And there you have it folks!  The “unregistered commenters’ ” crowd…. they strike again!

I sense they somehow feel themselves reinvented via the internet as “Zorro”..... although sadly enough… they’ve not been cognizant enough to…. (I’ll be nice) UNDERSTAND Zorro’s premise.

Baseball and all sports are ridiculous distractions. Why waste time and energy talking about them. Plus, these people are over paid, and I wish we would focus on hard news.

I realize that most Americans love their sports. I guess I have no choice but to accept the fact that it is almost impossible to avoid this junk.

I just heard the first 6 minutes or so of your new poscast. I shall not listen to it again. This is the same kind of crap I can hear on CNN, I don’t need to waste my time listening to it at my computer. You should be ashamed of yourselves.
