The Kia Niro Drives Me To Happiness

I’ve been on this earth for nearly 500 months. I’ve seen more sport, live and in person, in May 2017 than any single month in my life. I did it all in the fuel efficient comfort of my charming, sporty, hybrid beauty, cherry red Kia Niro. The Kia Niro drives […]

Thoughts on the Thunderous Opening Day Applause for Ryan Braun
