Sequel to this post!

Now that you've read all those bad metaphors, similies, and what not, here's one that actually comes from ESPN. Listen at about the 1:15 mark. Rhino Page at the perfect time is starting to heat up like a piece of beef at a Mongolian barbecue. I think this is the same commentator who introduced the term "hambone" when referring to four strikes in a row. (I use the term "chicken", incidentally, to refer to that "turkey", or third strike in a row, that doesn't happen - yeah, you get two in a row, then when trying for the third, you get that single pin that's like a weeble - it wobbles, but it doesn't fall down!)

BTW, Rhino Page and I are NOT related. However, my son Chris, who's dang close to being in the PBA himself (he wants to finish college first, good move), has met him.

Brian - you've been tagged with a meme!

1.You have to post the rules before you give your answers.
2.You must list one fact about yourself beginning with each letter of your middle name. (If you don't have a middle name, use your maiden name or your mother's maiden name).
3.At the end of your blog post, you need to tag one person for each letter of your middle name. (Be sure to leave them a comment telling them they've been tagged.)
