After 740 miles and 13 hours of driving yesterday, we have a new addition to the family - an 8 week old Boston Terrier. Unfortunately, our family Christmas was canceled because of weather but we did get the dog. He's sitting right by me now as I type. I imagine he'll become an integral part of the Arrowhead Pride team.
I have to give Joel major props for putting together some great stories yesterday on Christmas. It made the drive that much easier to get through.

"He was just in the wrong situation at the wrong time. We all knew that when he got his opportunity, he would take advantage," Palmer said.
