What Is The Opposite Of Irony?

Wednesday, March 10th, 2010

Tyler Shreve is one hell of a talented athlete. He's committed to Utah to play quarterback (and could even challenge for a starting job really soon), and is expected to be taken very early in baseball's June draft. Basically, he's the kind of alpha-male jock that everyone wants to be ...

And lo, on the first Thursday in September, the Lord decreed that there should be college football played in all the land. And so it was, and he saw that it was good (Tebow 4:5-6). This is exactly like Christmas, in that it doesn't really feel like time for it to ...
