I love sports more than I probably should. In particular, and to my detriment, I’m a fan of the Toronto Maple Leafs, the Minnesota Vikings, the Toronto Blue Jays, and Manchester United (alright, so United’s treated me well – but those other three…). During undergrad I became preoccupied with the nexus between sport, society, and culture, but since then I’ve focused more on being a fan. Stuff and Nonsense used to be pretty sports-heavy. I’ve dialed it back in recent years, but I’ll still write occasionally about my favourite teams.
I blew my ACL in 2013, which derailed my budding career as a long-distance runner (I compounded that initial injury by tearing the same knee again later in the year). My knee injuries more-or-less ended my soccer and Ultimate careers, but I’m still an active biker and HIIT trainee. I’m also working towards becoming a certified soccer coach.
