    First of a few watchlists for Burkhead. Hopefully he gets to take some hardware home after the season.

    Rex is a Stud.....nuff said.
    God grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked anyway,
    the good fortune to run into the ones I do…
    and the eyesight to tell the difference.
