8 Unboring Things

I've been tagged by crownring to tell you all 8 unboring things about myself. Yikes! I am so boring.. I'll give it a try..
  1. I met Chicago Bears running back Gale Sayers in 1968 during a lunch break at a greasy spoon in NYC.
  2. I learned to play pool and chess in my preteen years.. I love to play them but get bored after a game or two.. umm.. that was boring.
  3. I love breakfast food.. I like Starbucks Columbia.. biscuits and gravy rules.. and I make a mean Denver omelet.
  4. I have been doing a meal once a week for the last 15 years with my promise keeper buddy Jim.
  5. I could dunk a volleyball when I was a teenager.. not bad for a 5'9" kind of guy.
  6. I learned to tread water in my 50s.
  7. I have had a 50 year love affair with the Statue of Liberty.
  8. I have battled depression.
Okay, I counted a few pretty boring things. How about you? Maybe you can leave a few unboring things about you in a comment.. or, better yet, post about it and let me know if you do.


  1. Hmm, you met Gale Sayers back in '68? I'm not particularly into football, but I've always thought Sayers seemed to be a pretty cool dude.

    I've met a few celebs in my time, Bob, but the one I will always remember fondly is Ernie Harwell, the radio broadcast voice of the Detroit Tigers for decades. Hubby and I met Ernie at a booksigning years ago and had a really nice conversation with him. (He and we were both early that day.) If you've ever met someone that made you feel you were with downhome folks from the very first minute, Bob, that's what it was like talking with Ernie. If Heaven has baseball, I hope I get the chance to sit in the stands and hear Ernie call a game again. :)

  2. It took me a couple of days to do this, but I've finally posted a list of not-too-terribly-boring-I-hope things over at my blog.

    And, BTW, you're not boring at all!
