Smoking breaks at work

I have a colleague who takes the regular breaks like everyone else at work--half hour lunch and two fifteen minute breaks during the day--but during the course of the day, he takes another 5-10 short breaks to go have a cigarette outside. On the flipside of that, I also have a friend who smokes regu...

Offense feeds off the defense. Minnesota clearly has a stronger defense than Seattle does (Minnesota 5th in total defense, Seattle 15th), and Seattle's offense will be rendered ineffective for four quarters, giving Minnesota's ball-control offense all the cushion it needs. Vikings 20, Seahawks 10, ...
