Brush with fame: Saw Stewart Scott in a bar in Louisville during the Derby.
Quote: "Unfortunately, I am a Cubs fan.  Note that I do not have a single full time Chicago Cub on my team.  I say 'fulltime' because Ayala was on the Cubs for half the season and Willie Greene did not play for the Cubs in '99.   Also note that I went to the BDBL World Series this year while the Chicago Cubs finished with the third worst record in baseball.  Baseball symmetry: catch it."
Fantasy baseball experience: Nine years of rotisserie, twelve years of Diamond Mind.
