An article by posted on February 11, 2009

Here’s my serious problem with the media. They go to everybody for an opinion about a topic. Why go to David Wright and ask him about the A-Rod and his drug issues? Wright is a member of the New York Mets. It is not his problem. If you cannot get Derek Jeter to talk about […]
