Well we have had our new GM now for almost 13 months. It did not take long to realize that he had a different way of saying things. He is for the most part a shoot from the hip kind of guy who comes across as a hick from the backwoods, or a clever good ole boy depending on how you take him. Some think he comes off as arrogant, and others think he is just confident. No matter where you fit in the fact of the matter is he has given us plenty of good quips to discuss.
I thought it would be fun to look at a few every month, vote for your favorite, and discuss any you find good/bad in the comments section. Here it goes.
