Glenn noted in the current podcast that of the four Dandy Scotch Brawlers, I am the least, shall we say, nerdy. This is a charge (compliment?) I cannot deny.
As was discussed in the podcast, I have not seen any of the “Alien” movies. Nor, for that matter, do I own a single video game or play online games. I have never read “X-Men,” or any other comic book. And until Rob lent me his copy of “Watchmen” a few months ago, I had never read a graphic novel.
All of this, however, is not to say that I have no history of nerd behavior. And as the Dandy Scotch Brawlers podcast has thus far seemed to center on things nerd, I feel the need to establish my nerd bona fides, such as they are. To wit, I give you a small sampling of the complete set “Star Trek: The Next Generation” cards that I amassed, as I recall, over the course of my seventh or eighth grade year in the early 90s:
See, I am one of you. My name is Will and I am, or at least was, a nerd.
