Back several years ago I was sending out my NFL Predictions with a score and many times a wise ass Comment, Usually it got a chuckle response, sometimes a nasty note, I won't name names Pete so no one will know who did that to me. The Idea of the smart ass remarks after the game was stolen from Orlando Sentinel sportswriter Jerry Greene and his From the Cheap Seats column.
Well one time one of my friends said I should start a blog and also I am a nutball.
I thought Great Idea, And sent back to him the Idea of "The Nutball Gazette" Well he loved it, and so it was born,
At first it was just done in an E Mail form than moved to The Sporting News.
By the way I was also calling myself "The Expert" with my "Brilliant" picks
For quite a while I was reading Lias and Jon on Subway Squawkers on the daily News Website, then when they moved to her current blog an Blogspot I followed mine over to Blogspot in November 2008. Through there I have found so many brilliant writers who are much better at this than I am.
Well that is a bit of my story. Feel free to look back and see some of my rants, When you look back you will soon realize why I am called Nutball.
