Too many questions.

As always, I remain obscure and nebulous - never divulging too much information.

A passing cloud on a summer's day? That was me. The ash floating in the air beside you as a smoker passes by? That was me. The one time you got diarrhea in a T.G.I. Fridays? That was me.

I am everywhere, and yet, I am nowhere.


Some call me a hero. Some call me a villain. I prefer the name.....Grey.






Seriously, I'm a college student. Not much more to it.

I definitely want one, but I can't justify spending 325 bucks on something to put beer in that will get warm before i drink it... but it would be awesome for a party.

Too bad none of my roomates like hockey!

Also how much are Winterhawks tickets usually? If you know.

Also how much are Winterhawks tickets usually? If you know.
There's a ton of Steeler fans and a lot of Steeler friendly bars here but the one with the raffles would be the A & L Sports Pub. It's a hole in the wall, but a high class hole in the wall. Very rowdy with chanting and yelling for the duration of the game. I've been there for a few games and it's always a good time.

Winterhawk tickets are relatively inexpensive, especially if you're used to paying NHL prices.
