Uncle Crappy may live in Pittsburgh, but he grew up in Columbus. He attended his first Ohio State football game in 1973 and the experience pretty much ruined him for life; he's now a season ticket holder and has spent years torturing himself with endless cycles of angst and ecstasy that come with being a serious college football fan. He's willing to torture others as well, with post after post about the beauty of tailback iso plays run under slate-gray November skies. Being an Ohio guy has been, uh, helpful in other facets of his sports fandom as well. He loves the Cleveland Indians and he'll even publicly admit to being a Cleveland Browns fan, which means he spends a lot of time trying to convince the Stillers fans who surround him that the NFL actually existed prior to the appearance of Chuck Knoll and Terry Bradshaw in Pittsburgh. Uncle Crappy writes about Ohio State football and tailgating at killernutstailgating.com and everything else at unclecrappy.com. He also writes about tech stuff, transportation, craft beer and other things at a Pittsburgh-area newspaper.
