You know, I get that. It really doesnt matter if Parnell closes the rest of the year. The only thing it will cost us is a .500 record and heck, it might even help us get a better draft pick.

"Mr. Martin Tanner, Baritone, of Dayton, Ohio made his Town Hall debut last night. He came well prepared, but unfortunately his presentation was not up to contemporary professional standards. His voice lacks the range of tonal color necessary to make it consistently interesting. Full time consideration of another endeavor might be in order."
