A Super Hodgepodge?

Thanks to Joyce for hosting the Hodgepodge...

1. In the USA this coming Sunday millions will be watching as the Baltimore Ravens take on the San Francisco 49's in the Superbowl. What was the last event you attended that could be described as super?

My class was held on Monday night a Wild Dunes Resort.  Three of the sales team took the students through two case studies of how they choose and evaluate conference business.  It was a super evening indeed.   

2. Share something you're a fan of these days?

I am a fan of sleep.  On a more serious note, with my schedule lately, I am even more of a fan of my wife.  She is getting extra kid duty while I am work these atrocious hours.

3. How do you feel about wings? In case anyone is confused, I'm talking the edible appetizer kind. What's your preferred seasoning on a wing-hot, mild, teryiaki, sweet and sour, other? Do you make your own or is there a favorite place you like to go for wings?

I am a fan of wings though I like dry rubs better.  I don't like getting all saucy and dirty out in public...

4. As long as we're talking sports today...have you followed the Lance Armstrong story? Did you watch his interview with Oprah and if so what was your reaction to his confession and subsequent remarks?

No, no and don't care.  No one died because of his actions.  Some other cheater people made less money than he did cheating.  He is not a nice guy...that is hardly news.  He has not been a nice guy for his entire career if you have even been remotely paying attention.  He, in a lot of ways, is the embodiment of corporate  America.  I guess that is the saddest part of this commentary - that he is not unique but rather one more cog in the machine.

5. What's a question you hate to be asked?

What are you thinking?  If you need to ask, you probably do not want to know.

6. The coaches in this Sunday's big game happen to be real life brothers. Jim Harbaugh coaches the 49er's and his older brother John Harbaugh coaches the Baltimore Ravens. Were you and your sibling(s) competitive? In what way? Are you still? If you're an only child how did you handle competition growing up?

I wish I could be competitive with my sister - it would mean she was alive.  We had five years between us and were totally different personalities.  We were always in different life stages - only starting to share some commonalities when she passed on.  So there was no reason really to be competitive.

7. What's your favorite game involving a ball and when did you last play?

I do like baseball and it was a long time ago when I last played.

8. Insert your own random thought here.

8,703, that random enough?
