Hey ladies and gents, I'm Ryan Hader. I'm a 22-year-old graduate of the University of Dayton. I'd have to say that two things have consumed my life: Dave Matthews Band and sports. Hell, as you read this, there's a 94 percent chance I'm listening to Dave. If I lost you as a fan there already, then I must say we probably wouldn't get along.
I'm from Cincinnati, so naturally I'm accustomed to losing, losers, losses, and everything in between. But I still love my teams dearly. But I know my death will be the result of one of those teams; I've accepted that. So I might as well tell you a few things about me that will convince you to read my stuff.
I'm left handed. I hate birdbaths. I thought Celine Dion was black when that Titanic song came out. Buffet lines scare the hell out of me. I have man crushes on Tim Tebow, Michael Phelps, and Gus Johnson. I love soccer (get over it). And, finally, I'm from Ohio and hate Ohio State.
Now that I'm probably down to one reader, I just want to say I'm excited about this site. I'll do my best to share my thoughtful, pensive insights with you while trying not to completely hack you off.
Any questions, comments, praise, or adulation, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Any criticism, hate messages, or threats, send to someone else.
Is Panthers running back DeAngelo Williams becoming a serious threat to opposing teams and following the footsteps of Eagles star Brian Westbrook? Let me know what you think!
I thought you would enjoy this piece I wrote about McNabb's performance against the Cardinals after being in the hot seat for the last two weeks. Let me know what you think!
