About

I am an old man now, but I still have a passion for sports. In high school, I ran track, cross country and wrestled. I continued wrestling in college at South Dakota State. Over the years my trunk has always been filled with soccer balls, softball gear, tennis rackets, etc. When my kids were growing up, they started playing soccer, so I started coaching. My daughter fired me from that, my son tried. I coached soccer for 10 years, including assistant on an Under 19 year old soccer club team in California. I am out of coaching, so I have been playing soccer on pick up teams at work even though I turned 50 last year. The ankles and knee hurt, but I still enjoy it immensely. My favorite sport to watch is the NFL, and my team has been the Green Bay Packers since I was 10. I have seen the Packers play in Anahiem, San Diego, Phoenix, New Orleans, and Green Bay.

As work goes, I am an electrical engineer. After getting my undergradute degree, I worked at the Nevada Test Site. Then I moved to Orange County in Southern California and have been here for over 24 years. I got my masters degree from USC. My job is involved in communications design and development. I have written many technical papers and documents, most of which get into boring details of intricacies of passing bits and bytes from one computer to another. Received seven patents.

I enjoy reading science fiction and fantasy books. After reading the final Harry Potter book, I thought there should be more to the story, so I wrote my own Book 8, 'Harry Potter and the New Order.' After the Brett Favre trade to the NY Jets, I started blogging for the first time. I had seen the Bleacher Report previously, but now I comment here regularly on the NFL.

    Also, Vikings special teams really cost em the game too. I am a die-hard Packers fan, and I HATE teh Vikings, but I am also honest. . .and thats at least what I got outta watching both games.

    Yeah they lost, but I believe that was APs fault. I really believe Favre should get the win this week. He carried that team as far as they could go in the second half, and didnt have much help in the first half.

    Can you change the titles of these to 'Favre Versus Rodgers II' so that they are easier to find on google (vs last years' articles), as David had done?
