I am a Geek.
And no that is not a bad thing. It is a great thing. A wonderful thing.
Geek: noun\ˈgēk\: a person who is very interested in and knows a lot about a particular field or activity
I was the kid talking about comics, then drawing them and writing them. That makes me a geek.
I also devoured every book I could get my hands on. From Stephen King to Jules Verne, from Raymond Chandler to Robert E. Howard, from Tim Dorsey to Sir Terry Pratchett. That makes me a geek.
In the spring I dive headfirst into the NFL Scouting Combine and pro days and free agency leading right up to all seven rounds of the NFL Draft. That makes me a geek.
We are all geeks. We all have things that we love. We obsess about. Things that matter. They surround us, support us, they create us in a million little ways.
Cherish them. Breathe life into them.
They build our worlds.
I am One True Geek.
And this is one geek world.
