Glad You Asked: Weekend To-Dos



Dear GYA, It hasn't been easy, but I've spent the entire week prepping my man cave for the Super Bowl. I picked up every flavor of Doritos, I replaced the carpet with artificial turf, and even my wife is dressing up and talking like Richard Sherman until Monday morning.
