200 Posts – The Men With the Nets Haven’t Caught Me Yet!

Ok how did this happen? Two hundred posts. I know there are some people out there that say it’s two hundred too many but I like to think there is someone out there who has read this blog and at least smiled.

By this point someone out there must have lost a bet. If I had to wager on it, it would be either Len Testa or Matt Hochberg. I knew I’d make it at least this far because of an overactive imagination and possible adult ADD. That’s a good creative mix. It allows you to hear something innocent or something other people would completely overlook and run rampant with it.

I want to thank everyone who have been the subject of one of my posts and who has not sued me after. Once again the gang at WDW Today got hit the hardest. However, Nathan Rose, Jim Hill, Ricky Brigante, and Lou Mongello were also thrown under the bus in the last 100 posts.

So here we go. Posts 101 – 200:
