About Me
 
 
95% Complete Bio
I am now a stay at home dad for a year because I have three children that aren't in school yet. My oldest daughter Megan is three and can't get into preschool because she is too smart and isn't poor. My son James is 21 months and already hits the ball like a champ. My itty-bitty girl Maggie Sue is now six months old and has already logged her first preseason NBA game while sitting with her daddy at home. My wife is a radiation therapist and barely makes enough money for me to stay home. She does give good lovin' though. As for me, I am a former sports writer for a weekly newspaper in West Virginia. Since I've moved here to Illinois five years ago, I have worked as a substitute teacher in the local county school system. Yes, the local children are a little smarter, but they are a whole lot more wisecracking than they've ever been.

Teams Frank Hates
St. Louis Cardinals
Why I Hate Them: These people on a local level are the most obnoxious fans in the sport.
Players I Hate: Most people don't know of any Cardinals pre-Albert Pujols.
New York Yankees
Why I Hate Them: Between them and the Boston Red Sox, they dominate ESPN during baseball season. The only reason that the Yankees get the edge is because of George Steinbrenner.
Players I Hate: None
SportsCenter Anchors
Why I Hate Them: If these guys would quit trying to use their catchphrases and just focus on the news, they'd be a lot more likeable.
Players I Hate: Out of ESPN shows have come Skip and Woody and the ever hateable Stephen A. Smith.
Philadelphia Eagles
Why I Hate Them: Again, their fans make the team not likeable. Heck, if my dad likes your team, I hate you.
Players I Hate: Again, nothing personal against the players.
New York Knicks
Why I Hate Them: How a crappy basketball team gets so much air time, I'll never know.
Players I Hate: Patrick Ewing, the ugliest player since Robert Parish.
Pittsburgh Panthers
Why I Hate Them: They are the natural rivals for WVU. As they always say, "Eat Shit Pitt!"
Players I Hate: Dave "Duh" Wannstedt
Duke Blue Devils
Why I Hate Them: Between them and UNC, ESPN spends their college basketball season in super-woody mode over these teams.
Players I Hate: If you play at Duke, you automatically suck. Once you leave, you are OK.
