Not much to it really. Was upstairs, heard some unfamiliar rustling downstairs. Walked down thinking it was my roommate, and there was some crack-head standing there with a bunch of 360 games under one arm and a non-working laptop under the other.

I grabbed him when he went for the door, he dropped the games, hit me. Then the fiend ran onto our screened-in patio area, he did a little fiend shoulder juke, slipped and dropped the laptop. I ran after him, threw him to the ground and was punching him/restraining him while he was screaming "I DIDNT TAKE NOTHING" and me screaming "ROBBER!!!"

In the end, nobody came to help. I didn't have a phone on me and I was in sandals with no shirt (it was snowing outside). And the dude was going crazy trying to bite me and stuff. So not wanting to fight a crack-head to the death/unconsciousness, I just let him go and he ran away.

Had he not been greedy he could've done pretty well for himself that day and gotten off without a hitch. Such is life.

Little doubt in my mind it will eventually expand to 8 teams. More money for everyone, after all.

Yes, this sentiment has been expressed before. You will receive 10-15 upvotes before the sun sets.

I guess my point would be: I didn't ask to write five Skull Sessions a week. Me writing all five weekly Skull Sessions was something ordained from the top. So I guess, like with the site redesign, you're stuck with my blistering #hot #takes on the #death of the #NCAA. 

Apologies, though. It also doesn't help this is the absolute doldrums of the off-season and there's not much news other than NCAA bureaucratic bullshit. (I covered a SmackTalk t-shirt today, for pete's sake.)

I'm an idiot, but it's fixed. Thanks, friend.

I've been down that wormhole too many times than I'd like to admit.
