Howdy, Hoppers Fans, this is Greg with an announcement! As I mentioned in my post from earlier today, while I’m not going to be writing as many blog entries this year as I have in the past, this blog for the Hoppers Fans and it is going to keep going on. To help with that, I’m extremely excited to announce that my friend Jordan Stowe is going to be pitching in with some of the blogging duties.
Without further ado, allow me to let him introduce himself:
Hey guys, gals, and fellow Hopper fans! Let me first start by introducing myself. My name is Jordan Stowe, I’m a longtime Greensboro Baseball fan. I remember the good ol’ days back at War Memorial when Greensboro Baseball was a NY Yankee farm system. I am an avid sports collector and lover of all things sports… except hockey. Just not a fan. I am a newlywed, my wife and I have been married a little over a year and we have a cute little doggy named Sadie, and I guess I’ll mention that other little thing that purrs… my WIFE’s cat Roxy… (NOT A FAN EITHER). Our first date was at a Greensboro Grasshopper game back in 2008. We are residents here in Greensboro. Also, I have a great passion for photography. So, I’ll be the man behind the lens for most pictures seen here in this blog.
I will be tag teaming these blogs with Greg occasionally. Greg and I met during last season as we both shared our love for BISCUITs at the away game in Kannapolis. We picked one lucky person on the Intimidator squad to be the Biscuitville strikeout victim. We were the only ones screaming for biscuits, but it sure was fun!
I echo the sentiments heard all around the ballpark these days…. ITS A GREAT TIME TO BE A HOPPER!
Jordan’s a great guy and I love hanging out with him at the games. Like he mentioned, he’s got a passion for photography. I’ve seen some of the pictures he’s taken so far this year and they’re great! We’re looking forward to sharing them on the blog, so keep your eyes open. He’ll start writing some blog entries soon, so be sure to give him a warm welcome!
As I’m able to make it out to the games, I’ll keep writing blog entries. It’s really exciting to have Jordan on board to help shoulder the work. We’re both new at writing a “tag team” or “group” blog, so please bear with us as we work out the kinks. We’ll try to make sure to identify who’s writing what to help keep the confusion to a minimum.
Welcome aboard, Jordan — I’m glad you’re here!
