Michael Brown bio
Occupation: Sports editing assistant (my technical title is Sports Viewer -- seriously)
College: B.A. in Sociology, Montclair State University
Birthplace: Belleville, NJ
Current location: Belleville, NJ (Corrado Soprano is my neighbor)
Family: Girlfriend of 6 years, no kids
Favorite NFL team: San Diego Chargers
Years playing fantasy football: Ten
Favorite thing about fantasy football: Preparing for the draft, and of course the draft itself
If I was Paul Tagliabue for a day...: Ban fans from dressing like idiots for NFL games (not anyone specific like Raider fans, for instance).
Something odd/different about you: I live well over half of my waking time in sweatpants.
Have never been drunk nor smoked anything.
I eat sandwiches/cheeseburgers/pizza the exact same way every single time, without fail. I guess it's more OCD than simply "something odd" :)
I've never been further north than New Hampshire or further south than Virginia
Brush with greatness: Got to tell Eli Manning that I didn't like him very much to his face. I'm sure he cared since he was surrounded by about a dozen girls who all wanted to know if he could hook them up with Jesse Palmer.
Favorite Movie(s): Field Of Dreams, 1, 2, Goodfellas, Ocean's Eleven, The Rock, Office Space, Dumb and Dumber, Crippled Masters, Midnight Run, Cleaver (a Christopher Moltisanti production), Anchorman, Rounders, JFK, The Phil Chronicles
Favorite CD(s)/album(s): Anything by The Darkness or Beach Boys, lots of greatest hits, 80's rock (ok fine, and monster ballads)
Biggest vice: Cheeseburgers
Pet peeve: People who kick your chair at sporting events, movies, etc.
People who talk at movies.
Cell phone ring tones that are supposed to sound like songs.
Businesses that have five separate lines for each teller/cashier, rather than one long line so the next person in line is always accomodated. Why would you want to be intentionally inefficient?!?
People who cut me off and then act like it's MY fault.
Baseball broadcasters who openly root for their own "home" teams.
People who tell me I shouldn't root for UNC basketball or Notre Dame football just because I didn't go to school there. I say it's stupider to root for the sports teams simply because you took Biology within 10 miles of the football field! One has nothing to do with the other.
When I ask someone to not talk about a tv show, movie, etc., and they HAVE to tell me just one thing...
