Launched in March 2021, stogiesandfootball.sport.blog is just a guy that enjoys smoking stogies, watching football and talking about both.
In addition to breaking down player, coaches and league news and headlines I will provide my opinions, humor and insight on each topic. I am also a 2 time fantasy league champion and commissioner of a 14 team fantasy football league (we’ve been playing since 2016), so I will offer my insight here as well. I will mostly talk about the NFL, but I may occasionally post about college football too.
My NFL team is the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and I have been a fan since the Tony Dungy and Monte Kiffin years led by a top 5 defense of all time by Derrrick Brooks, Warren Sapp, Ronde Barber, Simeon Rice, and John Lynch. However, my favorite player was the “A-Train”, Mike Alstott. But now Mike Evans is my current favorite player and in my opinion the best WR in the league, (stats don’t lie), he’s the only player in NFL history to have 1,000 yards or more in each of his first 7 seasons (record formally held by HOFer Randy Moss with 6).
My college football team of choice is the Notre Dame Fighting Irish. Living in Ohio my entire life, I found it painfully difficult to root for any Ohio team, both pro and college. I became a die hard fan during the Brady Quinn and Jeff Samardzija era. I was never a Charlie Weis fan, and I wouldn’t call myself a Brian Kelly fan either. But I do think Kelly has helped ND crawl back to relevancy and into the national spotlight, but he may have taken ND as far as he can.
