    question - are the diamonds in Elvis' medallion real?

    • Maggie says:

      According to a one-liner in the Notes column in the Philadelphia Daily News, yes, the diamonds are real. Pat paid for the medallion.

  2. Don says:

    Elvis or Burrell for the best "dog" in the clubhouse??
    Also,..anytime Longoria "needs" a day off I'll live with Aybar..my man!

  3. Kicker says:

    If the rays ever want consistent attendance they need a stadium in Tampa. Makes perfect sense really. I'd buy season tix if it was in tampa. But not in st.pete. I can't drive 20+ miles 15 times a month.
