Publisher Is Higher Up Than VP

Okay, here's something funny for you. My wife can't stop talking about the things her and the designer have picked out for Paul Magers house that I just bought. Curtains, blah, blah, blah, sage brush, blah, blah, granite something, whatever. It can get on my nerves, especially after an entire day of meetings. The last thing I want is a meeting with my wife about decorating. But that's not what's funny.

I left the house to grab a beer at the OC with some friends of mine and while we were drinking, some guy came up to us and asked me if I was related to Kevin McHale because I looked like him!

Here's what Kevin McHale looks like, sitting next to Bird:


Can you believe that? Jeff told that guy that he could see what he meant, but McHale is way taller than I am. I mean, come on. I told him that I was the publisher of the Star Tribune and he sounded pretty impressed. He also bought my next Amstel Light for my trouble. If I see McHale at an event, I'm going to tell him that story. He'll love it.

I always thought Par looked more like Ted Danson. Or Boris Karloff.

I just had a little lunch with Kevin McHale. Old-times talk, you know -- from back in the days when we used to work out together. I told him your story, Par. He didn't think it was funny at all. But he did say he thought you were a real up-and-comer, a kid with real promise (Kevin is a keen judge of talent), and he said there might be a spot for you with the Wolves -- you know, after the trial.

Par, I think you look like the Geico cavemen. In a good way. You're taller than them, right? Maybe you *do* have a chance with the 'Wolves ...
