Commentary:

I’ve always been a fan of the PIL and a big fan and supporter of all youth sports. I enjoyed playing and watching my sons play. Today I watch my grandchildren play — all 13 of them.

I’m the owner of Oregon City Sporting Goods and my favorite form of competition today is playing cribbage.
