I'm in Scottsdale at a dental thing. Just left Morton's and sitting out on the patio is a small group that includes Chuck. I resisted the urge to yell "HEY CHUCK WHATS THE DEAL MAN?!?!" Or something to that effect. I didn't want to be that guy. But now... I wish I would have. No matter what his reaction it would have been a better story than "hey, this one time I walked by Charles Barkley outside of Mortons in Scottsdale."

Oh well.

I hammered and I'm going in the hot tub.

LOL, I forgot I made this post.

Hey, if you guys insist...

So I'm trying to get to Solon from the west side. I hop on 77N and then merge onto 480E. Well, the left lane from 77N merges with the right lane from 480E. It's not one of those where the two lanes end up side by side. So I'm in the left hand lane on 77 about to merge and traffic is light.

Well, right then this mouth breather who's in the center lane on 480E decides to get in my lane. Now, he's only about a half a car length ahead of so's I have to jump on my brakes. Not really hard, but enough for it to be aggravating, you know? I don't even beep or nothing because who really gives a shit, right? Well, for some reason, this guy takes offense at my not taking offense, or something. I'm not sure what he's mad about, truth be told. Only thing I can figure is that he thinks that I'M the one changing lanes. Dumbass, I wasn't even changing lanes. He's the one who's changing lanes.

Well, now he's good and pissed about something or other so he's weaving back and forth in front of me while flicking me off and shaking his fist at me. I'm crappin' you negative, the dude actually shook his fist. He gets to the right and slows down so he can give me the old stink eye while I'm going past, which he does. In spades. If looks could kill boy howdy!

It was one of those times I wanted to follow him so's I could draw him a picture and show him the error of his ways. I'll bet that guy STILL thinks I'm the one who fucked up, even though it was clearly him.

Some people. Amiright, fellas?

I saw Junkyard Dog once, in the Rochester Airport, I was like 13, he was on a pay phone, wearing his THUMP tights.

I ran into Ellis Burks while we were checking into the same hotel in Scottsdale a few years ago. He was down there to watch the Indians AFL guys. We had a nice conversation about Wes Hodges and CC Sabathia's new contract. Seemed like a good egg.

I was helping out room service at a luxury hotel I worked at and served pancakes to the lead singer of the Darkness. His outfit that morning was not that far off from what he has on in the video. Needless to say, I didn't wait around for a gratuity.

I saw Tony Dungy at the PIA 3 weeks ago. I thanked him for writing his men's daily motivation book like Chris Farley's SNL talk show skit meeting a Ben Stiller screen test.

I got you all beat. Bernie's rookie year he was playing in a golf invitational at the country club where I worked. I gave him a ride in a golf cart from the 18th green, to his car to grab his clothes, then all the way to the door of the men's locker room. He gave me $5 for my troubles. Was probably his first step towards losing millions.

I agree, yours in the best besides mine.

2. Driving rookie Bernie Kosar around in a golf cart when you are actually a kid.

First, thanks for actually reading that. It wasn't really designed for someone to get past the first sentence or two.

I'd say the most likely candidates are Busey or former patient

I used to fly out of Hopkins every week. Sometimes Pittsburgh or Akron but normally I went to Hopkins because I was on the highest level Continental status and could get into first class every other time.

Could not take my eyes off the woman across from me. Dressed down, wearing jeans, not even trying to stand out, and just so fucking hot I kept peeking over. We get off the plane and David Segui is waiting for her. Could have been a high priced hooker for all I know.

Another unknown brush with Celeb at Hopkins was Scott Hamilton was in line in front of me at the newsstand. Except, I had no idea, it was just some slight balding guy purchasing gum and being friendly as hell to everyone. After he walked off the girl said, "did you know who that was", I said "nope", she said Scott Hamilton. Gymnast!!! I said confidently smiling and pointing like Shooter McGavin. No, silly, ice skating. I shake my head thinking fuck that's right.... What a meat-head. My goodness, he was such a little guy, but so freaking nice to everyone. Later I found out thanks to all the ads he was coming to town quite often for cancer treatment.

Oh speaking of gymnasts at DFW when I worked from that airport, little Kerry Strug and posse went sprinting by me to catch a plane. She didn't even have a limp.

I drank a beer with Scott Ian of Anthrax at Zanzibar's in Waikiki. I was hanging with a buddy, and Ian saw me look at him and gave me the man "nod." I took that as an invitation to come over and talk for a minute.

He was with a couple of buddies, but he was totally cool, very regular dude. We left his table after a few minutes before it became an awkward Chris Farley interviewing Paul McCartney moment.
Coming from a Wolverine, we're the football equivalent of a formerly abused wife of a meth addict who just remarried the safe nice guy. We're just glad we have someone who's aware that it's a rivalry and that tackling on defense is integral. Baby steps.
