Bringing forth FanIQ's greatest asset every week - you! This week we bring you Marcus_nyce!! Please join me in getting to know one of FanIQ's funniest guys, Marcus_Nyce.
Name: Marcus M. Nyce (The M is for mother-blankin’) It’s a nom-de-plume, but “MY NAME IS MY NAME!” I love that Marlo quote from The Wire, love it. That’s all I’m giving up.
General Location: Montreal (The ATL in the fall!!)
Job: Self employed. I own a few franchises and I’m starting a media / holding company with my cousins and father. My cousin Denise already has a show pretty much sold. Stay tuned. Get it. I know I suck, whatever… and we’re a doing clothing line on the side with some of the proceeds going to our alma mater, Florida A+M University. ‘Some’ of the proceeds. We’re not trying to build a library or anything.
Favorite Teams: WHODAT!, HABS, EXPOS, KNICKS. I also root for the democratic process in Iran, the environment and the economy. Basically, I’m a cooler.
Least Favorite Teams: 49ers, Leafs, DC ZOMBIE EXPOS, DODGERS
Favorite Experts: Bill Simmons. He’s not an expert, but close enough. His mother and I are probably the only two people excited for his 1000 page book on the NBA. He also just recently had a phenomenal podcast with Dan Klores. Those 30 for 30 documentaries have me fired up. They sound great! It’s about time the “mothership” got its act together.
Least Favorite Experts: Anybody who has a high horse. I hate the high horse. I wish these high horse’s backsides [pun intended] would get off their pearly-white Clydesdales and just break it down like the rest of us would in a bar. (Yeah, I’m looking at you Fox MLB duo.)
You are a hockey fan, and live in Canada... connection? Did they make you like hockey to move there, or was this something that you were a fan of in the US? eh?
Yep, I grew up in Montreal. It’s religion. I moved here when I was like 2, so basically I’m Canadian with a U.S. Passport. If you love sports, you have got to take in a playoff hockey game in a Canadian city. It’s unreal.
How do you feel about Carey Price?
Twenty year-old millionaires should NOT be unleashed in Montreal. EVER. If they ever get an NBA team in Montreal, look out. There will be so many stories, photos and cell-cam videos that we are all going to have to CTRL+ALT+DELETE the internet at the same time to unfreeze it.
Do you feel like he's a legitimate #1 goalie?
I hope so. It’s been so hard to tell. The media, fans, organization have placed so much pressure on him that it’s no wonder he loves the drinking age and the fact that, umm, in the Champagne Rooms you are openly encouraged to grope. Not that I would know anything about that…
