The New Kid on the Block

New, comments

Well VanRam was looking for some help contributing to the TST, and alas here I come to save the day, cape and all.

As you all experience the cabin fever of the NFL off-season, barely tolerating the itching urge to fire up your grills for a tailgate and bust out your blue and gold face paint, I hope to provide some solace in the coming months and perhaps a little insight into NFL matters.  While I'll mostly be providing links to the latest stories and commentary until the NFL season starts, I'm also a statistics nerd and will be doggy-paddling through the sea of numbers in search of an interesting story or two of my own for you.

When I'm not writing on here from my outpost in Washington DC (born and raised in St. Louis, however), ending world poverty, or slaying dragons, I tend to do the following:

  • Play water polo.  I played Division I for my first two years of college and now play on a master's team.  Most of you probably don't know what water polo is, but it can be summarized in 5 words: hairy men wrestling in Speedos.
  • Argue politics/philosophy.  I currently live in Washington, DC.  If you don't follow politics here, there's not much to talk about.  Oh yeah, besides this guy.
  • Listen to music.  I love all types of music, so send me anything good and I will definitely take a listen.  I'll even listen to the reggae-metal-pop demo you made on your cell phone's voice recorder in your mom's basement.

As the young gun on the TST, I've still got [some] optimism about our boys on the Rams that many of you jaded veterans lost sometime between 2007 and 2010.  I am very excited to be provided the opportunity to write for you all and I hope you enjoy my contributions.  Let me know if there is anything of particular interest to you as well and I'll try to cover it.  If you want to find out more about me, feel free to follow me onTwitter or Facebook.

Huddle around the fire for some good discussion, rally, and fight the good fight! Go Rams!
