Meet A Manager: Bad News Bears

Today is the 3rd installment in the ‘Meet A Manager’ series.  Today’s segment features the one in the league that I have known for the longest time.  That just means I want to beat him more than anyone else.   Today we meet the man behind the Bad News Bears…

  • Who is the man behind Bad News Bears (i.e. you)?

Joe.  aka Frank the Tank.

  • What do you do for a living?

Graduate Student at U of I in Electrical & Computer Engineering

  • If we’ve met, how did we meet?

Grade School.

  • What inspired your team name?

A homage to the tradition of my favorite teams being comically and quite epically bad. (a la bears)

  • How long have you played fantasy sports?

This is my second year.

  • What’s your best accomplishment in fantasy sports?

A couple third place finishes, and a first place in another football league last year.

  • What’s your favorite teams and players?

Bears and White Sox.  I also like to root for my alma maters.

  • What’s your most memorable sports moment that you personally have done?

Idk.  My highschool didn’t win too many games against the Chitown area schools.  But doing XC, Bball, and Track every year was pretty freaking awesome.

  • What’s your favorite sports moment overall?

Training last summer by running on trails in the mountains and on the beach.

  • Best vacation you’ve been on?

That’s tough.  Last new years in the French quarter in New Orleans, followed by a road trip to Miami was fun.  (ed. note: That is the wrong answer. 😉  The correct answer is the 8th grade DC trip.  Joe fixed a bed in the hotel room, which our friend Blair promptly ‘tested’ and broke again seconds later.  One of many highlights Joe. 😉 )

  • What superpower would you like to have, and why?

Either time control or Speed.   Actually these are sort of related.  🙂  Why?  Cause there is too much I want to do.

  • Vanilla, chocolate, or other?

Dark Chocolate.   The more bitter the better.

  • What’s your radio dial set on?

Don’t have one.  Thank you Oakland!!

  • Magical technology has created the chance to allow for a night with a female cartoon character.  Who do you pick to enjoy the evening with, and why?

This question hurts my brain.   Can I just stick with real females please?  (ed. note: Spoilsport.)

  • Any parting words for the rest of the league?

Good luck!   And enjoy the summer!

And now you know about Joe.  This has been a great series so far, and look forward to learning about everyone else.
