Things You Don’t Need To Know

AlanaH, my co-habitant in the Kukla Empire of Blogs, has "tagged" me with one of those chicky little deals where you point out five nifty things about yourself no one has EVER known before. To give you an idea, here's how she began her own.
1. I used to live in Georgia and have retained an illogical affection for things like grits and boiled peanuts.
See...I wouldn't admit my redneck roots to anyone, least of all you guys who would pick on me and make me feel sad. Plus, it's always been obvious to us that she had some country in her. So, I've decided to go in a different direction: 5 things I'll never tell you about me.

1.  How I got a tire mark that stretched from my ankles to my shoulders in 2002, in New York City.

2.  How much damage I did to my wife’s car when I backed into a bastard Hummer at the airport two weekends ago.

3.  Just how little time I’ve spent with skates attached to my feet.

4.  Which current St. Louis Blue beat the hell out of my college roommate in a Marquette bar in 1989, and whether the whole thing was my fault or not (hint: during the Summer of Ken, I lobbied big time for his signing).

5.  Why I was forced to drive a Beetle for a year…a new one that screamed “I have to get home in time for Dr. Phil!!”

Great. I feel dirty. I’ll go ahead and spread that shame to the following bloggers:  Herringbone at Death Cab For Woody, to take his mind off the trunkf*^&ing (right back at ya) the Gators hopefully apply to his little buckys tomorrow night.
Cason at Casonblog because he’s still got that Sailor sense of humor. And, we’ll go with Orland Kurtenblog in hopes that their recent return is not short-lived.

About Abel to Yzerman

Welcome to Abel to Yzerman, a Red Wing blog since 1977.  No other site on the internet has better-researched, fact-laden and better prepared discussions than A2Y.  Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation.  There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature.  Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that. Your suggestions and critiques are welcome: wphoulihan@gmail.com
