Growing up I was as much in to computers and electronics as I was in to sports.  The local Radioshack knew by name.  Every Christmas I would get the 200 in 1 project kits.  I read the DOS owner manuals cover to cover. I also played football, soccer, baseball, wrestling, basketball, and track and field.  In high school I was part of a State Championship football team.  I also was a 2 time State qualifier in wrestling.
