LP Q&A...TP

Do your parents strike you growing up? Yes. My mother was the enforcer much more than my dad. I have two brothers one is 13 months younger than me the other is 5 years younger. I don’t recall my youngest brother ever getting hit, but my other brother and I would get beat pretty regularly. Since we were only 13 months apart we were essentially treated as twins, so if one of us did something wrong we would both get beat. Mom’s favorite tools included: wooden spoon, metal spoon, whiffle ball bat, tennis racket, belt, yard stick, wooden paddle, hands, and extension cord. Some classic beatings that I can remember resulted from the following: climbing/knocking down the Christmas tree, making “soup” in the toilet using almost every ingredient we could reach in the kitchen, beating up some neighborhood kid who was a little “slow”, forgetting my youngest brother at the store (he was 5 at the time and we were 9 & 10…. My mom beat us a little bit, went to the store to get my brother and then came home and beat us some more), teaching my youngest brother to say “fuck”, lighting fireworks in the house (it was a small fountain that fucked up our rug) and throwing snowballs at cars. My mom’s secret weapon was saved for when we misbehaved in public. She would talk pretty softly to lure us in and then would pull our hair and twist. right on the back of the neck…. That shit hurt.

Did they run the AC in the summer? Yes, but only when it was extremely hot.

Did you remember your first kiss? Yes, spin the bottle, summer between 7th and 8th grade.

What was your mother’s best dish? Just about any Italian food. My mom’s best friends growing up were Italian and she learned to cook from them. First car? 1979 Datsun 510.

Best friend? 1. cmtp 2. my brother (the one that I took all the beating with). 3. Several guys from college years. I guess I’m lucky because I have lots of friends that would pass the “drop everything to help bail me out of a jam” test.

How many fights have you gotten into? More than a few. I fought a few times in elementary school, zero in middle school and about 5 times in HS. All HS fights were hockey related. We would fight other teams after the game in the parking lot for some dumb reason. Had a bad stretch of bar fights in my early to mid 20s, but nothing recently, unless you count hitting a homeless guy.

Have you ever committed a crime? Yes. Nothing major things like shoplifting, speeding, driving while drunk (luckily I was never busted for that) and open container.

  What was your first job? Paper route when I was 13, NY Newsday after school. First real paycheck type job was stocking shelves at a supermarket (waldbaum’s… ep might be the only person to know that store) when I was 16.

Favorite sports moment? Got lots of them. I was lucky enough to be at all 3 of UF’s NC wins. First one against FSU was probably the best; Basketball NC in Atlanta was suite too; Tebow’s last home game; Florida/Tenn game in 1995… peyton and vols were up big in the 1st half and then UF had a huge second half and won 62-37; 1st UF game after 9/11. The national anthem was performed by gator marching band, but the crowd was singing so loudly you could not hear the band; TB lighting first playoff win. It was the mid-90s and the lightning were playing in Tropicana field. The game went to OT and TB won (they went on to lose the series), but that OT win was grate*. Huge crowd made it feel like a ncaa football game. Best sports moment watching on tv was’86 mets/sox game 6. When Mookie’s grounder went through Buckner’s legs we immediately went outside and celebrated with other people in the neighborhood. It was the exact opposite of Betran looking at a curve for called strike 3.

Are you afraid of anything? Death and frogs.

Any regrets? Not applying myself in sports more. I really didn’t care about winning/getting better in sports in HS. I played because it was something fun to do and to hang out with my friends. I didn’t listen to coaches. I didn’t practice very hard. I didn’t work out very hard. Looking back I know it was a big mistake. I’m not saying that I would have gone very far in the sporting world, but not trying at all pisses me off. I see the same trait in sotp and it annoys me.

Nice post TP.

But frogs?????

Jugdish said...

Good post!

This cracked me up...” making “soup” in the toilet using almost every ingredient we could reach in the kitchen”

ToddPacker said...

"But frogs?????"

yeah, I don't like frogs, especially small tree frogs. I sometimes have nightmare about frogs.... I call them frogmares

ToddPacker said...

"This cracked me up...” making “soup” in the toilet using almost every ingredient we could reach in the kitchen”

we used the plunger as a mixing spoon

tem said...

Good thing your mom beat you instead of making you eat the toilet soup.

tem said...

I'm a little surprised that so many LOV people got hit a lot when they were young. Kod and I are the only ones not to get beat?

Mize said...

Hell, my friends and I would take whoopings from each others Moms.

Blue said...

i guess brandon roy wasn't really retired, he just hated portland

Blue said...

tem's parents were innovators

tem said...

seems more likely that tem must just have been a mamma's boy.

tem said...

this is a sad day for me.

Blue said...

give me a second, i need to get my story straight my friends are in the bathroom getting higher than the empire state.

my lover she's been waiting for me, just across the bar. My seats been taken by some sunglasses asking about a scar

I know i gave it to you months ago, i know you're trying to forget. But between the drinks and subtle things the holes in my apologies you know i'm trying hard to take it back

So if by the time, the bar closes and you feel like falling down, i'll carry you home

Blue said...

WE ARE YOUNG!!!!!!!!!

Blue said...

tem said...

good thing i don't remember much of anything before i was 25.

Keef said...

Maybe you were just raped by your family

Beth said...

"Kod and I are the only ones not to get beat?"

No beatings here either.

Beth said...

"Maybe you were just raped by your family"

Next go round maybe that should be one of the questions.

tem said...

i don't recall any rapings either

Keef said...

Can't be any worst* than the stupid AC question

Mize said...

MAYBE SOME OF US HAVE BEEN RAPED

Mize said...

I'm really not sure if Kod or Beth may have had something like that happen. Its not really funny.

Keef said...

Amani Toomer thinks Romo is a better QB than Eli

Keef said...

i'm not spending $60 to watch it alone at home.

Mize said...

"big plans?"


Nah. Check craigslist for a ticket tomorrow morning and drinking.

Keef said...

i'm not spending $60 to watch it alone at home.

Mize said...

"i'm not spending $60 to watch it alone at home."


Gotta hook the puter up to the TV.

Keef said...

And the place we're going doesn't have a cover. Which is nice

Keef said...

I gotta make sure my Affliction shirt is clean


SSSSSSSSSSSSS

tem said...

tem said...

"I gotta make sure my Affliction shirt is clean"

i generally wear my underdog t-shirt.

Keef said...

Fuck watching it at home alone. Go to the bar

tem said...

i wll try to find a place with no cover, but i think i'll be stuck paying a $10 cover unless i want to walk 3 miles to another place.

Keef said...

i generally wear my underdog t-shirt.



My go to tee is my Callahan Auto Parts shirt

tem said...

going to the bar alone is not much fun either.

Keef said...

but i think i'll be stuck paying a $10 cover unless i want to walk 3 miles to another place.

Keef said...

fly to AZ. You can go to the bar with us

Keef said...

That 3 miles walk was out of principle

tem said...

hmmm, over $800 to get there.

tem said...

it may have been 3 miles, but it was only a few blocks.

and i would do it again. agreed on the principle part.

Keef said...

You can fly Allegiant Air from Bismarck to the airport right by my house

tem said...

That changes things.

Keef said...

But they only fly here once a week so you wouldn't be able to go back until next Friday

tem said...

Maybe miltem can come visit you.

Keef said...

maybe

tem said...

I'll let her know.

Mize said...

Mize said...

Cantina Bell doesn't look nearly as delicious as Taco Bell.

Mize said...

I think I'm gonna get a Little Caesar's pizza today.

Blue said...

$5 hot n ready

Keef said...

when you said the new Cantina Bowl I assumed it had been around for awhile.

I bet that he loses this fight, retires from UFC. Then Vince McMahon will sign him on with WWE

Keef said...

Softball guy texts me almost every week saying they are short a guy and need a sub. The games are always at 10:00. I tell him every time that 10:00 is too late, but he still asks

Mize said...

HUNGRY

Keef said...

I just pnwed some lady who made a claim on car that her daughter totaled

Keef said...

She said it happened on 7/2. She just so happened to take out a policy with us on 7/2. I did a little research, called the police dept in the city it happened, there was a police report, and the accident happened on 7/1. I called her back and asked her again what day it happened. She said 7/2. I told her I found out from 5-0 that it happened on 7/1. She gave me 10 seconds of ::flank silence::

Mize said...

Man, getting desperate for help reassembling the recoil on sister's auger. I just put out a thirsty message board post.

Mize said...

It would be sure if the asshole old man would lend a hand, since he expects everybody else to help him with or do everything he ever wants to do.

Mize said...

*sure be nice

tem said...

No. /meiz's old man

tem said...

Good work on busting the old ladys's scheme.

Mize said...

Sorry, that was extra bitter. Fucker guilt-tripped me this week for not wanting to go up to the cabin this weekend. Standard practice.

Keef said...

let that shit roll off

Mize said...

He's relentless. It isn't easy.

tem said...

Hard core

Mize said...

I want McDonalds. Don't want to spend money on it though. Chef Boyardee it is.

Multiple reports saying Ray Allen agrees to terms with the Heat.

tem said...

It's true

Mize said...

"In that photo you were tagged in, which bitch was trying to get on that?"


None of them. Those are my friends.

Mize said...

Meant to comment on this earlier from TP's post.

"I’m not saying that I would have gone very far in the sporting world, but not trying at all pisses me off. I see the same trait in sotp and it annoys me."


Nobody likes a tryhard. One of my better friends in HS was a tryhard. Boxing out & rebounding when we'd just have a group shooting around. I made it an extra point to destroy him in games.

Keef said...

I'd probably disagree with that. How else do you get better if everyone goes half assed in practice

tem said...

There are appropriate times in practice to go 100% and not appropriate times. I never went 100% and it is a regret for me.

tem said...

Plus I suspect TP was more talking about games.

tem said...

Check that, I rarely went 100%

Keef said...

Minnesota Vikings star running back Adrian Peterson has been arrested in Houston on a charge of resisting arrest.

Peterson, who is from Palestine, Texas, remains in a Houston jail on a $1,000 bond, according to information on the Houston Police Department website.

tem said...

He must not have resisted hard if they actually arrested him.

Aitch said...

I don't think I've ever seen anyone charged with only resisting arrest. Usually they tack that on to something else.

Mize said...

"I'd probably disagree with that. How else do you get better if everyone goes half assed in practice"


You play pickup games.

Mize said...

I'm about to flat-out drop Tim Lincecum. He fucking BLOWS.

Mize said...

Am I posting tonight or is somebody doing an LP thing?

Mize said...

Are you fuckers alive today?

Keef said...

Spiff is the only one left. He said he'll do it when he gets back

Mize said...

I have a post scheduled. Its unspectacular.
