About me... I found the SBNation pages around about the time that Tubby Smith left Kentucky. I landed at A Sea of Blue and have been delighted to find a home for reasoned discussion of all things Blue. I was born in 1978 and my dad did all he could to try and name me after "Goose" Givens... luckily mom won out on that one. Dad won one later on, my brother is named after Kyle Macy. I still have small scars on my knuckles from scraping them on the ceiling while celebrating Sean Woods' shot in the '92 Duke/Kentucky game... you know the "other" winning shot in that game.

I've tagged SBNation blogs for the Boston Celtics because of their penchant for signing lots of Kentucky players and the San Franciso 49ers page. I know, I know... living in Kentucky how did I end up a Niners fan? When I was in 5th grade, my class was all a-twitter about the (relatively local) Bengals getting ready to play the 49ers in the 1988 Super Bowl; mainly just to be contrary I decided to root for the other team and it just stuck. My all-time favorite NFL player is Steve Young. When the Niners were down, it was hard to follow them from all the way across the country, so I formed an attachment of sorts to the more local teams like Indy and Tennessee. With their recent resurgence and my discovery of NFL Sunday Ticket, I am once again able to follow the team from the middle of the Bluegrass State.

Personally; I am dealing with answering "mid 30's" when filling out profiles that ask for age, I'm originally from the Elizabethtown area and have returned to my old stomping grounds where I opened up my own chiropractic practice in 2006. I attended undergrad during the glory days of sports at Murray State University... the gridiron was coached by Houston Nutt (later of Arkansas and now Ole Miss fame) and the basketball by the much maligned Mark Gottfried. Nothing quite like watching a top 25 nationally ranked team (in the days before it was fashionable to make Drake a top 10 team) in a pit of an arena that only sat about 4,000 fans and I swear you could see clouds forming around the rafters by the end of a sweaty game. After undergrad, I attended chiropractic school in Davenport, IA.

I married the love of my life in 2009, in 2010 my son was born, in 2011 we built a house... on New Year's of 2012 I asked her what she had planned for that year and the answer was "Rest."
