I was born and raised in Spartanburg, South Carolina. I went to the College of Charleston (BA Philosophy) and then the University of Sussex (MA Political and Social Thought).
All my life I have been a fan of Duke football and basketball and the Atlanta Braves. Growing up watching Wofford College football I'm a huge fan of the wishbone offense and other historical relics. I prefer college sports to the pros.
In college, I learned to love rugby, which I played because it was easier than starting a Fight Club. In international rugby I follow South Africa (where I currently live) and Wales (where my ancestors are from), while in the Super 15 I support the Stormers.
During college I also discovered the EPL and now I have the misfortune of being a fan of a forever rebuilding Liverpool.
Breakdown NBA potential for the Blue Devils!
Thanks for the compliments and for checking out From Ballparks to BBQ. It's been a long process but I finally know enough about what I'm doing for it to look presentable.
I'm very impressed with your ability to write about Duke while being in South Africa. Do you watch games in the middle of the night? And are you having to use bootleg sites in order to see the games?
Thanks for the props on the story about Amile. I always look forward to reading your articles and the great insight you provide!
Hey Dantzler! Thanks for becoming a fan! I won't hate because you're a Duke fan (I grew up a Maryland fan and went to Georgia Tech). Let me know if you need anything, buddy
Okay, so before you ask, no I'm not psychic :P. The fact that I missed the predicted score by 4 points made me question that, however haha.
Thanks for the comment and I've enjoyed reading your articles about Duke. Very cool that you live in Cape Town - my wife and I spent 3 months in South Africa a couple years ago and our time in Cape Town was amazing.
Haha thanks man. Yeah, I'm in the process of becoming a featured columnist for the Leafs, despite the fact that there's probably not going to be a season. Frustrating to have the sport you love and your favorite sports team of all time not play 2 in 8 years. Hopefully they will get back soon.
Great having you aboard at BR man, I thoroughly enjoy your articles on the Blue Devils man. Always well thought out and bring things to the forefront that I hadn't been thinking of. Look forward to more articles this season!
