Jon, it’s really a multipurpose name
There are lots of great people named John (Johnny, Jack, or Jon): John Kennedy, John Lennon, Johnny Depp, John Williams, John the Baptist, and Lil John to name only six. So why does the name get dragged through the mud? Why hasn’t the existence of such famous Johns conferred some sort of venerability, or at least respect upon this old name? Why do we insist on calling toilets “Johns”? or men that proffer services from prostitutes “Johns”?
Anyhow, my name is Jon. I like collecting things like guitars, comic books, hockey cards and cats. I currently make a living working as a writer for the government and moonlighting as a writer for a couple of hockey magazines.
I’m the father of two great boys, one of whom has a better grasp on the English language than the other, and the husband of one very lucky woman.
I’m not athletic in the least, but I am a willful participant in everything that goes along with watching sporting events (beer, food, that sort of thing). As far as stereotypes go, I’m the loud guy with the beer helmet that makes a lot of comments.
In the interest of full disclosure, I belong to the demographic between the ages of 25 and 43 (see this, and do the math for a more accurate assessment of where I fall age wise).
All of the writing on this blog, from overpaid baseball players to book reviews, will be about things that interest me. That said, if something in particular interests you, let me know. Maybe it will interest me as well. Besides I want to be your friend (but not in a creepy way).
