Favorite Current NFL Player(s):  Adarius Bowman (oh right, NFL, not CFL...)

I hate you.

 

What Brought You to FF: Too old to strongly remember. Recently retired.. so I guess, looking for something I actually cared about, and just learning the internets. 

Favorite Current NFL Player(s): Favorite All-Time NFL Player(s): So many to choose from, thankfully. but all-time has to be Jerry Rice. 

Most Memorable NFL Moment: Other Favorite Sport Teams: Also many to choose from, thankfully. Maybe the dominant Steve Young monkey was probably the most special, I dunno. 

Favorite Players from Other Sports:

I like the Cavs, Bulls, Cubs, Federer. Can't say I am whatever on much else.. maybe not even them so much. 

 

( anyone else having issues with the bold/unbold, on here? )

Favorite College Teams:  LSU Tigers and Mississippi St Dogs. Not a super-crazy fan like so many, but a big fan nonetheless.

Hobbies: Same, except I have been smoke-free for nearly 2 months! I had smoked cigs since I was 14 years old.. so quitting for me is.. pitifully, perhaps my greatest accomplishment in life... and more sadly, there is not all that much to contend with that. 

Favorite Movie(s): I dunno.. so many good ones. Better Off Dead? Se7en? Breakfast Club? American Beauty? The Last Boyscout?  up there, anyway.

Favorite TV Show(s):  24, GOT, Lost, Person Of Interest, Lie To Me, Breaking Bad-Saul, Scrubs, Curb/Seinfeld, Arrested D, X-Files, and when younger.. I adored Moonlighting. 

Favorite Actor(s) and Actress(es): I dunno.. cared more about this when younger. Kevin Spacey is always impeccable. Bruce Willis was always a good one for me. Always been a fan of Holly Hunter, Neve Campbell, Sharon Stone, and Laura Linney. Probably many others that I am not thinking of. 

Favorite Musical Artist(s):  plenty. First comes to my mind... TOTO. Steve Lukather above all. The Porcaros.. RIP, MIke and Jeff. David Paich and Joe Williams, in there too, but still going. 

anyone ever listen to AHA/ Morten Harkett's career work? Holy excrement! 

Favorite Song(s):  The list would be far too dense for me to be comfortable picking out a reasonable amount. 

Favorite Book(s): Favorite Author(s): Don't really read anymore. Disturbed to say more.

Any Other Information: (e.g., married, kids, what you're studying, degree that you have earned, special accomplishments, unique talents, play a musical instrument) 

Been with my wonderful gal for 16 years now.

Two kids.. but not humans.. dachshunds.. Both agreed, no human kids. Can't say I am particularly skilled in much. I'm an intelligent, yet uneducated slab of meat, really. Chiseled, and awe-inspiring 200 lb 40+ year old, that loves drinking beer, watching pron, football, and eating food I should not. 

 

(yeah, having issues at times with the bold words feature, so far)

Are you trying the CTRL+B shortcut? 

I sometimes have a problem with un-bolding with that shortcut on a new line. What I do is type a letter, CTRL+B to un-bold, type a second letter, then delete the first.

Ctrl+b has worked like a charm for me. It works like a charm!

I coach him in Baseball and I must say he is quite the talent on the diamond. Coaching brought back a competitiveness in me that I lost over 5 years ago and the ability to have an impact in someone's life has been the most rewarding aspect of my life. College dropout, just like Kanye.

Suppose I should do this as well lol. 

What Brought You to FF: Way back in the day? Like most, was searching for Mock drafts. 
Favorite current 49er / NFL players: None really. i stopped being a fan of individual players a while back. 

Favorite all time 49er: Pretty much the staples. Montana, Rice, Young, Lott. For somewhat lesser than greatest of all time type? Rathman. William Bar None Floyd baby! Bryant Young. 

Favorite all time non-49ers: Barry Sanders springs immediately to mind. Just watching him sometimes was crazy. Deion. 
Most Memorable NFL Moment:  The catch 2, the catch 3 (too young to remember the catch). Winning the super bowl against the chargers. Niners/Giants and the snap heard round the world. 
Other Favorite Sport Teams:  San Francisco Giants, New Jersey Devils, Ohio State Buckeyes. 
Favorite Players from Other Sports: Nothing really right now, but all time? Barry Bonds, Will Clark, Matty Williams, Martin Brodeur, John Madden (hockey player), Sergei Brylin, Elias & Sykora. 
Favorite College Teams: Oh, err, Ohio State...put it in the wrong spot. 
Hobbies:  Reading, Writing, working out, Poker, video games. Music none of which I have time for any more lol. 
Favorite Movie(s): Too many to count. I Love movies. 
Favorite TV Show(s): Currently? Game of thrones, the 100. Daredevil probably. I'm sure there are some others. All time? Buffy. Battlestar. The wire. 1st season of Veronica Mars. 
Favorite Actor(s) and Actress(es): NOne really - there's nobody out there that I would see a movie for just because they are in it. There are actors who I find to enjoy on a somewhat regular basis but that's quite a few. 
Favorite Musical Artist(s):  Oasis, Hands like Houses, Day to Remember, New Found Glory, Bring me the Horizon, 12 stones, Breaking Benjamin, Thrice, Old Everclear, Four year strong...this could go on a while. 
Favorite Song(s):  This one could go on even longer. But if I had to make my pick of the greatest song ever recorded? I don't know...maybe Yesterday by the Beatles? Or Let it Be by the Beatles. Or Imagine by John Lennon. 
Favorite Book(s):  My favorite series has been the song of ice and fire for about 2 decades now. Some other favorites - the faithful and fallen series, the gentleman bastard sequence, I really liked "Seeker" by Jack McDevitt. Quite a few David Gemmell pieces. 
Favorite Author(s): Oscar Wilde when it comes to pure quotes. Mark Twain as well. Also liked some of their actual literary works lol. Secondarily, hard to say. I mean, I love George Martin, but the only thing of his I've ever actually read of his is the song of ice and fire novels, so I've read far fewer of his books than I Have of a lot of other people. 
Any Other Information: (e.g., married, kids, what you're studying, degree that you have earned, special accomplishments, unique talents, play a musical instrument): New father, 9 month old son named Lennon. He's awesome...takes after me. I'm old. 36. When I started posting here, lived in Cincinnati, now live in Las Vegas. Play poker a lot. I've got some degrees. I've gotten cranky in my old age and I start advocating to give up on young guys after they fumble on one play...in preseason lol. I love wombats. I dislike raccoons because they are creepy, and smart, and vicious, vicious animals.

Raccoons cannot be trusted. I had one laying by my pool with his paw dangling into the water just daring me to step to him. I went back in the house because I'm not losing that fight. I have a possum in my yard now. Those are worthless animals.
