Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia, Part 1: Where I’ve Been the Past (Almost) Year

I am really, really upset that all that was offered on ESPN was a recap of the games and some coverage of the Opening and Closing ceremonies.

Where In the World Have I Been? (Articles & Recipes, Part 1)

I haven't been on hardly at all lately.
