I'm sorry Carl, but you just got back from Disney World and I didn't. You'll get over it.

Maybe you could offer to take him to Via Napoli as a peace offering just to make sure he goes. Just make sure you make an ADR first.
I can definitely be bought.

Hey, I know there aren't a lot of Beverly fans, but hear me out. What is the most important factor in a team name? Something that brings out a warm and fuzzy feeling in everyone or something that strikes fear into the heart of an opponent? I think we know which one is the more intimidating choice.

Like Boliermakers or Hoosiers

I guess the shirt needs a Beverly logo on it. Or people will be calling you Beverly during the run.

Once you've run a half marathon I think you can call yourself a runner.

The guy I did the half with wore a "running for Beverly" with the Beverly logo. I'll see if I can find a pic of him

This is very good advice. ( see another sign you are a runner). Make sure the store checks to see if you pronate. They should be watching you run on a treadmill. I've had people check me when I walk and I get different results almost every time.

But... is it even possible for a pair of nemesises to be on the same team?
It’s a big couch. We’ll put one of the other guys in charge of keeping you and me at either end of the thing.
Then we can just throw food and insults at each other over everyone else’s head.

Perfect plan…
the only folks that can get hurt are the other guys on the couch.

Well heck of a day fellow dads, I'm sitting at a tire place, got a flat on the company truck and was no where dry to change the tire so I'm all muddy, I'm going to blame Nate on this one, first time I hear from him in a week and I get a flat, closed case!

All this run talk makes me wanna start training for one, if I didn't have 2 trips already planned I would do the TOT this year, I'm going to shoot for the 2014 one

That's great! Maybe we can have Team reuse resort mugs, Team make 5 ADRs for the same time, & Team pool hoppers.

I just need to follow my own advice and go do this once I can walk normal again.

That is a pain in the Beverly. Hope the rest of your day isn't as bad.

Lou is a really great guy.

I got the Dr. D Shirt in Feb. of 2012 in the Emporium.

I did see a few in the Merchants of Venus Shop (The one that the Stitch attraction exits through...not to be confused with Mickey's Star Traders.)

Arrived safely in Miami a bit ago. The dogs retrieved from the vet and some of the unpacking done. I'll leave the rest for later because it is time to crash on the couch.

Sorry to hear about the flat. All this talk about running makes me want to order a pizza and drink some beer.

Glad you made it back home. Now, get that grass in the front yard ready. It has been cold up here.
