Yesterday was the 12th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks and, accordingly, there were all manner of tributes and observances around the country. It was also an opportunity for 'truthers'... those who think 9/11 was an 'inside' job... to come out of the woodwork and express their beliefs again. We're all entitled to our beliefs, of course. Hell, there's 'birthers'; those people who are, as best I can tell, are unaware that Hawaii is a state, religious fanatics, Scientologists (what up Xenu?!?), etc. Meanwhile, 61% of people believe in ghosts, 48% of people believe in UFO's (myself included), a guy in Kentucky is pretty damn sure he's shot and killed a chupracabra and Bigfoot just made his first 'appearance' in Nebraska. We all have our beliefs... not all of them are 'out there'... it might something as simple as the best way to make a grilled cheese (grate your cheese first... trust me), the best smartphone, or which actor is best suited to play Batman on- screen. Nevertheless, it doesn't make it any less annoying. Today's question: WHO'S ANNOYING BELIEF DO YOU KNOW YOU'LL HAVE TO HEAR EVERYTIME YOU SEE THEM?
His wife thinks Obama is the anti- Christ... for real
His buddy's girlfriend is vegan and it's an issue every time he sees her. What is it with vegans? You're vegan... good for you... whatever you need to do, but why do WE need to know or care?
His friend hates every single thing Obama does specifically because he just doesn't like Obama. Isn't that how politics works now?
His 82- year- old mother tells him that 'General Hospital' is the "greatest show on TV"... EVERYDAY!
His buddy has a conspiracy theory about everything... and yes, the U.S. government is behind everything
His grandmother believes that anything you smoke or drink is the governments way of keeping you down. If that's true, I'm as down as a man could be
His mother and sister are always going on about the Bible
Your former Sounders goal keeper joined us in studio today. Cool, cool guy. Not very popular in Cologne, Germany... but that's another story for another day.
