5 Things You Didn’t Know About Me

I’ve been tagged for this 5 things you didn’t know about me.  Here goes.

1) I play pickup basketball at 5 A.M. on Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday at the local YMCA.  Been doing it for almost a year.  I feel so much better after playing in the mornings. It’s really cool that we can get a pickup game of 8-14 people so early in the morning.

2) I played basketball against Kobe Bryant in a high school summer league basketball tournament.  He was good…great, but I had no real idea who he was.  How things have changed, today high school athletes are famous by their sophomore year – See O.J. Mayo.

3) I despise cell phones.  There is something to be said for not being reachable.  I didn’t get my first cell until 2 years ago. I was forced by my wife.

4) Paul O’Neill was my neighbor for a time.  He had a batting cage & automatic pitch thrower set up and numerous professional baseball players came over to hang out.  I was 9 years at the time, it was unbelievable cool. 

5) I’ve sent over 10 million emails in my life.  I did a ton of email marketing for P&G a few years ago.  They have huge lists, all opt in of course, so I’m not worried about the spam cops.

  1. Email or Spam? 😉 I still do my fair share of email marketing but nothing like the numbers back in the day.
