Heat's Riley smart to leave door open (with poll); plus latest on Dez's mom, how optimistic are Dolfans? (with poll), FedEx drops OB & more

1aateacher Today/Tuesday is National Teacher Day. Appreciate and thank a teacher today!

 

RILEY OPENS DOOR TO COACHING HEAT AGAIN: Finally, some big news involving a local team executive not having to do with asking if a player's mom was a prostitute! Heat president Pat Riley said today he'll do whatever it takes to make Miami a champion again -- and did not rule out the possibility that could mean him coaching again. Doesn't mean it's likely. But the possibility is out there now. Here is my column on this, online now and shipping to Tuesday's paper. Meantime take a dip in our poll and tell Riley what you think. And tell us why.

DOLPHINS POLL. BECAUSE SPARANO SAYS THE SEASON HAS STARTED: I know it's only May, and barely that. But Dolphins coach Tony Sparano said that to him the weekend rookie camp just ended is the official start of preparation for the 2010 season. So there you have it. Time for an early gauge of what Dolfans are thinking about the coming season. I look at seemingly soft schedule and can easily envision 10 wins. Others are not so optimistic. For example, ESPN's updated, post-draft Power Rankings have Miami slotted an uninspiring 22nd, well back of both the Jets (8th) and Patriots (9th). Where do your expectations fall and why? Remember, it's not what you are hoping for, but what you realistically envision.

DEZ BRYANT'S MOM CONTINUES TO EMBARRASS HERSELF: Angela Bryant is demanding an apology now from Dolphins GM Jeff Ireland over his "was your mom a prostitute" question -- as if his earlier public apology  was not all-encompassing enough for her. Well it now is revealed Angela's druggy past was not so much in the past after all. She was arrested in April 2009 for selling crack cocaine to undercover informants and found guilty in August and sentenced to 10 years' probabation. She's lucky she isn't back in prison. Two thoughts here. One, Ireland and the Dolphins have apologized enough. Period. Two, Dez should pay his mother to shut the [bleep] up and not be seen in public. She is an embarrassment. The "was your mom a prostitute" question should be more insulting to prostitutes than to her.

1aafloyd MOMENTUM FOR MAYWEATHER-PACQUIAO: Am told Floyd Mayweather Jr. (pictured) dominated Shane Mosley Saturday night (I missed it; was at a wedding). Now the ultimate bout -- Mayweather vs. Manny Pacquia -- is gaining momentum and should happen. I'm always waiting for the return of the heavyweight division to rescue boxing, but who needs it? I think Mayweather-Pacquiao will set PPV records and remind everyone that the Sweet Science still is embedded in our national psyche in a way that mixed martial arts isn't, and won't be.

ON ARIZONA IMMIGRATION LAW: I'm conservative on illegal immigration. Think it's a big problem and a drain on America's economy. Think we should protect our borders. But even from that vantage, I think Arizona's controversial new anti-immigration law is shockingly over-the-top and must be rescinded. It is racial profiling at its worst. I'm glad to see some of the Diamondbacks' six Latino players speaking out. I think sports can wield some leverage here in helping to nudge Arizona forward into the 21st Century.

1aafedex IT'S NOW THE EX-FED EX ORANGE BOWL: SportsBusiness Journal reporting today (click here) that FedEx is ending its 21-year run as title sponsor of Miami's Orange Bowl Classic, the longest such partnership of any BCS bowl game. The good news? It's now the splendidly unadorned Orange Bowl Classic, at least temporarily. The bad news? Naming rights are for sale and some new corporate sponsor will jump in soon.

OH, CANADA? NO, CANADA!: Click here for the bizarre tale of Canadian youth-hockey coaches who thought it was roaring funny to give beer to 9- and 10-year-old players after a game. I think this is an outrage. What a waste of perfectly good beer.

1aafeagles FAREWELL, JEFF FEAGLES: Venerable ex-Miami Hurricane finally retires after 22 NFL years. Nobody punted more times (1,713) for more yards. He leaves third in all-time in games played (352). Only George Blanda and kickers Morten Andersen and Gary Anderson played more seasons. Hall of Fame? Doubt it very much. Only two Pro Bowls for Feagles (pitcured). Plus he's a punter! But what a remarkable career. His rookie season was 1988. Recent Dolphins' top draftee Jared Odrick was then not yet 1 and literally learning to crawl.

1aamenutitanic DEAR GREG...: Your blog's OK but would be better if occasionally you would reprint the ill-fated last menu from the Titanic on the day it sank. Thank you.

Where's Pink Floyd on that list???

The Arizona law isn't as facist as liberals like Cote would have you believe, it's not like citizens are going to have to carry around their birth certificates at all times and if they're caught without their "papers" they'll be sent to the gulag.

Police can only ask people for proof of citizenship if A. they're involved in a traffic stop, or B. they're involved in an ongoing police investigation (i.e. someone called 911 or the officer saw a crime being committed).

And the proof of citizenship they need to have? A drivers license. Because you can't get a drivers license in Arizona without first showing proof of citizenship.

And if you're driving without a license or committing a crime, I don't really feel sorry for any additional inconveniences that are imparted on you.

I look forward to the La Bamba Check Cashing Orange Bowl in 2011.

"Days of the Future Passed" Moody Blues

"Crimes of Passion" Pat Benatar ..actually, I have a hard time deciding from her first 4 which is the best. Blondie also had numerous albums with all great stuff. And then there is "Boston" by Boston.


Shadow, I haven't watch much of a full soccer game but that game on ESPN2 yesterday between Real Madrid and Osasuna was incredible; instant action and spectacular goals.

espn hates the dolphins

Anyone seen any tape on Grice-Mullen? It seems kind of redundant to keep two Davone Besses on the team but if some is good, maybe more is better.

voted very optimistic. how many so-called "experts" forecasted the Saints as Super Bowl Champs?

Immigration issue. I haven't read the law so I can't comment. If you come here illegally, your a criminal by breaking the law. Something - the right thing - needs to be done though.

Greg, you got what on your iPod? I have lost quite a bit of respect for you. If you listened to what is on my iPod, your head would split.

over 1/3 of the State's and Federal Jails & Prisons population are illegal immigrants. almost 1/3 of all welfare recipients are illegal immigrants. States bordering Mexico are in danger of going bankrupt and illegal immigration is a leading factor.

Funny how hard it is to get a work visa to do business in Mexico. Even funnier on how they treat people illegally immigrating from Central America across Mexico's southern border (ain't pretty).

There wouldn't be any political baiting by the left on this would there?? These protests are turning violent but it poo-poo'd by the left sided media. When the media reports any violence by these protestors it is quickly dismissed as justifiable.

Isn't SB in J-E-T-S you know the rest stadium this year? That would be a nice place for Miami to start collecting the first of its four consecutive Vince Lombardi's

Jimbo why do Mexicans & Illegal Aliens like Cunty hate Americans so much?

Yet the guy loves the J-E-T-S FAGS FAGS FAGS. Go figure.

Cunty Hates the good OL USA, I wonder what county I mean country Cunty's from?? Or what Planet??

Raoul, If you owned a I-Pod what music would we hear from it??

I believe the super bowl is in cowboy stadium
where it would be poetic justice if Bill could take the trophy and say I may not be worth a bleep but I will take this trophy in the stadium I helped build. Then I woke up.

Anti-Christ, Maybe alittle oh I don't know Jimi Hendrix perhaps... Probably every live and studio version of Red House he ever did for starters. Brady Bunch Live at Hollywood Bowl a must. Maybe alittle sequin Elvis just prior to his final performance of straining too hard at the throne. Peanut butter and banana sandwiches with heaping helpings of opiates tends to be quite binding I imagine...

John I could live with Fins getting 1st of their four consecutive Lombardi's at Jerry "Cheesey" Smile Jones House.

I'M WITH JIMBO. THE FREAKIN' ENEMY IS AT THE GATE. TIME TO SEND B-52's TO NUKE ALL OF MEXICO, CENTRAL AMERICA AND BRAZIL WHERE THEY'RE MAKING HITLER CLONES AS WE SPEAK! ENOUGH OF THIS PUSSY FOOTIN' AROUND. TIME TO HIT 'EM THE A**, HIT 'EM WHERE IT HURTS, MAKE 'EM SCREAM!!!!

duke, lol, Wouldn't peanut butter and banana sandwhichs (bet he used Wonder Bread) make passing a deuce kinda difficult? Sitten, grunten, hummen, hopen you ain't shooten outta hemi could drive someone a cardiac.

A.J. Edds (4th round) may be have been one hell of a pick. Check out this link:

Greg, new poll.

ask your bloggers what they got on their iPods

Dangermouse.

Anything.

Go Heat....personally if Wade wants to leave, I think we can still make something good happen...I HOPE HE STAYS!!!

Dolphins have me pumped up for next year!

Cote is conservative bwwwwaaaahhahahahaha...i realized why you said that with the rest of your blogpost. The Arizona law specifically prohibits racial profiling or any kind of profiling...It IS WRITTEN IN THE LAW. You are such an Obamabot. I don't think it is cool that Ozzie won't go to Arizona for Allstar game...that is lame. But hey to each his own...go for it...do what you think is right. Cote is all Liberal....don't believe him!

PLSSSSS for the love of God don't talk about your beliefs or political ideology on this blog. i couldn't care less what you think about any issue of any consequence. i just read this for entertainment. when i want political commentary i go to other sources, not a sports writer

men,

pat riley again?! must mean that he will be acquiring a top grade talent for companionship to dwyane wade, because his history shows that he prefers coaching a team with KAJ/ewing/mourning/shaq-type centers for his "fist" play- you know the one where his squad rins 20 seconds off the clock bewfore throwing it into the post in desparation because he can't draw up an offense that scores to save himself. i saw a stat that said that in 1990 the avg NBA team scored 100 points a game, and that after riley and the knicks went to his style, and many followed suit, the league avged. only 90 a game in 2000. dropping 10% of the scoring has not made for "eye candy" for the NBA; the playoff games where layups are capital offenses are absurdly low scoring. mugging guys who are open to the basket ought to be made flagrant fouls level two.

OC, Yessongs is one of my all-time favorite DVDs. Siberian Khatru, Close to the Edge, Perpetual Change. They sounded awesome live. Love Iron Man but Warpigs with Ozzy even more. If you want life sucked out of you listen to Hand of Doom from "Paranoid" while even mildly depressed. Good tune nonetheless...

OC No Zep eh.

Duke,

I have playlists for every major group: Zep, Floyd, Jimi, etc.

If I loaded everything into it, I'm sure it would tip the scales at over 20,000 songs. The stuff I posted above is just some of the stuff I actually bought through itunes.

OC Dolphin,

"down by the river"- great song from the second solo album by neil young; let's include "cinnamon girl", "everybody knows this is nowhere", and "round and round" from the same LP. the deceased buddt miles also did a great version of "down by the river".

shadow,

Those you list above are easy inclusions. OC's favorite Neil song right now is Old Laughing Lady. The version he recorded for the Prairie Wind album, as it appears below:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zch70LwmSpg&feature=related

I would probably kill if I could ever play my acoustic guitar like that.

Shadow - Riley isn't coming back unless a "top grade talent" demands it, that should go without saying but apparently Riley wanted to get the Heat into the news somehow during the playoffs.

And if you think that the NBA is suffering from too much defense you either don't watch the NBA or you're out of your goddamn mind!

Put me down for possible wild card ...The dolphins are very young and have improved their speed specially on defense but they need time to develop..... A lot of nay sayer's on this and other blogs about the Tuna & Ireland but I think they have done a great job

Here is my simple solution about the illegal immigrants, give them all work permits for five years ( so they can pay taxes, this will help the economy by not being a burden to all of us ) but with the condition they must stay out of trouble..if they do, they can start the process of becoming residents and citizens if they so desired.

as for the artist list, agree with the Beatles as numero uno , greatest band of all time, but a list that excludes the following is no list.

Pink Floyd
The Stones
Jimi Hendrix

Hey greg, can I order Norwegian Anchovies from that Titanic menu???? yummy...

Public service announcement..you guys should get some Ray Charles, BB king and John lee Hooker into your i pods ...you won't be sorry.

BEES,

our long time disagreement over the NBA is still in force; chick hearn, who knew a little about basketball, suggested a long time ago that raising the basket wasn't gonna do much, but that widening the court as the bodies of the players got huge would open the game up, and i believe that chickie baby was correct. the enormous bodies of the players choke the lanes and make scoring difficult; the NHL is okay but many prefer the game with the wider rink used in europe. i feel the same way abour the 50 X 94 foot court; expand it to 55 X 100 and watch the game open up drastically.

I STILL SAY NUKE 'EM BEFORE THERE ARE TOO MANY OF 'EM INSIDE THE PERIMETER SON! MEXICO, CENTRAL AMERICA, BRAZIL HOME OF DR. MENGELE'S HITLER CLONES. THIS IS NO TIME TO BE WORRYING ABOUT THE COST IN TERMS OF LIVES, FINANCIAL RESOURCES OR LOSS OF DEMOCRATIC VOTES FROM BUSSED IN AND PRESSURED ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS!!!!!!!!

Will any of you guy's be checking out Roger waters tour this year where he does "The Wall" ??????not Pink Flotd but it's as close as we'er gonna get......

Typical Liberal...I am conservative on this issue but I have to take the liberal side and the law must go. You are a clown Cote.

We need to do something about illegal immigration but not this. What Cote? Amnesty?

There is no profiling so read the law. In fact, it is illegal to do that. For the most part, Arizona had to make a law saying they would enforce FEDERAL LAW because the feds wont.

For those latinos speaking up against the law...just shut up. Obama tells us to shut up so how do you like it? Baseball players? Play baseball or join a league in Puerto Rico, Japan, or Mexico if you are unhappy here.

Cote...There is a problem with illegal immigration but you don't like this law? You libs have no clue or ever offer any real solutions. Your idea of fixing a problem is by ignoring or giving in to it...Or throw money at it but Obama is currently attempting to print more money since we are out.

Lamont great commercial my man. No lets score some ripple & hoes and give your old man a heart attack by telling him he has to move to a homeless shelter.

Anti-Christ I think I'd rather see Gilmore live than Waters.

Apologies in advance: ACHTUNG LATINO (or any other "you just don't look like me" group)...

Arizona has to wake up and smell the "cafe con leche"

My iPod serves the purpose of entertaining me at the gym or running a trail.. therefore, everything is fast, loud. Mostly..

Red Hot Chille Peppers
Metallica
ACDC
Zep
Deep Purple
Lenny Kravitz
Cramps
Iggy Pop
Ramones
Linkin Park
Bad Company
Ted Nugent
Smashing Pumpkins

although I love most Rolling Stones, Bowie, ELO, S R Vaugh, Hendrix and a lot of the old Mo Town stuff, I keep on my library of Lime Wire.

Metallica "S&M" is the perfect music to lift to. So is Nugents "Stranglehold"

Bad Companies "Burning Sky" is great to run to. So is Deep Purples "Hush"....

Whatever you do, never let Black Eyed represent you in court. The guy does not know how to read or interpret the law. I particularly love "you can't get a driver's license without your proof of citizenship" Good stuff there.


Anyways, regardless of your position on immigration I just want to point out that Cote is 100% wrong on the economic value of these illegals...which is why big business and Wall Street are both pro-illegal immigration.

Companies like Monsanto Archer Midland Daniels, Tyson, Smithfield, etc. regularly advertise in Mexican newspapers saying if you can make it across we have a $11-$15 hour a job waiting for you.

Why do they do this?

1) The U.S. economy needs to add 500,000 unskilled laborers a year. Current immigration policies allow only 5,000
2) The working conditions these companies offer are so disgusting and dangerous only an indentured servant (i.e. illegal immigrant with no rights) would do it.

Jimbo,

"hush" by deep purple is one of the songs that made AM radio listenable in 1968; especially love the intro with the howling wolf. their follow-up, a rocking version of neil diamond's "kentucky woman" was also white-hot. hush was written by joe (games people play) south, writer of many tunes that stand the test of time.

Stav - I'm a biologist, not a lawyer, and I'm just citing an interpretation of the bill that I read in the New York Times, feel free to point out anything specific I'm wrong about.

I do know, because I can read their website, that national policy at the DMV is that you must have either your social security number or your green card, I-551 stamp, Immigration Judge's Order, I-797 asylum form, or I-797 refugee form to get a license.

Obviously it's relatively easy to get around that, I went through four fake IDs before I was 21, but at least the laws are in place to prevent illegals from getting drivers licenses.

One thing I do agree with you about is that the US economy relies on immigrants to fill unskilled labor jobs, but I disagree with the solution. We have plenty of Americans here that aren't working because they feel entitled to a white collar job because of their education - that's the real problem. We don't need 500,000 immigrants to come in and fill these jobs, we need to take the 9.7% of Americans, those 29 MILLION people, and put their asses to work.

OC, is your acoustic a Martin? And if I may be so intrusive what did you pay? The're like the Stratovarius of guitars. I'm amazed at the prices these fine instruments fetch. My Custom Shop '65 Strat doesn't come close in terms of cost unless the Martin is broken.

"they're" f***!

Anti-Christ can you imagine how much blow Roger Waters could jam up that honker of his? Remember the mountain on Scarface's desk? Gone in one snort...

@ Black Eyed Esteglacias Sisters

"Police can only ask people for proof of citizenship if A. they're involved in a traffic stop, or B. they're involved in an ongoing police investigation (i.e. someone called 911 or the officer saw a crime being committed). "

you forgot C: or if you look latino enough to fit the profile of an illegal immigrant.

Yes OC, Mr. Eads looks like a fine linebacker especially for pass happy conference. Of course they always tend to show best footage but still he looks like a very smart pick. Plus nice Gimmie Shelter theme song to go with him. I'm just worried about his seeming lack of off the field issues and character flaws.

duke,

It's a little D1 Martin. Nice crisp, clear sound. If I remember correctly, it was like $650 + shipping, through Ebay.

Here's one that is currently on the market:

http://cgi.ebay.com/2009-Martin-D1-Acoustic-Guitar-and-Hard-Case-Used-1-2hr-/130388334796?cmd=ViewItem&pt=Guitar&hash=item1e5bc018cc

icantbelieveit,

No, that's my point - the new law absolutely does not allow police to stop people just because they look illegal. They can only ask about your citizenship status if they pull you over, see you committing a crime, or are called to investigate a crime.

Black Eyed, I agree with you, but your third graf is the rub....we know that all those requirements are easily overcome, so the DL is no proof of citizenship.

On those jobs, 50 years ago being a meat packer was a great, great blue collar job (They even named football teams for it). But since then it has been ground up into a horrible, exceptionally dangerous job, mainly to keep prices super low for huge volume buyers like McD's at first and now WalMart, etc.

And they want to buy at dirt cheap prices because I like to get my food super cheap too. And so these producers have to mass produce the food as cheaply as possible using (or abusing) the cheapest labor they can find....illegals. They cannot find American citizens who will put up with the job conditions they are offering. Not because people are lazy, but because the job sucks beyond your imagination (although you can see the secret camera videos on You Tube or "Food, Inc.").

We're going to pay the price somehow...either with "illegals" or higher grocery prices. If the disaster in the Gulf is a bad as it looks and shrimp/seafood prices skyrocket for years, it may actually be the beginning of the end to the era of both cheap food and the need for illegals.

what about the tens of millions on the welfare rolls? can't the able body people find this as a start? a generation ago, these "unskilled" jobs used to be considered "opportunity" to get your foot in the door. i don't mind helping the helpless but tiring of helping the clueless.

Stav - it's true enough that it will be easy for some people to get fake drivers licenses, but I would rather some people slip through than for everyone to have to carry around their birth certificates or some other form of special identification - that's a little too facist for me.

I'm not sure I agree with your assessment on work conditions, the fact that you threw out McDonalds and WalMart as your examples of dangerous jobs smacks of a bit of anti-corporation paranoia. For starters almost everything that's made for WalMart comes from China, so unless you're talking about them making 80 year old greeters stand on their feet for 6 hours a day, I'm not sure where the danger is for their American workers!

And my god, if you think that conditions today are worse than in the glory days of American industrialism, you're happily mistaken. If you've never read Upton Sinclair's "The Jungle", it's a good read and sounds like it would be right up your alley if you like food processing horror stories.

I maintain that the problem isn't the work conditions themselves but the entitled attitude of the typical American with a high school diploma. I worked in a strawberry field from 6 AM to 5 PM for three summers when I was a kid, alongside migrant workers and other kids from my neighborhood - it was hot, hard work for little money, but there wasn't a person in that field who wasn't happy to be there.

BEES* (the biologist),

how many ADPs are produced by the krebs cycle? (gimme 19th grade biology for $20, art

Zzzzzzzzz!

This organism acts as a decomposer by absorbing nutrients from dead organic matter.

- What is a scum sucking Consuelo?

Ooh, sorry Art. The correct answer is - What is a Saprobe.

Duke, I too would love to see Gilmoure but he doesnt seem to come to the USA for unknown reasons,Saw Waters a couple years ago in West Palm beach and it was excellent, 1st concert I went to since "The Who" strooled down to miami in "88"

One molecule of glucose will give you 6 NADHs, 2 FADH2, and 2 ATPs per turn of the Krebs cycle.

The last year of my PhD I should be in 22nd grade biology - my plan is to stay in school as long as possible so I can avoid getting a job and working in a slave driving meat processing plant or in the extensive McNugget mines of central America.

Zzzzzzzzzzzzzz!

cuntsuelo 180168

Midget Mexican prostitute. Named so due to the inherent proximity of their naughty bits to the ground.

Jon: 'Hey check out that extremely short latina'
Jim: 'Yo guy, that cuntsuelo is just a common street walker...'

BEES*,

it was a typo and should have read "10th grade biology"; somewhere i had the number 38 locked in, and i googled to find that is the number of ATPs produced per cycle for aerobic respiration-did i read correctly? biology was great in the 10th grade- i did my term assignment on "blood-clotting" and had my rather jewish nose in "scientific american" and, horror of horrors for a high schooler, "science magazine'- geez, was that technical. got a great grade and know my thrombin from my thromboplastin, which is why the guy who posts as C---Y C------------O doesn't die when he gets a simple cut or slashes his wrists when mark sanchez throws interceptions.

back to the NBA, BEES*; how about chick hearn's idea of widening/lengthening the court? as stated, sounds good to me. what is a scientist's view of the late "chickie baby"'s proposal?

BEES*,

i loathe the concept of "walmart" from both the angles of putting smaller fish out of business and as you mentioned, everything there made in china. my wife loves shopping there, but i would rater spend a penny or two more and purchase from a small retailer or buy something made in the good old USA, items becoming more difficult to find with the passage of time.

Cote, I have to give you credit for posting the picture of the "teacher" at the top of the blog. My only complaint is that it's not a bigger foto.

They should play basketball in Walmart parking lots with no protection on concrete floors. You know "Old School" gents.

shadow - verdad, 2 from the Krebs cycle, 36 from the electron transport chain. I think if we all just knew a little more about the difference between thrombin and thromboplastin the world would be a better place.

I'm not a fan of WalMart myself, but I do like the ultra American symbol of overconsumption that it has come to represent. I for one, have a 52 oz. Slurpee mug that I refill at the 7-eleven. Never in my life could I finish 52 oz. of Slurpee, but it costs less than the little blue cup to refill, and I'll be goddamned if I'm not going to get as much Slurpee as I possibly can for $1.06.

USA! USA! USA!

And I think I like the idea of the expanded court. One of the NBA's biggest problems is that it is dominated by one-on-one matchups instead of ball movement. This leads to tons of whistles for the superstars as well as a lack of defensive play because it's pointless.

I've always liked how spread out college ball is, I can't imagine what that game would look like if the players were halfway decent.

One "problem" I would foresee is that NBA teams would have to rely on their benches more, where right now the team with the 3-4 best players will win most games, a larger court would put greater importance in players 5-12

BEES*,

nothing un-american about going for the 52 oz. slurpee!!! and i am with you on USA!USA!USA! we live in the greatest nation on the planet and thankfully not in some of the places to which national geographic sends the camera crew for pictures of those who have to walk miles to fill their water jugs in order to survive.

Love those secretary shots Woodcock. Think she's wearing any panties under there? I bet she just has her ben wah balls click clacking away between those sexy crossed legs.

Damn duke,
You were on a roll last night, possibly a Kaiser roll... Pu-dum-pum!
Seriously though, the last time I heard that Black Sabbath song I was so blasted out of my gourd, I think I woke up under a bush somewhere near Collins Avenue, and it was like 10:30 the following morning. No wait, I think I crashed my car, THEN passed out somewhere, hell, I don't remember.

Damn that looks like my third grade teacher Ms Gignac. Seriously. Gawd I loved that woman. Unfortunately, Ms Gignac has to be at least 75 years old now. But in her day, oh babeeeeeeeeeee.

Teacher in above pic:"Mr. Duke you will join me afterschool in detention, sign this waiver and proceed to sex me up until I can't even remember my husbands name. Are we clear!"
r. duke: "As clear as an unmuddied lake. As clear as an azure sky of deepest summer. You can rely on me Mrs."

BEES*
