    doesn’t sound like anyone was inspired to phone a friend and tell them “: Wow, look at this fight , it’s awsome. He’s sticking and moving and he’s gonna work his way to the Unanimous Decision we’ve all been waiting for”

    Considering how much competition they had Saturday, how could this not be good? Do a little bit of research before randomly deciding it’s a bad number.

    It will be considered a win I bet. It was up against the Rays-Sox and at least 1 good College FB Game
