The Sportsman

What's up, everyone? My name is Splatz. I am going to be the sports guy here at Throw Down. If you are wondering if I am qualified to write about sports, don't, because I am. You would be hard pressed to find someone who follows sports closer than I do.

I was born and raised in Salem, OR. I lived in Boise, ID for about three months when I was really young. I went to the University of Oregon for a year, but I had a little too much fun and didn't get enough work done. Since then, I have been working and taking classes when I can.

I have my mom in my life still. She has probably been the most important person in my life. I have one brother who is 2 1/2 years younger. My dad passed away about 3 1/2 years ago, but I didn't really know him all that well, so it didn't hurt as bad as it could have.

Other than being an insanely huge sports fan, my other interests (of which there are many, so I won't list all of them) include music, movies, wrestling, tv, etc...

Enough about my personal life - now is the time when I will piss a few people off. When it comes to sports I am very opinionated. I have my favorite teams, and I have teams that I hate beyond belief. I will say what I feel in my columns - no sugar-coating here. If you don't like what I have to say, then tough shit. This is my column, not yours. No one said that you had to read my columns. We do have an e-mail address ( here at Throw Down so if you wnat to write me and tell me your opinions or tell me how much of an idiot I am, feel free. But I should warn you not to be suprised if I put your letter in my column and proceed to make fun of you.

This is my old project, THROWDOWN.

A group of friends and I put together this little project in 2003 as an outlet of out collective rage and anger about the subjects that each of us cared about. I was the editor-and-chief and games writer back then.

It was a blast to do and it to be involved in a great collaborative effort using the strengths of my friends was simply amazing. I hope you have fun reading our work as much as we had in creating it.
