I'm Ant and I live in the south... Actually let me clarify, I'm from Atlanta (and I don't mean 45 minutes outside of the city). Yes I'm a native ATL-ien. So in a sea of transports you know I support my Atlanta teams.

I love world football. I am a Atlanta Silverbacks supporter, Manchester United fan and a casual Norwich City fan. I believe the EPL is the best football league in the world. Even if Bayern is the best team in the world. Give me any player in the world to start a team with and I will pick Rooney over Messi or Ronaldo. I have a major love/hate relationship with the MLS. Not because its a bad league but because they have left out an entire part of the country. Sorry if the closest team is in DC then I can pick whoever. I blame the south's obsession with football.

Speaking of... I consider myself a college fan who loves their alma mater. I am a True Blue Georgia Southern Eagle! The time for being a fan of other schools has passed. I mean I'm still going to watch SEC football but mostly... HAIL SOUTHERN!!!!!

I think auto-racing is my next favorite sport. Formula 1 obviously rules the roost here. We're all lucky enough to be living through a golden age with Vettle. Rallycross, Indy, Drift,and Rally are all next. Then there is all the other auto racing with NASCAR at the bottom of the list. Mostly I like seeing actual production cars and the closer to that the better... well except for F1.

Also Georgia Southern University is the real GSU.

So before you ask I don't like baseball. But I will make it out to a Braves game once a year if only for nostalgia sake or easy access to a Holeman & Finch burger. The were the best part of my childhood sports experience... I have some suggestions on how to make it better but still not blernsball :-/ First lets chop off 62 games. And while we are cutting things lets end the game at 6 innings at which point if the game is tied it goes to a HR Derby using aluminum bats.

More to come...

    Thanks for reading and commenting. I rushed through the Georgia Southern portion and changed it to reflect a more accurate description of that game. How in the hell did App State hold you all to 135 yards rushing?
