Did this scare the daylights out of anyone else?

Postby nsulham » Tue Aug 05, 2003 2:29 pm

While browsing over my Yahoo league's homepage I came across the headline "Rangers: Rodriguez out for season after hip surgery"
I immediately clicked on the headline to make sure it was another Rodriguez Ranger not named Alex and sure enough it was about Ricardo. Still jolting enough to scare the piss out of me though. Something like seeing "Ricky Williams tears ACL, out for season" in football and having it be Ricky Williams of Indy, not Miami.

I saw it. 8-o My first thought was "What the He** happened to Arod!?" Glad it wasn't him. B-)
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....
