    Joel had a “Big Piimpin'” stage for a while there. The rerason I remeber that is because on the ride down to Phoenix this morning I heard that song, Big Pimpin’.

    Where to begin? Couple of my favorites are…
    -“Flagstaff Style”
    -“Smooth Joel” in Syracuse, Kansas

    ‘The Yates Factor’, Joel Claims this is why the CSU mechanical team won first in Reno…. I am still skeptical that was the reason…

    “That’s glorious,” was a Joel-ism I loved. He would always say “glorious” to everything, so much after he’d leave I would find myself saying glorious.

    “Glorious” came out the same time as the “b-i-g p-i-m-p-i-n’ ” stage.

    “That’s glorious,” was a joel-ism I always loved. He would say “glorious” to everything so much after he’d leave glorious would sneak into my daily vocabulary.

    FYI — “glorious” came out the same time as the “b-i-g p-i-m-p-i-n’” stage.

    On beautiful, meandering hikes he would claim to be “Getting my zen on”.

    I seem to remember when “trophy husband” popped up, though I’m not sure if it was assigned or claimed – maybe both.

    “How’s your old lady.” to this day I’m totally sure if he knows my wifes name.

    Not sure if Bryan or Joel started this, but Joel was especially good at going, “I’m an F…B….I…. agent”….uttered with a hazy stoner delivery ala Keanu Reeves in the wonderful move, ‘Point Break’.
