An Introduction Thread

So I’m totally stealing this idea from the good folks over at WAGNH (We Ain’t Got No History, for Chelsea fans). I thought it would be a great way to meet all of you internet folks. Feel free to share as much or as little as you want. Possible topics to include:

• Where you’re from, where you’re currently living

• How you became a Hawkeye fan, and/or your favorite Hawkeye athlete/ team, favorite game

• Your favorite soccer team ( if you have one) or any other sports teams that you follow

• Favorite kind of booze (if applicable), Music, Movies/TV shows, Books, etc. Feel free to include any other tidbits about yourself.

I’ll start. My name is Ben, I’m 22, an unemployed chef/cook (so much for having 2 degrees) looking for work. Born and raised in Des Moines, Iowa, although I spent 6 months last year living in Montana, and in all likelihood am headed back that way in the next few months.

I was born into the Hawkeye Family, as you can tell from my avatar, my favorite player is Tim Dwight, namely because he’s the only player from the 90s that I remember. My favorite season was 2002; my favorite game was the 2005 Capital One Bowl, mostly because I was there.

I am also a huge soccer fan, specifically Chelsea, as noted above.

Alcohol is kind of a passion of mine, especially wine (mostly Pinot Noir), whiskey (especially bourbon), and of course beer.

I’ve been on a classic country kick for a while; Waylon, Willie, Dwight, etc. I also enjoy the more current Jamey Johnson, Mumford and Sons and Euforquestra. My current favorite movies is/are Tombstone/Wyatt Erp. I have too many favorite TV shows to list, and don’t read enough to have a favorite book.

Go crazy folks.
