    garland here (though i tell people i live in richardson). not a true texan, more of a coonass and a yat. i think paul the administrator and a few other tb'ers are in austin. does that mean tb is also "texan". ;)
     
  12. Embellisher. Vinny& the Jets... that name sounds
    familiar. Do You just play in Dallas?
