This week in the world of me I am launching an "expose the bad guys" campaign against Allstate for insurance shenanigans. I try not to call shenanigans unless it's truly necessary, and alas, in this case it is. Read my rant for the whole story here.
Sport King is a tiny shack of a store hidden behind Safeway near the Klondike Hotel. It is owned by Roger McKinnon and has been there for as long as I can remember. It is the last of the traditional owner operated sports stores in Fairbanks. I would drive across town in a blizzard to patronize this store because Roger has done so much for the Fairbanks hockey community. These days every time I pull up here I fear the dreaded "Out of Business" sign, and yet, despite Walmart and Sports Authority and legions of discount crap, Roger soldiers on.
