This is my first time at this....Go easy on me.  Undecided

You guys were supposed to go easy on a newb.  You were supposed to suggest PSU would knock down the last shot.  What happened?  Just like at the race track...I got to tear up my ticket....and walk away wondering who broke my horses ankles.

Wink

Ok...were do I go for the next beatdown?
