About

My favourite sport is the one that's in season.

When I was six, someone brought me a Redskins sweater back from Washington and I've been a fan ever since.

After that, I did the 'normal' English thing and chose an English football team to support. My home team is Norwich so they were the natural choice. In 2010 I moved to Newcastle upon Tyne and developed a real affection for Newcastle United and the city in general.

My dedication to the D.C. teams continues through basketball and baseball. The Wizards build up my hopes then smash them to pieces seemingly with every game, while the empty seats at Nationals Park make me crazy as I sit in another country.

I'm also completely in love with cricket. Robin Smith was my first sporting hero. That square cut was immense.

I studied Media Communications at the University of Lincoln, specialising in Journalism and Popular Culture.

You can follow me on Twitter, where I'll most likely be mouthing off about the things in the world that annoy me. Which is a lot of things.

I also write for Drowned in Sound and run music site Quiet Terror News, which can be found here: www.QuietTerrorNews.sqsp.com

    Hi, Aidan! You are welcome! Yes, this is 12 days late, somehow I missed your note on my wall (and I don't seem to get notified per email anymore). Embarrassing, really. ;)

    I do.
