I have been a fan of SF Bay Area college and professional teams since I was a youth growing up here. I'm a college professor who teaches Global Education, English, and Japanese language and culture.
I enjoy reading and learning from AN fans' comments on the AN blog. My two favorite among regulars are Blez and Nico whose professionalism, maturity, insights on baseball, and eloquent writing distinguish themselves head and shoulders among all at AN. I especially enjoy Nico's terrific sense of humor and his play with words. I also admire those occasional posters who provide excellent, penetrating insights while respecting the decency of others.
