Can I take these for my answers?

1.) I was thinking Eddie Taylor.

2.) Digging up old dead people for the next election. (Chicago is known for voters who have been dead for years, but vote for decades afterwards.)

I stand corrected, Taylor did play there, you're 100% correct. Make that a tie with 5 players.

We understand Alfie, we've been dealing with the Duck's ego for forever now:p.

Hi-jacking THIS, thread, will result in serious legal action..And, a quick trip to the "rust belt" for Vince and 'Big Nose' Tony, which will result in sipping your 'Jameson' through a straw, for a few months !..:eek: Plus, almost certain disqualification from the contest..:focus

Ok. It was SuperDuck of course, and they were in the coat room. Thirteen guys all ganged up on one poor mark and I was slinging the red card. Guys just kept coming up with their hand across their chest. I said WTF? Is it Independence Day. Is somebody singing The National Anthem? Everybody was with it and wanted 'IN'. We started to whack up the $80 but instead I saw a dealer and spent in all on some good old china white. Freddy and Artie were leery of using my old worn out works so we dumped all the bags of dope on some aluminum foil and we just all just chased the dragon with some straws from McDonalds and then nodded off like a mullafkr listening to Credence Clearwater Revival.

I would like to enter, so just to throw another name out there, I'll go with Handsome Danny Jones, who like to play the ponies like a lot of the old school players. I know he played Artie in Bensinger's.

No probbie, I'll call you Tue.
Petie, Just so you are aware, there are some pretty good prices on lesson's, from the premier player's (in Chicago)...Ghroasty has priced his lessons at only $3.50 per hr..(2 hr. minimum, of course) :D.. As far as I know, Artie is still firm at $30,000..:eek:

Myself, I would try for Chris Gentile...He maybe a little [sic] higher ...But, ya gets what ya pays for..:p NK NK JK :p....:focus:
