PIGSKIN PICKS: Ushering in Week 3
Madden 17 hit stores this week. Normally, I would have picked up a copy by now, but my XBox is collecting dust in the bedroom. Sad. Since the addition of Gizmo and Pepper Jack, I don’t have any time to game. The pups constantly want to go for walks. Pepper Jack is fascinated with mud puddles, while Gizmo is afraid of anything that moves. When I’m not walking the two, I’m working, working out or watching the Marine...
