Born in Kansas, raised  and curently residingin Florida, with stops in California, North Carolina, & Massachusetts in between. I was raised in a football family, with vivid memories of watching Super Bowl XX at age 5 and a "Rainman-like" memory of every one since. My father was always a coach, his father taught me how to watch and love the game, and my other grandfather taught me how to pick the winners. I also played contact football for 10 seasons, including Pop Warner, High School, & the Marine Corps. Five of those teams won conference championships or better, and only once did I experience a losing season; playing games at every position except for O-Line & Defensive Tackle. My lack of size and talent coupled with one too many earhole hits led me to a six year tour in the Marine Corps instead of post-scholastic football glory.
