First up, Turd Ferguson passes along the latest batch of Randy Moller goal calls.
Next up is J-Mill. Fresh off his front-page feature comes a video that will make you think differently of Alvin and his Chipmunk friends. J-Mill says this ruined his childhood, but I disagree — it makes sense that Alvin liked pot. Lyrics not safe for work.
