Northern California native and A's fan since birth. Cursed to be surrounded by idiot Giants fans for eternity, I've developed a baseball chip on my shoulder and a superiority complex over all non-A's fans.
I've tried in vain to get my wife into A's baseball but she's grown weary of their futility over the last few years. I wish we had met in 2001 (of course then we would've been in high school). My little daughter was just born in January, and I think I'll be able to win her over, even with the black hole of suckitude that A's baseball has become.
