Here are some summaries of me I've heard in the last year. Seems like a good representation:
He's going to make someone very happy someday.
He's good people.
I haven't laughed that hard around someone in a while.
He's a great conversationalist.
What I’m doing with my life
I think most people would list stuff they do at work. That's not really what I'm doing with my life.
I'm at games
I'm at restaurants
I'm at the lake
I'm with friends
I'm on trips with family
I'm enjoying being an uncle
I'm yelling at my teams on the TV
I'm writing for a blog
I'm teaching at church
I'm trying to excel
That's what I'm doing with my life.
I’m really good at
Cooking, making intelligent commentary during sporting events,
predicting the weather, listening, telling stories, telling jokes,
backrubs, knowing the rules of football and why the flag was
thrown, video games, fixing your computer, Excel, tax accounting,
dancing like the whitest man alive, making people feel special when
they talk, caddying, golfing, writing, making the perfect cup of
coffee, effectively navigating foreign countries, doing math in my
head, knowing whether or not that makes you look fat, picking out
the right investment, picking out the perfect wine for the
occasion, getting all dressed up, making plans, hanging out, and
making flannel pants look sexy.
The first things people usually notice about me
The beard. Then the humor. Then they get lost in my eyes and it's all over.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I read quite a bit, but it varies. Just finished Insomnia by Stephen King.
TV - College sports, the Braves, NFL, Food Network, Travel Channel, Adult Swim, HGTV, Animal Planet (Too Cute), ESPN, Comedy Central, Discovery, and TNT.
Movies - Just saw Jurassic World and SPY, but I tend to like comedies and thrillers. Some favs would be Jaws, Indiana Jones, Bourne series, anything with spies, The Departed, Major League, anything by Mel Brooks, anything with Bill Murray, Father of the Bride, Princess Bride, anything with Harrison Ford, Fight Club, and Star Wars stuff.
Music - All rock before 2000. Some rock after 2000 but not much. I enjoy really good rap/hip-hop, but I hate pop garbage. Country is starting to all blend together. I blame the American Idolization of music for that. Basically, you have to work for it to find stuff that's good now, and that's a shame. Unless you're into Taylor Swift because she's everywhere.
I'm not a picky eater, but I tend to like meat. If you're not into meat? It probably won't work.
The six things I could never do without
Ride or Die Friends
Summer Destination Weekends
Fall Football Saturdays
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Lately, who is left on the Braves lineup that would actually be on another MLB roster if they had a choice? I'm thinking maybe 4 guys. And that's pushing it.
On a typical Friday night I am
Sitting or driving. Which is really just sitting while on the move, but it does mean I'm going out. If it's sitting that probably means I have the DVR on and I'm cruising YouTube for something stupid in the process. Multi-tasking!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I write about sports as a hobby. My job is as a CPA. It's not my only hobby, but if you enjoy talking about it, I can and will blow your mind about some of the things I've learned while writing/following/interacting with people in the games.
You should message me if
Do you like sports? Do you like to volunteer? Will you tell me if these pants make me look fat?
If so, spin the wheel and let's dance!
