    I sure didn't have any teachers that looked like her when I was in high school. Wouldn't have ditched so many classes and hung out in the smoking area.

    Pro golfer Jim Furyk was one of my classmates and a teammate of mine on the 1980 MT Royals B division baseball championship team. I still have the Polaroid of our team picture. Jim, me and two other kids in class used to hang out in 4th grade together and punch each other in the balls all the time. It was some sort of sick game we played.
