‘Once In A Blue Moon’ Is Happening Again This Halloween

This year, there will be a full moon on Halloween. This makes it a “blue moon,” since it’s the second full moon in one calendar month. This phenomenon usually happens around every 2.7 years. So maybe something that happens “once in a blue moon” isn’t actually that rare after all.

Cincinnati Bengals trade Carlos Dunlap to Seattle Seahawks

CINCINNATI — The Bengals’ career sack leader is on the move.

Nor will it serve to enter a continental final, but the 93rd minute proved once again that Real Madrid is capable of making the impossible come true. He was on the canvas in the 87th minute and the character of the King of Europe appeared to save his neck. He avoided a dramatic defeat,

Cyberpunk 2077 is delayed again to December 10th

“The biggest challenge for us right now is shipping the game on current-gen,

Modric continues making merits to renew

AND he Real Madrid this season must settle the future of two of its most emblematic players: Sergio Ramos and Modric. In the case of the Croatian, who received a shirt with his 350 matches in white from the hands of Florentino Pérez on the plane back to Madrid , his match against Barça has served to verify that if Madrid is capable of dosing and caring for his number 10, there is not one like it and it would be a mistake to leave for free in June since his contract ends.
