  1. Way to go Setzy… See if you wait long enough good things happen. You’re very deserving and I’m thrilled for you. Couldn’t have been a better pick!

  2. sportsfreak on

    That is the least they can do after they endorsed him jumping off a high pier trying to fly and
    winding up in the hospital needing surgery. He will stabilize that department. BOL, Craig.

  3. Craig is OK but the quality of the weather forecast from CBS went to the floor after David and Jeff departed.

  4. They probably gave him a 10k bump and called it a day. Cheaper than bringing in someone else. Just sayin’

  5. to mdx

    jeff and dave were good but i am sure craig and his team will manage to provide you with quality info
