I would also offer than EE and Bruce are on different planes when it comes to makeup. I have no idea just how important makeup is in a guy's ability to reach his potential. But if it were a skill on the 20-80 scale, Bruce would be like a 70 to EE's 40.
Am I the only one flabbergasted by the fact that RedsManRick used "makeup" to argue a position? Seriously. My flabber is gasted all over the place. Granted, he used some numbers to help make the point, but still ... I'll bet he had to shower after posting that.
