Who is your favorite Rams player? Past or Present?: I should probably say my cousin who is in the HoF as a Ram (Elroy Hirsch), but I met him all of once when he was like 70 after he's already retired from coaching Wisconsin.  So I've honestly got to say Jack Youngblood.  I never really got much of a chance to see him play, but before the Rams moved from LA, he was legitimately Mr. Ram - was out at a ton of fan events, big or small - and his intensity was just plain nuts.

What do you do?I teach high school English and am the associate chair of the English department at my school.  I'm also starting a EdD (Doctorate) program this fall.

What other teams are you a fan of?California (don't give me any of the Los Angeles of Anaheim crap) Angels, Arsenal FC, Clippers, Blackhawks, and I may end up supporting LAFC in the MLS - haven't decided yet, but I've met a number of people associated with the club so far and they've all been class.

Do you play sports? If you've hung up the cleats, inform us of your glory days when you used to be able to throw a pigskin a quarter-mile.I played D1 college soccer.  Before that football (strong safety/TE), soccer, and volleyball (defensive specialist; my high school team was ultra-competitive and you weren't playing front line unless you were 6'4" or taller - I'm 6'1"+) in high school; along with club soccer year round.  Now that I'm going for my Doctorate, I'm having to give up playing in my indoor soccer league I've been in for the past 6 years, but I'm trying to time things right so that I can get back to coaching youth soccer around the time my twins are able to actually play competitively.

Who is your dream girl? (those that are married, go ahead and say your wife! That way she doesn't beat you senseless when she browses through you history): Honestly, my wife would be cool regardless.  But for safety's sake I'll bust out the first dream girl I ever had (it was a FB topic recently so this is no new info for her): Tiffani Amber-Thiessen... or more specifically Kelly Kapowski

What do you like to eat?: Lately it's been noodles - not pasta... noodles, especially Thai food.  But barbecue is big with me, so are breakfast burritos and out-of-the-ordinary tacos.  I rarely eat fast food - just stopped really having a taste for it.  We'll see how long that lasts once my kids discover it.

What other hobbies do you have?I write a ton.  Two feature-length screenplays, three shorts, one novel, plus I've written for the Chargers arm of SB Nation for the past 3 years; I'm working on getting my stuff published by Turf Show Times now.  I also surf (when I can... once you have kids, everything is "when I can"), coach volleyball at my school, and sit on the BoD's of two local non-profits.

Why did you choose your username?: It's one of the more commonly held nicknames (Thanks Snoop!) for Long Beach, CA which is where I used to live when I first joined FF and where I still work.

Name one really cool event in your life.I'll admit I've been privileged.  Playing in an NCAA Tournament Semi-Final is up there.  Obviously getting married and having kids.  More recently, I got to go hangout at an LA Galaxy game in the Coach's Suite which is the most exclusive suite in the stadium with Bruce Arena, the US Mens Soccer coach, several USMNT players, and several big name international soccer players.  (And if we're being totally specific, I got to be there because one of the non-profits I sit on helped a girl from Texas with cystic fibrosis get a double-lung transplant and she, after her six-month checkup, was being honored by the Galaxy at that particular match.)

Who is your favorite Rams player? Past or Present?: That guy in my avatar. They just don't make em like that anymore.

What do you do?I'm a market development manager for Coca Cola

What other teams are you a fan of?Dodgers, The Arsenal and Reno 1868's. I was a Laker fan when I watched the NBA but haven't really watched it about a decade. Don't really have an MLS team.

Do you play sports? If you've hung up the cleats, inform us of your glory days when you used to be able to throw a pigskin a quarter-mile.I was a keeper when I played soccer for many years.

Who is your dream girl? (those that are married, go ahead and say your wife! That way she doesn't beat you senseless when she browses through you history): It doesn't get much better than Kate Beckinsale.

What do you like to eat?: Pizza and a good beer is a hard meal to pass up. 

What other hobbies do you have?Reading and writing, I have a couple things I do volunteer work with. I'll make some popcorn and watch most any cheesy 70's, 80's or 90's scifi fantasy movie.

Why did you choose your username?:  OldSchool was taken, which I go by on other Rams boards so this one just happened. Don't really like it though.

Name one really cool event in your life.Went to a lot of the 1984 Olympic's, I have an aunt and uncle that live in SoCal and spent a lot of time down there in summers growing up (the major reason I root for so many LA teams even though I never lived there). We went to the bronze medal soccer match and even though I was already playing at that time watching such quality play hooked me for life on the sport.

Man, youre crazy. He isnt renouncing or denouncing the Targaryen name. That dude is going to marry Dany. It's the only way to bring the north and south back together peacefully. It's coming as sure as winter.

Congrats on the house!!! There isnt much out there that is more stressful. Especially if you (or more importantly, the wife) really like the house and location. But you did it. And now youre making money rather than giving it away!

Who is your favorite Rams player? Past or Present?: I'd say Marshall Faulk. In my early years of being a Rams fan I basically worshipped him.

What do you do?: I work at a Harley Davidson dealership for my dad. Right now I'm in the clothing department but I may be transitioning into the parts department soon.

What other teams are you a fan of?: The Virginia Tech Hokies. Live close to the school and been to games and been a fan my whole life. I try to keep up with USMNT the best I can also.

Do you play sports? If you've hung up the cleats, inform us of your glory days when you used to be able to throw a pigskin a quarter-mile.: Haven't played competitive sports since high school. Soccer was the sport I prioritized most. I'd like to think I was pretty solid.

Who is your dream girl? (those that are married, go ahead and say your wife! That way she doesn't beat you senseless when she browses through you history): I always have trouble answering questions like this. I feel like it's always changing and there's never been that specific girl that sticks. Lately I've started to develop a thing for Cate Blanchett. Great combo of looks and acting ability.

What do you like to eat?: A lot of things. There's not much I won't eat. I really hate olives though and I've never understood the appeal of oysters.

What other hobbies do you have?: I'm  a really big movie buff. I watch a lot of movies and I'm pretty obsessive about it. The last few years I've tracked literally every movie I've watched. My blu ray/DVD collection is over 2000. I'd also start like to start riding my bike more often.

Why did you choose your username?: Because it had Ram in it, plus because of the movie Super Troopers. I don't really like my username. I would definitely change it if I could.

Name one really cool event in your life. It's hard to name one. I feel like I've done a number of cool things. Back when I was about 15 I was in a foreign exchange program where I spent about three weeks of the summer with a family from Barcelona. As of the last few years, I've really gotten into EDM and I'll do about 3-4 music festivals a year.

I technically didn't grow up in LB - just down PCH in Huntington Beach.  My dad is originally from Long Beach (played football for Long Beach State back when it actually had a team), but I didn't end up there until after college because one of my former high school teachers (and one of the guys who inspired me to want to be a teacher) was on the Single-Subject Credential faculty at Long Beach State and helped me get an easier path to a student-teaching and eventual hire at a high school in LB.

Also, I played AYSO until about age 12 - and the last two years of that was AYSO Premier (invite only team within the region) - after that it was all club (Wolfpack Gold and Premier) for me.
