She said the drink is topped with whipped cream, dark caramel drizzle and incorporates a “chocolatey stout flavored sauce.” Despite the stout flavor, the latte does not contain alcohol. She declined to provide further […]

WLUK-TV (http://bit.ly/1qnb0Rx ) reports team president Mark Murphy had said in the past that because the Chesney concert was successful in 2011, the Packers are hoping to […]

    DETROIT (AP) — Don Carey returned a fumble 40 yards for a touchdown, and Detroit’s defensive front smothered Green Bay on Sunday, leading the Lions to a 19-7 victory over Aaron Rodgers and the Packers.

He was sacked twice and threw for only 162 yards, and Green Bay (1-2) wasn’t any better running the ball. Reggie Bush […]

    Another 8th inning lead blown as Brewers lose and fall further back

Buried in May, the Pirates are streaking toward October. Martin’s […]
