Greetings Silver Sevens, it is I, Adnan. You have gone four straight days without nuggets, but fear not they are back. It was a good long weekend, lots of SG1. Goa'uld are evil. Asgard are helpful. Thirty seven episodes watched in two weeks. Respect.
The Ottawa Senators are streaking, on a 2-1-1 roll and having either won or led in four straight games. Tomorrow night they attempt to win at home for the first time in fifty nine days. On the bright side, the Senators did win in Ontario for the first time in 2011, a road win in Toronto on Saturday.
With that strange introduction, here are today's (and the last few days) links:
