they weren't questions. they were direct statements that i can't repeat right now, and so, what's amazing to me is the perception that he, you know, he ignored me. worst thing that could have happened was for him to reply based on what i told him. >> yeah. bottom line is, if character has any weight, in the heisman voting, that guy will not win a second heisman. baseball the a's have won seven eight to pull within the rangers in the west. one of the reasons for the hot stretch, brandon moss who belt four home runs with 11 runs batted in. u.s. open, plenty of time to celebrate her birthday tonight. top seeded serena williams not messing around. how is this for present. the serve goes long and hits her. that was the only thing that didn't go serena's way because she didn't drop a single game in her straight set win that lasted 52 minutes. it took our crew longer to get through the bay bridge than it
