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. ;)
No problem! Thanks for a great story!
Would love the chance to talk to you about covering the Redskins for us. If you, shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can discuss further.
Sorry Aidan, thought I'd replied to this long ago. Yeah, don't you just hate those silly, know-it-all, i'll-highlight-that-word-as-incorrect-even-though-it's-just-an-alternative-spelling spellchecks?!

A pleasure as always, Aidan.
No worries, Aidan. That's what I'm here for!
Hey, I recently commented, on your article '5 Footballers We Would Love To Be For A Day'. Please do reply to it. I have read your other articles and liked them all very much...
However, a particular statement about Ronaldo in your article irked me. You seem to imply that Ronaldo is someone who plays the game for his own selfish purposes- that he would put his own needs before those of his team or teammates. I find that ridiculous and absurd.
If I have simply misunderstood the line, then I wholly apologize, I will remove the comment without any further ado. Once again, please do reply.
