Hi, I’m Tim. I’m a bit of a sports nut. Football, Rugby, American Football… I’ll give pretty much anything a chance. Unfortunately, my ability to play these sports doesn’t match my ability to talk about them. I used to find that I’d have a lot of views about what was going on in the sporting world, but no-one to discuss them with, so felt starting Eyes on the Ball would be the perfect way to stop my brain from exploding!
I’ve been a fan of the NFL since my early teens, as a group of us guys at school really got into the Madden games. Having family living in America, I had memories of watching the Tennessee Titans on TV when I went over to visit, so as I began to enjoy the game they naturally became my team of choice as it looked like that was the family team… It turned out the US-based family are Cowboys fans, but it was too late by then!
Besides sports, I am a huge fan of Star Wars and have started a second blog to focus on that: The Canon Padawan. I am also a huge fan of a show called the Movie Trivia Schmoedown on YouTube – which I found through my Star Wars fandom – and I also plan to write about that on here. More recently, I have also started writing on the Schmoedown’s official website – triviasd.com
