Inspired by a comment I made with mikesd in my previous article that stated how it seems like a few of us regulars really know each other really well, I've decided to post a thread for us to get to know each other a little better on here.
For me, Silver and Black Pride has really had a community feel to it. A group of tight-knit fans. But we've really had a surge in membership on here and a lot of new usernames and default pics have been showing up in comments these days.
So to help us learn more about you new guys, or just for us S&BP vets to better learn about each other, type a summary of who you are, where you're from, your favorite thing about being a fan, a bio if you will.
Read on to learn a little bit about me to help you get your bio organized.

Greatest Moment on S&BP: Being made an official author on the site. My dream is to be a professional sports writer, hopefully for ESPN. Being made an author on here really made me feel like a true professional.
Now then, on to my list of top-30 bands. Music is above all else in my life, even above sports, family, and friends. Music keeps me sane and happy. Music to me makes life worth living. And here's the top-30 bands that make me feel this way more than any other. Listed in order of fave to least fave amongst my top-30 favorites. So being 30 is still a great band for me.
