That’s from Commentary’s 2010 Christmas card.   It is kind of like my take on the dreaded talking points. Folks just start spewing venom out of their pieholes even though it is dead wrong and completely baseless.  Both sides do it.  I wish folks would just back off and stick to the facts.

H-Town CM James Rodriguez takes his furlough day today.  That’s the way it goes.

Commentary will be heading to The Yard today to take advantage of the discount on team gear – be there!
