Height:  5'10 Weight:  155 lbs. Alumni Status:  Class of '76
Location:  Chicago Favorite Baseball Team:  White Sox are family; Cubs are the love interest
Natural Enemies: 

Athletic Ability: Excelled at table hockey, Nerf b-ball in hall olympics. Can hit a golf ball and make it go forward.

Sartorial Style: As dictated by Herr Teufelsdrockh.

Favorite Beverage and Consumption Freq: These days, Two Brothers Ebel's Weiss. At Benny's (of fond memory), Blue Moon; at Ken's on Western, Old Style; at Rocco's, a quart of Miller and a plate of spaghetti.

Political Philosophy: "Nothing's on the square." [Ed Walsh, 19th Ward]

The person who provided that statement was a long-time city and county worker from Chicago, who also said, "Politics is a whore's game at its best." I always like that comment because it could be taken in two ways, both uncomplimentary towards the political profession: at its best, it's a whore's game; or, it's the very best version of the whore's game.

Religious Philosophy: Pascal's wager.

Musical Favorites: Anything with a tune or beat, assuming that it's something I like.

Favorite Quote from an ND Coach: "The only shortcut I ever took in my life was to Notre Dame. How can that have been a mistake? It gave me a chance to walk the path I believe God intended me to take. I know He never once let go of my hand along the way. And one day, He will let me know how our walk went. I can live with that."

Miscellaneous Data: On Photobucket, I'm kabyrnes..."kbyrnes" seems to have a strange fetish.

A member of the final group of seniors in Morrissey to live in the 5th floor tower singles ('75-'76), along with Ajamie, Deeter, Ferry, and Pusateri. A great year!
