Marty "is 6-foot-2 and has a torso shaped like an upside-down coat hanger."

 

Fatso.  :giggle:

Your unconditional rejection of violence makes you smugly think of yourselves as noble, as enlightened, but in reality it is nothing less than abject moral capitulation to evil. Unconditional rejection of self-defense, because you think its a supposed surrender to violence, leaves you no resort but begging for mercy or offering appeasement.

Answer - Because he's not a robot with large puffy pads that instinctively falls to his knees like a hooker at the Bunny Ranch in NV everytime someone winds up to shoot.

I wonder if my daughter will pin the pic on the back of her door.  ARod is long gone.  Big time Rush was ousted by One Dimension.  She spent her own cold hard cash down in Princeton on an Einstein poster so I'm not thinking he's going anywhere anytime soon. 

 

Can a happy picture of Marty replace Moose in her heart?  I'll follow up.

Was the extra comment necessary? But yes, it was a great read. I loved the part about Eddie Shore putting a rope around the goalie's neck in practice so they couldn't drop to the ice, lol.

Do you or a family member work for the NYT?  You always seem to defend them.

 

Not everyone likes that paper or their take on the news.  Just like not everyone likes Fox News, WSJ or NY Post for their take of the news.

You do know he plays for the Av's now, right?

edit - I see what you mean now after re-reading, he was with the Ducks then...

No and no. I didn't want to get into a thing about it here, thus why I didn't say anything beyond my questioning of the necessity of his comment. I thought the comment was unnecessary and a bit antagonistic, but it wasn't a big deal, which is why I only asked why he made the comment.
