    tony answers yr questions of victory and intrigue 

    timmay!!!!! : i gave up hope for lent … what’d you give up?

    more than im willing to admit publicly at this point.

    world i was gonna ask you (sorry i don’t already know the answer to this) if you had to pick only one author to read for the rest of your life…. you can only pick ONE whom would it be?

    im sure most people would pick mark twain but im partial to charles bukowski, especially in this scenario because buk was a great novelist, poet, letter writer, and short story writer.

    i realize theyre teaching “Hollywood” and “Women” in schools now, but I wish they’d spend more time on his poetry. Collections like “You Get So Alone Sometimes It Makes Sense” and “Septuagenarian Stew” would delight young minds, I’m sure.

    jimh: Hi Tony, I have successfully avoided it so far,do you think my life would be better if I joined the world on facebook?

    Funny thing about Facebook. It will get you laid, but it will also cause you strife in your relationships. I’ve seen people get in fights over profile pictures, how much and whose page someone commented on, and so many other trivial weirdnesses.

    It does help me remember peoples birthdays though.

    5chw4r7z The Reds and Cards both have pitching injuries and the season hasn’t even started. An opening for the Cubs to sneak into the race?

    The Cubs are doomed this year. Strictly a rebuilding year. Starling Castro and Marlon Byrd will shine, but the rotation is iffy and our $10 million first baseman didnt even hit .200 last year.

    We’re going all the way.

    Alyson Which Canadian House of Commons party should I vote for based on their leader’s name?
    Bloc Québécois – Gilles Duceppe
    New Democratic Party – Jack Layton (he’s got a moustache!)
    The Conservative Party – Stephen Harper
    The Liberal Party – Michael Ignatieff

    Matt Good.

    meg: What is your advice for VCU when they play Butler in a tournament that many people thought they didn’t deserve to be in?

    None of us deserve anything. What have we done? We were born from huffing and puffing and after we die we’ll turn to dust. Why so serious indeed. Thus while we walk the crust we should get ours no matter what it is, but especially if it has to do with collegiate athletics where the young men and women play for free and everyone else gets paid mo money mo money.

    Both VCU and Butler are underdogs and someones going to the big dance.

    May as well be you.
