I Run In The Front: My Life on the Bandwagon

Michael JCorrespondent IDecember 18, 2008

I've been called the f word more times than you could imagine.

Not the f word you're thinking of.

The word haunts me. I wear it like a Scarlet Letter. I hear it from everyone: my friends, my enemies, strangers that meet me on the streets.

My whole life, I have taken offense to the f word and denied it vehemently.

But no more.

I have come to grips with reality and I'm ready to stop living a lie.

My name is Michael J. And I am a Front-Runner.

Every time The Karate Kid comes on TV, I root for the Cobra Kai.

If I were a senior in high school right now, I would make my senior quote "ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE!!!!!"

My iPod is full of Kanye West and Justin Timberlake. I have no patience for indie junk.

I correctly predicted last year's NCAA Men's Basketball Final Four. 

My computer wallpaper is Tom Brady wearing a Yankee hat. 

I have begun to refer to Tim Tebow as "The Chosen One." Thanks, Dan Patrick.

I play Blackjack just to root on the house.

You might think the life of the Front-runner is an easy one.

And it is.
