I am in Vegas as we speak, and I just put $100 on the Jets picking Kyle Hamilton at 4.

Hang out for a bit, I will be there a week from Wednesday with my son Shane. You haven't seen him since he was 11, time for us to hang out again.

That speech you gave him after his little game when he went 2 for 3 was legendary. Terrible advice, you told him to dictate where he batted in the lineup and other horrible ideas. It was a legendary speech though lol.

He's actually a pretty good magician.  Took the wife and kids to see him a few years ago and got to meet him after the show.  Hopefully he teaches JD how to pull a rabbit out of a hat at #4 before next Thursday night!
