Throwing it Around

The first day of the worst month of the year is over with. We can all hunker down, and get through the struggle that is February together. Pitchers and catchers will be here to save us in a couple of weeks. So watch some hockey, study up on your fantasy baseball documents, or do what ever it is you prefer to pass the time. This is gonna be brutal.
