My self-summary
I am Dan. I love games, sports, kayaking, hiking, running (sometimes, love/hate relationship), the ocean, animals (especially dogs), and astronomy. Also write a lot, mostly reviews, sports "think-pieces" (since I almost always have a much different/more human perspective towards athletes and sports culture), and the occasional short story.

Love trying new beers, being inside watching television, going outside to be on a lake or on top of a mountain, chilling with siblings or friends playing games, and the rare opportunity to travel.

Big believer in "treat others as you wish to be treated." Try to be as understanding and compassionate as possible. Pretty open and accepting, and willing to try a lot, but I also totally know where I draw my own personal boundaries.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Why do people pronounce it "ree-cee's pee-cee's"? It already rhymes if you say it correctly!

How, after all this concussion nonsense, is the NFL still so damn popular?

I think a lot about the ways people view sports.

Is Shark Week actually good for sharks?
On a typical Friday night I am
Lately, probably at home or at a bar reading about one of the Presidents. Pretty obsessed with them lately.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I own two onesies. One is a normal one. The other looks like a shark. They're super comfortable.
You should message me if
You want someone to grab a drink and chat with, or to see a movie with, or to just chill in some other capacity, and something here made you think I'd be someone you'd want to do those things with.

Or you want to engage in a pun battle. I make a lot of bad/punny/goofy jokes.

Might be worth mentioning that I can't really see "likes" because apparently that's a paid option. Shoot me a message if ya want! I'm pretty responsive.
