who I am and why this blog

My name is Ryan Perdue
I'm a 34 year-old totally blind guy living in Greensboro North Carolina with my wife Rainee.
I graduated in 1998 from the best and most well known sports institution in the nation, obviously, that would be the Gardner-web University.
I also lived in Portland Oregon from 2001 until 2005
Growing up in North Carolina in the heart of ACC country meant 1 of 2 things. You're family loved the Carolina Tar Heels or all of you're friends did.
I didn't like sports and thought that they were totally rude to interrupt the incredible hulk, and other TV shows I loved as a kid until my grandfather known as PawPaw gave me an offer I couldn't refuse.
I was asked if I'd watch a basketball game with him and if I gave him my opinion on it, he buy me breakfast at biscuit ville.
Many basketball, Football and baseball games later, I have plenty of opinions and I'm also over weight, RIP Pawpaw
I'm writing this blog for 2 reasons, I used to write constantly but that was once upon a time in a land far far away and I really need the practice.
Secondly, sense us blind folks listen to the games, our prospective may be a little different and this will be a great way to explore said avenue.
I will start by posting my College football recap, NFL week 1 recap and my Baseball summery this week and shall continue updating this blog until the Orioles and Pirate make the MLB playoffs.
If you have any feedback good or bad, please contact me.
I promise not to cry. Actually I probably will but it will be from the privacy of my own home in front of an Orioles or Cubs game.
I will also post a brief synopsis of my favorite teams as well later this week.
I will try my best to make this an unbiased blog.
