BP Chats

2008-05-30 13:00:00 (link to chat)Shawn Greene is a Jewish dude with a Catholic-sounding name, but I doubt he could get me a severed toe by this afternoon. Luke Scott might pull a gun in a bowling alley. Bob Watson might be the only one around here who cares about the rules.
(I think it's Sobchak from Los Angeles)
We've got these and whole bunch of others. John Kruk, Jeff Kent, and a vote for Nelson Figueroa as Donny. (Marc Normandin)
