An Interview with DaGecko

Last updated: 12/20/2006
The Fool:
What's your greatest athletic achievement? Little League champ? Ran a marathon? Did 4 consecutive sit-ups?
DaGecko:
I twice blocked the shot of Antonio Davis while he was in college in a pick up game (he later played in the NBA for a few years. He was 6' 10" I am 5'10". I did it by blocking from behind when he was under the basket going for a jam. His friends would point me out whenever they would come into the gym.
The Fool:
What's been your best investment to date, and how did you discover it?
DaGecko:
Invested my "charm" on a gal 27 years ago that became my wife. No other investment has come close in paying off.
The Fool:
What celebrity or public figure do you most resemble?
DaGecko:
In grade school I was told by several kids that I looked like Alfred E. Neumann's What Me Worry? Kid. I gave them matching black eyes which changed their view of how I looked.
