Tom Petty

General banter unrelated to baseball boardgames. Resolutely a cordial and convivial board, so talk here about hockey, football, antiques, non-sports boardgames, your vacation, your new housepet, your favorite music or your favorite movie, anything, whatever -- but absolutely, positively, no religion and no politics. Keep it light. Absolutely no arguing or insults.
