If you do not know me (I mean, really know me) then there is something you need to understand before you read this blog: I value the truth above everything else... except a good laugh. A good laugh will almost always beat the truth as far as I’m concerned. Everything you read on this blog will be true, somewhat true, or something I made up in an effort to get a laugh. Sometimes I will go on a rant that I don’t really mean (or only kind of mean). Sometimes I will mean what I write only to completely change my mind a year, month, or day later. Such is life. By reading this blog you agree not to get offended by anything I write (or, at the very least, you agree not to tell me or anyone else that you are offended). It is worth noting that my employer does not endorse my blog (or even read it, to tell you the truth). The Wife also does not endorse my blog (though she will read it from time to time). I am not paid to write this... it’s just my way of giving back to the community. I have, and will, touch on a wide range of subjects and will give my opinion on these subjects. Again, most of what I say is for laughs but every now and then I will say what I really think and feel (see my views on Westboro Baptist Cult). How will you know when I’m serious and when I’m trying to get a laugh? You’ll know. And if you don’t know, well... maybe this isn’t the best thing for you to be reading. So, sit back, read and enjoy. Leave comments if you want and don’t be afraid to publicly follow me.

2   Sgt. Maj. Basil Plumley   played by Sam Elliott   (1st) Movie: We Were Soliders Once…   -   I tried to keep this list as just fictional characters (which is why Lou Gehrig isn't on this list)… but this guy. Wow. I read the book long before I saw the movie and, in my opinion, Sam Elliott nailed this role. He played it exactly how I pictured it when I was reading the book.

1   Rocky Balboa   played by Sylvester Stallone   (1st) Movie: Rocky   -   You can make a case for a lot of these characters being #1 on this list. Let me tell you why Rocky is #1. Rocky is the only fictional character (that I know of) to be inducted into a real hall of fame. Yep, Rocky Balboa is in the Boxing Hall of Fame. THAT'S the sign of a great movie character.
