PS. I'd just like to say that this week's debate about the Skins has been eye-opening. I know some of you don't want to be bothered with it, but for all of those that have shared their insight and intellect, what an amazing discussion! Where else in the sports blogosphere could so many people share such dialogue? It's been respectful, educational and thought-provoking. We've all learned so much more about each other, and that is priceless. Personally, I have even more respect for all of you than I had before. You all make MHR a remarkable community and I am proud to be a member here.
