You can call me Joe
I don't know where it comes from but I get called "Dr. Friel" a lot. I don't have a PhD or an MD or any other D's behind my name. But even more common is for athletes to call me "Joel." I suspect that comes from having an "L" on the end of my last name. Watch the posted comments on this blog and you will see "Joel" appear occasionally. Not a big deal. Just a minor nuisance in grand scheme. You can call me "Joe."
