I'm a lifelong Orange addict. Grew up in the shadow of Dome-dom in Binghamton NY, went to school at 'Cuse, and thusly upgraded my addiction to a lifestyle that often flummoxes others.

Rooting for this school's athletics will be the cause of my death, or my commitment to an institution of mental rehabilitation.

To paraphrase Jay-Z: This isn't the life I chose, but rather the life that chose me.
