Introduction I'm beer drinker with a pick-up basketball problem living in Westbrook, Maine. I have a goal: to represent Maine by playing basketball in the Maine Senior Games. The games take place in the summer of 2012. I'm 56, fat, and unskilled, I have a lot of work to do to achieve my goal. This blog will document my progress. Because I can't help myself, I'll stray into other topics important to me: beer, music, hops, movies, malt, the Red Sox, yeast, and life itself.
Interests Basketball, indoor rowing, Kettlebells, beer, reading and writing, sports on tv, local taverns, The Boston Red Sox, Japan, food: sushi, ramen, Thai, everything but lima beans and turnip.
Favorite Movies Chinatown, Hoosiers, Breaking Away, The Godfather, Year of Living Dangerously, Missing
