Hi, I'm the Founder of the United Sports of America. I'm a 45 year old sports enthusiast and automation fan. My interests include the TV show Good Eats, indie music, Big Five hoops, Great Value brand microwave popcorn, fitness, and any sitcom that has been syndicated since 1991. Shoutout to The King of Queens, Detroiters, and every Simpsons' character ever especially Lisa Simpson and Frank Grimes.
It's rumored I'm an accomplished ragtime pianist, the inventor of that piece of cardboard on a coffee cup, shocked the world on Pros vs Joes, formerly worked for The Human Fund, while also being the nation's most quoted NFL Pre-Season historian. All just rumors, of course, but I do like to keep a low-profile, so the Chief Operating Officer Mike Ullberg serves as the daily leader of our support staff.
As a member of the Nintendo generation, my fondness for sports and numbers developed by creating teams and players for the various NES sports titles. Foremost, from playing the SNK classic game Baseball Stars.
This fondness for sports math was given further direction after borrowing the book Curveball by Jim Albert and Jay Bennett from my local library and being gifted, one particular Christmas, a copy of Mathletics by Wayne Winston from my older brother. Plus another shoutout to Andrew Mack's Statistical Sports Models In Excel and Joe Peta's book Trading Bases.
