First post nonsense

Ok, I'm 24, I'm in Milwaukee, WI. I lived in New Orleans for 6 years and my heart is still there. I have a journalism and spanish degree that I'm not at all using. I miss writing and I miss covering sports.

I'm a big University of Wisconsin fan - football, hockey and men's bball, in descending order of importance. I also keep up with LSU football, since my school didn't have NCAA athletics. Marquette and UWM basketball are also on the radar.

Clearly, I'm also a big Green Bay Packer fan. Can't be born here and avoid it!

I'll watch a college game before a pro game any day of the week. I'll watch hours of college basketball and never turn on an NBA game. I'll attend any college football game, but I'm always going to contend that nothing compares to a Wisconsin student section. I can (and do) watch any college football game that's being aired.
I've played soccer since I was 4. I played NAIA soccer in college, but that doesn't really count, as most people don't even know what the NAIA is.
Fox Soccer Channel is always on my TV, but I don't necessarily have a favorite EPL team. I just love to watch the game.

Bowling, Croquet, Badminton, Curling and Wiffle Ball are underrated sports.

Cute sports are those that don't get mainstream love, those that you can play while drinking (and really wouldn't play if you weren't). My life goal is to actually start the magazine from "Dodgeball" : Obscure Sports Quarterly. I actually wrote a column about such sports, before the movie ever came along.

I suppose that's all you need to know from me. I'll link to lots of other sites, but you probably already read them. If you don't, you should. Check out: - Every Day Should Be Saturday, an excellent college football blog - Alabama fan (we'll forgive him) and Journalist - Everything Wisconsin hoops - LSU sports - Michigan ... well written and we have to know what the enemy is about - Not updated recently, but good LSU coverage - Fabulous links and good information

So there's the intro ... onto to some Bowl Week goodness
