  • What to do if your spouse leaves! 6/17/10

    Posted by Bear

    A Texas man was dumped by his fiancé. So he sold everything, bought a Lamborghini Gallardo and set out to drive across America.

    It took months to sell all of his possessions. He used most of life savings as a deposit on a $180,000 Lamborghini Gallardo. (The car does zero to 60 in just 4 seconds and tops out at 195 mph.)

    Then, he started driving.

    For more than a year he wandered from place to place, living in motels and making new friends. He crossed the country three times. He visited ghost towns and big cities. He retraced childhood trips.

    As soon as he'd settle down, he'd get the itch to move, so he'd pack up and drive somewhere else.

    During his journey, he racked up 53 speeding tickets.

    By the end of his trip, he had put 91,807 miles on the car.

    After all that time on the road, the engine broke down and killed the car. It's worth less than he owes on it, and the bank won't give him another loan.

    For now, he's setting up a shop in Dallas and plans to build custom motorcycles. He also plans to repair or replace the Gallardo's engine when he can afford it. Right now, it sits in his shop.

    He's also met a new girl, but he's taking things one step at a time.

    I am truly honored to have the opportunity to fly with the U.S. Marines Sunday in their rocket assisted C-130 "Fat Albert" Sunday at the Milwaukee Air Show. This will be the ride of a lifetime!!! This big plane is flown like a fighter and during it's routine Sunday I will be subject to many high G turns and high speed, low level passes along Milwuakee's Lakefront for the airshow.

    God Bless our Troops from all branches of the military!

  • Another Favre Rumor! 6/7/10

    Posted by Bear

    For all the momentum of speculation pointing in one direction, at least someone believes Brett Favre is now capable of true retirement. [Favre's] longtime pal, Vikings kicker Ryan Longwell, would not be surprised if the future hall of fame quarterback does not return to the Vikings. "I think it's 50-50 either way," said Longwell, who is a golf buddy of Favre's and was a teammate with the Green Bay Packers. "He played so well (last season), and I think there's a desire that this team has a chance to go a long way. That would be the reason to come back. But at the same time, he was so at peace with how he played last year -- late in the season -- and that would be the reason not to come back."

  • Was He Out? 6/3/10

    Armando Galarraga came within one out of a perfect game Wednesday night, deprived of the milestone on a call the first base umpire says he got wrong.

    The 28-year-old right-hander from Venezuela, making his third start of the season, beat the Cleveland Indians 3-0 and lost the bid when umpire Jim Joyce ruled Jason Donald safe on an infield hit. Galarraga received a throw from first baseman Miguel Cabrera, who had fielded Donald's grounder between first and second base.

    Tigers players and manager Jim Leyland angrily berated Joyce after Trevor Crowe made the final out, claiming replays showed Donald did not beat the throw.

    Minutes after the game, however, Leyland and Galarraga both said they believed no one felt worse about the controversial call than Joyce.

    Galarraga said Joyce apologized to him for getting it wrong.

    "I just cost the kid a perfect game," said Joyce , who became a full-time umpire in 1989. "I thought he beat the throw. I was convinced he beat the throw until I was the replay. It was the biggest call of my career."

    Galarraga, who received a celebratory beer shower from teammates after the game, said he was impressed that Joyce approached him after the game.
