    You need to go to one of those zen meditation schools and practice the word ummmmmmmmmmm for a few years. It helps to lbock the 90's completely out. Let me know if your interested because I can hook you up with the munk I used. I would go back and block out the playoff losses in the 70's to but they won't allow me back. It seems it took me to long to block out the 90's and they ended up losing money on my tuition.:redface:
