  8. Yet everyone dumps on Tim Tebow? Be afraid America, be very afraid.

     
  9. okay just remembered there used to be an outfielder for the cubs name of Moises Alou played left field and he was the guy that bartmen (the fan) who caught the ball in the left field foul area that alou tried to catch. anyway a reporter asked alou about his not wearing batting gloves when he was at bat and what he did to protect his hands and alou told the reporter that since he was little he had been peeing on his hands and that had made his hands tough. okay now in the regular world alou working at a fast food or any restaurant making sandwiches and knowing that the man regularly peed on his hands do you order food from him?
