Too Much Rod Benson?
One great thing about the Internet (beyond enabling complete idiots to have a voice): it allows you to stumble across something you might otherwise never encounter.
Case in point, Rod Benson. I first came across his Yahoo! Sports blog, which led me to his personal blog – www.toomuchrodbenson.com. Turns out Rod Benson is a scholar/athlete currently playing in the NBA D-League for the Dakota Wizards in Bismarck, N.D., has big goals, and is funny as hell.
All signs point towards his becoming a success blog wise, and it would appear his work ethic will make him a success somewhere in the NBA. So, I figured it would be best to hitch the Ben Co. blog to his star.
This makes perfect sense, since both Rod Benson and I have so much in common. Here is proof:
He’s black; I’m painfully white.
He excels at basketball; I can touch the rim on a good day.
His blog gets thousands of hits a day; My blog gets literally tens of hits a day.
He rocked his SATs; I almost failed the math portion completely and barely squeaked by.
He currently resides in Bismarck, N.D.; I’ve been to North Dakota!
His last name is Benson; My name is Ben, and I’m a son!
His blog is witty and amusing; I pretend my blog is witty and amusing!
So you see, almost 50% similarities between our blogs.
Anyway, check him out, but don’t forget about me…please…
