Jester that seems more like the political forums here. Not much reading on Zen, but a whole lot of attacks on eachother.

After it was over, one coachs told me that those were the two best innings I had ever called!

Yeah, I was thinking along similar lines: your best Zen website is either (a) a blank wall or (b) the infamous MicroSoft Blue Screen of Death.
