About

David Aldridge is a passionate fan who grew up following two of the greatest leagues in sports - SEC Football & ACC Basketball. He is a graduate of the University of Georgia and laughs at anyone who doesn't think Herschel Walker is the greatest college football player of all time. David has also been a die hard fan of Duke Basketball since the early 1990's, when Coach K and the Blue Devils flopped their way into his heart.

During his playing days, David perfected his role on his basketball team as being the guy who would hold everyone on the bench back after a teammate would make a clutch shot.

He once played N.C. State legend David Thompson in a game of H-O-R-S-E. David won.

David's website, www.FromBallparkstoBBQ.com, features articles about sports and his adventures in the culinary world. He currently lives in Roanoke, Virginia with his wife and Herschel, their pet hedgehog.

    Whatsup David! Question, what do you hear about Duke's chances of getting Myles Turner? I'm hearing rumblings on the web that Duke is very much still in contention. Do you think we have a shot or am I just being greedy at this point?

    You are pretty awesome yourself. I always have an opinion and this site has become a sounding board for me. I'm surprised so many people agree with me.

    Unfortunately, I'm back in the US now. Have been since January (but forgot to update my location on my profile). But yeah, while I was in South Africa I streamed them illegally to a recording device that basically looked like winamp. Then I could re-watch at my leisure with the ability to fast forward and rewind. Pretty sweat set up, although probably not entirely legal.

    I just wanted to say that I'm really impressed with you internet presence. Your BBQ website is really well put together and you are spread out across social media. I wish I had that kind of digital savvy.

    Thanks for the props. I look forward to what you have to say during the baseball season, seeing as we are both Braves fans.
