However, fans were searching for a different kind of answer following the Flyers first round exit in this year’s Stanley Cup Playoffs at the hands of the hated Pittsburgh Penguins.

(Click HERE for Part I) The Next Step It’s been a long few months since I was first hospitalized after the Pulmonologist was alarmed by my chest x-ray. I am beyond happy to be done with chemotherapy, and to be growing my hair back. While I will miss the nurses that I saw when I would go into the infusion room, I will not miss that infusion room for one
What’s Wrong With Me? We thought it was just a cold. Back in late February, I came down with a cough and had a runny nose. The first thing you figure is “It’s just a cold”. Naturally, that was the initial thought. Things changed when the runny nose stopped, but the coughing didn’t. In fact, the coughing lingered and ultimately grew worse.

“No Good Deed Goes Unpunished” After 12 episodes and 39 days, the Survivor: Game Changers finale came, and wasn’t without drama and history. At the previous tribal council, things took a turn when Cirie tried to steal Sarah’s vote. However, even though Sarah handed Cirie the advantage, the advantage itself was non-transferable.

“Reinventing How the Game Is Played” This week, as expected, one alliance fell as another one formed. The merged Maku Maku tribe came back to camp with half of the tribe in shock. Meanwhile, the other half came back feeling empowered after shifting the balance of power within the tribe. The original alliance of six featuring Brad (Culpepper), Debbie, Sierra, Sarah, Troyzan, and Tai, fell, as Sarah decided to
“The Merge” Apologies for the delay, as it has been a chaotic couple of weeks. It has also been chaotic over the last three episodes of Survivor: Game Changers. The tribes have finally merged into one, and it took no time at all for the castaways’ individual game plans to come to light. Sierra kickstarted the argument against Hali, as she believed that she had a hidden immunity idol. With
“What Happened on Exile, Stays on Exile” The Queen has finally been knocked off of her throne. Last week, two-time winner Sandra Diaz-Twine was finally voted off, ending her (combined) 94-day run on Survivor.
