Wall of Heroes.

Time for a little insight into my soul.  I have decided to compile a list of people that inspire.  A list of people that I wish I could be more like.  My hall of fame, my "Wall of Heroes".

Jack LaLanne
I don't care what anyone says, the power of juicing is real.  Anyone that is capable of pulling a rowboat with their teeth while swimming in handcuffs has earned a permanent spot on my Wall of Heroes.  Rest in peace my old friend.

My Dad
No my Dad isn't Nolan Ryan.  But he did have a legendary pitching career for the Malad Mighty Dragons in High School.  He would have pitched for BYU too, but he was too busy wooing my Mom...or something like that.  Other reasons why my Dad is on my Wall of Heroes:  He's crazy good at trivial pursuit, he's hit several holes in one throughout his golf career, and not once in my entire 26 years of life can I remember him ever raising his voice to my Mom.  

Thomas S. Monson
Prophet and President of the LDS Church.  If he told me to jump off a bridge I would do it with a running head start.  Nuff said.

Frank Dux
If I can believe everything I learned about Frank Dux from the movie Bloodsport (which I do), he can punch the top of a pile of bricks while only breaking the bottom one.  Nuff said again.

Jimmer Fredette
Probably the best basketball player...ever.  He broke BYU's career scoring record last night while hanging 52 points on the only team to beat him twice this year.  I've seen him play live around 30 times.  This one time the entire BYU basketball team was walking along a beach.  They looked back and saw only one set of footprints.
