Tickle v. Tackle will not be seen this week, owing to scheduling difficulties and the ferocious tolls imposed upon us (me) by all of the tea-reading, rune-casting, and terrifying bouts of opium-induced prognosticological trance states required to predict the future of MLS 2008. But in the interim, we bring you this special edition of the Tickle v. Tackle . . .

Hey Disney goons! "Go take a flying fuck at a rolling donut!"
