Who am I?

I'm a 39 year old cubicle jockey in Northern New Jersey with a beautiful wife, two cats, and too many student loan bills to have the job I hold. I write Harry Potter and Daria Fan-Fiction as a hobby.

Likes and dislikes:

I follow sports – a lot. I root for evil empires: New York Yankees, Los Angeles Galaxy and The University of Southern California Trojans (MBA '05. No bandwagoning here) primarily. I generally dislike teams that come from nowhere – crazy bunches of kids that no one gave a chance who might just win the championship and maybe a few hearts along the way. You can beat your Rally Monkeys to death with your Bloody Socks and I'd be just fine. The 2007 New York Football Giants are a notable exception to this rule.

In addition to sports, I love cooking, poker and crab fishing, as long as I'm watching it on TV from the comfort of my La-Z-Boy. So if Bourdain, Iron Chef or Deadliest Catch is on, I'm probably watching it. If it's Saturday, I'm probably watching soccer. And if you're an American sports fan denigrating the Beautiful Game or a non-American sports fan denigrating the way my countrymen play the Beautiful Game (or trying to get us to call it Football), I'm probably ignoring you and enjoying MLS soccer anyway.
