Bill Raftery is the Ballz


I am sitting (Thursday, Febuary 21st @ 7:55pm) in Newark airport waiting for my flight back to the Cuse when Bill Raftery walks in……..This is what entails

Raftery to Jakes coffeehouse clerk- “Can I get a coffee, or are you closed?”

Jakes coffeehouse clerk-“We are closed, but I will give you a cup of coffee!”

Raftery to Jakes coffeehouse clerk-“Super young lady, you are simply suuuuuuuuuuper!”

(I did not make this up, I was 2 feet from the entire exchange!)
