I was born and raised in the St. Louis area and have been a St. Louis Cardinals fan all of my life. After graduating high school, I went to the University of Missouri-Rolla (now Missouri S&T) and majored in Ceramic Engineering. I have bounced around to a few places after college working several jobs and am now in Davenport, IA. Unfortunately, shortly after moved here, the Quad Cities single A baseball team switched affiliation from the Cardinals to the Astros. The Quad Cities is a unique area because about half the people here are Cardinals fans, the other half are Cubs fans. But, the best thing about the Quad Cities is that I met my wife here. We were actually just married in November 2013.
