"Raised in a house full of Eagles fans, I escaped a life of heartbreak and
sorrow, a life without Lombardi trophies. When I realized my home state of
Pennsylvania had a second team, a successful team, I rebelled against the
household and started rooting for the Steelers. It wasn't until after high
school that I became a true fanatic though. There was something about
working for a living and sitting down Sunday afternoon to watch the game
that just gripped me. I've been a die hard fan ever since and I never miss
a down. I follow the NFL as a whole just as closely as I follow the
Steelers, I just can't get enough of this game, the greatest in the world!
On the personal side, I'm 27 years old, born and raised in small town
Campbelltown, PA and I currently live in Hershey, the "sweetest place on earth"
I'm told. By day I'm a salesman working in the Industrial Distribution field,
by night I'm the guitar player in an original hard rock band named "Day Taunt"
and that commands much of my time when I'm not glued to the NFL network or one
of the many message boards out there today." .
