10 Things I've Done that You Haven't

Well, I can't think of ten. I can think of one, and I know you're all going to think less of me when I tell you what it is. But I'll tell you anyway. I've seen Slim Whitman in concert. Three times. So there.

I saw Jay and the Americans twice. I kow this doesn't compare with seeing Slim Whitman three times, but as Maynard G. Krebs used to say, I'm just trying to hold up my end of the conversation.

Bet you haven't done any of the following:

1. Saw Janis Joplin and Big Brother and the Holding Company in a club in Old Town, Chicago, late on a cold Fall night. There were only five people in the audience and two of them were Winnipeggers with me.
2. Partied at a Mad Trapper's Rendevous in The Pas, Manitoba.
3. Saw Tiger Woods hit only one shot the day he shot 81 in the British Open in Muirfield, Scotland.
4. Got Linda Lovelace's autograph on my business card.
5. Owned a Renault Caravelle sports car with tube tires.
6. Ordered bathroom fixtures for Cornelius Vanderbilt Whitney.
7. Broke up hockey fights of the Broad Street Bullies aka Bobby Clarke, Dave Schultz, etc., before they turned pro with the Philadelphia Flyers.
8. Got up at 5:30 a.m. when it was 40 below zero to distribute day-old newspapers.
9. Filled sandbags during the Red River (of the North) Flood of the Century in 1997.
10. And my favourite, which was interviewing two empty chairs on live cable TV when my guests didn't show up.

You win, Kent. But all you got from Linda Lovelace was an autograph?

Who will be the first to say "I gagged Linda Lovelace"?
