I'm a St. Louisan trying really hard to follow the Cards and Blues while living in Atlanta. I've been shockingly successful.

I've been the blog manager for St. Louis Game Time since January of 2013, and have been writing for the site since July of 2009. I am also the associate editor at Bloguin's flagship site Puck Drunk Love, and I occasionally post on my own blog, Thrashing the Blues.

I was a season ticket holder and fan of the Atlanta Thrashers before relocation, but I've been a Blues fan all of my life. Whatever pessimism I have learned from sports, I have learned from those two teams. They have taught me surprisingly well.
