This is one of the examples where there is not much to say.
But I just have two points to make:
Torey looks like Andy Pettitte. And Robert is better known as Rey Palacios which made me go round a few times before knowing it was the same guy.


  1. "Torey Lovullo" sounds like the name of a TV dance show host from 1982

    1. For me sounds like a police tv show investigator. It seems there is always some police which name sounds like Italian.
