This is where I remind readers to count their blessings. Specifically, the blessing that they do not resemble either illustrious male figure skater Scott Hamilton or smug Fox Sports baseball commentator Joe Buck.
The topic arose today as I involved myself in an email discussion among several Grotto friends about the widespread inclination towards smugness found in so many celebrities and public figures. After I fired off an email to the group complaining about Joe Buck's smugness, Grotto contributor CFC IV responded by saying, and I quote, "Does the fact that he looks exactly like you have anything to do with it?"
When I combine this sad fact with the well-established view that I look like Scott Hamilton, it seems that I am destined to spend the rest of my days on a psychoanalyst's couch, trying to carve out a path for myself despite the heavy burden.
Judge for yourself!
