Profile for MANORCAL Click here to make or adjust profile

Height:  6'3 Weight:  too much lbs. Alumni Status:  orig. '08, but taking some time off
Location:  Favorite Baseball Team:  Tie: L.A. Dodgers and Angels
Natural Enemies:  Barry Bonds, that kid who does the Numa Numa dance

Athletic Ability: Very little, though I tried hard in high school. Think of that wiener kid from from the movie "Sandlot", and you'll have a pretty good representation of me.

Sartorial Style: casual, though I'll wear more formal clothes if called for. I'm cool with just being a slob, though.

Favorite Beverage and Consumption Freq: Oh, you mean beer? Yeah, about that....

Political Philosophy: Very conservative, and I call myself a staunch Republican, but I'm not married to any ideology and I don't bow at the altar of the party line. (so yeah, I'm mixed up in the head). Some libertarian leanings, some conservationist beliefs, etc.

Religious Philosophy: Roman Catholic, though some Protestant and evangelical teachings have cause me to question some things (e.g., praying for the dead, adoration of the saints, etc.)

Musical Favorites: Anything except chick rock and New Age. I tend to listen to one or two genres for a few months and rotate. Right now, it's classic rock (Aerosmith, the Beatles, Bob Dylan, etc.)

Favorite Quote from an ND Coach: It's the one where Ara talks about his first pep rally in the old Fieldhouse. He looks down at the balcony at the raving mass shouting "We're #1! We're #1!" and remarks: "This is how Hitler got started!" There are others, but this one takes the cake.

Miscellaneous Data: If you remember any of the mess here from the Post-Ty debacle in Dec. of 2004, you might remember that someone posted a story about a kid who was cursed out by the Pro-Ty folks in SDH for having a somewhat anti-Ty quote in the South Bend Tribune. I'm that kid. I also claim Southern Cal as a favorite team (don't lump me with Brendan Loy, though; he's a total tool).
