Outside of my dual role as commentator/agitator depending on ones views about a particular subject on ATS.
I often spend a couple of hours every day beating the neighborhood kids at basketball, they all refrence me as " hey old man" or " grandpa" along
with other names like steve nash and crusty old hooper.
I believe it is out of jealousy, since they are 15 to 19 ish, some older some younger, and I win basically every time, even if it is me and 3 12 year
old girls vs 4 17 year old highschool basketball players.
Some even swear I used to play college or professionally, though this is not true, I just enjoy playing, so have become pretty good over the years.
I am pretty good with my hands, and can fix just about anything the needs fixing. Cars, eletrical, computers, plumbing, home repairs...
I read a lot, all the time, mostly though, I enjoy the scifi type books, or hystorical accounts.
I have read litterally almost every star wars book, save about 15 I believe it was last time I counted, all the halo series, except the last book of
the forerunner trilogy by greg bear.
I truly love to watch comedies, like the chapelle show, and tosh, and love anime, specifically naruto, as my son Maximus is a dead ringer for the guy,
it cracks me up to see the comparisons my family draws when we watch it.
I also enjoy bleach and inuyasha, but hardly ever missqua teen or squidbillies.
I also enjoy just about any roller coaster, or thrill ride, but really enjoy driving sports cars, I honestly cried, and a part of me died inside when
I had to sell my 89 irocZ camaro, it had a 305 chevy, with an edelbrock intake and a holley carb, with flowmaster exhaust and headers, a 350 turbo
tranny, and the original billet aluminum 5 star camaro wheels.
Just an amazingly beautiful and powerful beast of enjoyment all around.
Other than that, I would say I am the average American, that works and sits around watching the tube or serfing the net, while pigging out on pizza
roles and drinking pepsi by the 1 liter.
Ah pepsi, the sweet nectar of the gods themselves, whatgood graces and utter love was expressed by the wisest and smartest of the gods when they
bestowed that invention on so lowly and undeserving a race as ours, we are all laid low and unworthy of such a mighty and truly amazing gift.
Pepsi....just makes me want one thinking the name.
Oh and bacon, I loves me some bacon, oh yes my precious, we loveses our baconses, yes we does precious.
