    Goon came out months ago and this guy is just now doing a review?

    Is he reviewing Youngblood next week?

      I bet he reviews ‘Sudden Death’ next.

        You think he’s done a review on ‘Mighty Ducks’ or ‘SlapShot’ yet?

        You know if Paul Newman was still allive, I got to wonder if he ever regrets any of the movies he’s done. For the good stuff he did, I wonder what he thought of the hockey movie he was in.

    Gronkowski’s lack of commitment and disdain for wearing clothes was the best thing to ever happen to the New York Giants.

    Roenick, like all Patriots fans, just can’t resist a tight end.

      He’s not going to try to turn him into a wide receiver is he?

        Wel Played, Gubnah!

        Eh, it’s the only joke in my wheelhouse…

        The Pats need more Woodhead. At least he doesn’t drop balls.
