Loyalty to any one sports team is pretty hard to justify.

The following twelve photos were taken between late 2001 and early 2003.

So-called “global warming” is just a secret ploy by wacko tree-huggers to make America energy independent, clean our air and water, improve the fuel efficiency of our vehicles, kick-start 21st-century industries, and make our cities safer and more livable. Don’t let them get away with it!
