What makes you, you?

Hey guys I thought this would be a cool idea to share somethings about ourselves with the rest of the forum. With spring training starting this week and MLB 20 dropping in a little over a month I figured it's a perfect time as new or returning players start revisiting (or visit for the first time). I'll set a basic format below, feel free to share whatever you like!

Nice try, you aren’t getting my data that easily Google bot.

Since I started the topic I'll go first.

Age: 27
Favorite team: Rockies
Player: Trevor Story
FBM: Charlie Blackmon signing my glove at my first game ever at Coors.

First year: MLB 09 was my first year of TS

EPB?: Played from years 6 to 20. Had a shot at the minor leagues but i refused surgery in my shoulder, couldn't afford it.

Movie: The Sandlot, imo this should be everyone's answer.
PoY: I'll throw one in later

I have a decent sized Trevor Story collection going on. Have his Jersey, plans to get it autographed whenever he's doing signings in Denver. Also currently have about 3 autographed cards, plus several other rare ones of his. Recently purchased a bat with his signature on it as well (Thanks btw). But yeah I'm mostly known as the guy who would leave his wife for Trevor Story, or that's how my wife puts it.

After everything that’s happened you’re still willing to say Bregman is your favorite current player huh?

The line directly preceding it should answer that question.
