  1. This man once took aim at an engineering degree, but ultimately fell short due to various reasons.
  2. Awwwww, hun. You need cuddles? Titos and white grapefruit
  3. I’m cool if it’s cold and lightly snowing. Major snow accumulations are obviously not ideal. Also high winds are also not good for us.
  4. Nope, not an accident at all. In fact his death was quite purposeful. Necessary you might say. Not as a profession, but he wrote a journal and a few letters that gained wide notoriety at the time.
  5. Same here. NCAA basketball is probably second to the NFL in my sports world.
  6. Not as a profession. He was, however, heavily involved in the Boy Scouts. Was an Eagle Scout at a young age, and was a troop leader as an adult.
  7. Born and raised in Florida. Lived in a couple other states before he passed though.
  8. He was an interesting man. Genius level intelligence also. Nope. Never active duty. Was deployed once to Cuba during his 5 year enlistment. The rest of the time he was here in the US.
  9. 😂 Can you imagine kids today watching NBA basketball from the 80’s? Good defense, mid-range jumpers, and sweet baby hook shots and layups?
  10. No, he wasn’t an actor either. His fame was earned largely through some of the skills he learned in life and during his military career.
  11. Kinda like what Jordan did for the NBA. I watched with my dad during the Isaiah Thomas, Bird, Magic years, but never really enjoyed NBA basketball until Jordan. Edit: I find the NBA to be unwatchable now.
  12. I honestly think it’s the players. Specifically guys like Lebron, Steph Curry, and Kevin Durant. Also the way it’s marketed. I feel like the kids like to wear their sneakers and their clothing.
  13. Nope. This guy had multiple jobs in different fields, was in the military, and was also a university student.
  14. Oh, I don’t know....round about 54 years and 3 months ago 😊
  15. I was thinking maybe Dick Fosbury because he revolutionized the way the high jump was done 🤷🏾‍♂️ I’m thinking of a person... White male, American, dead...
  16. I have 2 guesses, but I’m going to go against my gut and guess long jumper, Bob Beamon.
  17. Interesting. As my job entails being able to quickly build rapport with students who I am evaluating, I have found to 70-80% of the time sports are my “inroad” with male students. I guess less so with female students. I have found that kids today seem to be HUGE into NBA basketball which I’m not really a fan of, so I have to study up from time to time.
  18. I think you bent the rules regarding communicating with your 18 year old self, but I’ll allow it because it’s a clever idea 😉
  19. Ooooh, good one ☝️ Edit: But when would you “plant” it and where?
  20. ....proceeds to watch 18 year old self dive in front of a speeding dump truck.
  21. I’m not too afraid of their running game, but they have a lot of weapons in the passing game. I’d expect a lot of 2 deep safeties vs Herbert and his bad haircut. Blitz occasionally to keep him off rhythm. Double Keenan Allen.
