I'm a Chicago transplant from West Michigan. I've been enamored with sports ever since a Sunday afternoon in 2nd grade. I was supposed to be taking the traditional "after-church nap" when I turned the TV on to a Baltimore Colts/Buffalo Bills game. Ever since then, if it's shown on ESPN, I'll watch it. Bass Fishing, baseball, badmitton, bowling, billiards....and those are just the B's. Played some college volleyball, which led to an Oak Forest, IL 6-on-6 Co-ed Beach Volleyball D-League Championship after which I announced an Elway-like retirement from the sport.
