Name's Chris White, you can call me UZ. That's pronounced "ooze", not uhz, uzi or you-zee. Old high school nickname, don't ask.

I was born in Colorado to parents from the boonies of Upstate NY. So I had the Bills, Sabres and Syracuse on my mind before the Rockies, Rapids and Avalanche moved to Denver. That has left me cheering for colorful selection of sports teams, all of which are terrible. I run Burgundy Wave because there was nobody else on the internet willing to start an oft-updating Rapids blog in mid-2010.

Currently, I live in St. Petersburg, Florida, where I've been pretending to be a Tampa Bay Rowdies fan.
