A high school wrestler's amazing gesture after a loss in the state championship match brought tears to the eyes of many spectators, and it's not hard to see why.
After falling to Mitchell McKee in Minnesota's 120-pound class, Malik Stewart went over and embraced McKee's father, Steve, who is battling terminal cancer. (thepostgame.com)
Birthday: October 28th
Favorite Foods: Any veggies, pizza and even though I'm a vegetarian, every once in a while, I order the biggest slab of prime rib on the menu (medium rare)
Things I Hate: Rude people, uncomfortable shoes and wet lettuce (I'm a big salad person and if the lettuce hasn't been properly dried, it makes the dressing watered down and the entire salad gets soggy..GROSS!)
Favorite Bars: I don't have a favorite, but I do enjoy a good dive bar. Pool tables and dart boards are always a plus, oh- and the music should never be too loud unless there's a live band or it's a bar with a dance floor. I mean, seriously, why should we have to listen to some crappy old song blaring over the speakers when all I really want to do is hear the the conversation at the table. Then again I do wear headphones everyday for work, so my hearing is probably less then fabulous.
Favorite Country Artists: Gary Allan. I saw him before I was working in country music, so I didn't really want to go. Turns out the people who dragged me in ended up wanting to leave early, but I was loving the music so much, I stayed at the concert by myself. It was awesome! Also, I'd like to add Brad Paisley and Sugarland to the list...LOVE THEM!
Something You Might Not Know About Me: Growing up in International Falls, MN, my family actually lived on an island in the summer. It's true. There was no TV, which is why I fell in love with radio, I listened non-stop. We had to take a boat across the lake everytime we wanted to go into town. It was a great way to spend the summers, that is, until I started caring about what my hair looked like- all summer I sported the "wind blown" look! To this day I can make a bonnet/wind protector helmet out of any camouflage coat, pants or vest you can throw at me.
Confession: I'm a speed walker. For anyone who doesn't know what that REALLY is, you're probably saying "so what"? But for those who've witnessed how truly idiotic it looks, let's just say, "you know what I'm talking about". I get laughed at and taunted on a daily basis.
