Sometimes I feel the need to explain myself for the weird team choices you see over there. So, here goes an attempt at doing so...

I was born and am currently in the process of being raised in Seattle, so that should explain most of the Seattle selections. However, it also brings up the question of "Why WSU?" The simple answer, one that kind of scratches the surface of truth, is that my dad grew up in Richland, WA, and went to WSU for a year (He also went to UW, but that was more of a night-class kind of deal), so I've been slightly indoctrinated to lean that way. However, this is not to say that I'm not a Husky fan, because I most definitely am, and actually found myself rooting for them in the most recent Apple Cup since they had a shot at getting to a bowl game and the Cougs did not. The Gonzaga choice is much simpler: I'm a student there.

I root for the Canucks if they make the playoffs, and even then I don't watch fervently. I'm not much of a hockey fan, but I do enjoy watching it on occasion.

I'm a Mark Martin fan for several reasons, probably the biggest one being that his name happens to be a hybrid of my dad's and my own. Other than that, he's just in general a really classy guy (I hate Kyle Busch with a passion).

I'm an extremely loose AC Milan fan, since I played as a striker with them for a full season in FIFA '08. I've never watched an actual AC Milan game, so I probably am insulting at least a few ultras by having their name in my profile.

A Fan Of...

On the other angle it's clear that the helmet was not knocked off by a tag as I thought.

Eh, it certainly was close but it looked like the helmet came off before the finger got on the bag.
