An article by posted on March 12, 2009

As far as I’m concerned there are only three times when it is okay to lie about your age. 1. It’s okay for women to say they are 29 instead of 30, it’s an emotional plateau for them and if it makes them feel good, why not. 2. It’s okay to lie about your age […]

An article by posted on March 12, 2009

Former Mets GM and current ESPN analyst Steve Phillips gave his thoughts on Pedro Martinez last night, and even though there’s no chance the Mets would pursue him, I found what he had to say very interesting.
