Favorite/Most Hated NFL Player of All Time: I have a massive man-crush on Brett Favre. Always have, always will. I wish he would've sent me the dick pick 🍆. I loathe Tom "Butt Chin" Brady, Russell "Douche Canoe" Wilson.

Extra Tidbits: I have three furry children in addition to my son and daughter - Potter is a Lab Mutt, Hugo is a Chocolate Lab and our new guy, Kermit Van Halen, is a Gordon Setter. I'm a Seinfeld and The Office addict - could watch those shows over and over. I graduated from Robert E. Lee High School in Baytown, TX in 1990 and went to Stephen F. Austin State in Nacogdoches, TX where I received a Journalism and History B.A. After beating around in sales for 11 years I switched gears completely and got my teaching license then taught 4th grade for 10 years before "retiring" as stay-at-home dad. I have many tattoos and plan on getting many more. I ate a Guinea Pig in Cuzco, Peru en route to Machu Picchu.
