My name is Nick Andron and I’m a guy that loves the Seahawks far and away more than any other team in any other sport. I grew up with basketball, and I loved basketball. But our team was swept away and moved to a far away city to enjoy the fruits of our labor. The bitter aftertaste is still there, and will not likely go away. Even if Seattle is somehow awarded another team.
From then on out, it was all football. The 2005 season hooked me. Not only to the Seahawks, but to football. The complexity, physicality and erratic nature of football, once reasons for my distaste of the sport, were suddenly alluring. There was so much to know, so much strategy involved, careful planning and brilliant play design. It blossomed like a flower and I realized how beautiful the game of football really was.
Ok, maybe “beautiful” is a bit of a stretch. But it’s pretty damned awesome.
I’m not a homer. You’ll see realism (read: well-argued negativity) when I feel it’s warranted. You’ll see opinions and analysis backed up by objective information and advanced statistics. And you’ll see punctuation outside of quotes. Because I’m a rebel, and I’m not quoting an exclamation point, for instance, the entire sentence is an exclamation.
I live in Seattle with my beautiful, perfect, amazing wife. I’m an ecommerce marketing and social media guy and I’m 28 years old.
And feel free to chat with, or follow, me on Twitter. I’m addicted to Twitter.
