    Absolutely not. Gordon Ramsay is bad ass and great entertainment. I just with they didn't censor half the shit he says. Would make for a more entertaining show.

    We seem to have a few common places (at least in Canada) where RR members are residing. Perhaps we should have a get together for a game or two (or possibly a playoff game) to show our camaraderie hahaha... I know my gf hates it when I watch the Raptors because if they're losing I'm in no mood to joke around. Sometimes I take the games a little too hard. Hahaha... I know, I should mellow down.

    My top 5 Raptors moments for sure, but I only heard this on the FAN 590 Radio, also while Chuck Swirsky commentated that dunk like if GOD dropped into our world and did a missionary in the middle of the court with a fully resurrected Marylin Monroe.

    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.
    No no! I love talking with the older guys, especially the ones who bring a lot like yourself, the moderators and so on!

    I just never realized that this forum had a lot of older guys, I was expecting a bit more young-in's in here!

    The more I read what Reuben said actually. It makes him sound like he is part of that group from that south park episode about the confusion between cartmans group and that group of old dudes into young boys.
