5 Things You Didn't Know About Tim Dierkes

I'm going to veer off the topic of fantasy baseball for one post.  You've been warned.

David Chase at the fine Brock for Broglio blog asked me and some other bloggers to post five things people might not know about me.  Here goes.

1. The best concert I ever saw was Weezer at the Metro in Chicago when they came back from their long hiatus.  I had an extra ticket that I bought for $20 at the Dominick's TicketMaster (there was no line).  I sold the ticket for $100 on eBay and bought two t-shirts with the money.  Dynamite Hack opened for Weezer, and they were terrible.

2. I love fast food.  So much that I might start a blog about it one day.  I love Arby's, Wendy's, McDonald's, Burger King, Taco Bell, and most things like that.  And I get super-excited when my wife and I kick it up a notch and go to Outback, TGI Friday's, P.F. Chang's, etc.  No fine dining for me! 

3. When I was eight, I got to meet then Secretary of State Jim Edgar by winning a bicycle safety poster contest.  He later become governor of Illinois.  I won a red Schwinn bike for my "Be Safe, Wear a Helmet" poster.  I never wore a helmet when riding my bike, ever.

4. Many people meet their spouses through mutual acquaintances, or in various social settings.  My story with Agnes is far more interesting.  Junior year of college, a buddy and I decided to go to a random class in which we were not enrolled.  The goal was to goof around, and perhaps meet girls.  I sat down in Anthropology 102 next to Agnes and we hit it off.

5. As a kid I once got tennis elbow from throwing a baseball so often.  I'm only 25 now but sadly I can't remember the last time I really aired it out in a game of catch.  This and #2 might give you the impression that I'm an overweight fellow but I'm really about 6 feet, 175 lbs.

I will tag Crooked Pitch, Seamless Baseball, and Rotisserie Baseball Musings to get in on the action.
