    Nice deal if you’re a Red Sox fan. I’d like an Ortiz photo signed “This is our &*$#)& city!”

    That’s one Red Sox item I’d proudly display.

    He may be the enemy on the field- but terrorists are everyone’s enemy!

    Paul this is just a heads up to you and your readers. If I save one person a headache it’s worth it.

    DO NOT order any appliances or anything else from a company called Appliance Connection in Brooklyn. Their address is 10101 Foster Avenue in Brooklyn.

    They have a list of rules on their site which they don’t even abide by.

    I ordered an item that was supposed to arrive on December 9, 2013. It never came. I emailed them and told them to keep it; yet it arrived on December 18, 2013. It was just left by my door. According to the website, the customer is supposed to sign for the item and inspect it before the driver leaves.

    Then an employee calls me and told me it was late because the delivery truck flipped over. And the dog ate my homework.

    I have copies of my communication with them if anyone is interested. These are nothing but thugs and criminals. They want me to drop the dispute with my credit card in order for them to take it back. HELL NO!

    Just a heads up to you Paul and anyone else shopping for something- DO NOT USE THIS COMPANY!
