Your Hometown Country Connection


Night time is the right time!
I've been a night person all my life and this is the first time anyone's appreciated it! I was born in Philadelphia and lived many years in the Baltimore area. I've loved radio since I was a kid and consider myself extremely lucky to do it for a living. I'm a 2002 graduate of the DC campus of the Connecticut School of Broadcasting, I'm a writer, musician and cartoonist in my free time. And I'm a huge fan of the Philadelphia Phillies, Eagles, Flyers and Sixers as well as the Maryland Terrapins.

Fantasy Football is Neither

I used to belong to a fantasy football league, but I quit. At first it was fun: do the draft, make your roster, select your defense. Then it became work. I found myself trying to keep up with players on 10 teams and getting angry at the Sunday game commentators when they didn't talk about my players. Of course, the reason they didn't talk about my players was simple: none of my players were in the game they were covering. I didn't care about that, though. I was crazed, see?

And then there were the other team owners in my league, who were just as insane as I was, maybe more so. I can't tell you how many phone calls I recieved at 3:20 am that went about like this: "Hey. JD. You awake? Hey, man, I need you to trade me Steve Smith. Who do you want for him? Come on, man, what do you mean you have to get some sleep?"

After two years of this madness I decided enough was enough. When the time came to finalize league membership this year, I let the other owners know I would not be participating. They made fun of me. They cracked jokes at my expense. They insisted that I was quitting because I was mad I never won a championship. Can you imagine such a thing?

On a completely unrelated note, I'm thinking about getting back into it next year. I'm reasonably sure with one more season I can win the whole thing.
