I grow mustaches for fun. I love to watch, used to play. Now I love to write about sports.
My only permanent allegiance is with the Detroit Red Wings, Tottenham Hotspur, Virginia Tech Hokies, and, sigh, Baltimore Orioles. I typically like players more than teams and free agency means that sometimes my favorite team changes with the birth of a ridiculous free agent contract. (See Barry Zito)
Or in the case of my all time favorite, Steve Yzerman, they become the General Manager of a team that I now have to become a fan of based solely on Yzerman's awesomeness and the residual awesomeness that he will ultimately bestow upon them.

Virtual high five right back at you good sir. Hope you're having a good week Rob.
Oh come now Rob, how can you not watch the movies??? I know Joshua Jackson was in Dawson's Creek, but DiCaprio was in Titanic and it doesn't change how badass he is in The Departed!
Thanks for the compliments, man. Hope all is well with you.
I just wanted to stop by and let you know that that "Most Outrageous" article you wrote is fantastic. One of the better pieces I've seen on B/R.
No kidding, eh? Was running through my house like a kid on Christmas morning when I found out haha. Finally some hockey to write about. Arriving just in time too, as the NFL playoffs will almost be over when hockey starts!
Thanks man. It's definitely nice to be a featured columnist now. And hope the Ravens get healthy and play some consistent football this postseason. I'm not overly optimistic, but hey, at least expectations are low this time around. Hoping to see some hockey in the next few weeks though. It'd be a nice late Christmas present :P
Hey Rob, just wanted to say great job on your Ravens coverage this season. Looks like both of us hockey guys found something to write about during the lockout. On a hockey-related note, you think this new proposal will result in a season?
Good Day Mr. Kirk,
Though it pains me to credit someone associated with Red Wings, (I am a diehard Blackhawks fan), your quote on the softness of the Sedin Twins is legendary in my book. "Canuck fan, I think your twins are fantastically talented. They are two of the five best players in the league, arguably. But they are softer than a Kenny G. Holiday album wrapped in tissue paper and served up with a kitten-themed gift bag." I used to think Grantland Rice's quote regarding the Four Horseman of Notre Dame as the best sports quote of all time, but your Sedin Twins description is priceless. Needless to say, the Canucks have become despised by the Blackhawk faithful. We respect the Red Wings and their organization, though we loathe them, but the Canucks are a totally different story. I have been collecting, and documenting sports quotes, and your quote has made my top ten all-time. Great Job!
"I love to watch, used to play" Just about sums up my life Rob.
Jean-Marie Pfaff? Really?!! he's a village idiot!! haha
Thanks for fanning me. Seems like tough offseason for Wings. Bruins fans here...
