“I had no idea Father Flynn was a two wing looper!”
“Brotha’s got skillz.”
“Well put, Monsignor. Very well put.”

Urban Daddy reports that new table tennis club SPiN New York is accepting membership applications. For $500 annually, the 300 founding members will receive a 50% discount on table reservations, paddle storage, locker room access, access to Members Only events, and much more. The plaid-clad lad looking like Richie Tenenbaum? Yeah, that’s me.

George Girdler: Motorcycle Cowboy

Judging from childhood photos, my earliest career aspirations could easily be summed up in one word: cowboy. Rarely was I without my black 4X Beaver Stetson, Dan Post boots, Rodeo Champion belt buckle, and a pair of cap guns at my hip. Tooling around the LIFE archives, I came across George Silk’s photos of Mr. George Girdler, wild horse hunter of Australia. I call him The Motorcycle Cowboy.
