5 Things You Don't Know About Brando
All right, so this big "5 things you don't know about me" blog phenomenon is seriously peaking. Otherwise, I certainly wouldn't be interested, but since I'm willing to try anything once – and that means aaaanything – I'll go ahead and let you in on five stupid details most people don't know about Brando.
1) For one, I once, but no longer, resembled the stereotypical gamer. Many of the people in my current geographical location, and those I work with at Gizmo, don't know that I was a portly penguin, chewing up chicken wings and other deep friend poultry parts left, right, and center. My average day involved little exercise beyond twiddling a pair of Xbox or PS2 thumbsticks, with my best hope for burning calories becoming a virtual experience, via Tommy Vercetti or the Master Chief. Now, I exercise five days a week and am a lean little bugger. I still game, a helluva lot, but I take forty minutes out of my day to run somewhere.
2) Secondly, I was a major pain in the ass – at times – when I was a kid. I once almost burned down a camping park, and later stole candy for about three months from the same location before being caught. Yeah, I was a reaaal rebel.
3) Third, I once dislocated a guy's shoulder with a body check. In ice hockey. And, I'm still proud of it.
4) Fourth, I got caught stealing beer out of the back of a pick up truck. My partner in crime dropped a bottle, it made enough noise to wake the dead and decrepit, and about thirty slo-pitch players waddled after us, eventually weeding us out of another friend's place. Those fine athletes decided not to press charges against two high school hooligans, but I got grounded for a good whole month.
5) Finally, I enjoyed the movie Titanic. In fact, it touched me deeply. There, I said it.
Well, since I broached the topic of exercise, I know evangelical fitness guru Anna Woods will be interested in boring you all with a rant against gizmos or gaming. She's a cool gal, but blaming consoles for kids getting fat…that's just wrong! Anyhow, I tag you, Ms. Anna Woods, editor FitnessGear101.com.
