Brandon Kamerman

I'm colorblind, I love turtles and I had tickets to the Cubs' 2003 World Series. I used to play "old-school fantasy sports" where my brother and I would put baseball cards up against each other. The victor was whoever won more categories on the back of the card. That was the gateway drug to my 20 years of fantasy obsession.
