Crow's past discussion was fun, wild and lively. There is a whole lot to read. Crow basically was trying to encourage others to look beyond just the Blues regarding CBG. As you know, I am all about the Blues. At first I thought he was talking about me. LOL He later clearified his statement. These discussions get a little out of hand some times. Just the way we like it. LOL Enjoy.
