Calathes makes history to send Panathinaikos into the playoffs

It was never going to be easy but Panathinaikos really went all out on drama in the Euroleague regular season, leaving themselves with a must win game in the final round to decide their fate. Then Nick Calathes decided this, of all nights, was the one to end Euroleague’s greatest drought. Emmet Ryan was in the Oaka It was calm, really calm.

We were sold such a twisted-logic of lies that it would be funny.. if it were not so dangerous. Elites with armed bodyguards tell us to give up our tools of self-defense. We’re...

REVIEW: Pepperidge Farm Cinnamon Chocolate Milano Cookies

Pepperidge Farm’s Cinnamon Chocolate Milano Cookies are a season-appropriate variety of the famous cookie. They feature a layer of semi-sweet chocolate and another layer of cinnamon-flavored white confection between two crispy wafers. It’s something I’m surprised the brand hasn’t done before. Because Milano cookies have been around for decades and the sweet spice has been around for millenniums. The aroma that comes out of the packaging makes me want to shove the entire contents into my mouth ...
