Who Cares About the Low NBA Finals TV Ratings

They don’t bother me one bit. Of course I’m not the one selling advertising on my multi-million dollar finals TV deal, but still.

Would you let Lenny Dykstra Give you Stock Tips?

Dude, as freaky as a player as he was, dipping with a whole can of chaw in his jaw, what makes you think I would actually take his advice on trading stocks? The guy had no clue about the pitchers he was facing, no memory, no game day preparation, but I’m supposed to listen to…Read More

White Sox Are Wheeeezing the Juice
