Sports Bio

Brazilian soccername: Binhosa

Fan of:
- Liverpool FC
- USC Trojans (class of '83, except I had no class while in attendance)
- Original SJ Earthquakes, RIP
- Barcelona FC
- SJ Sharks
- 49ers
- NY Giants

Baseball seriously sucks, it's boring, they could shut down MLB tomorrow and I'd be happy especially since the channel that broadcasts the SF Giants games is a Fox affiliate and their games regularly screw up my viewing schedule.

I won the 2005 NFL Playoff Pool

Hoo boy!

Usain Bolt scored two goals in his first professional soccer start: The first goal came from his speed but also featured a nice awareness of positioning, nutmegging the defender and going near post where the goalie was unsighted. Seems like he may have earned a contract!

I was just starting a three year, er, involuntary sabbatical due to being part of the first major layoff at Sun Micro (and the dot com bust) and had just started dating a lovely woman. But in four weeks I will hit my sixth anniversary with one of the hottest still private startups and in four months we'll celebrate our 16th anniversary.

As for this SB matchup, honestly I could care less who wins, but given that the wife would laser drill Brady with her eyes if she could I think this house will be rooting for the Rams.

Timbers were way outplayed in that game, score was far more likely to be 4-0 than 2-2.
