TSS U, I received this email from publicist Mario Serrano. He believes Robert "The Ghost" Guerrero is somewhat underrated, and deserves more consideration when we keyboard tappers make our pound-for-pound lists. Serrano makes some good points... and I will finish with this. The guy earns his keep, he went above and beyond lobbying for his guy.
