Favorite FF smack talk: You do know that the idea is to score as many points as possible?
Years writing about fantasy football: Two. Started in 2014 writing about both College and NFL fantasy.
Favorite FBG feature: Hard to name just one. Daily Email updates are a phenomenal resource for staying on top of NFL news. Weekly projections are fantastic and a great tool for figuring out the weeks puzzle. Training camp reports are hands down the best in the business for all the news you need to know in the preseason.
Organized football experience: None, but I have been known for explosive short bursts of speed from time to time
Favorite NFL team: New York Jets
Favorite college team: Notre Dame Fighting Irish
Favorite fan moment: Anticipation of the AFC title games in 2009 and 2010. Great wins by the Jets in the Divisional Round both years led to great anticipation. Unfortunately didn't pan out, but it was a fun ride.
Favorite player of all time: Currently, Eli Manning. Love the humble, unassuming nature that comes up huge in big spots. All-time leans towards Wayne Chrebet, always a big fan of tough little receivers
NFL rule(s) I would change if I could: Change Pass Interference to 15 yards
Favorite movie(s): Goodfellas, Scarface, Braveheart, 300, It's a Wonderful Life, Blues Brothers, Anchorman, Old School, Monsters Inc., Elf
Favorite musical genres/albums/artists: All over the map, depends on mood. I can go from Sinatra and Big Band all the way to today and find something cool in each decade along the way.
What I read: Quality content for NFL and the other major sports, both fantasy related and non-fantasy. Always fascinated by a good entrepreneur bio or interesting self-improvement things.
Hobbies: Following my kids sporting pursuits, Cooking, Finding solutions to things I want to solve, DFS, Day/overnight trips
Favorite TV show(s): Gotham, Empire, Flash, Arrow and Downton Abbey currently. Big Cheers and Seinfeld fan back in the day.

Quote: Figure out what you want and go out and get it.
Parting thoughts: Life is too short, but it's also really simple if you allow it to be. Keep your family and friends close, follow your heart and always pay it forward.
