The book was was #1 for six months straight on the New York Times best selling insomniacs list, and was awarded the 2002 Medical Miracle Medal for curing sleep depravity.

Born in Michigan, he's still a die hard Detroit Lions fan (stop laughing) and usually dies even harder around Week 5 or 6 as the Lions begin their early hibernation from the playoffs.

He resigned as President of the Atlanta Chapter of the Detroit Lions Fan Club the day Wayne Fontes was hired, and got drunk and ran around his neighborhood naked in celebration the day Matt Millen got canned. These days, his wife has to remind him that Fantasy Football is just a game, that is, until the playoffs roll around and she gets a chance to look at the payouts. Then she magically turns into the second coming of Buddy Ryan, and begins throwing punches when he does not pick the correct starters and she sees her potential windfall fly out the window.
