Final Thoughts?

Here we are, ladies and gentlemen – my concluding blog entry. I felt going into this year that the end of BB20 would be a good place to leave things, not knowing that this could be where the US BB franchise leaves us. BB19 really bored me to tears with everyone clasping to Paul the […]
