Must ..... resist .... the .... obvious .... joke!

(Is it sacrilege to state I'm rooting for the 'Nether region'?)

and to think of the grief I got for referring to Shelly as "Sandy" Duncan...

I don't get it. My wife calls him "Sandy." Did you mean it as an insult to his manhood?

[4] As I recall, yes. It was in the same vein as calling Pavano "Carla." Some took offense at the apparent misogyny.

Ah, well, that's not how Becky means it. For her it's just a case of mistaken identity. Leave that "Chris" Everett stuff to tools like Jim Rome.

[4] Randym77, there was no misogyny, apparent or otherwise. And, I'll add that I took a great deal of offense to the PC police showing up and mislabeling me. Just because someone decides to call you a name online doesn't make it true. It's one of the reasons why I don't post too much at the Banter anymore.
