    Can't watch Mad Men because I will disrespect the show only looking at Hendricks. For such assets she is a very good actress.

    Lots of great recreational ball in Peterborough if you are looking for games. I have been playing in an oldtimers league Sunday mornings for about 20 years. Great bunch of guys. Shoot me a PM if you want to know about the different leagues.

    You say that like your surprised or its a bad thing. We old guys need a place to talk ball too you know.

    Quite frankly and no offence to the young-ins here, but I like chattin' basketball while wearing my Depends and enjoying a nice bowl of prunes. Certainly keep me regular and spry.

    He recently came by while shooting a documentary, and a semi-big deal was made about it, so I don't think he owns property anywhere near-by. They have taken his childhood home and done this with it however: http://www.youngtownmuseum.com/Default.htm
