I can count numerous times where I have gotten the old timer know it all. Some of their stories are pretty cool, others you just nod your head and hope they go back to a better one..... or just stop talking.

I think my favorite sport in the Olympics is the one in which you make your way through the snow, you stop, you shoot a gun, and then you continue on. In most of the world, it is known as the biathlon, except in New York City, where it is known as winter. ~Michael Ventre, L.A. Daily News
