Who is Stank-0

Filed under: by:

I am Stank-0 and Stank-0 is every intelligent sports fan. Ok that was too high minded and cliched.  The name comes from a rap album and I first used the name back in 2005 when I covered my flag football league anonymously.  At that point, I wrote as S.O.  The forum members seemed to like what I wrote and that's what got me into blogging.  I started this here blog once before but it was deleted due to an unfortunate mishap.  I restarted and this is the current version. 

I am the founder and primary writer for this space.  I am a KC Chiefs and Royals fan, Jayhawks fan (alumni stand up!), and Capitals fan.  As a true fan of these teams, I have nothing but absolute and total contempt for the Broncos, Raiders, University of Missouri and the rest of the AL Central.  As evidence by my twitter, (follow me be warned I may not be for you) I consume and am interested in alot more things than sports.  

I am a sports analyst.  I tend to look at sports on an abstract level.  A game is not just about what's going on on the field, diamond, court, etc. It's about seeing what worked 4, 5, 6 plays ago and hoping that the coordinators both saw it and plan to use it again. It's about wishing the damn NFL camera crews would STOP following the ball because alot of things are happening on the backside of the play that we need to see. It's about wondering why Gus Johnson doesn't get to call more primetime NFL games or the National Championship game.

I recognize that to be a fan right now is unprecedented.  There are athletic giants and cerebral assassins everywhere and to be able to watch them night in and night out is truly something special.
