The Most Terrifying 7 Minutes, 48 Seconds of Your Life [Video]

I am scared to death of heights.

The tallest thing I have even been on (except flying, and I'm not fond of that either) was the 1,149-foot Stratosphere Tower in Las Vegas, and I wasn't really fond of it.

Before starting to work part-time for the Grand Rapids Griffins, I wasn't even really great in the upper deck at Van Andel Arena. It's gotten better, but I still hate heights.

Hear Greatest Punchline to a Joke Ever!

When the whole Jay Leno-Conan O'Brien thing happened a couple years back, I was interested. But not because I loved Conan.I thought he was OK, and his show was OK, too.

And considering almost 100 million households in the country COULD watch Conan -- and usually about a million do (not huge numbers, but still), it wasn't a big deal.

It’s Kentucky Derby Day!

Today is the 463rd running of the Kentucky Derby! The Derby has a bit more importance to me, as I lived a year in Louisville, so I got to experience it first hand. The actual Derby is a culmination of a two-week long party, called smartly "The Kentucky Derby Festival" From the world's largest fireworks display (Thunder over Louisville) to endless celebrity parties and about 20 races, the Festival takes over the city. Think of Artprize, with horse racing. And drinking.

May 2, 1939: The Day The World Learned About Lou Gehrig’s Disease

It was 75 years ago that Lou Gehrig took himself out of the New York Yankees' lineup, ending his ironman streak at 2,130 games.

That record was eclipsed by the Baltimore Orioles' Cal Ripken, Jr. in 1995.

That's the thing about records like that. I THINK Ripken's consecutive games played streak number is 2,632, but I'm not sure.

I KNOW Hank Aaron hit 755 home runs, but I'm only "pretty sure" that Bonds guy hit 763. The original record-holder usually is better remembered.

‘Shark Tank’ Entrepreneur Who Got Away [Video]

My guilty TV pleasure?

It's not MTV's "Teen Mom 34" or TLC's "Sex Sent Me to the ER" (although ...) or ANY housewives that say they are "Real," but I doubt are.

No, my TV pleasure is five arrogant multi-millionaire and billionaire investors who look to get richer and squash dreams. My favorite TV show is ABC's "Shark Tank."
