Christ. Sorry it's late everyone (particularly the two of you bitching down there), but I wound up with killer seats to a baseball game tonight and decided to shirk responsibility until later. How was I to know Sterling was gonna announce a new contest?

Canadian Zimmerisms are gonna have to wait for another day, but I'll post what the most awesome thing is about Canada on Monday's recap. Enjoy.

*- I, too, adore Simon's Quest despite all the evidence
*- Normally, I don't go in for whining about how the internet is making life difficult for gamers, but this is a critical flaw that we should bitch about
*- Best. Contest. Ever.
*- This Start of the Affair is really only so-so, but I'm giving it massive cred for naming practically every Genesis game I would drop anything to play again
