And here we go with the ninth edition of SHOUT OUT! Friday. Let me know if you liked SHOUT OUT! Friday by leaving a Commment at the end of this entry. And if you didn't, you can still leave one! Or if you'd like to give someone a personal SHOUT OUT! just e-mail me and I'll consider it for the following week.
This week's first SHOUT OUT! comes from Tyler in Janesville, Wisconsin. I know Janesville very well having visited numerous times when I had a client (Mercy Health System) there. Tyler writes "I'd like to give a SHOUT OUT! for the Vikes fans who bleed Purple and live in Cheeseland. We do battles against insurmountable odds here every year. We have the best seat in the house when we blast the Packers at Lambeau!!!!!!!! Look for us during this NFC North Championship Season of 2005!" Tyler also provided the Star Tribune photo you see below which shows him abd Cris Carter from the 2000 season. Tyler is in the white jersey. I do believe I even recall that TD!
A animal SHOUT OUT! to seven-year-old chimpanzee, Rudi, who shows us just how much talent is needed to play golf, which is as Twain uttered "a good walk spoiled."
A five-ring SHOUT OUT! to London for winning the bid to host the 2012 summer Olympics. Don't you just love it when the Frenchies get it in the shorts?
And speaking of the Frenchies, a red-white-and-blue SHOUT OUT! to Lance Armstrong and Team Discovery Channel who set a team-time-trial record in the fourth stage of the 92nd Tour de France cycling race, between Tours and Blois.
