Some people get tattoos, shave their head with a logo of their team, deck their car out in team gear. Have you do anything fanatical like this?
I would never get a sports-related tattoo. And now that I have a decently nice vehicle, I'm not going to be defacing it too badly any time soon. I display my fanaticism on the internet. At games, I actually find myself concentrating on the plays, and I tend to have the stoicism of a coach. Sometimes, like everyone, I go nuts, but generally I'm the calm one out of my group when I go to games.
Do you have any of your own sports superstitions/rituals for when your favorite teams play? If so, what are they?
No, I'm not really a superstitious guy like that.
Recently you went to the season opener for the Patriots, how was it? How do you think they will do this year?
It. Was. Awesome. It was my first trip to Gillette Stadium, and it was a great one. The Patriots looked pretty bad for a while, but they were dominant in the last 5 minutes or so, and got the win. I'm still a little nervous about them, and I'm still hoping that Tom Brady will really transform back into his old self. If that happens, I think they could definitely make some noise. If Jerod Mayo comes back strong late in the season, they could even win the Super Bowl again.
How did you find FanIQ?
Someone posted a link on Myspace, and I checked it out. I've been hooked ever since.
What is your position at FanIQ and how long have you been there?

What’s your favorite poll that you, yourself, created?
I like the one I made about the mullet guy.
