Deep Meme's, by Jeff Corbett

By

I was meme'd by Brian Brady the first time, when I divulged that:

  1. I have ADD...What am I writing about again???
  2. I was a former semi-pro soccer player...
  3. Im quiet, rather shy, unlike my online 'voice'... 
  4. I traveled around Europe by myself for two weeks while in college and never told my parents.  They still don't know ;)
  5. I'm afraid of heights (although Ive bungied in the Swiss Alps, and jumped out of a flying plane) and hate driving over long bridges...

Marie Wright called me out this time...so let me think, what else about me could be considered interesting...

 

  1. From 2002-2004 I was (pretty much) obsessed with bench pressing twice my weight, someone told me that was 'Olympic Class Strength'...whether thats true or not, I'm not sure.  I weighed about 210 lbs at the time, so 420 lbs on the big bar was the target.  I reached 420, but my weight increased to 213.  That was as close as I got.  Now I suffer from a torn labrum in my shoulder and can't bench any more than 275 without searing pain. 
  2. I've got 3 tattoos, all Chinese, meaning Wisdom, Perseverance, and Justice.  I've always thought the Olympic rings would be a really cool tattoo to get, but could never justify getting them...see #1.
  3. I have a tornado fetish...I seek them out when there are warnings in my area...So far Ive never seen one :(
  4. Ive got two scars on the back of my head, one about 6", the other about 4" from a fight I got into defending a woman who was knocked down by her boyfriend (I think).  He was drunk, I wasn't, he took a lazy swing, I took a good one and knocked him down.  As I went to pick up the mumbling, bloody drunk guy, the woman grabbed a full Vodka bottle from behind the bar (I was told) and smashed it across the back of my head, 2X.  I mind my own business now. 
  5. My mom took me to my first concert when I was 13...Hall and Oates...that still makes me laugh.


Oh yeah...3 people to pay it forward to (sorry if you've already been hit up):

Jimmy Tomato

Jason Benesche

Jeff, your story is very interesting. I don't blame you for deciding to mind your own business. But I do applaud you for trying to protect the woman.

Your photo kinda reminds me of Russell Crowe! Thanks for sharing you with us.............
