The story you are about to read is about Dan Greco, a bushy-haired 23 year-old System Support Specialist from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. I actually met Dan about two years ago at a local car meet in Philly and we hit it off every since. Dan is by far one of the funniest and down-to-earth people I have had the privilege of meeting and our friendship has grown tremendously over time, from only seeing him occasionally at local car meets to seeing and talking to him almost everyday.
