At this point, I’d be tempted to call the public’s infatuation with Mike Rowe borderline fanatical were it not just so well-deserved. The guy gets it. He’s one of the few celebrities who, during a time when many of his peers are using their fame as a platform to reinforce divisions between left and right, manages to garner respect and adoration from folks across the political spectrum. Whatever his politics may be, he’s an American first. A patriot through and through.
Benjamin Franklin nailed it when he said, "Fatigue is the best pillow." True story, Benny. There's nothing like pushing your body so far past exhaustion that you'd willingly, even longingly, take a nap on a concrete slab.
