Bobby Jenks Can Close Everything But His Mouth

Bobby Jenks warming up in 2009

This site is normally reserved for my experiences observing sporting events. Every now and then something comes along that gets me fired up. The last time this happened was when Brett Favre was texting pictures of his junk to everybody. Now something else has come along that has me a little riled up.
