Crème de la crème with Jacques Rimmier: Bonjour, I'm Back!

After a two month hiatus, I have returned to this lovely state of Michigan.  Right before the end of the Township Series, I flew home to visit my Papa in France after he was checked into the local hospital..  I thought that my visit would be well received, but I was incorrect!  My Papa loves his France and because of this, He turned me in on a warrant to the policea.  What was the warrant for you ask?

On my last trip to France in 2003 I was arrested for placing my genitals on the Eiffel Tower.  I spent 3 days in the pokey before my long time French lover Bernadena bailed me out.  This was when I moved to America. (Yep, I bail jumped!)

During my 2 months in the French Pen, my only connection to this side of the pond was though my friend (dare I say boy) Adam Nash.  During my time locked up awaiting my hearing, I was informed that I won the Columnist of the Year!  Much Jubilee as I lay with my bunk mate dreaming of the season to come. I can see it now, Jacques Rimmier’s Crème de la Crème, the only column that really matters! 

A couple days later, Adam informed me of the upcoming winter meetings and that I could possibly get my KWL lifetime ban removed and that I could possibly join Adam’s 09’ team.  What is the lifetime ban for? I will save that story for another day.  But I will tell you that it involves a Llama, a Cowboy, and Mike Raber.

McNashty cooked up a plan to spring me from my fall lock down and helped me work on my appeal letter to the league Commissioner.  Adam’s plan required full commitment and Danny Ocean type foolery.  The Planned work and before I knew it, I was on a supply ship on my way to New York City.  I am not sure if the sailor was a part of Adam’s plan, but it was my favorite part of the trip.

So now I am back on American Soil, two months tardy, but full of inspiration.  My winter goals are to stay warm and working with Adam to be re-instated for the 2009 season.  This may be my last chance at capturing the MVP trophy from the grasps of our lovely Commissioner Brian Meyers (anyone else think the end of year votes are rigged?)  I leave you now, but this Columnist of the Year will return again!
