If I found Darius Fooberman on Facebook I’d hesitate friending him.

A garish bully during my bantam years, Darius stood nearly six feet without skates.  With gear bag in tow his knuckles dragged as he walked into the arena.  The oaf knocked over chairs and small kids sitting on them.   Mrs. Fooberman, a square jawed bow-legged woman was shaped like a bowling pin and sported a bee-hive hairdo.  She screeched to her boy, “Darius!  You knocked over a kid.  Pick up that brat!”  … Continue Reading
