Happy NEW YEAR! I’m your new SD! recapper, as Brad now has classes on thursday nights, so I’ll be covering this show now till the day I die. Or until the semester’s over, whichever comes first.
There are so many people who give their opinions on SD! and RAW, so I wont, unless it’s good or REALLY bad. I also have been cutting back on spoilers, to help boost my interest.
Oh, I also do Heat recaps here too.
