Hello, Dear Readers ...

So, as Blog Founder, I picked our pseudonyms (names of former ND "stars," in keeping with the blog theme). Sorry 'bout the namesake, Brady (pictured, right):

I'd like to note that when I showed this picture to a female Notre Dame graduate, the actual-not-making-this-up response was "So? That's normal, right? Isn't that just the kind of thing guys do?"

I suppose we've pinpointed the reason for those recruiting problems.

Anyway, it's introduction time, so here are some fun facts about me:

  • I'm a native of southwest Georgia, which explains my dislike of brown people affinity for pecans. Since high school, I have resided in various locales up and down the Mississippi -- sort of like a modern day Huck Finn, but without all the rafting.
  • Only one of the cities I've lived in has been the subject of a major natural disaster.
  • I currently live in Chicago. It is cold. It is windy. Ohio State/Notre Dame/Minnesota fans live here. Counterpoint: hurricanes are rare on Lake Michigan.
  • As of last week, I was under the impression that I was a mere 5'8.75" tall, but a recent doctor's visit has proven my actual height to be 5'9.5." CDC studies show that the average male height is 5'9.2." This makes me .3" huge.
  • Georgia Bulldogs fan. I only woof a) when attending games or b) at sports bars when hammered. I do not own, nor have I ever owned, jorts.
  • I have a fish. His name is Eli.
  • To quote Tom Wolfe, "a liberal is a conservative who has been arrested." My time in jail was difficult, but I took away some valuable life lessons. 1) Snitches is bitches. 2) Forgetting to carry your auto insurance card is not technically a crime, but officers will detain you if you neglect to bring proof of it to the city courthouse within thirty days. It was a very long fifty-three minutes, and I have an enlightened political philosophy to show for it.
  • I like to cook. I fancy myself to be pretty decent at it. Kind of like Rachel Ray, but without all the energy and foul language.
We'll be back on Monday.

This is exactly why the internet should not be free and uncensored.

Sweet. I love that our blog is already attracting obscure legal-literary references. From fascists.

No, I'm not a fascist. I just don't think you two degenerates should be allowed a blog.

Irons said...

Oh, I'm sure they'll take it away soon. Expecting the cease-and-desist letter from Notre Dame any day now.
