Hola! No, this is not the real Fernando Vina (the complete sentence should've been your first clue). I am far from him, to be honest. But I am an avid supporter of the boys in blue. I live in lovely, small town mid-Missouri, smack dab between Mizzou and KC. Sports have always been my passion. I have played or coached every year since T-ball (Gold Team rocked!).

I was in kindergarten when the Royals won it all.....and now I teach middle school math. Every day I do my best to convert/open the eyes of the unfortunate and misguided Cardinals fans that enter my classroom. Some days are better than others.

A Fan Of...

  • MLB Kansas City Royals
