Good day! I like to comment on things. Usually my rantings are limited to SI's comment boards which I regularly frequent under the pseudonym Plainview. When I feel particularly pissed off about something or it suits my fancy, I'll post the overflow here or post a choice comment of mine for ease of discussion. Hometown: Baltimore I follow NFL, MLB, CFB, NBA, NCAA Basketball, but not hockey. Can't see the puck or follow the game. You can check out my old stuff, but it's probably crap. Updated 2/13/2014

The title of this post is a bit misleading.  "A return" implies that I was here.  I really wasn't.  A few blog posts of marginal length, mostly on football.  I played fantasy football then.  I think I will try to make a 'comeback'!  But first, a few things about myself, so that my biases can be recognized.  I was raised in Baltimore, MD and still live in MD today.
