Someone actually gave you a gift cheque? Do they dislike you?
Most people do gift cards now, surprised someone went that route. I think it's pretty much like a money order. Give it to your bank and they'll deposit it in your account, but a store has no way to make change on one of those things and they aren't instantly verifiable, so I am sure most everywhere won't accept it.
We need wins, and that's all we need. I don't give a damn about anyone on this roster over wins. I'd trade Ware, Lee and Dez if it meant more wins.
