It's back to the grind for us working folks...and I couldn't be any less happier.  As much as I'd like to always be on vacation, it can't last forever.

We have lots of fun stuff planned for you this week - we're always kicking around crazy ideas here at the Brotherly Game office.  I woke up way too early (6 am) and I am pretty sure that Scott never sleeps.  That's what you call dedications, folks.
