Myself....I would be off on a mad dash to Vegas....and being a sports trivia nut, would somehow pick all the sports teams to win their championships (yeah Audio....I know, the Celts won in 62) I would pick the league MVP's and all that junk....after pocketing a million bucks, it would be off to Miami to hook up with my new partner, Don Aronow (would never go for a car ride with him) but I might slip in the idea of a stepped hull and counter rotation drives and see if I could straighten him out a bit.....ah, life would be fine....after that I would invest my money and buy the Lakers from Jack Kent Cooke. I would give Kreskin a run for his money!!!

Then I would open up my own stand up comedy routine in the late 60's.....and the D is for Dice Clay!!!!! Can you imagine Dice in the 60's??? Probably land me in jail!!!! Then to top it off, in 1998, I would open up a website on the net....OSO!!!!!!! Instead of the DMan, I would be the Board God!!!!!! The King Poodle would be bored out of his mind!!!!!!!!!

DMan...and the D is for Delerious!!

The first thing I would do is tell JFK to stay away from texas next year, then I would call Don and tell him to be careful who he deal's with in the upcoming years. Then I would find Mr. Fountain and give him a thousand dollars to help start a boat company.

Me and some friends would smuggle our guns on some flights that left Sept.11. Never bring a box cutter to a gun fight.

You guys have some cool responses. Myself, I would convince Ray Kroc of McDonalds that I would oversee, advise and contribute as a silent partner to all new openings in the Midwest, manuever for the sole rights to sell authentic NASCAR memorabelia in begining in the early 80's, and about that time purchase the rights to print Dale Earnhardt's and Micheal Jordan's signatures on official appearal, made sure politicians like LBJ did not sacrifice our boys in Vietnam and bought a brand new 62 427/4spd Vette. Oh yeah, a little QCOM stock in 1998 may not be a bad idea either....., just make sure you unload it by July 2000.....

One more, do something....anything to make sure Kenyon Martin does not break his leg in the 2000 Conference tourney, because then the Cincinnati Bearcats would have won the 2000 NCAA B-Ball title......

Too old, good one. but , 10 years waiting in a lawn chair sounds like what is now known as a trailer park. I would probly head to Key West to think about it and wait for Mel Fisher.

Hey D, just think, if you went back 40 yrs you would be back in the good old Delware county, I would meet up with you and kick you ass and take your grand, and when you would ask why I did it I would say because you became a LA Laker Fan!!! You traitor

And the D is for Don';t forget your roots....

Before I hoped in that thing I would stuff every Wallstreet Journal in there and Make sure I had the winning games for every lotery in Vegas. Once I hit vegas and had a good night with ALL the Perks I would be off to Boston to Buy the Celtics. Then it would be Me Against the D-Man. Mano a Mano CHUMP. Oh ya and this time I would make sure that when I drafted Leni Bias that he DID NOT GO OUT AND PARTY!!!!! Oh and I would also make sure we got Cobie and Shaq!!!! Then I would start a place called Blockbuster
Put your best foot forward!
