In case you missed it, I had the honor of joining Matthew "The Talented Mr. Roto" Berry and Nate "Say Nay Kid" Ravitz in studio on ESPN's Fantasy Focus Baseball Podcast on Monday. We talked baseball, of course, but Matthew started the show by commenting on how he was surprised that I wasn't a hideous-looking man and he couldn't believe I was married with kids, considering how obsessive I was about my website. Hey, I think I'll add that to my bio.
For the record, I do work a lot and, as I mention on the show in a very exaggerated way, I really do hate when the site is not updated for any amount of time. Cutting down on sleep and TV has been my most effective way of balancing everything I do so I can be a husband, father, and care just enough to not allow myself to become hideous-looking. This path is not recommended. Start following your dreams with hard work and passion before you get married and have kids. It's much less stressful.
In all seriousness, I'm lucky to have a very supportive wife, who not only is very beautiful and talented, but understands my obsession with trying to become the greatest at something. She actually didn't understand it one bit when I first started, but said she would be on board once the great Peter Gammons started following me on Twitter. Just a few weeks later, he did just that. I showed my wife the email confirmation from Twitter and she has supported my obsession ever since.
Thanks to Nate and Matthew for having me on the show!
