    A team plays in NY, then plays in CA, or visa versa, or such.

    Anyone keep statistics on how changing time zones impacts a team's record?

    It was also known he had lost suits for discrimination, failing to pay contractors, and fraud. It was also known he had bankrupted most of his businesses. Seems GOP didn't care.
