Johnnie Walker

I've never been good at filling these things out, but here it goes. I like long walks in cold mountain air, preferably with snow on the ground. I enjoy drinking fine soda by the crackling fire, and deep tissue massage. I hope to one day grow up an become and astronaut, so I can fly to Venus to see if that's really where women come from. If it's true, I'll bring one back for you, too. Unless it's a dude you want, and then you're out of luck...sorry. My favorite month is October, because Halloween is the best holiday ever! It allows me to openly proclaim my love and obsession with scary movies without being seen as some sort of lunatic. Okay, not too much of a lunatic. I'm a huge fan of rock and metal music, and you'll often hear me blasting the control room speakers into oblivion every night during my show. My engineer doesn't like me very much, since he has to fix them. Sorry, Mike.

But before he hits the road, Oscar De La Hoya took one more shot at Floyd, with an open letter to Mayweather in Playboy.

In this letter, Oscar calls Floyd "boring", and "afraid to take chances". Which is totally true.

Monroe is the Drunkest City in Michigan and We Know Why

MSN did a "scientific" study of "all" the cities in each state, to determine which city in every state is the drunkest! They looked at the number of people binge drinking in each state, each city, and the number of alcohol-rated accidents, to make their decisions.

Monroe turns out to be the most drunk city in Michigan, and we think you only have to look at a map to know why.
