Ghosts of Ross Bridge: Ch 42

Kevin knew the ghosts were still on some people’s minds, if not on their tongues. He could see the signs. Take the tunnel, for example.

Plus-One Playoff Format

This morning I impulsively fired off an email to a couple of my favorite sports writers whose opinions I respect.
