Matthew Friedman / Matt

From birth, I thought I was Superman, but as I gained a conscious awareness that I was NOT Superman, I began to grow a strong liking towards those who resembled Superman most (athletes). That basically describes it. Or maybe it's all those hours of endless sports events watching, gaining education in the Sports Administration field, and getting employed in an athletics profession. Or maybe it's those night when I used to lace up my sneakers, boots, skates, cleats, etc., and pretend I was my favorite player, from my favorite team. Or maybe it's the times when I would try to mimic the athletes' play, even down to how they chewed gum. But you tell me...a real sports fan does what he has to, to be [pretending like he is] the best.
