Keith Overton Bio

Age: 35

Birthplace: Memphis, Tennessee

College: THE University of Memphis

College Degree: BBA (Management), MBA (IT)

Occupation: Webmaster / System Architect at a large Southern brokerage firm.

Current City: Memphis, Tennessee

Years Playing Fantasy Football: 16

Favorite thing about Fantasy Football: The social aspect of the game. Sure, FF is all about competition and the love of pro football, but at the end of the day, it's really about hanging out with your buddies (either in person or online) and talking trade, talking smack, talking football, and watching the games.

If you were Paul Tagliabue for a Day: I would put a team in Memphis through either relocation or expansion. After all the NFL expansion hoops we Memphians jumped through over the course of 20 years and all the second-tier leagues we have been host to in my lifetime, to have a team relocated to Nashville via a secret deal was the ultimate slap in the face. To have them spend a year playing in Memphis was even worse.

Something Odd/Different About You: I completed grad school before getting my first "real" job. My board handle, Memphis Foundry, comes from sage advice I received from my father following a tour of the International Harvester plant where he worked for 35 years: "Son, you need to stay in school and get a good education, or you might end up working in the foundry." I stayed in school until I was 25 years old.

A Brush with Greatness You've Had: Met future HOF RB Jerome Bettis at the Las Vegas airport this spring.

Favorite Movie/DVD: Network. Made in 1976, no other movie has been as prescient about the future of American television and the impact it has upon public opinion.

List Three CDs You Would Want If Stranded On a Deserted Island: Fizzy, Fuzzy, Big, and Buzzy - The Refreshments, I'll Sleep When I'm Dead (2 CD Anthology) - Warren Zevon, Blood on the Tracks - Bob Dylan

Marital/Children Status: Married with 2 teenage boys

Biggest Vice: Diet Coke. I drink about 100 oz. per day of the stuff.

Pet Peeve: Clockwatchers and people who are absolute slaves to their schedules.

Favorite Quote: "If I could start my life all over again, I would be a professional football player, and you'd damn well better believe I would be a Pittsburgh Steeler." -- Jack Lambert

Favorite NFL Team: Pittsburgh Steelers

Hobbies: Pro football and computers.

Dream Car: Lexus SC convertible (I'm driving my last dream car now, a 1991 Cadillac Allante' convertible)

Scarface or Goodfellas? Goodfellas. Sometimes when there are a thousand things going on, I know exactly how Henry Hill felt when he was trying to keep one eye on the sauce and one eye on the helicopters.

Rather Sleep At or On Top of Paris Hilton? After seeing the full-length video, "somewhere in the vicinity of" her would be just fine with me.

List the people you'd invite to dinner: I kept it to 10...

Gen. George S. Patton
Terry Bradshaw
Paddy Chavefsky
Harlan Ellison
Dennis Miller
Ian Anderson (of Jethro Tull)

Paper or plastic? Plastic

Air it out or grind it out? Grind it out

Who let the dogs out? *Cringe*
