Family and friends — and whiskey — keep me well stocked with great stories.

My Disney Poop Story

There are certain moments that seem to define your life. My trip to the bathroom at Disney about 10 years ago was one of those moments. This story is long, but the payoff is worth it. Don't be discouraged just because it's called a "poop story." It was a hot and humid day at the Magic Kingdom. I had just polished off a bread bowl full of clam chowder and the family decided to hit Splash Mountain.

Bo-tterfly Effect: The Impact of Bo Jackson

Every now and then, I’ll come across a sports story that I assume everyone around me is familiar with. Then I realize, I’m an old bastard, and the guys around me are mostly in their 20s. So then I have storytime. It’s like when your grandpa tells you about the Heidi Game. I also figured most of my readers might not know these stories either, so here you go. This is the story of how certain decisions could have changed the course of several teams in several sports because of the impact of Bo Jackson and his presence or absence.

Saturday Morning Cartoons

I'm 40 years old, which means that my formative years (from 6-15 years old) were in the perfect Saturday Morning Cartoons time period of 1977-86. Five years earlier (1971) and there would have been way fewer cartoons available to watch on Saturday (there wasn't even any electric back then!) And five later (1991), after the cable boom, and the Looney Tunes were already starting to be phased out by politically correct censors.

Best Candy Bars Ever Mock Draft

A good piece of chocolate can make your day better. Diabetes, obesity, bad skin, spoiled dinners and chocolate smears on your face aside, the best candy bars ever make life awesome! My friends at FifthPeriodLunch.com posted a blog listing the top five candy bars ever. Check it out when you get a chance, and without spoiling anything, I’ll just let you know that I nearly choked on the nine candy bars I was eating at the time, when I saw Mr. Goodbar listed in the top three.
