It looks like one way or another Harold will have another job fairly soon.

I really can’t properly convey what he said in his speech to us, but can only tell you, if you were there you wouldn't believe these S.H. allegations. It’ll take more proof than there was against O.J.


I've seen many non-Christians show very strong moral convictions and conversely many outspoken Christians show terrible moral decision-making in their own lives. Being able to tell other people the right thing to do doesn't necessarily display a strength of character. Character is shown by our actions. I'm not saying that HR did or didn't do the things he stands accused of doing. I'm just saying that just because someone talks a good Christian game doesn't necessarily mean that the actions are going to match the words.

Wasn't it the christian priests that were molesting all those little boys? I'm not saying that has anything to do with HR, just that being a christian or giving good speeches and sermons doesn't necessarily make you a moral human being.

It was Catholic priests who were molesting children...please don't lump all Christians into the same category as a few Catholic priests who aren't allowed to get married or ever have sex. Catholics are technically considered Christians, but Christians are not necessarily Catholics...if that makes any sense.

But I do agree with the rest of your post...just because HR claims he is a good Christian man doesn't mean he doesn't like the eye candy! ;-)

This has nothing to do with religion, so let's back away from it slowly and get back on topic before someone gets offended. :-°

Watching BBTN on Friday was painful. I want Harold back. Watching Tino and Oral try to look comfortable and speak intelligently about what's going on was ugly. Oral enjoys talking pitching, but can't talk about anything else, and has to be spoon fed questions that he can answer.

I miss Harold and Peter. I hope they get this thing straightened out and behind them.

Oral's eye thing is kinda unnerving, but I always enjoy what he says.

Tino Martinez - decent player, probably a good guy, one of the worst analysts working on TV right now. Never thought I'd say this about anybody, but even Joe Morgan is more interesting to watch than this guy.

It's spelled "Orel," dudes. You must be thinkin' of Oral Roberts, given the tone of the discussion earlier. javascript:emoticon(';-)')
