Is it wrong that I have a grudging admiration for that clearly duplicitous criminal?

I thought it was a nice touch that he claimed not to know either where his mega-yacht was located or what his net worth is.

I don't know- a Russian buying an American hockey team is just such a Cold War thing.

For those that watched 60 Minutes, I wonder what was in that hookah that all those hot models were smoking when they went to the nightclub. And irunfromclones, I'm not sure what you mean, but the Nets are a basketball team.

Uh, Shotput, though the Nets may not be a hockey team, I'm sure many would argue that they are not a basketball team either/lol.
