Nothing comes to mind.

Backgammon, pinochle, hold 'em, pool, dominoes


What is your absolute favorite game - and who taught you to play?

Backgammon without a doubt. Learned on my own - mostly by getting beat from the best at Eliters such as Tosscube and Rcstoff (sp?).


Do you currently hold any position in Eliters? Is there any particular position in which you might be interested?

None


What is your proudest achievement in life?

Sportsmanship


If you could offer one suggestion to improve Eliters; what would it be?

Nothing I can think of - it is pretty good as it is.


If you had one wish; what would it be?

Eliters is full of the best people to sharpen your skills and become a better player.

I was a Group Leader in BGY at a time when we had many TDs and BGY was in the top 3 of all leagues in Eliters.


What is the funniest thing that has happened to you since joining Eliters?

Nothing to think of


What is the most embarrassing thing that has happened to you as a player or TD?

I thought annettelewis didn't like me anymore because she didn't talk to me. I soon found out I accidently placed her on ignore. Felt like a fool.


If you could be one person for a day; who would you be and why?

Someone rich so they could pay off a guy named lloyd329's debt and bills and put some extra cash in his nest egg.


You are given five minutes to evacuateyour house; the kids and pets are safe - which three items would you grab?

Wife, since she wasn't mentioned in question. Car Keys so we could drive away. My son's medicine (I guess).

I listen to music...


Name your three favorite movies:

I like history so my favorites are: Saving Private Ryan, Braveheart, and Titanic. I had tears in my eyes in all three.

Beating Tosscube. Pleasure to beat him. Feel guilty because he is soooo old.


When I grow up I want to be just like:

The one and only.....................TOSSCUBE
