Cars that shouldn’t be allowed in the speed lane:

* CNN should be fined by the FTC every time they run a banner saying Breaking News on the missing plane and there is no new news
* WWF stock price would go through the roof if Vince McMahon took out life insurance policies on his employees

About Michael

Lifelong Boston resident who finds equal enjoyment in celebrating the local team's success as I do complaining about their failures. I have been writing the Top Ten for the last decade as well as five sports books: 26 Miles to Boston, Rebound, The President's Team, The Great Book of Boston Sports Lists and NBA List Jam.
