Fischer’s Friday Five

Unfortunately I have a previous scheduled conflict (March Madness), so I’ve invited a guest blogger this week. You know him better as….uh….well, you probably don’t know him. His name is Adam Kramer, he’s a co-worker of mine, and an avid fan of the blog and all things Don Johnson related. Take it away Kramer….

(EDITOR’S NOTE: How can you forget Dexy’s Midnight Runner? Come on Kramer!) In any event, all of this leads to my Kramerica’s Five Favorites aka The Fischer Friday Five that Jarrett was too lazy to do. (EDITOR’S NOTE AGAIN: He’s right, I chose basketball over blogging, plus I was really tired from that K. State/Xavier game).
