New Jersey born and raised, and while I still follow some New York area teams, the Mets and Yankees are not among them. Been a Braves fan all my life, but adopted the Blue Jays as the 2nd favorite along the way. Jason Kidd made the Nets a team to watch again, and while there's a handful of teams I like in the NFL, there was something sweet about seeing Golden Boy Brady getting slammed to the turf by the Giants in Super Bowl XLII. Now living just outside of DC I'll go to a Nats game, feel sorry for 'Skins fans. I realize being a Giants fan here isn't exactly popular I'm well aware.

I'm a physicist and am one of those awful people according to the GOP because I work for the federal government. I got my BS in Physics at Rochester Institute of Technology where the only sport that is Div-1 (Men's Ice Hockey) is the one I follow on webcast from 2000 miles away. I got my masters in Atmospheric Sciences in South Dakota while serving a tour in the Air Force as a civil engineer, and working briefly at NASA in Maryland. I'll restart a PhD at George Mason soon enough.

Sports - I can play about a dozen sports pretty well. I'm also smart enough to realize that I love sports and my favorite teams - but in the grand scheme of things, sports are of low importance in the real world.

As for my list of people the sports world would be best without:
1. The Steinbrenners (All of them)
2. Bud Selig
3. David Stern
4. Barry Bonds
5. Roger Clemens
6. Donald Fehr
7. Scott Boras
8. Drew Rosenhaus
9. Bruce Bowen
10. Jerry Jones

    It's time to prepare the throne, the King has arrived in New York! Lebron James made his only appearance of the season at Madison Square Garden against the Knicks tonight. Take a look.

    A couple of weeks ago, I wrote The Year Too Early NFL All-Decade Team.

    This is its baseball counterpart, The Half of a Year Too Early MLB All-Decade Team, and my 100th article here on Bleacher Report.

    With each big name that is leaked to steroid use, America's most hated player is slowly becoming its most trusted. The biggest names in baseball are falling subject to steroid use.
