Tom’s Triumphs – Ice Fishing is….Fun?

For the majority of my life, I’ve been content to be a mostly solitary creature. My primary hobby involves sitting in a recliner in my basement, ridiculously close to my belovedly over-sized TV. I’m happy to spend hours upon hours in fictional worlds, preferably with a tumbler of whisky to keep me hydrated.

Occasionally we all have to bust out of our comfort zone to expand our horizons, right? So what happens when you take The Tom out of that natural habitat and dump him into a frozen wasteland without power? Hopefully you get one heck of a column out of it. Read on to find out!

Tom’s Triumphs -Surviving 15,000 Sweaty Women on the Backstreet

I have never been much of a concert-goer. To me, I’ve always looked at the cost of the ticket and compared it to a video game – and the game has always won. And when you break it down to taco terms, a video game is 120 tacos. And I love tacos. My wife, however, loves concerts and has a big thing for the Backstreet Boys.

So what do you do for the woman of your dreams for her first Mother’s Day? You get her floor seats for the Backstreet Boys, and sit back and enjoy the ride.

Naming conventions aside, I am an unabashed webhead and I’m always up for a new Spider-Man movie.
