  2. Ready for another boring comment from a feckless twit?

    By U L E on Nov 18, 2020

  3. I guess these guys had Uns. But I really don’t know why I should care so much about their genitalia. Could it be that I really am gay and have been lying to myself all these years?

    By U L E on Nov 18, 2020

  4. We know it’s Mark signing off as that little perv U L E . The verbiage is unmistakable. Mark always has to make his presence known. A troll trolling otter trolls .Go away Mark

    By U L E on Nov 18, 2020

    By U L E on Nov 18, 2020

  7. With John being the Lilst Un

    By U L E on Nov 18, 2020

  8. Track #401 has to be my favorite on these CDs.

    By HHH on Nov 18, 2020

  9. Hey DD / Anti , triple h , say a prayer for Former LA dodgers manager and hall of famer Tommy Lasorda, who’s in intensive care at a California hospital. Tommy was one motherfuckin colorful manager , Like Earl Weaver without them temper . Lasorda is 93 . We has lost so many hall of famers this year , Al Kaline , Tom Seaver , Lou Brock , Bob Gibson , Whitey Ford and Joe Morgan . Please no more deaths this year . Get well Tommy

    By Derrick on Nov 18, 2020

  10. DD as you know we lost Robbie ( the great Frank Robinson) last year

    By Derrick on Nov 18, 2020

  11. That moron above wasn’t me , for the idiots who can’t tell the difference. The name stealers are trying to get sophisticated by posting an occasional normal comment, meant to throw people off . I’m not really a huge beatles fan .

    By HHH on Nov 19, 2020

  12. Derrick, Lasorda was a great manager with a big personality. Wouldn’t surprise me if this is covid related. No ones saying right now . Think he had heart problems in the past , plus he’s old as dirt . By the way , did you know is deceased son was gay ? Lasorda has always denied it .

    By HHH on Nov 19, 2020

  13. Lasorda was good friends with Frank Sinatra.

    By HHH on Nov 19, 2020

  14. Did someone mention Sinatra ? The big Dic needs to return .

    By D Martin on Nov 19, 2020

  15. Hey triple h, I thought you was the Beatles biggest fan as you was always saying what your favorite track is/was.

    By DD on Nov 19, 2020

  16. swappers, how much sausage are you packing. I like your style

    By Madame Phoot on Nov 19, 2020

  17. Lasorda is an asshole. I met him on a job once. Fucking asshole made us wait for four fucking hours.

    Nobody make me wait that long to eat their ass out! NOBODY!

    I hope he bleeds Dodger blue profusely.

    By DD on Nov 19, 2020

  18. I want YOU to die first HHH. Then Derrick. And soon, very soon.

    By DD on Nov 19, 2020


    By DD on Nov 19, 2020

  20. David , you need to settle down

    By HHH on Nov 19, 2020

  21. Just give a listen to track # 405… THAT’S entertainment!

    By Yummy on Nov 19, 2020

  22. How much more of this Beatles crap is there?

    PS I’m still not dead

    By THE ANTICHRIST on Nov 19, 2020

  23. I’m glad you’re not dead , little guy . Please visit more often and chat sports with us . I know that Derrick misses you as much as I do

    By HHH on Nov 19, 2020

  24. Anti , sure hope you is really still wit us dude . Think you been signing off wit another name , but out of respect I’ll say no more

    By Derrick on Nov 19, 2020

  25. Guess Lasorda could be a asshole sometimes, but still love the dude cause he’s old school baseball. Shit I remember when he was the third base coach in the 60s and early 70s when Walter Alston was the dodgers manager. Remember him ?

    By Derrick on Nov 19, 2020

  26. well what have we here

    By ---turdu--- on Nov 19, 2020

  27. Watched a couple of games from the 65 World Series on you tube , Like Bob Gibson, Sandy Koufax was awesome in the postseason. Beat the twins in game 7 , struck out 10

    By Derrick on Nov 19, 2020

  28. It pisses me off when people compare Clayton Kershaw to Koufax and Gibson , Kershaw chokes in the postseason and has only 25 complete games in his 13 year career. Koufax and Gibson used to have that many complete games in one season

    By Derrick on Nov 19, 2020

  29. Derrick , don’t let stuff like that piss you off . It makes look (even more) like a little bitch . Also , you should stop kissing Anti’s ass . It makes you look (even more) like a needy bitch

    By HHH on Nov 19, 2020

  30. I am a bitch, HHH. A dik sucking needy little bitch pussy boy.
