THE HEADLINE IS NOT THE ALLUSION YOU THINK IT IS. OKAY, I LIED.
You try coming up with a decent headline for this roundup everyday. It’s harder than it looks. Not that I’m complaining. I mean, I get to post photos of guys wearing animal costumes in the stands with balls in their mouths and call it a “public service” only somewhat ironically. Score. Follow. Like. Rock your kicks and prosper.
