Hey! It’s springtime now, right? Right? Shit, the only sign of spring I’m seeing here is the potholes in the roads. Yes, kids, Michigan’s roads are every bit as bad as you’ve heard they are, but nationally, they’re not even in the bottom ten. I find that hard to believe – one of the roads I’m often on has a section that’s essentially impassible. Fucking right lane had more potholes than road surface, plus it was flooded, so you couldn’t see it until it was too late. Thank God I was in my Crown Vic – the cop tires, cop suspension, and cop shocks really saved my ass. After only a week, it’s in the running for best car I’ve ever owned. Speaking of bad roads, the state of Hawaii, believe it or not, is in the bottom five among the worst roads in the U.S. Still sounds like a pretty nice place to get away from this extended winter. Maybe I can’t go there right now, but I can take all of you there with a Top 10 flashback!
