Hi, I'm Chris. I play the accordion and enjoy watching terrible sports teams. I was born in Colorado to parents from the boonies of Upstate NY. I was mostly an upstate NY sports kid before the Rockies, Rapids and Avalanche came to Denver. That has left me cheering for colorful selection of sports teams, all of which are terrible. I used to run Burgundy Wave because there was nobody else on the internet willing to start a Rapids blog in mid-2010 and I'm still amazed I found someone to take it over from me.
