  1. Castillo with a leg ailment?

    Oh my God, wasn’t everyone saying that he was Completely Back, just because he showed up after a whole winter of rest looking ambulatory?

    You’re blowing my mind here, Del.

    I thought that the magic Suspension of Disbelief of the fanbase had magically healed him forever!

  2. I am beginning to believe that Omar and Manuel are Sith master and apprentice.

    They “will” the players to play regardless of their wellbeing. :-0
