Hey everyone,

First off, a HUGE thank you to those who have sponsored our league to add broadcasting content. It is much appreciated, and I am hoping to provide a little more shortly (Gotta put kids & wife first though). 

As a firm believer in presentation and content, I wanted to create a thread that will give our broadcasting teams the ability to get to know the drivers that are behind the wheels. It should be appropriate, it should be something you think you add value and depth to our league, and personalize the experience while giving the broadcasting team additional material to work with on their end.

Things I feel add value:

- Nicknames:
- How long you've Sim Raced:
- Where you're from: (The broadcasters were guessing on a few of our drivers last week)
- How old you are:
- Profession
- Relationship and parental status
- Other interesting facts about you:

This is only optional, of course! But I'd like to encourage people to consider help maximize the presentation of our league! :)

Thanks to all who help!

LB

I'll go first!

Name: James LeBlond

Nickname: "LB" or "The Commish"

Why did I choose the #77 car? My last sports hero was the great hockey defenseman Raymond Bourque.

What other interests do you have? I also play in an eSports based hockey league and play Left Defense, wearing #77.

Where am I from: Biddeford, Maine USA

How old am I: 45

How long have I SimRaced: Began on Father's Day in 2017.

Other interesting facts: I have been self-employed for 13 years, a Father of 5 kids, been gaming since I was 4, and been a faithful fan of New England sports teams going back to when they also sucked. I stream all my content on a Twitch channel dedicated to Fluffy Kitty Ninjas. I'm also not afraid to say I like pineapple on my pizza from time to time.

Who's next!? :)

Drivers,

This thread is great, and something that many of our series do to help us out.

Please keep up the info, but what is even more helpful is if a league member could collect all this info and put it in a google sheet, sorted by alphabetical order.

That way, during the broadcast, the commentators can keep that window open, and have quick access to the information.

All the stories DO NOT need to be posted on the spread sheet. The GSRC commentators will monitor this thread for all the details.

But if the spreadsheet had simple info to reference at a glance

Drivers Name

Nick Name

Age and Profession 
---"You're looking at Okey Stokenburger, the 34 year old mailman.

Relationship and Parental Status
---"You're looking at Okey Stokenburger, the 34 father of two boys"
---"Okey Stokenburger ishoping to win this for his new girl freind, Sally"
.
Home Town & Current Location (where a driver is from is as interesting as the current location)
---"There is Okey Stokenburger, born on an Antarctica Science Station and now hailing from Rome"

Hobbies or Talents
---"Up to 3rd goes Okey Stokenburger, the semi profession bongo player"


So inconclusions
Details here in the forum
Highlights on the spread sheet.

Thanks, and even if no spread sheet is created, keep the info coming here

How long you've Sim Raced:
Off and on since 2014

Where you're from:
Born and raised in Charleston, SC. Lived in Atlanta, GA for several years while attending the Art Institute of Atlanta. 
Currently in Knoxville, TN

How old you are:
37 (DOB: June 5th, 1980)

Profession:
Owner of Studio Rhoad: A marketing agency for the automotive market

Relationship and parental status:
Engaged with 2 girls (14 y/o and 13 y/o). My fiance and I met 12 years ago on a drifting forum.

Other interesting facts about you:
Owned and operated the Formula Drift feeder series during the mid 2000's
My real life track car is a Toyota AE86 GT-S 
I love wine, Ayrton Senna and Thrash Metal (music)

Short Story:
As an entrepreneur I have always admired John Paul DeJoria (Owner of Tequila Patrón and Paul Mitchell Professional Haircare). Through various connections, we found ourselves working with the Patrón NHRA Drag Racing team. Over the course of 5 years we worked directly with the team. Ultimately, in the last couple years of our relationship, that led us to working directly with Tequila Patrón and my idol, John Paul DeJoria. As a bonus, Jesse James (West Coast Choppers) also worked on the team as his wife piloted the Funny Car.
Moral of the story - By paying forward and working hard, one can enjoy tequila shots with a billionaire.
