I've Been Blog-Tagged

It would be nice if cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Tag in this situation were a watch, but it turns out Martin McKeay has blog-tagged me. I'm supposed to mention five items you probably don't know about me, and cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365n name five of my fellow bloggers. Here goes.

  1. I'm a 1994 graduate of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 US Air Force Academy. I graudated third of 1024 cadets, with degrees in history and political science, and minors in French and German. However, my whole life I wanted to attend my backyard school, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). I was accepted to USAFA first, and when cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 letter arrived cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365re seemed to be no question about where I should attend. Admission to USAFA requires acceptance by cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 school (not easy for a nearly-blind non-flyer like me) and Congressional appointment (thanks Ed Markey and Ted Kennedy -- I can't believe I said that). So, USAFA was cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 "long shot" and it seemed like cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 opportunity of a lifetime. I still wonder if I should have attended MIT (on an Air Force ROTC scholarship, which I also received). At least I can claim Academy heritage, like my favorite historical figure US Grant.

  2. I ran cross country, indoor, and outdoor track in high school. I lettered in all three and was captain of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 indoor track team my senior year. I credit joining cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 cross country team my junior year as fundamentally altering cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 course of my life and I am thankful for that experience. I am very proud of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 "Most Improved" award I received my senior year, which acknowledged me moving from cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 back of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 JV team to cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 third fastest runner on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 varsity team in one year.

  3. I studied martial arts seriously from 1994 through 2002. I did some Karate and Judo before cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365n and some Jeet Kune Do and Kung Fu after that span, but nothing as hard core as that eight year period. During that time I studied with Michael Macaris (Kung Fu), Troy Baker (Tae Kwon Do and Modern Arnis), and Curtis Abernathy (American Kenpo). I did try Wing Tsun before American Kenpo, but that disaster means I won't tell you cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 name of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 instructor. One day I would like to return to studying martial arts, although a shoulder injury makes me reluctant.

  4. I am a non-practicing Amateur Radio ("ham") operator. My dad is one and my grandfacá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r (his dad) was also. I earned my Tech license to try packet radio, which is basically a dead art.

  5. I am an Eagle Scout. For my project I organized a road race to raise money for a scholarship fund in honor of a high school friend who died of leukemia.


Here are my five tag victims:

  1. Dru Lavigne

  2. Anton Chuvakin

  3. Harlan Carvey

  4. CS Lee

  5. Richard Stiennon


I think that's a nice mix of people with technical blogs.
