During a phone call I had with him ...

Canadian Weapon of Mass Destruction: Part 2

This informative continuation of my interview with Eva Bartlett couldn’t come at a better time. Recently as you know, Iranian General Qassam Soleimani was murdered in Iraq by the United States government who were all too eager to take responsibilty for the kill. At the very least, it was a gross violation of International Law, and a slap in the face to the Iraqi government who ...

Dude, You’re All Over the Map !!!

…but in a physical and musical kind of way; B4 going any further, click the above if you haven’t already.

“Maybe we can talk all night, but that ain’t getting us nowhere”. I am not quite sure if singer Meatloaf wrote this song as a prophecy for your Hounds, but in any event it’s fitting.Fitting as the Hounds won two of three games during the most recent homestand.
