Blues down + Steam down = No reason to live.

Pizza?
Girls who eat pizza?
Girls who BRING pizza?
Games?

I mean, come ON! There's PLENTY of reasons!

'I am' is reportedly the shortest sentence in the English language. Could it be that 'I do' is the longest sentence? - GC

The toughest non-game outage evar!

It was still shorter than EA's outage, and at 1/100th the resources at that.
There was an EA outage? I never noticed.

Couldn't you have just rolled down your van's window and yelled across the street while Blue was shoveling? Drummer

Hahahahahaha. Jeraxle wins.

BTW (now that I have space to bitch) the bookface page for Blue's has more readers (2201) than the twitter account(1492), but (most) updates were going on the twitter account only...wazzupwithdat?


i'd see posts like the Irrational one, and feel like a mute. Comments really make this site special.
