Ratman...there are plenty of champs here, but like me I am the "BEST" when it comes to runner-up...I own 2nd place(first and last to lose)....winners are those who keep coming back and giving it another shot at the title...the ones who don't(unlike you & me) are quitters!!!

When: 29 yrs old. Hit the big 3-0 this fall.

 

Where: Phoenix, land of the eternal sun, via God's country: Fargo, ND via Grand Forks, ND via NW Minnesota.

 

When did you live in Fargo? I lived there from 1984-1992. That was a bit before my time. I went to college in Grand Forks (GB the Fighting Sioux) from fall 92 - fall 96. Then moved to Warroad, MN for about a year and a half. Then moved back to Grand Forks and worked in Fargo, commuting for over a year, before moving to Fargo beginning of 2000. Lived there until fall of 2001 and moved to Phoenix.

 

That's the long answer I guess. loco

Kind of a trial by fire. I found the Huddle midway through my first season and haven't regreted it!! Last year I had the most points in my league thanks to the advice on this site. Thanks guys!! (even though I didn't win!! angry )

WHEN: 35 but look and act 25, or so I'm told

WHY: FF? Because I just can't get enough. The Huddle? Poignant analysis and witty banter

Who: Cunning Runt (and cunning I am). Have also went by Swami, Truman, Barnabus, and Doomsday on these boards. Will probably go by something else again before the year's out if a humorous tag strikes me. Oh, I'm also by far the smartest FF guy on this board bar none. wink

 

What: Commercial Real Estate

 

When: 38 (though all the sports I play, drinking I do, and pot I smoke sure makes me feel youunger than that) - that and I have a 2yr old and one on the way helping keep me feeling like I'm 21.

Where: North America -

 

Why: 1.I absolutely love competition 2.Gives me an excuse to go to the sports bar ALL DAY on Sundays 3.I love football 4.I now have my 10yr old son involved and am in a couple free yahoo leagues with him so I'm rasing him right cool_thu 5. Because I can

 

Fantasy Bio: Smartest FF guy alive (as noted previously). Commish my local league for 6 years running with 1 Championship 2 years ago. I'm from IN so I guess I'd like to see the Colts do well, but honestly, I just love pro football and when I'm at the aforementioned sports bar, I do not watch a team - I watch my guys and every little play matters. If I've got a receiver, I want a passing situation, etc.. you know what I mean. Love this freakin' game

 

Anyway - welcome all and best of luck to ya !!
