I think I'll pass. I learned my lesson when trying to compare/contrast the different fantasy valuations with people. There are far too many zealots when it comes to valuation methods. :b

VORP and I go way back to when you could actually have a frickin conversation in here. That is, having more than 3 quotes. Or, whatever. I guess we're all cutting back. Less pizza, less ice cream, less greenhouse emissions. Unless you drive a Hummer. Then good for you. You've truly compensated for your shortcomings, whether they be physical (penis) ore mental (douchebaggery). I consume less beer... per night. On average. That is I don't drink on Tuesdays and Wednesdays so I can drink more on Fridays. Per capita it's less. I swear. Ask VORP, he knows. Seriously though, I'm not eating less pizza. If anything, i'm eating more. And if it becomes a problem, I'll just start taking Prilosec OTC. Or Advil Cold & Sinus and use it to make meth. Either way.

Is this quantity over quality? really? We can talk about East Coast Bias. Can we just call it ECB from now on? I don't think ECB is taken as a popular acronym yet. I mean, it could be the European Central Bank, or English Cricket Board, but since life outside the US is negligible, I think we can all just settle on ECB as being "East Coast Bias." Tonight I saw an unbelievable display of ECB. The Yankees walked Bonds with bases loaded. Holy crikey. Talk about the world loving New York and hating Bonds. So much so that they'd walk him with the bases loaded. I don't see why we should allow a black man to break a record previously held by a black man. Let's give an Asian a chance. I say no more home run records until Hideki Matsui hits 650 more home runs. Or Dice-K... he only has 749 home runs to go until he catches up with Bonds. In other news, Giambi is going through "butt injection" withdrawal. He is also in need of more steroids. Did I say that out loud?! Sorry, i meant to say "Wheaties" instead of a"steroids." Or HGH, same thing.

If VORP were a verb, I would have VORPed Dan Lambskin's mom two Thursdays ago. She loved it.
