Judge Bill Gibron
• Location: Tampa, FL
Judge Bill Gibron, 41, is a resident of the State of Hell known as Florida, having been hoodwinked into moving there with the promise of a brand new 1976 Chevrolet Monte Carlo and the chance to get sunstroke.
The son of a pseudo sports celebrity, Bill's youth in Chicago was filled with trips to the Shed Aquarium and many a Sunday freezing his cajones off on the sidelines of Soldier's Field. He even witnessed the filming of the classic TV weeper Brian's Song, and still can't think of the line "Piccolo, you bone-headed spaghetti eater" without first having to call his therapist.
Bill attended Florida State University before it was a football powerhouse or the nation's number one party school. It was there that Bill stumbled upon his love of reading and writing, having been more or less illiterate up until then.
Bill attended law school and became a Doctor of Jurisprudence. He then actually practiced law and saw his ethical and moral foundation go straight down the toilet. Discovering that the real money was in the action packed world of competitive high school speech and debate, he became a coach 12 years ago. He was surprised to find that it didn't really resemble the film Listen to Me at all.
Recently, Bill has become obsessed with the exploitation films of the '30s-'70s and thinks Herschell Gordon Lewis and Rudy Ray Moore are geniuses. He also does a pretty mean imitation of Dave Friedman talking about Dan Sonney. He blames his wife of 17 years, Angela, for all of this.
Bill is also the only person he knows that will admit to including 2001: A Space Odyssey, Miller's Crossing and Pink Flamingos on their list of the greatest films of all times.
Bill is not at all a well man.
