Colleges: University of Tennessee / Texas A&M University
College Degree: B.S. in Psychology with minors in English and Biology.

Current City: After time in Tulsa OK, Bartlesville OK, Dallas TX, Amarillo
TX, and College Station TX, wound up back in Knoxville. I've traveled through
most of the United States and love the cultural and landscape diversity. When
it's all said and done though, the South is where I'm from.
Years Playing Fantasy Football: 16
Favorite things about Fantasy Football: Picking a kicker in the 16th
round that outperforms the overhyped kicker your buddy reaches for in the 7th.
Finding that guy you just KNOW you're right about, sticking your neck out and
telling the whole world, and then watching him come through. But most of all,
giving guys the tools and information to help them dominate their league is
what gets me going every day. That's BY FAR my favorite part of Fantasy Football.
If you were Paul Tagliabue for a Day: Balance the Sunday viewing day
out by moving some of the 1pm games to 4 pm. I'd give Al Davis some kind of
honorary title. I'd institute minimum 40 yard dash times for refs. I'd make
sure Cleveland was never without a team. I'd speed up Instant Replay but make
sure it's never taken away. And I'd make San Diego wear the powder blue throwbacks
Something Odd/Different About You: Did 140.6 at Lake Placid last year.
Am trying again this year. Don't ask me why.
A Brush with Greatness You've Had: Honored to call a few Blue Angel
pilots, a retired Army Three Star General and a Navy Rear Admiral friends. I
spent a few minutes with Muhammad Ali in Las Vegas which was very cool. The
hotel lobby was full of celebrities and nobody seemed to notice. But when Ali
walked in, the room just stopped. Celebrity doesn't impress me at all though.
I see honorable and praiseworthy people every day that never get a moment of
Favorite Movies/DVDs: This is my nightmare question. I can't imagine
only having three movies or three CDs. If I really had to choose though, for
movies I'd go with True Romance, Godfather I, and Fast Times at Ridgemont High.
List Three CDs You Would Want If Stranded On a Deserted Island: Rage
Against the Machine - Live at the Olympic Auditorium, Steve Ray Vaughn - Live
at Carnegie Hall, and my autographed vinyl album from Mojo Nixon and Skid Roper
Marital/Children Status: By far the best advice I could ever give to anyone - Marry
above yourself. I hit the jackpot. We have four children, two boys and two girls
ages 10, 7, 5, and 3. Plus a 115 pound Rhodesian Ridge Back dog. Not many dull
moments at the Bryant House...
- "I regularly get out of control because I'm consistently tossing the
rock a little further challenging myself to new levels of expressing and fulfilling
my destiny on the planet and calibrating my systems to match. How are you
doing?" --David Allen
- "This is my body. I can do whatever I want to do with it. I can push
it, study it, tweak it, listen to it. Everyone wants to know what I'm on.
I'm on my bike busting my ass six hours a day. What are you on?" --Five

- "Better than yesterday, worse than tomorrow." -Unknown
- "Every morning in Africa, a gazelle wakes up. It knows it must run
faster than the fastest lion or it will be killed. Every morning a lion wakes
up. It knows it must outrun the slowest gazelle or it will starve to death.
So, it doesn't matter whether you are a lion or a gazelle. When the sun comes
up, you'd better be ready." --George Allen
Favorite NFL Team: I'm officially a Free Agent Fan.
Hobbies: Family, Football, Boats, Church and Triathlon is pretty much
Dream Car: 1970 2 door Cadillac convertible with a killer stereo (my
college ride) Black H2 Hummer will do nicely for a backup.
Scarface or Goodfellas: Goodfellas. But just barely. Pacino by himself
is unmatchable. But the sum of De Niro, Pesci and Liotta together push Goodfellas
ahead in a close one.
Rather sleep at or on top of Paris Hilton? No thanks. I'll vote the
smoking hot Mrs. Bryant in the USA any day.
People I'd invite to dinner? Stephen Hawking, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Ronald
Reagan, Steven Wright, John Madden, Peyton Manning, Chris Rock, Billy Graham,
Lance Armstrong, Chris Mortensen, Muhammad Ali, James Carville, Tom Brokaw and
