Born: Male. And that will never change.
Dating Status: Nonexistent. My wife is so unreasonable about this. I don’t get it.
Kids 3 that I’m sure of.¬†Stephi is a child psychology major from Oklahoma St. She plans on becoming a doctor some day so that should take care of any money I thought I’d have for the next 12 years. My son JT is at Kinkaid and not in prison which is where his elementary school teachers thought he’d be by now. My daughter Frankie’s life is cheerleading and shopping. Her mother couldn’t be prouder.
College Affiliation: I went to Knox College who had the nickname “The Ole Siwash” when I went there and have since become the “Prairie Fire.” These are not nicknames that instill fear in the opponent, hence another winless season in Galesburg, Il in 2011. By marriage I’m an LSU Tiger and you can call me whatever you want for this but I always want my wife to be happy with me so I’ll root for the Tigers right up until the doctor tells me that I’m too old to have relations anymore. And my daughter went to Ok. State so I get to root for them because a lot of my money is there.
Likes: Long walks on the beach and LSU wins because that makes my wife happy.
Dislikes: When they say “last call” and LSU losses because that makes my wife unhappy.
Movies: You’d think I’d insert something about porn here but that’s just not me. (See Hoffy’s bio). My favorite movies are the ones about the mafia because that’s always fun and then the genre of Pulp Fiction, Snatch and Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels. I like to think a little but not a lot like Inception (too many layers).
Sign: Aquarius. Very easy going, likes to party.
Pets/Names: A neighbor’s duck wandered over to our house recently and stayed with us a few days. We almost killed it because we gave it nothing but bread which is the equivalent of giving a baby candy for a month. We feed our cat White Socks better but he has to share his food every night with the family of possums that live outside our door.
One Wish: LSU wins the national championship again. That’s always fun in the Granato house.
