There ya go.
To close the week so I can get out and do some yard work before it gets dark...
I was a consultant for a company named "BearingPoint" which no longer exists. They sponsored Phil Mickelson though, and I managed to get around with him, but that's another story for another day.
In any case, they emailed all associates offering triple salary for anyone willing to take a project in the GreenZone in Iraq. My Father pointed out I had no wife or kids, so...take it.
All was good until the guy at the desk next to me got kidnapped. Google it. I never forgot him. Any, and every, conference call I was on after that I asked for status before the call closed. It's what I would have hoped for if it were me. Really though....the f-ing company and world moved on. Fortunately, he was set free after 2.5 year.
You know I'm a cyclist. Below pic of me in my BearingPoint cycling jersey from the 150 mile Houston to Austin ride dated May 2008.
Remember I was in Houston from my time with Enron before they tanked in 2001 (pic of that below too).
Also pic of a me in a Blackwater T-shirt I traded a black BearingPoint/Callaway Phil Michaelson hat for (pic further below). BearingPoint, by the way, was spun off KPMG which is how we got him. Pic of that farthest below...and I just noticed he was with Callaway there too.
....Can we double my win count for the week?
