I am a little bit Salty.

    So the Red Sox are once again off to a great start. They have a pompous asshole as a manager, who people say is a great baseball mind. Well I have not seen it thus far. He left Bard in just a little too long the other night, last night he leaves Franklin …

NewEra needs a NewRivalry

This is quite the rivalry Alec. By the way I really loved the Mel Gibson impression you left on your daughters voice mail. Seriously I think NewEra needs to rethink this rivalry thing.

Joshua Patrick Beckett – “The Prick”

The Prick By: PTL Let me start off by letting you know it would be hard to find a bigger fan of Joshua Patrick Beckett than myself, to the point where I have wondered if asking my girlfriend to toss in a dip and wear like fifteen Phiten necklaces would be out of line. It …
