Scott is a pediatrician and father of two active boys (who he is teaching to say "American football" for the pointy ball sport). His love affair with the Union began while stationed in Italy with the Navy where his first memories of the team invariably include streaming games at 3am or cursing a buffering icon. He is still active in local men's soccer and very happy to be recently promoted to the OVER 35 leagues! You can follow him @spugger77
