    I bet Will G plays with balls frequently. I also would bet 87 could kick a football into the freaking end zone.

  8. Sam says:

    I sure hope that Mark is not talking to me, because if you were you are just pathetic because what can you really do over the computer? Ya, thats what I thought. Even if the Pens dont win they will still be better than you and your precious Steelers. I mean really who loses to some of the teams they lost to? So you can go be all alone, oh wait you will have Will with you wont you? Ya, but I can’t decide if Will paid you to be a jerk or if its just that time of the month for you.

  9. will g says:

    is the 87 you are refering to the same guy that helped a forigen country beat the united states in the olympics?

  10. dangle says:

    Will g get a life. Who cares if sidney won his country the gold in the olympics he has a right to play for his country, Thats what the olypmics are about. You could only wish you were half as talented as he is. Jealous will get you now where so gwt over it.
