Up close with N.O. owner wetherjenius
I recently got a chance to sit down with longtime Puckett member wetherjenius who's in his 11th year after taking over in the 4th season. He's compiled a 833
-851 record during that time and has reached the post-season twice.
1.) With a name like wetherjenius, are you a meteorologist?
No, I'm not a meteorologist. I'm a college student, but I'm been a meteorology nerd since I was about 5. I'm majoring in Political Science though, so its never gone past a hobby, really.
2.) Hockey being your favorite sport, who's your team? Who's taking the Stanley Cup home this year?
I'm a Ranger fan, diehard. The Red Wings are so damn smooth. I think they are going to win again.
3.) You've had some success at the FC Dynasty game, how is the FC Dynasty game?
It was fun for a while. Now I'm just bored of it. Heck, I haven't checked that thing in about 2 months. Is my team still winning?
4.) How has the move to N.O. affected your club?
I don't think it has affected it positively, really. I'm an owner who prefers pitchers parks, so it's an adjustment. But, it has boosted Cardona as a player like crazy.
5.) Whats your best sports moment? Best in-person sports moment?
Oh jeez... I'm a Mets, Jets, Knicks, and Rangers fan, so I really haven't had much to cheer about in my lifetime. But Beating the Patriots this year was pretty damn awesome. In person, its gotta be attending a Rangers playoff game. Nothing like a Rangers playoff game.
6.) Who will meet in the world series this year and who will take it all?
Oh I don't know. Braves and Rangers. Rangers in 6. I want this so that teams starts allowing their starters to throw more innings.
7.) If you could have one real life player in MLB transferred to your new team, who would that be and why?
Joe Mauer, hands down. If he was in HBD, he'd be like 100 contact, 100 vs. L, 100 vs. R, and 90 pitch calling. I'm down for that any day. Hes essentially that Willams guy I traded for from ACE a few seasons back, and who Dami has now. He was by far my favorite HBD player I've ever had.
8.) If you could sit at a poker table or play a round of golf with 3 other people who would they be and why?
Jim Cantore, because hes the coolest weatherman of all time, Hayden Pantierre because shes so damn cute, and Mikhail Akerfeldt, because I love Opeth. The man is a musical genius.
9.) What do you do in your spare time when you're not running your HBD teams?
I'm a college student, in my 3rd year. I'm on the dating scene, going out with someone now. Shes cute, not gonna lie. I'm also a full time Jew, so I keep kosher food and all that jazz.
10.) If there was one thing you could add/change about HBD, what would that be?
In-game position changes. It frustrates me that its taken them this long to implement them.
