      I third that! Albert Breer is all over it!

    Christopher Hansen at bleacher report is smoking meth if he thinks we’re moving Fluker to guard. I read the article and just about spit my coffee out.

    • tubbs45

      I was thinking more along the lines of crack, but meth might be the right call. Either way the fool is just looking for something to write about. Next article: Clary to backup SS, does it make sense?
