Height:  6'1 Weight:  220 lbs. Alumni Status:  BBA 1974
Location:  Los Angeles Favorite Baseball Team:  New York Yankees
Natural Enemies:  Anyone that likes the Red Sox, USC & UofM (either one!)

Athletic Ability: Golf Index 9.1 (was down to a 4.1, but don't play as much anymore);
Used to play basketball, but knees not what they used to be;
Used to run about 20 miles per week, but knees...
Was a lifeguard in HS and during summers while at ND.

Sartorial Style: Casual; I used to work in mid town Manhattan and wear suits every day. Now I'm am my own boss and wear golf shirts with slacks/jeans mostly.

If I could go back in time and find the guy that invented the necktie, I would strangle him with his prototype!

Favorite Beverage and Consumption Freq: Tequila & Vodka. Just quality stuff. Like to try new brands at BevMo - Maybe twice a week.
Red Wine - Cabs & Zins - would drink more often, but they give me headaches - again maybe twice a week
Any good lager (I love Genesse Cream Ale, but it's near impossible to get out hear in LA) - mostly after golf, but usually stock up for ND games.

Political Philosophy: Conservative with Libertarian leanings.
Hate entitlements. Hate growing federal government. Do not like Obama, Reid and Pelosi at all.
Frankly wish we could clean house of almost all existing professional politicians on both sides and start over.
Sincere belief that the USA as we know it will not exist at the end of the 21st century unless the system is totally torn down and rebuilt from the ground up.

Religious Philosophy: Raised Catholic, was altar boy for about 10 years, but don't practice. I loved the Latin Mass, but not so fond of the change to English. I have had on and off conversations with the priest at my local parish about coming back to the fold. Not sure where that will end up.

I believe in God, but I think that human beings have totally fucked up most organized religions.

Antiabortion (although I do think that saving the life of the mother should be an exception) but think the Church's stance on birth control is outdated and just dumb.
I think that Cardinal Mahoney in LA and some other Cardinals and Bishops should be serving jail time along with the pedophile priests that they protected.

Musical Favorites: Led Zep, The Who, Clapton in any band, Jeff Beck, Queen (with Freddie Mercury) AC/DC, Heart, The old Styx with Dennis DeYoung, Blue Oyster Cult, Jefferson Airplane, Hendrix, The Beatles, The Stones, Springsteen.

I love most of the late 60's early 70's stuff. Got to meet Nancy Wilson of Heart on 9/26/14 after show at LA County Fair. Very sweet lady and still looks good.

Oddly, I've developed an affinity with My Chemical Romance. Maybe because the Ways are Jersey boys and I spent a lot of time in New Jersey (although I was born on Staten Island, NY.)

Favorite Quote from an ND Coach: Rockne: "Show me a good and gracious loser and I'll show you a failure"

Miscellaneous Data: I can get my foot in my mouth even without trying.
