With the tragic school shooting in Connecticut on Friday, the hot-button issue is gun control or the lack thereof, but it's an issue I could care less about. In fact, this is the last time I'm going to use the word "gun" or mention firearms in this blog.

A Tragic Day in American History

Posted 01-28-2012 at 02:06 PM by saintfan

All eligible pictures will receive a $5 KFC gift check which can be used to purchase KFC Hot Wings for watch parties.

Need some ideas?
