oh good grief.... everybody get happy.... re-laxxxxx.

BurningMan, too serious, Holmes. I used to have a pony tail, and "pony -tail activist" is freakin hilarious. How "metal" can you be? You live in Crowley. Now see? Im messing with you. Do not take me seriously. Im old and drive a beat up truck.

Holy Cross, Jesuit.... so good to have rivalry... made this thread funny, too.

Jimmy, come on. He apologized @ the 1st hole, then took a pic w/ you at the 2nd. He had no way of knowing it would be blurry. You're too old to be that disappointed. You sound reasonable and understanding.

You know everybody assails prominent people with stupidity. Im semi-prominent in SE Texas. (in my biz, most the people dont think we're any big deal / but some people react like they just saw bigfoot.) Anyway, I cant even imagine being really something like Drew Brees. I go some places, and wish I could hide. You would be astounded at how pushy some people can be-- both pony tail activists and trailer park trash. The most obnoxious, drunkest inbred in any club ALWAYS goes straight to me. Occastionally, I do get "Hi, I see you're busy there, (usually Im mixing) but I'd love to hear Free Bird, if you can fit it in." [/REQUEST] "btw, I enjoy your news & commentary. I wonder what its like to talk to a million people? Have you ever messed up?"

But often its, "HEAAEEAY MAAAYAAN.... WHY DONT YOU PLAY SOMETHING GOOD WE CAN DANCE TOO? (50 girls are already dancing.) PLAY FREE BIRD... MAN, THATS WHAT EVERYBODY WANTS TO HEAR. So youre skii miiike! I never listen to your station... yall play too much ____ and you never play ____ ... Yall need to play more _____ (most obscure, untalentd artist possible) PLAY FREE BIRD DAMMIT... NOW... your station sux... TURN THIS CRAP OFF NOW AND PLAY FREE BIRD. YOU HAVE IT? IS IT NEXT? ARE YOU GONNA PLAY IT? HUH? HUH? HUH? HUH? HUH? LET ME TELL YOU SOMETHING... THIS IS HOW IT IS... I KNOW SOMETHING AND I'LL TELL YOU WHAT BECAUSE I KNOW WHAT ITS ABOUT....... HEY B**** PLAY FREEBIRD!

Then a nice person comes along, and I semi snap at them, hopefully catch myself, and make it a point to be nice.

Jimmy, get back up on that horse, and meet your idols.

hey wouldnt it be cool if Lindsay Lohan, Paris Hilton, Brittany Spears, etc, would get out of a car, and nobody cared?

I figure most famous folks are just like the rest of us ... they're a whole lot nicer when you get 'em drunk.

(Insert Ty Cobb, Pacman Jones, Ben Roethlisberger, and other notable exceptions as needed)

Mr Mike is right. About all of it, of course. I was so let down because those situations make all of us, young or old, act like little kids. My buddy is immune to such behavior. He's screaming "I talked to Mickey, Drew. He's got the check ready. Get to work!"

It just wasn't what we expect.

And I'd be super stoked if Paris Hilton didn't get the attention she did, but watching some people (girls mostly) lose their minds over everything they do, makes it much easier to see right through them. Silver lining if you ask me.

He tells Will he goes to JEsuit and he is his idol, told him he always wonders if he is sitting in Wills old desk, etc.. To which Will replied "kiss my @$$, i dont have time for autographs". hes a typical jesuit pr!ck
That sounds like the Will Clark I know; and the jesuit comment shows you know New Orleans...

That's probably true and while they're exceptions, my friend and only lawyer I call friend is one, Jesuit does seem to draw the biggest @##sphincters in the city...

I still have a pony tail, Mike. And everywhere I go, I've got someone looking down on me even though I'm just a regular guy when you get to know me. I could understand if I had piercings on every square inch of my skin, for people to make a rush to judgement. That would stand out. But I don't even have one.

So reading that comment a couple days ago touched a nerve with me. Then he labels me a pony tail activist. That may be funny to you, but my sense of humor isn't wired for sarcasm. It was an insult, not a joke. I make fun of myself all the time. I know the difference. Some people prefer to accept the stereotype and let people talk. I am not one of those people.

If I had a nickel for every time I heard that, the NFL would fine and suspend me.

could it be that you're in Crowley, that people look at you funny? I mean, people looked at me pretty weird in Dayton, TX, when I had all the hair, so I know how you feel.

Of course, Im old, and also super busy, so a lot of things that used to bother me, dont anymore. I was also the only Hispanic in my school, so naturally I ended up with "Pedro" as a nickname. It annoyed me at first, as Im sure "Jumbo, Smurf, Opie, and Juggs" & a million other names annoy people. Meh... I picked my fights, and didnt worry about Pedro. Now, I leave messages for my old classmates that go, "hey, this is Pedro, how the hell are you?"

Oh, and when I flew in the helicopter, there were 4 or so other choppers from other tv stations, and everyone talked to everyone on the radio.... One guy always asked my pilot if he was carrying "that long haired freak." (me) Same guy ended up helping me get a job later on. I let people assume I was some sort of flag-burning, dope smoking, tree hugging whatever-- just for fun. I had fun with it. Everyone of my roasters would give me the shirt off their back.

Anyway, peace to you, and some good vibes too. I enjoy your posting here. You gotta admit, this is actually a pretty tame & civil site, and Im glad you're here. Definitely stick around and talk about something we all agree on--- our love for the Saints (and Louisiana and the Gulf Coast).
