But Duke, your attention is needed elsewhere:

Why have you changed your handle from Timmy P to Timothy P?
Are you seeking a wider, more mature audience? Perhaps more respect from your peers?
Will this mark a change in your irreverent commentaries? The famous non-sequiturs? Is this the start of a new, somber Timmy? A glimpse into the future content of your posts?
Should we mourn TIMMY?
Or celebrate TIMOTHY?
Do you know the name 'Timmy' turns up zero MLB players in a Bbref data base search? Whereas the more austere moniker, 'Timothy', turns up 228 MLB players on the same old search.
Can it be true, that in the 125+ years of professional baseball, not a single player has ever been known by a name as silly as Timmy. Not a single juvenile, foolhardy, dimwitted - TIMMY. Strange?
Have you read the NY Times article where Tim McCarver put his cigar out on Joe Buck's neck after Buck jokingly called him Timmy on air during the Fox game of the week. Bad Stuff.
Good luck Timothy on this endeavor. May your new name add prestige to your drivel.

What are you talking about, plenty of Polish people in America, there's a lot. Regular American just means average cool guy from America, which I am. Nothing wrong being a regular American Twisto, and as long as you don't wear Soviet underwear I'd let you in the club.

That's why I'm such a big fan of Paully Konerko.

Wonder if the Japanese threw grenades good? I bet the Japanese slap hit the grenades with a bat and were half way back to the foxhole before the grenade was barely gone, really out of the box quick! That would make sense.

He was from Rhinelander Wisconsin and he knew how to speak a little German. After the Germans were driven out of France and the Americans were there, he would go in to a bar or cafe and yell something really loud in German. The Frenchies would retreat and he would end up with the best table in the house!
