HAHAHA! Due to the enlightening reparte flying about at SportsFilter.com (it's readers/posters are the pulse of American Society apparently) Specter has backed off his statements about TO. I can hear it now... Aide: "Mr. Specter, the guys at SportsFilter.com are killing you. Take back your T.O. statements!" Specter: "No I won't let a bunch of over sported PC yo-yo's tell me what to do." Aide: "But Sir, Wrigley South was leading the charge!" Specter: "Wrigley South? He was in on this? Well there's one SOB you can't mess with. I guess I will recant." Yeah, that was probably how it happened...

And here I am thinking that it was all about me! Nice job Mr. South.

It's like backing out of a fire when your pants are burning, your still to hot to handle. Some people (senators in particular) need to learn when to shut up.

Thank you Mr. Strike, I do like to do my part to change the world when possible. I also plan to raise money to bring back the Galapagos Turtle from extinction and do some mission work to spread baseball to places where it does not yet exist.

The question now is which one of Specter's staffers sat on the corner of his desk and explained patiently and confidentially that he was making a nationwide laughingstock of himself.

I think it went like this: To The Honorable Senator Arlen Specter, Shut the fuck up. Love, The National Football League and the rest of the United States Congress P.S. - How that's single-bullet theory holding up?

I also plan to raise money to bring back the Galapagos Turtle from extinction and do some mission work to spread baseball to places where it does not yet exist. I assume you'll be starting at Wrigley?

Wow Wrigley, first you have forced Spectator to back down, now I hear the Galapagos Turtle is NOT extinct, nice job. If you could only spread baseball to say . . . Detroit's Comerica Park, that would be your most amazing feat!

WFraze, Easy on the Cubbies, there Big Guy. Baseball does exist at Wrigley, it is just that it's like my grandmother. A bit irregular.

Thx Strike, Specter down, Turtles recovered, but alas, I shant try to get baseball at Comerica. That would be difficult. First I will find a cure for world hunger to help me ramp up to the rather GINORMOUS Comerica undertaking.

Wrigley, while you're at at it, could you put in a call to the head dicks down here in Arlington and see if you can convince them to spend some money on pitching for our beloved Rangers? I mean, since you're in a miracle-performing sort of mood?

now lets let wrigley take a break from all these miracles, even God rested on the 7th day, besides, he is going to need all the strength he has to repair the BCS, baseball salary caps, the olsen twins eating problems, and the NFC in general.

He added that he was "not a supporter of Terrell Owens." Here stands your tyical political crap! They all change with the wind of votes. apparently someone thought that if they jumped on the T.O. bandwagon, they would get "the T.O. political contribution! There's only one cause that T.O. will contribute to,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, his own!!!!!!!!

Jenny, The Rangers have pitchers? I thought they were a Hockey team and the Texas Rangers were an Urban Legend.

Thx Steel, The BCS has an extraneous C. We need a playoff system in college football. Baseball Salary Caps won't help me, the Trib wouldn't invest big $ in the Cubs anyway. The keyword (according to the NFL is PARITY) that is why the NFC is such a muck. And I ALWAYS feel guilty about the Olsen Twins. I remember when they were 5 or 6. Now that they are 19 or 20 I feel guilty. Ha hahahaha, the Olsen Twins and eating disorders! I will now walk my perverse self away from that one. Watch out for the girl who plays Hermione on the Harry Potter movies. She is going to be a hottie in about 5 years.

Tazz -- to be fair, that quote is from Specter's original statement from a few days ago.

How can this guy be senator after he killed a hooker in his apartment, and they never should have re-worked his production job on Let It Be.

She wasn't a hooker, she was a dancer. A dancer for money. She'll do what you want her to do. Besides, I heard Greg Maddux was in town that night, and you know he had a hand in that shooting.
