I think its totally fair to be pissed if you're covering for someone who is too injured to work but not too injured to fly for a full work day.
He was nice enough to mention that he would forward all of his support emails to me by 8:30 a.m. Pacific time, so I have that going for me.

Syb, that was Taylor Twellman doing the screaming, not Stu Holden. I much prefer Holden over Twellman as a commentator because Stu doesn't need to scream or get worked up to make his point.

U.S. has dominated the game but can't generate too much danger. Paul A is best on the field. Not excited when Weston goes out on a stretcher.

Don't worry. There's probably a 1 percent chance he'll sign a long-term deal with the Indians, especially if Trout is getting paid $35M+ a year.

Didn't know that bit about Gold Star, but I know Skyline was started by a Greek family. The flavors in Skyline are similar to the meat sauce in moussaka, which is a traditional Greek casserole with potatoes or eggplant.
