It’s said that insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.

This is why I’m here tonight instead of my usual Sundays. Well, that and one of my colleagues had something come up, and I’m nothing if not flexible. Also the whole optimism thing.

And Gregory Polanco seems to be gone for good. I don’t know, we thought that on Sunday and look what happened. But hey, we can talk about it on the game thread. Or on Twitter. Post some funny GIFs. It’s Saturday night, let’s go crazy.
