i'm a nerd
my friend matt has a theory that we're all nerdy about something - some of us may try and pretend that's not true, but that just means you do a good job hiding your nerdiness. i think he's spot on.
so confession time - i'm a nerd about fantasy baseball. yesterday i paid money to go to a three hour lecture on fantasy baseball strategy (in neighboring arcadia, ca), given by other notable fantasy nerds, jeff erickson, todd zola, and most notably - ron shandler (left to right). in a room of about 100 other (mostly white, middle-aged, and male) nerds, we talked about thrilling topics like "5 hot prospects most at risk of failing", "8 undervalued veterens over 30", and "8 stars to risky to roster".
anyone else willing to admit to their inner nerd?
