University of Nebraska Alum - '87. Nebraska native from Curtis, Nebraska (South of North Platte)

Other than the NFL, I really don't follow pro sports. There's too much about contracts and selling player personalities and not enough about the sport in professional sports, and I get bored with that very quickly.

I have about 20 years of publishing (print media) experience, with 18 in the computer industry. 2011 will be the sixth season for Corn Nation.
