Today In History

evil empireRonald Reagan, in a March 8, 1983 speech to the National Association of Evangelicals in Orlando, called the Soviet Union an “evil empire”:

They preach the supremacy of the state, declare its omnipotence over individual man and predict its eventual domination of all peoples on the Earth. They are the focus of evil in the modern world….

Mike Yeo wants a sandwich

Yeo wants it so bad he can taste it.

In the past week, I’ve flown to every Conference III city (except Winnipeg, but I was in Atlanta, so that counts, right?) to do some scouting and what I learned might surprise you.  You see, I did evaluate some players, but more importantly, I discovered the one thing that all Conference III coaches have in common.  That, [dear readers], is the inability to resist a fresh, hot, and juicy [sandwich].  Just mention the word and Mike Yeo’s mouth starts to salivate.  Hopefully teams in other divisions won’t learn of this kryptonite.  Don’t believe me?  I wish it weren’t true either, but here’s the proof:
