And to get you even more excited for Sunday, here are a few final news items on the show, presented in handy bullet form:
For the longest time we thought it was just a rumor floating around the Internet thanks to rabid Morris Day fans, but the only reason not to spend Feb. 10 at the bar (or at least the only reason to remember to set the DVR before leaving for the bar) is finally, officially confirmed: And in a… More »
