    - Rex Ryan holding the Lombardi trophy come Feb., 2011

    - Greece (and the world) recovering so as to have people be able to enjoy the fruits of their labors...for their children...and their children's children...

    - Bon Jovi announcing their retirement from *music* courtesy of permanent hearing loss....

    - Bon Jovi announcing their retirement from "music" courtesy of his "posseur" act deemed "too Guido" by "responsible $uits" ...

    - Jon Bon GUIDO announcing his retirement from the 'pop' (vs. the rock) world by dint of (per the above) him being deemed "too Guido" ..... "too much a posseur?" ..... too much: Jon Bon phuckin' GUIDO?? :neutral:

    Yes, I'm phuckin' obnoxious, but Jon Bon GUIDO???!!!!lll;;;yeah,, tell me aboubt it!;;;;;;;;

    - Billy Joel vowing never to write a song to include a 'lyrical-pause' in the form of "whoa!...whoa!...whoa!...whoa!"....

    I would like to get bumped up to NTRP 1.5 before I die.

    It doesn't look possible but one can always dream.

    Whatever you do, don't move to California or some hotbed like that. I've known solid 1.0's from the East who got pummelled in 0.5 tournies in Cal.
