    With the huge amounts of unclaimed money that I've won I am going to buy the Reds and then run a Redszone lottery among the membership for the GM position!

    GAC-didn't you read that? You have failed to keep this confidential. I'm tempted to to make my own claim now.

    GAC, if you can stand to change e-mail addresses, I'd recommend signing up for a gmail account. In over two years of having one, I think one or two pieces of spam have made it through. And only one "real" e-mail has ever gotten caught in the spam folder by mistake. The gmail filters are excellent.
    There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.

    Take the Pounds, GAC. The exchange rate is far more favorable.

    You beat me to it. GMail is the god of email.
    I hope it's never sunny in Philly again.

    But have you seen the cost of one of those little blue pills?

    I can get the same results from a 12 pack of beer. Plus the pill doesn't make women look any better. Beer does.

    Yeah. I've had a problem with confusing the Viagra with the Aleeve. Mix them up and you're both in pain and in an awkward situation.
