PD must not be much of a football fan if he is going to wait for the Yankees to win the World Series. They haven't got the pitching to do the job.

Another re-post of another ancient article. I cannot believe that there were 55 people who pumped this up. I wonder how the poster managed to pump this up all by themself.
