“I said basically ‘protect yourself’. He didn’t really have much of a choice.” Emery told Frank Seravalli, a writer for the Philadelphia Daily News who also gave Emery a third star of the game. And THAT was Barnaby’s biggest problem. Got it.

Your three stars of the game, ladies and gentlemen.

Then again, let’s consider the source. Barnaby has had run-ins with the law, including arrests for domestic violence (sound familiar?) and DWI, and has been ordered to attend anger management.
