    I have a longer song title, which I'm a little surprised you didn't think of: The Siege and Investiture of Baron Von Frankenstein's Castle at Weisseria That's 62 letters plus an apostrophe.  The Beatl more »

    I wish Lester well, I really do.  And I think going to the Cubs was one of the least painful outcomes for the Sox.  I don't think we even play the Cubs in the regular season the next few years.
