Most high school students beginning their college search will probably tell you that there's a little more to choosing a college than just educational opportunities (much to their parents chagrin).

In fact, there's actually a "Fantasy Football Fanatics" LinkedIn group. For real folks. According to a 2010 Sports Illustrated article, it's estimated that close to 20 million people play.

It's that time again— ghosts, goblins, princesses and pirates roaming the streets, asking for candy. Halloween!
People LOVE this time of year. The air is crisp. Leaves are turning and falling to the ground. What better time to have a party!
