I am fortunate to have had a few excellent mentors and leaders in my career who believed in me and gave me an opportunity to learn, try and fail.

If you think fans of different teams coalesce around a rival simply due to national affiliation you should probably stop covering sports completely, you clearly don’t understand it.

Is there a sport with more rigid adherence to old tropes and narratives than hockey?

My MacBook Air is hanging on by a 4Gb of RAM thread right now but there’s nothing in the current lineup I feel comfortable buying. This seems not good.
