Apologies for the lack of attention paid to last night's game -- things are a bit busy around TUC HQ. A win's a win, even if I wasn't overly convinced. Is it just me, or did the tandem of Meszaros and Commodore lead to involuntary muscle twitching for all viewers? No matter...let's give credit for the win to Sherry's new mascot and Brian Lee's overgrown haircut.

While we're on the subject of pets -- I know some of you have noticed an addition to the "About Me" section in the top right-hand corner. I guess it's about time she makes her debut:

The beagle shown here is Miss Eleanor Southworth Ewing -- better known as Miss Ellie. She's named after Barbara Bel Geddes' epic matriarchal character on Dallas, and appears to be fitting in nicely at TUC's household. She's a bit of a tomboy, so we imagine she could eventually take after Kent and offer her own take on the entry draft.

TUC is a firm believer in helping out animals in trouble -- Miss Ellie was discovered at a shelter in Almonte through Petfinder, but going directly to the various chapters of the Humane Society is also an excellent choice for anyone looking for a pet. Please check out any rescue options first before considering a breeder or pet store -- stray animals need homes too.

Thanks for listening. More later.
