After all, there’s at all times Lego Star Wars and Tunic calling my identify, and I nonetheless have not began Kirby and the Forgotten Land exterior of the demo.

John Carson – That is my second yr caring in regards to the NBA playoffs, and my REIGNING, DEFENDING, UNDISPUTED NBA CHAMPIONS, THE MILWAUKEE BUCKS, are able to turn into repeat champs.

We have been brewing all week, and there will likely be some spicy new decks to check out. Talking of Magic, I will be catching up on Loading Prepared Run’s Streets of New Capenna Pre-Pre-Launch after I get residence.
