I've been a broadcaster on The Shark since 2002! For the past few years I've been teamed with Jonathan on The Shark Morning Show from 5:30 a.m. until the end of the music marathon known as The Workday Kickoff. If I don't go to Las Vegas at least every six months, I begin to wilt. About 10 days a year I play craps, slots and 3-Card Poker there with short breaks during which I make sports bets and eat mountains of food. I'm passionate about Boston sports, and I'm very lucky to be the morning sports guy on your home for New England Patriots football! I also love Twitter because I can instantly post a joke or my fiery disapproval about something before the moment passes and I forget about it entirely. Follow me @Gonictrain on Twitter, and there's a real good chance I'll follow you back.
