Nobody cares. We all got sorrows.

At a farmers' market, I witnessed a taco vendor futilely try to sell a white mother on beef tongue, and thought, "This is why hockey will never be popular in America."

"You're not even gonna try some lengua?" I thought. "It's delicious!"

On paper, hockey is a sport that Americans should love. It's violent, it's chock-full of action…

Alas, it's also somewhat foreign – like sashimi.

I feel that the LGBT pride flag should be re-designed into something less…fabulous, something that would less re-inforce stereotype. At the same time, I love how brazen the rainbow is. It's literally flamebait.

    For its launch, Surge representatives distributed free bottles of Surge at my high school.
