Spheroid: The life of a Yankee fan

Felix_1Fasten your seatbelts, because the second half is going to be unreal. But you already knew that. It’s why you’re blogging about baseball here at MLBlogs and taking the chance to tell the world what you think of everything that’s happening around the clock. We’re ready to rock the house, and so is Felix over at The life of a Yankee fan. You know how much this guy loves the Bronx Bombers. Did you know how much he loves chicken? Did you know the familiar photo to the left was taken during Roger Clemens’ 300th career victory? Gotta get to know the guy behind the blog, and we appreciate him taking the time to answer Nine Questions as today’s featured Spheroid:

1. What are the best reasons that other baseball fans should visit your MLBlog?

CAUSE I KEEP IT REAL!!!!! When it comes to my blog, I like to tell it like it is, through my eyes. It’s my outlet to praise the players who contribute and to vent about the players who simply are not getting it done. I like to think that I have a bit of a rough edge, but when you grow up in The Bronx, what can you expect?

2. If your MLBlog were any baseball player past or present, who would he be and why?

Donnie Baseball. Hard-nosed, with a flair for the dramatic who loved a good win and played to win.

3. How did you first hear about MLBlogs and why did you join The Show?

I saw an ad on www.yankees.com and decided that the voice of a real Yankee fan needed to be heard.

4. Favorite blogs of any kind, including at least one in the MLBlogosphere?

Mile High Yankees and Baseball and the Boogie Down Bronx are my two favorites. Thanks and a shout out to all the people who have left comments on my blog, I do this for y’all!

5. What was your most memorable post and why?

To me, the post that I left on 6/6 after the now-infamous Melky catch against the Sox.

6. What is something not on your About page that MLBloggers should know about you?

That I really love chicken. I can eat the stuff seven days a week. There are so many ways of preparing the stuff, you can never get tired of it!

7. Everyone’s talking about "Web 2.0." What is your vision for baseball and fan content/interaction?

Blogging is defintely a first step into what the Web can truly be. My vision would consist of real-time interaction with broadcasts, and really putting the game in the hands of the fans. Baseball coverage has consisted of what we read, see on TV, and what we hear on the radio. Fans are the ones who pay salaries, cheer on their favorite players, and live and die with their team. MLB is becoming more fan-driven, and Web 2.0 can definitely give the fan next door the voice he/she needs.

8. What does baseball mean to you?

Baseball is life. Ive been playing soccer and baseball for all my life, and baseball is something that definitely has ingrained itself into the American Consciousness. We have been playing the sport for almost 200 years and it has brought so many people together, no matter what team you support.  The WBC was definitely a huge step in the globalization of the game, and I know that in a matter of years baseball will be as popular as soccer and cricket are in the rest of the world.

9. Happiness is…

Sitting in Yankee Stadium with my fiancee Stephanie, hearing Bob Shepard announce player names and listening to the Bleacher Creature Roll Call, all with a cold beer in my hand. Or, doing the same from home when I’m not at the Stadium. Hopefully I can share that with my kids when the new Yankee Stadium opens!

Tell Felix what you think of his posts and drop him some chicken recipes while you’re there! And if you’d like to be a Spheroid like him so more people can find out about your MLBlog, just email us at mlblogosphere@yahoo.com so we can line you up!

Welcome to MLBlogs, Felix. Nice spheroid!

Myself, I favor a nice curry chicken, not terribly hot, w/ sliced onion, bell pepper, peas,carrots. Maybe a medium garam masala(coriander, pepper, cardamom, cinnamon, kalonji, cloves, ginger and nutmeg)….ahhhh.

Steamed Chicken w/ Mixed Veggies hold the sauce.

Gimme some yellow rice and chicken with black beans and chili peppers in a big pot and I’m in some bueno Cuban heaven. Felix has got everyone hungry here now!

I could eat chicken 7 days a week too!

I also grew up in the Bronx! Is there something about the Bronx that makes us love to eat Chicken?
