3 Gridiron Goods for Girls

By Glenn T, published on Sep 6, 2011

...inches and yards. It’s also no secret that the fairer sex is about as interested in this annual revival as their hairy-knuckled counterparts are in Sex & the City, Cosmo or anything Danielle Steele has ever written. But, while there is never a good reason for a man to watch Lifetime television, here are three reasons ladies should tune into a little pigskin:

1. Quality Time. It’s not easy being a man these days. The modern day man is about as useful to a woman as a jock strap (and only slightly more comfortable). Ladies can now do most of the things we used to be able to... (more)

I can only describe it as death by television. What a favour Hain and his kind would have done the BNP if Griffin had been prevented from appearing. Then he could have depicted himself as a martyr instead of the fool that the world was allowed to see and hear.

Glee Recap: A Very Glee Christmas

By The Tweeting Quill, published on Dec 10, 2010

Nothing makes singing acceptable quite like the holidays — well, at least McKinley High’s gleeks thought so. In this week’s episode of Glee, the gang tries to help raise funds for a charity by caroling inside the classrooms. This, however, was met with a hostile reception from the students and one really pissed off teacher.

Meanwhile, Sue (Jane Lynch) sabotages the Faculty’s “Secret Santa” by writing her name on all the papers. Unfortunately, Will (Matthew Morrison), Emma (Jayma Mays) and Coach Beiste (Dot-Marie Jones) already bought their presents when they learned about the scam.
