at ESPN -- specifically ...

ESPN: Bad At Geography
