    Sorry Blake , IMHO the fact that you would even consider asking is indicative of the problems we have in this country.

    so a crack whore is walking past a blind beggar or her way to turn a trick and takes a dollar out of his cup.
    then an alterboy walks past on his way to clean bedpans at the old folks home and also takes a dollar out of his cup.
    the blind beggar can tell them apart how?????
    he can't, they are both the same in his eyes

    My advice? Get a life, get a real job and get a hobby you can afford!

And because they cant buy dog food on their EBT CARD they feed the dog the steak. That's what's wrong with this country!

    But someone who has worked there whole life and payed there taxes what's the big deal. This I will guarantee he has probably payed more taxes in his short life time than he will ever get back on entry fees. So I don't look at it as him spending my tax dollar he is spending his. I would rather pay him to run a trial than the other. Like a bonus for working hard and paying taxes not sitting on your butt and having baby's.
    Do I detect a slight man crush going on here?

    Ken I would say not at all the same thing because that would imply theft. I wouldn't in any way think you to be a blind beggar and in no way is he stealing from anybody. It would be no different than a billboard or commercial for the city.

    Glen on the note of another stupid a$$ comment no one will have to worry about my opinion any longer. And trust me I don't post much and I will not be missed and like wise I will not miss this site so long.

    No but I am tired of rude people. And yes I am in a bad mood! Everyone wants to talk about we need new blood we need this but the first chance people get they want to bash the hell out of people on here. When half wouldn't say this crap to someone's face. The man asked a question yes is it a good idea probably not. Could somebody say that with out being an ass yes but I guess its true what you have in your heart is what comes out of your mouth!

    This is just my opinion, but I travel a lot for slowpitch softball tournaments i know its not exactly the same thing but we ask local businesses for sponsorships. We have never asked a city but you could try local shops and stuff that would be interested in sponsoring you and your dog. What we do for everyone that donates money is put their name or logo on our jerseys for the year and if we win money at the tourneys we refund them. Just my .02

    It is said that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.

    I get it. Even though you are an attorney, your rhetorical jousting skills are weak. I guess I don't really blame you for copying someone else.
