Nobody's... I had a couple thousand posts at central. (clearly none of them memorable, but I was in the cc fatty challenge and got second place, even though I looked way better than that fat mf'er who shut it down)

Alas, RL took over. I didn't see where people migrated to. Then I got here and RL took over again. Things are normal again and I missed the boards. So here I is.

A long time ago, a baseball player remarked: "If I owned a ballclub, I'd hire a $5,000 coach and a $15,000 scout."

Doug McLean has been consistantly slamming Torts for years.

Nothing new, he has an irrational hatred for the man....

LOL, I know...awesome...Hey, I like Torts I also like MacLean. They don't mince words.

I sure hope Torts doesn't change. That will be a colossal disaster. I want to see Bill Laforge like lunacy behind the bench.

I think the only person who would agree with you on that would be someone like Spidey.

Torts is an intense hothead but he possesses stellar coaching skills (unlike Laforge).

PJ Stock has a better resume than McLean
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.

Oh yeah.

That'll tell you where my heads at these days. I thought you were talking about some swing set I may have mentioned for my kids! But I couldn't think of anything.

Frack, with the kids my golf swing is non-existent. I did take them to the driving range last week though. I do miss golfing!

You can't agree with him before I do :evil:

Dear Mr. RoyalDude, you're hockey aptitude is beyond comprehension, your dilettante way of expressing foul attitude towards CBC's Hockey Night In Canada is bordering on maudlin.

I concur!
I love every move Jim Benning makes 8-)
