What is your first sports memory? I won some kind of little kid of the future good job award back in elementary school, and got tix to a Blazers V. Bulls game. I shook hands with the players and the whole deal. Clyde, Buck, MJ, Scottie, all these guys.

What is your dream sporting event to attend? Other than SB 48; Game 7 NBA finals Blazers at the Moda.

What is your favorite sports movie? To watch has to be "Major League 2." As a movie, I gotta say "Eight Men Out."

Why do you want to host your own show on The FAN? I feel I'm a guy with a unique insight about sports. I dig deep to support my opinions...which are many, and love the discourse. It's all about the people, and the passion for their guys, and I like to ruffle feathers and get things going!

Anything else you want people to know about you? I met Ernie Hudson from "Ghostbusters," once. If you meet me, ask me to tell you the story.
