Another rat here. Just waiting for 2011 to start to forget about all of the injuries and set backs of the Fall and move to the future. Shit's about to get real.
Anyone else ready for 2011? As I wait for our "official" New Year, I'll be toasting it up with my friends every time the clock strikes midnight somewhere else. We may or may not make it to the Blues game.
Also, can this time next year bring a Winter Classic to Missouri?

For those of you following along at home, here's a countdown of each new year. [timeanddate]
I'm not gonna lie. I know nothing about Idaho State's Kamil Gawrzydek. In fact, I've been attempting to pronounce his name for the better part of the hour, and I've gotten as far as GAWR. But, I do know one thing - this free throw is fucking ridiculous.
One last thing - All-Star voting ends Monday. Have YOU voted? I have, so many times that I statistically should win that trip to Raleigh.
