Tribute

I just added a new link to Craig Fisher's blog. I thought I had added that a long time ago, but alas, I hadn't. I also don't use the word "alas" often, so this was a chance to do that too.

I saw Fish in Chapel at ACU a week ago Friday. It was great to see him. He was here with his old roommates, Stephen Bailey and Brandon Scott Thomas for ACU's Filmfest. It's not often I go to chapel and see people that I was in school with. So it is a welcome surprise when it happens.

Anyway, Fish is one of the greatest guys I know. So, in honor of my new link to Craig Fisher's blog, here are 5 exceptionally random things I semi-remember about going to college with Craig Fisher:

1. Craig drove a 1988 Z24 Red Chevrolet Cavalier. I however think I could be iffy on the year (I wanted to link a picture..but there are none. Wow.)
2. Fish, at one time in his life, could not get enough C&C Music Factory.
3. He would eat Taco Bueno every meal if it were humanly possible.
4. He was the best dancin' white man I knew. He even had the white man's overbite.
5. And if I remember correctly, Craig Fisher is "the exception". Trust me on that.

On a serious note, Craig was one of those guys who had a huge impact in my life without actually knowing it. He was a mentor to me without even trying. He is a great friend. He is above all, a man of God.

Seeing him last week reminded me of all that.

Fish, I pray God's blessings on you, Beth Ann and your boys. Here's to you my friend.

Now, the rest of you go read his blog...

Is there something we should know about you two?????

Seriously, Fish, you are a great guy! I remember having to guard him in basketball at church on Sunday nights and watching him drain long three pointers in my grill all night. I hated that!
