When I was little, my mom would take us to the Newport News Public Library on Saturdays and make a bee line for the video section.

I just finished a full re-watching of Criminal Minds – I blame TikTok users for posting clips of the show, which reminded me that, oh yeah, I used to like watching that. In turn, I spent the past several weeks catching up with Garcia, Reid, Rossi, Morgan, JJ, and Prentiss over 15 seasons and two...

Over the years, I’ve grown to love the UCLA women’s soccer team as well as the Texas women’s soccer team, but unfortunately, they were eliminated within the first round.  I was absolutely...
