Sports & satire
Die-hard Detroit sports fan and University of Michigan grad; moved to Los Angeles in 2012 to work in film. Favorite sports memories are of the Steve Yzerman-led Red Wings of the late '90s and early 2000's. Firm believer that someday the world will hear the Lions' roar and can't wait for the moment when Miggy and the Tigers finally hoist that World Series trophy.
Just a guy rambling on about sports like all the other folks in the media.
