Ever do research on the people you work with?

I was talking with a guy about bowling and he seemed like he knew what he was talking about (as far as ball selection, soles for shoes, etc). He said he played in a few money games over the years, but never really said what. I've heard him talk to a couple of other people about the subject too. We agreed to get together and throw a series or two after work one day this week with a friendly beer wager or something. Anyway, internet searches a a mother fucker these days, so I thought I'd just type in his name to see what I came up with... FUCK! This guy has won more money than 10 years' salary he make with my company. His highest series is just a handful from 900 and several above 875. You just never know...

I guess it's safe to say he's a good bowler.

One of my coworkers is an ex scout sniper. He's seen lots of action and wants to sell one of his rifles with 27 kills. Really cool guy and I make sure not to piss him off

My dad told me about this guy he went to high school with that was some big time world champion motorcycle racer. I thought, "Yeah, yeah, sure, sure," and blew it off. I got tired of hearing about it after a while and looked him up on the Internet. Heh. World Superbike Champion 2 years in a row, among other things.

I work with a guy that was special forces in Vietnam. He doesn't talk much about it, but you can tell just by his mannerisms that he was a cold killer. Still might be..

He rides a turbocharged Hayabusa to work a few times a week.

One other guy I work with says he was Jesse James' airbrush artist at WCC about 4yrs ago. He might be full of it though!

I know a few people that were pro BMX'rs back in the 90s before X-games. Hell one of them probably posts here.

One of my old bosses retired from the NSA. Guy was completely off his rocker. He spoke 5 languages fluently and could spit out facts faster than Wikipedia. His girl friend and her 6 kids kept him up all night and he commuted 50 miles each way. Guy fell asleep driving several times and would pass out mid sentence when you asked him a question.

Well, we went bowling last night. He did rather well...

1st game 286
2nd game 242 (left handed)
3rd game 290

We won't talk about my games but he's putting full attention to me, breaking me of some bad habits I do out there. This'll be interesting to say the least. The guy is very modest considering the game he plays.

There have been several chicks here at my work that were in Maxim, FHM, calenders, etc. We had a Dallas Cowboys cheerleader for a while... not nsure if she's still here. There is an older lady that some say used to be in p0rn, but I don't know if that's true. She's not attractive now at all.

I once drank a 40oz Colt 45 while watching Ted Pritz bowl a guy here on the boards that goes by JKD. JKD owned Pritz of course.
