The karma gods showed plenty of spite reincarnating me in the state of Minnesota--I hate cold weather. Given I haven't done anything about it yet, I continue to make the best of life here in the tundra. Blogging is avocation for me, and I continue to have a love/hate relationship with sports. There's nothing as poetic as an athlete competing at a skill level beyond the reach of many; there's nothing as disappointing as to see rampant greed and excessive capitalism destroy a gift meant for all classes of society. Alternately lampooning and celebrating sports is what I do best; we need to stop taking ourselves so seriously. My blogging motto: Arrogance isn't pretty, but it can be funny. I'm slightly older than the average blogger, although you'll see signs of immaturity in my prose. I'm married and putting a daughter through college, so I bring a certain middle age perspective to this whole endeavor. Wealth, success and fame do not automatically translate into competence, and I feel it's important to articulate that as we follow our favorite teams. Everyone is flawed; the next step in evolution is to acknowledge that and succeed despite of it. Stop the hero worship!
