For most of our lives, August in Missoula meant one thing and one thing only: Fair season!
Today, however, we experience another less fortunate association when someone mentions the month of August: Fire season.
And while the fair gets better and better every year (free admission, anyone?) it seems like the fires get worse: Earlier ...
Last year you let us down.
We're talking about you, Mr. Cool Fantasy Football Dude. Specifically the way you let Ryan Tootell walk away with $500 of YOUR real-life cash with hardly a scrape.

If there's any day worth celebrating, it's Father's Day.
Hear us out: Not only do father's spend enormous amounts of their time and money creating and rearing little ones, but they also make great personal sacrifice.
