ENGLISHTOWN, NJ – It’s been almost a year since making this Raceway Park town my permanent temporary residence and I have gained twelve pounds and added to my cholesterol count, as both numbers currently sit at the same 236.

First off… We may send @TheTallMatt back to Rome to pray for Chase Utley. SAN JOSE, CA – The San Jose Sharks versus Pittsburgh Penguins for the Stanley Cup.
