Commissioner of Hockey, St. Louis Blues in HOckey, Chisox in Baseball, Titans in NFL, Notre Dame in College.

What is your favorite sports movies, and why?
I love Major League, For Love of the Game, and Rudy. Major League is just so funny. For Love of the Game may be a cheesy romance, but I love being in his head as he is pitching. Rudy reminds me of myself when I played High School football, plus I love Notre Dame.

Homebrew, reading, collecting tobacco pipes (smoking them occasionally also), fishing and hiking.

What is your super power?
I turn water and barley into beer.

Please share anything else you’d like us to know!
I really enjoy this community. I want to make SSG Hockey one of those leagues that eventually anyone that enjoys online hockey simulations is hoping we have an opening. I know we have some ways to go in both FHM2 itself and our league, but I’m positive we can get there.
