Name dropping.

I was driving a '76 El Dorado drop top that once belonged to Matt Zuckerman, also of Atari. An 18-wheeler drove over and through the car. At the time, the car belonged to John Snead, president of BSN.

Matt gave the car to John Snead in lieu of $4,000 in a total payment of $25,000 for an agency agreement to sell AT&T SDN. Snead insured the car for $14,000. The insurance company settled for $9,800.

I still have a mangled hubcap from that car.

About Snead - I was on the sales management team at BSN. I wrote INTEGRITY in block letters and hung it on the wall. One day, Snead comes in, sees the sign and says, "Inntuhgritty? What's that?"

Snead hired me because I am a Marine. I doubled my annual income that year. Doubled it again the next year.
Semper Fi!

By any chance do you watch NCIS Anthony?

I very much know that Tews...Naval Criminal Investigative Service

I watch it to see Special Agent Gibbs in action. His character is based upon a Marine turned Naval Agent/Investigator. The fact that they base his character on being part army, part investigator makes it a winning combo and very entertaining to watch and follow

Who the hell am I kidding...

The truth is that everyone has a TV show that they somewhat obsess about. NCIS would be mine. You can ask me anything about the show and I can probably tell you what you want to know. The three episodes that air certain days of the week on USA always have me as a viewer...

Some episodes I have watched over 10 times...it never gets old to me
