Editor’s note: Greggo doesn’t want us to edit this.  So we won’t.

this blog offering is a little different…i am gonna give some written “shout-outs” to some very important people in my life…please bear with me…but also read on…these folks are special..and best of all…they’re all cool….

first up is my man jim glass…he owns glass motors on oaklawn ave. in dallas…that is the absolute best place to get your car worked on…jim has been in biz forever…and he treats his customers right…he is a rarity…an honest car repairman…if it concerns a car…jim can fix it…

second is a friend of mine forever…his name is tommy jordan…the epitome of a good dude…he is also one of the funniest guys I know…if he would have chosen radio for a career…he would have been huge…a story about tommy…we were at colonial golf tourney one year…and we were walking with former champ keith clearwater…on one hole keith came up short on a putt….and as we were making our way down fairway…tommy and Keith locked eyes…and fearless tommy blurted out right to his face…”dammitt..stop lagging and go for the hole”…I cringed…tommy laughed…great guy!!

my terrific friend chris kyle…he was the star of the nbc reality show “stars earning stripes”…and now on the discovery channel’s “sons of guns”…we all know what a bad-ass chris is…(read his book..”american sniper”)…but he is also one of the most charitable guys I’ve ever known…check out his company craft international and see the charity work he does…then volunteer to help him out…we owe it to real heros like chris….

my fellow tcu pal john gleaton of comanche…first..he raised a great daughter…my dear friend elizabeth (another frog)…but on the opening game at new amon carter…he provided me with some primo tickets on the new swanky club level…wouldn’t hear of me paying for them…we frogs are a close knit bunch…and john leads the pack…

another cool dude I want to recognize…my buddy brett at omaha’s gi surplus store on white settlement road in ft.worth…they have the best supply of military gear in the state…always a unique item…always a great deal…go by and say hello…and while you’re at it..buy a t-shirt and show you’re support for our brave troops…

my long time friend billy clyde gillespie…going thru some hellish times right now…we’ve been like brothers for over 34 years…we all have our faults..and clyde is no different…but..he’s like blood to me…so don’t expect me to be unbiased…I support him 100%…and if I can..let me ask you to hold a good thought for clyde…

let me finish with one of the most fascinating characters I’ve ever come upon…eddie gossage of texas motor speedway…he’s the absolute best at his craft…but also a giant of a human being…I am very proud to call him a friend…but…let me utter this again…in the cowboys/packers 1967 ice bowl game…jerry kramer was offsides…I don’t care what lombardi said…besides edward…you’re from tennessee…I smell packer bandwagoning on your part…I’m not sure the rooting-for gods will allow you being a green bay fan…you must stick with the titans and middle tennessee state…ok…now that I’ve pissed ya off…let me tell ya how great the “wild asphalt circus” is…I hope I’m still welcome at tms??

My best buddies…t-bar..nascar dennis..#61 mike bulla..judd..craig dewitt…big dick hunter..and of course…the brothers black..mikal and darin…mikal sends me a text every day and has for almost 3 years…it’s a simple message between he and i…but it keeps me grounded and motivated…i love all you guys..

And lastly…my lovely jenn…she saved my life…she makes me tick she keeps me always headed in right direction…she is the greatest gal on the planet…I love her more than life itself…without her I am done…

Thanks for allowing me to use this space to give thanks…I don’t think I do it enough in my often stingy selfish life…so I appreciate you bearing with me…

Love..peace..and great friends…

Greggo
