Born and raised in Chicago, been everywhere from the Artic to the Desert.
40-something Notre Dame fan, White Sox, Cubs, Bears, Black Hawks, Bulls fan in that order.
Now living in Columbus, OH with my talented and lovely wife.
It should be noted I am Old School, Jurrasic. Pre-Columbian.
I am against: College Football playoffs, The designated hitter, Astro-turf, Domed stadiums, Steroids, Expanded rosters in MLB, 3 divisions/Lg in MLB, The three-point shot, Instant Replay(in any sport), the clock-continuing for out of bounds plays in College football-thus shortening games, I am against GM-Manager hybrids, Hockey teams in the Sonoran Desert, the term "American Football"-soccer is one term-Football is another, I am against pampering QBs and ticky-tack skinny guy Pass Interefernce calls, I never liked in-the-grasp, I don't like prima donna WRs who duck out of bounds, I want more offensive charging calls in basketball, I don't like free agency-Magglio Ordonez should have stayed on the White Sox forever(he's rich, who cares whether he likes it or not?), I am against hunting-poaching-fishing in National Parks, and I want more lingering camera shots on the cheerleaders at football games.
I read your bio on what you dislike. I think we would get along just fine.
Thanks for reading, Kirk! Here's to hoping I see the Cubs win a title in my lifetime.
Thanks for liking my article.
Kirk... I feel as though I owe you a personal apology!
What was that?
At least USC was at times physically dominant... but again... TURNOVERS!
And did you like the helmets?
I thought they looked like gold spray-painted tin foil.
At any rate... you were right.
Do you remember the comment you wrote on my article about ND?
I wrote the following back to you:
This week I like: Temple getting 7.5 over Penn State, Iowa State getting 4.5 over UConn, Duke getting 7 over Bost Coll, Florida giving 9.5 over Tenn, Okla giving 3 over FSU, and Miami giving 3 over Ohio St.
Six for six! not too shabby if I may blow my on horn. Unfortunately I'm not a gambler.

As the sports world breaks the news of the Mike Leach firing, I came up with an interesting idea. Would an NFL team be interesting in making him their offensive coordinator. See what reasoning I came up with as to why it makes sense. Appreciate any feedback!
Now that the offense is done, it is time for the defense :
Have you seen ISU's post-game celebration?
This is what makes this game so special:http://bleacherreport.com/articles/280262-iowa-states-post-game-celebration-reminds-us-why-we-love-this-game
