    Mariano Rivera saved a crumbling historic church, and helped a congregation of people. He spent all his own money, quietly. He didn't beg others to help by buying cat calendars or by tweeting and Instagraming for publicity for months and years. By the way, he did it for under a third of what Beth and Howard want us to spend on a shelter for cats.

    I know next to nothing about Rivera or baseball, but I can admire the classy way he did this.

    Great story! I never realized he was such a classy guy, Yankee hater that I am.

    That's how it's done, Howard, you jackass.

    Its obvious the cat shelter project(no matter how noble it is) is to keep beth busy doing publicity and out of the house doing anything. If Howard just paid outright for it, then she'd have nothing to do but move on to yet another project that could cost him millions. At least with this project its been keeping her busy for almost a year. You know he could easily fund the entire thing with half a day salary. But what fun is that for him? I think he likes to see her struggle and fail on her own with certain things he sets up for her

    Mariano is a very good guy. Not fake. Just a great and charitable guy. There's a reason why every stadium/city gave Mariano a farewell ceremony before his last game in their city.

    The difference is Wiggy only cares about 'being seen being charitable'. He doesn't actually care if his NSAL shelter is ever built. In actuality he probably secretly hopes they never reach their target, meaning he can continue the facade of being seen to be caring and charitable going indefinitely.

    This. Beth is vapid and serves no purpose other than being Howard's beard.

    I didn't know that. That's actually really nice. He must be a special guy.

    ¿Did he ever learn Inglés?

    Since we're on the subject of Mo this is touching (his last appearance). I can't imagine Wiggy and his gold digging, camera-whoring bitch with the polluted womb, being as loved and as gracious:

    I think it is more likely that Howard needs a tax writeoff that he can continue to dump into annually.

    is this cat sanctuary going to be called Stern Ranch?
