I once had wealth, power, and the love of a beautiful woman. Now I only have two things: my friends, and... uh... my thermos. Huh? My story? Okay. It was never easy for me. I was born a poor black child. I remember the days, sittin' on the porch with my family, singin' and dancin' down in Mississippi...
That is a great story Hardtop and a sweet ride. I thought this post would turn into more than just surface stories, each usually tells something about the person. I can't wait to hear other stories.

My twitter name is peaceknuckle. That's just my old name I used when I was a professional wrestler, not really much of a story.

Once I got the blog going I realized this image was fuzzy and rather pathetic so after finding the goat image on getty images and getting a high resolution image, adding a few cartoon effects I updated my avatar to a cleaner more "artsy" image:
Better isn't it... be sure to follow me on twitter and read and comment on my blog, I hope MG 2.0 is an improvement and anyone visiting the blog is enjoying the content.

Nelson Algren, "In one of the few autobiographical sections of his essay Chicago: City on the Make, Algren recalls after moving to Troy Street being teased by neighborhood children because he was a fan of the South Side White Sox, while they were fans of the North Side Chicago Cubs. They discovered his allegiances when he revealed his favorite player to be White Sox shortstop Swede Risberg. This teasing only increased when Risberg and other White Sox players were implicated in the 1920 Black Sox Scandal. Despite going on to spend most of his life on the North Side, Algren remained a White Sox fan into his later years.
It's the tattoo I have on my right shoulder. In the center is the Chicago flag, The banner around it says "celebrate the ugly things," which is a quote from a Dillinger Four song in where they quote Nelson Algren. Symbolizes two of my favorite things - music and the city of Chicago.
This is blasphamy is these parts.
