To do what?

16. Boston Red Sox or New York Yankees?

Yes. I'm really bad at it. In fact, the only reason I went last time I did was to woo Carol. (And it worked.)

Not a lot. I'll eat it. My wife LOVES it.

Yes, and I'm glad I had a seat belt on. My friend Lynn was driving in New Paltz on Route 32, heading south, and I'm in the passenger seat, when this car, which had been waiting for several seconds, sudddenly makes a left turn right into us. Lynn had a neck brace for six weeks. I was OK.

Don't think so, but let me think on that.

Given my lack of understanding of quite a bit of rap, though I loved the really early stuff, I guess classic rock, though certain songs can become so overplayed as to really irritate me.

Hmmm. I think this is a question more suited to Tom the Dog.
