    If you ask me to join your fantasy baseball league and I select Legolas in the first round, don't be angry at me. It's not my fault I've read up on the players and you haven't.

    Went to a party once and was introduced to the guy hosting it--Harry Cox.

    Worked with a guy named Mike Cox, he was married to Anita at the time.

    He may have lifted the topic from Fox Sports Radio. A few weeks back, Steve Czaban did this topic. He had a maternity-ward nurse on who had seen a baby go through her ward whose name was pronounced shuh-thed, but spelled ****head. I trust that you can figure out the word that the board won't show.

    When introduced to her husband Harry, I about sprayed the little cup of punch I was drinking.

    Our family always got a kick out of Dick Sweeney advertising in the 70s, but still giggle at the mention of Jake Sweeney Chevrolet.

    I worked with a girl named Robin Hood.

    There are ads in phone books and all over here in Charlotte for Mr. Richard Peniston. I thought it was a joke when I first saw it.
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    We always used to prank funny names we found in the phone book. "Spooky Tooth" was always interesting but our favorite person to prank must have been Harry Lipschitz.

    We'd say "If yer Lipschitz, My A$$ talks!"
    Witty signature.

    When I lived in Texas the Butts name is VERY common there, one of the largest grocery chains is the HEB... named after it's founder, Hebert Edward Butts.... Worked with a Mike Butts, and his wife's name was Tracy....
    In those things which we commit to practice we can master, and with mastery we have the freedom to use these skills whenever we desire, without this practice we are slaves to our inability.
