It's the most wonderful time of the year!!! Thus, all the gifs this week are dedicated to Dunk City! Let's the madness begins:

That's all the announcements for this week, but one more thing as we anticipate March Madness, St. Peter and Satan were having an argument one day about basketball. Satan proposed a game to be played on neutral grounds between a select team from the heavenly host and his own hand-picked boys. “Very well,” said the gatekeeper of Heaven. “But you realize that we’ve got all the good players and the best coaches.” “I know, and that’s all right,” Satan answered unperturbed. “We’ve got all the refs.”

Peace Brothers,
Nhat Nguyen
