...wow. Just...wow. That's a whole lot of old guys and ton of suckage. More that I think about it, the more that I think that Morel might be the way to go. At least in his case he's young...ish. Never thought I'd say that. o_O
Maybe try for Sutton? Chavez?
That is a gross ton of bad.
It breaks your heart. It is designed to break your heart.
