How long at SportsRadio 610: I’ve been here since July, 2012
Coolest person at SR610: Based on her trendy glasses, Laura Reynolds. Based on Super Bowl rings, Ted Johnson.
What I love about Houston: I love that it has so many professional sports. I love that it kicked the recession’s ass. I love that it has ethnic diversity.
Favorite four-letter word: The C word. It is the nuclear weapon of four letter words.
Experience: I was a defensive linemen in the NFL for 10 years. I was drafted by the Jacksonville Jaguars in 1997 , then went to the Texans in 2002, where I played for 5 years.
Teams followed: I grew up a Bills fan. I still have many cheesy Bills posters in my room at my Mom’s house. There exist pictures of me wearing red, white, and blue Zubaz.
Favorite sports experiences: Beating the Cowboys in the first Texans game ever. Going 14-2 and making it to the AFC Championship game with the Jaguars in 1999. Playing college football at a non-scholarship school, where guys played simply because they loved it.
Sports played: I played football from fifth grade through my tenth year in the NFL. I wrestled until my junior year in high school, when I quit because I would have had to wrestle heavyweight at 6’2” and 185 lbs. My wrestling coach thought it was idiotic that I was planning to focus on lifting weights and getting bigger for football. He said something along the lines of, “What do think you’re going to do, play in the NFL?”
Family: My wife competes with the Houston Roller Derby. She’s a furious little badass. My brother, Dan, was an All American wrestler at Clarion University. After college he went on to play for the US in the Rugby World Cup and now is the head rugby coach at Life Univesity.

Take heart in the fact that there is still a plethora of sports in which we Americans only take note when things are going well. They are sports in which it is still okay for us to lose. I list them for you in the video above. If we have an American champion in one of these sports, we delight in his or her success. Once that champion fades, however, we barely acknowledge that the sport exists.
