bananaEvery year I look back on my life and pull out little nuggets that I’ve learned to share with the world. Some of these are mine, some our others but all are awesome. Your regularly scheduled sports column returns in two days..

  • I spent a year learning four million dollars isn’t really all that much money.
  • After a master’s degree and a decade of study,  learning everything I could about body language, I feel this is the single most important subject when it comes to social relations.
  • There are idiot Raider fans in all corners of the world and they are all haters.
  • coloradoThe highest quality women in the world live in Colorado, Munchen Germany, just north of Seattle and parts of America’s south, with the hottest physically most attractive living in Germany.

  • After you meet and have sex with your ultimate fantasy girl, it leaves a little hole in your soul.

  • When you realize that you have become the man you dreamed of being; when you were a child and finally realized that you’re a better man than your father could ever hope of being; there really is no place you cannot go in the world. There is nothing you cannot achieve in life and there is no woman unattainable.
  • Motivation is a powerful thing and it doesn’t necessarily have to be positive. Although I am positive 90% of the time, I wouldn’t be where I’m at socially or career wise if I didn’t still want revenge on another human. The best revenge is living well.
