I spend a lot of time at Wolf Pack games and watch the 49ers pretty much every week on TV, even when they suck. True fanship is about dedication through thick and thin, not being a front-runner. I like baseball too, and seriously, what's better than going to an Aces game with some friends on a warm summer night? Sports are a big part of my life and I like hanging out with buddies and other fans.
I've been flying radio controlled airplanes for almost as long as I can remember. My dad got me into it at a very early age. It's always been one of my ways to unwind. It may not be quite the same as actually being in the airplane, but I get to do stunts that people would be crazy to try in real airplanes without the danger.
I picked up golf a few years back and am really digging it. I also just bought some snazzy new skis and I'm looking forward to trying those out this winter. Snowsports are lots of fun, but so is sitting around the fire with some drinks after a day on the slopes.
I love games, too -- board games, video games, trivia games at the bar -- whatever. But when it comes to dating, I don't believe in playing games, and don't care for women that play them. People should be honest & straightforward and allow things to happen naturally.
I'm also an avid fly fisherman, old school catch-and-release. One of my favorite things in the world is just getting out there on the river and relaxing in the peace and quiet. It's a magical, zen-like experience. Sometimes I catch fish and sometimes I don't, but to me it's an activity that's about something far deeper. There's a lot of natural beauty and awesomeness in Northern Nevada and it's what I love most about living here.
I wouldn't quite call myself a romantic, certainly not in the emo-poet or romantic-comedy-hero sense, but I believe deeply in a classic notion of chivalry. I'm the kind of guy that holds doors open for women and feel that men should pay for dinner and expect nothing in return.
Anyway, as I said, a lot like Northern Nevada.
