Wow - that's even funnier than the Top 10 list he made about the dead Brewer teenage prospect!

(That sentence just sounds terrible, don't it - but yeah, if you saw that list, you'd know what I'm talking about).

Sean and Paul, I originally thought of Excellence in Broadcasting when I saw the acronym EIB. But it most likely refers to Joe Sheehans comment about economically illiterate #######. Someone seriously needs to post an FAQ with all the inside jokes here. And Mike Crudale :).

FAQ = Frequently Asked Questions

FAQ is already a plural, just like RBI. The correct usage would be "lists of FAQ", or something similar.
