Birthplace: Belleville, NJ (Suburb of Newark)
Colleges: Montclair State University
College Degree: Sociology
Occupation: One of the original Footballguys news reporters (we will
all go down in history, like the Four Horsemen and Murderers Row).
Current City: Belleville, NJ
Years Playing Fantasy Football: This is my 9th season, but didn't really
start playing the right way until discovering Footballguys.
Favorite things about Fantasy Football: The fact that it induces heart
attacks over Tai Streets dropping a 9-yard pass. Oh, and draft day needs to
be made a national holiday.
If you were Paul Tagliabue for a Day: I'd ban Eli Manning for life for
violating the substance abuse policy, whether he tested positive or not. Jerk.
Something Odd/Different About You: I've never been drunk.
A Brush with Greatness You've Had: I met Al Roker on a line at the Bronx
Zoo buying a creamsicle. Pre-gastric bypass, of course. Wasn't as friendly as
I expected, either. I met Darryl Strawberry during his heyday, and Lawrence
Taylor brushed off my friends and I during a class trip to Giants Stadium in
Favorite Movies/DVDs: Field of Dreams, Ocean's Eleven, The Godfather
I and II, The Rock, Office Space, A Bronx Tale, Dumb and Dumber, Crippled Masters
Midnight Run...I'd keep going but I assume there is a space limit. Favorite
football movie all-time is Remember the Titans (with an honorable mention to
Pacino's locker room "One inch" speech in Any Given Sunday).
List Three CDs You Would Want If Stranded On a Deserted Island: You
Would Want If Stranded On a Deserted Island: I'd go with a greatest hits that
wouldn't get old...Beach Boys. I'd also bring along my own compilation of 80's
hits. Finally, I would take along the Rocky IV soundtrack. All I'd need to do
is listen to it once, and I'd be inspired to swim back home. Or, if I was unable
to leave, at least I'd become diesel by lifting up wheelbarrows full of koala
bears and stuff.
Marital/Children Status: Unmarried but in a 4-year relationship, no
Biggest Vice: Making sure my rosters are completely updated as of opening
day and not just as of July in each new Madden.
Pet Peeve: When people incorrectly use the term ironic. What they mean
is coincidental. Oh, and I also hate Stuart Scott, but I just assume that's
Favorite Quote: "Show me a good loser and I'll show you a loser."
- George M. Steinbrenner III
Favorite NFL Team: They're not really what you'd call a "team",
but the San Diego Chargers.
Hobbies: I'd list fantasy football but we crossed over that hobby/obsession
line long ago. Now, I'd say playing poker, and playing Madden/MVP baseball on
the PS2 rank up there as high as anything. Also a fantasy baseball fiend.
Dream Car: Not really into cars much, but I've always liked Mustang
Scarface or Goodfellas: Gotta go with Goodfellas here.
Rather sleep at or on top of Paris Hilton? If I'm sleeping on top of
Paris Hilton, I'm making sure there are about two dozen sheets between us...who
knows where she's been? Oh wait, we all know where she's been.
People I'd invite to dinner? Hugh Hefner, Michael Kay, George Steinbrenner,
Bill Simmons, Ted Williams' head, Mandy Moore, Conan O'Brien, Will Ferrell,
Glen Quagmire, Brooke Burke
