University of Oregon journalism student fortunate enough to grow up in a region of the United States that is unparalleled in its sports' futility. Twenty one years born and raised in Portland, Oregon and all I have to show for it are a few tantalizing whifs of champaign and cigar smoke and a whole bucket full of the salty tears of heartbreak and failure -- all thanks to the BCS, the Los Angeles Lakers, Ben Roethlisberger and a couple no good cheating zebras.

I love: Phil Knight, Brandon Roy, the Pritchslap, night games at Autzen Stadium, big league baseball in Portland

I can't stand: Fuskies (except B-Roy), John Canzano, the Stoops', Red Sox Nation, Bill Bavasi and the entire Seattle Mariners organization (except Felix)

    thanks Alex, appreciate the feedback, and yeah I have a tendency to run on a bit, I always to go back "re-write", restructuring things, but I often miss some.

    Thanks again, nice job, Craig

    Thanks for the edits! Just a clarification, my use of the pronoun "we" is deliberate, but the point isn't driven across accurately enough. I find identifying with sports teams so personally as to feel connected with its success or failure an interesting and someone pathetic behavior and I try to emulate it for comedic effect. I think I need to use it less often, however, since that is clearly not being displayed effectively. I'll limit it's use in the future.
