Everyone has "those friends" right? Those friends where you watch a show or movie together and you can turn to them and say "that's you dude!". Sometimes the references are compliments and flattering, other times you're being compared Fat Bastard from Austin Powers. The good, the bad and the ugly I took sometime to compare some of the Free Parking Podcast game to everyone's favorite sports movie characters. Some of these I've had in my head for years - other I came up with for the purpose of this blog but I think they're all pretty dang good. Take a peak and if you know the boys, let me know how I did!
DJ Nater – Brickma from Rookie of the Year
The glasses, the facial hair, the clubhouse moral booster. Not to mention him quoting Mr. Brickma perfectly word for word, line for line from Rookie of the Year. DJ Nater even has a shirt, claiming “Hot Ice”. Coming full-circle, that’s how I would even describe his music mixing skills. Hot ice; the perfect combination of ear blasting, dance-provoking beats and cold, “who hurt you” lyrics.
“The key to being a big league pitcher is the 3 R's: readiness, recuperation, and conditioning! You see, after the game, a lot of guys like to ice up their arm. Still, other fellas think that heat is the way to go. But I have discovered the secret, Henry: hot ice! That's right: hot ice. I heat up... the ice cubes! It's the best of both worlds!”

Memorial Day Weekend for the past five years of my life has been the same. Not spent with family at a barbeque, or on a boat with buddies or at the beach with beer-in-hand. It’s been spent with two radios at my waist, cellphone ringing off the hook and the sound of golf balls getting sent into orbit off the tee. This year Memorial Day Weekend is different for me because for the past five years of my life it has been spent at the ShopRite LPGA Classic.
