I was thinkin yesterday, I have been playing with you guys in the LOD for a while now and really dont know that much about some of you guys. I have a few pretty good friends here in the LOD that I know too much about
. I thought it would be cool to introduce yourself and give a little bit of background on yourself, thats if you are not in the witness protection program*cough* Captain *cough.
I start the ball rollin and if you guys would like to follow feel free.
My name is Todd,38 years young, from the burbs of Detroit, closer to Ann Arbor area. Been married for going on 13 years now to my wonderful wife Michelle.(just in case she reads this)
We have 3 wonderful kids, Trevor who is 9, Alexis who is 6, and Ty who is going to be 5 in July. I love to fish, and collect and breed fish. I also have a passion for reptiles and amphibians. We have just 2 dogs left a Chinese Shar Pei and my wifes weiner dog who I believe is a vampire and will never die
I attended the University of Michigan(GO BLUE) and I am currently employed by Toyota Motor Sports(Yes I still drive an American made Car). I love my job work with some really cool guys(all love football) so that makes the days a bit more enjoyable for me.
I love heavy metal/thrash music always have and always will. Looking forward to seeing Slayer this summer
. Listening to the House of Hair as I write this now
My other hobbies outside of fantasy football include, mountain biking, which I trail every sunday morning in the offseason with a few buddies of mine. I am also currently pursing my black belt in Muay Thai. I currently have black belts in Tang Soo Do and Tae Kwon Do. Martial arts have been more of obsession of mine since I was 7. My father got me into it for the discipline, I have been in love with it ever since. My oldest son is currently a red belt 2nd degree gup in Tang Soo Do. I am very proud of him, he has come a long way and has focused on his goal the past 3 years. I play hockey once a week in a beer league with some friends that I have known and played hockey with for years. I would like to take up Golf one day, I am just so bad at it that its hard to golf with my buddies they are much better then me.
I am the youngest of 4 boys, thats what drove me in Martial Arts(tired of getting my ass kicked)
. I play in a couple of leagues with my oldest brother and my brother that is just above me in age. We all get along good now that we are older, that excludes football conversations
My oldest brother has been running leagues for the past 25 years now, good old USA today! He is the one that got me into this crazy obsession!Took over a team in one of his leagues one year and the rest is history. I play in a few leagues here and there outside of this one.Well one more now thanks to Sean(Captain). I enjoy fantasy football, takes my mind off the real world for a bit everyday and I am thankful for that!
Hoping to get to know more about each of you, this is a great group of guys here in the LOD. It is by far one of my favorite leagues.
