Football I generally fall asleep. (wrveres)

I have a bit of trouble making it through a whole football game too. For this last season some guy posted on The Pirate Bay complete condensed NFL games (if interested search for something like: NFL_W02_CG or just "NFL condensed"). He can shrink a whole game down to less than an hour i.e. just play after play with no gaps in between. Great for e.g. evaluating a defensive player for your pool etc. ;-D

Non-baseball related question for you North Americans.

I got invited to be a groomsman at my former co-worker's wedding. I'm not really close to the guy, but I felt bad about saying no and told him I would do it. This weekend, we went out for suit fitting and I fully expected him to cover the cost for the rental. He didn't. I have never been to a wedding in Canada, so I started asking around and I have been told that the groom would usually take care of the groomsmen rentals. Is that usually the case?

I'm gonna be spending close to $500 bucks for this guy's wedding, between the rental, wedding present and driving two hours each way for the wedding. If the guy was my bff, I wouldn't be this cheap. :-B

Cheap Bastard! :-D

I totally paid for the rentals at my wedding, and every wedding I've been in the groom picked up the tab. You have a cheapskate for a friend.

I'll be happy to entertain any trades *after* the draft, when people aren't worth money any more.

If you're interested in Verlander sans the $38 price tag, we'll see.
