    Other than family and wine? What else is there?
    I am passionate about college basketball – to get a bit more detailed – March Madness when my teams are thriving, namely the UConn Husky men and women. 2004 – first time in college basketball history that both the men and women won it all in March Madness. Doesn’t get any better than that!

    I liked the randomness of this show, anything was possible.

    QOTD – OK, you took the easy ones (Family & Wine!). Other than that I’m not sure I have a passion, the study of History comes close, or good Sci-Fi & fantasy, maybe the odd Strategy game on the PC.

    Wings. I’m a wing eating connoisseur. A local (VA) wannabe Irish pub makes the best I’ve had so far.

    I watched a bunch of old episodes on the plane last week when I went on vacation, so I’m catching up now.

    Raspberry pop tarts are nasty, I don’t know how they went so wrong with that flavor.

    Dont you dare put Hogan and Flair in the same sentence! I have always hated Hogan with a passion. I just find the character to be over the top phony, and his set of moves was boring at best. It was obviously a great PR move my McMahon to make him a “USA” character in the 80s with all that Regan crap goign on, but no way could he match up to Rowdy Roddy Piper (best character in pro wrestling history), Flair, Macho Man, Million Dollar Man, Ultimate Warrior ( God watching his INSANE promos are classic ), Psycho Sid, etc. God I couldnt stand him…… end rant. QOTD: Jazz. There is nothing like comming home from a stressful day and putting on some John Coltrane. The man was a genius. Period. Also people like Miles Davis, Ornette Coleman, Pat Methany, Mahavishnu Orchestra, etc. Just brilliant people who are on another level. God to be inside their brain for one day…….
