Gird your loins. Next year's first game should fall on August 29, 2009. August 29th, as every nerd knows, is Judgment Day (based on Terminator mythos).
Listen, and understand. That RichRod is out there. It can't be bargained with. It can't be reasoned with. It doesn't feel pity, or remorse, or fear. And it absolutely will not stop, ever, until you are dead.
Come with RichRod if you want to live.
