When it came to whether or not I would be a sports fanatic, I really didn't have a choice in the matter. Not only was I born on Ewing Kauffman's (founder of the KC Royals) birthday, but it was also the day of the first game of Monday Night Football.

An avid soccer fan, I love Sporting KC and Liverpool FC. The first is easy. It's my local team. Having never been to England, one might wonder how I came to support Liverpool. One of my best friends is from Liverpool and he kind of rubbed off on me. All I knew was I wasn't going to support Manchester United (the NY Yankees of the Barclay's Premier League).

    Just read your bit about the media game...very cool!

    Any chance you know a Sporting KC scout by the name of Matt Martin? He was scouting West Virginia defender Eric Schoenle (among others) while I was covering them for the WVU student paper, The Daily Athenaeum.

    If you don't know him, he's a great guy and was kind enough to give me his insight for a piece I did on Schoenle.

    Well, good luck in the media match. Awesome opportunity!

    Very cool to see a man from KC on here! I used to live in KC, so I'll be rooting for you in your media game!
