Growing up with one older sister, I was my dads "boy." I played soccer, basketball and softball and my dad was my biggest supporter and motivator to be better. Don't get me wrong, I loved it. My dad and I have always had this humorous, sarcastic relationship through poking fun at others and each other. It's safe to say I've learned quite a lot from him as our relationship has grown.

1. Sarcasm is always the answer

2. Sports are meant to be a part of your everyday life


3. BUT, golf will always be the best


4. A temper will get you no where

5. "You can't bullshit a bullshitter"

6. Always listen to your mother



7. Ketchup is for french fries and hamburgers. Never hot dogs.


8. True happiness can be found mowing the lawn.
