Discussing the Hobey Baker Finalists

Yesterday, the 10 finalists for this year’s Hobey Baker Award were announced.

At the end of the season, that still holds true. Six of the ten finalists for the award were defensemen. And it was much deserved because those defensemen scored at a truly incredible rate this year. I mentioned in the pr...

Redistricting Edge Saved GOP From Deeper Midterm Losses

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — Democrats won more votes, regained control of the U.S. House and flipped hundreds of seats in state legislatures during the 2018 elections.

But we've made it through the tough times. And now as we patch things up when we do have our differences, we joke that we're staying together because it would be a bigger hassle to divorce. Sometimes, though, couples can't work through their troubles and decide to officially end their marriages. When that happens, among...
