Re: Happy Inauguration Day (and beyond- The Biden Presidency Thread part I)

Confirmed because CNN and the new admistration that wants to deflect says it? Or was it the infamous "sources" that they cite. Come on dog. You realize CNN is as much a lefty mouthpiece as Fox is right. I get your point, and a Biden staffer telling something to CNN doesn't make it a fact, but the f...

Lawrence is the kind of guy that Belichick holds to like 130 yards and 3 picks.
