Golden Nuggets: Practice Squad Set; Key Players Skip Practice

Hello everyone. I'm back from my days off and the big news was cut day. By now you should all know what happened and who got the pink slip. Anthony Dixon making the team has still surprised some people. What about the people who didn't make the team? Well, you can tell their value by how quickly some were swooped up by other teams. The three guys to get picked up were Konrad Reuland, Chris Owusu and Mike Person.

Sorry that it's a bit messy on the lay out today and there's no reviews. I've got to keep it short and sweet because it's Australian Father's Day. I don't know if that means you have to be Australian to get praise heaped on you but you never know. So just in case....Happy Australian Father's Day. I'm off to dinnner. So say 'thanks' to all the Australian dads you know out there and I'll be back with a bigger, better Nuggets tomorrow.
