I have put this off long enough. With a nod to Nate and Janna; here are 5 odd, interesting, or otherwise strange facts about the Captain.
1. Guilty Pleasures:
I was, in high school, a HUGE fan of Rick Springfield. I wanted desperately to BE Rick Springfield. In fact, I have, on more than one occasion, dressed myself to that end. It is also worth mentioning that I once went to a dance in the most amazing “Mike Reno of Loverboy” get-up you have ever seen.
2. Shod for Success
I have a shoe fetish. Most of my clothes come from Target but I simply can not abide cheap shoes. I currently own 4 pair of Doc Martens (Black Boots, Brown Boots, Sandals, Shoes) and one pair of Birkenstock Sandals.
3. He Writes the Songs
My wife has NEVER heard me sing a Barry Manilow love ballad… and she married me anyway!
4. Bilbo, Frodo, and Me
I have been told by more than one person that I have “Hobbit – Feet” (see item #2).
5. Give My Regards to Broadway
I have portrayed, on stage, Marryin’ Sam in “Li’l Abner”, Curly in “Oklahoma”, and The Pirate King in “Pirates of Penzance”.
