Brandon Rowe

Name: Brandon Rowe

When you aren’t obsessing over sports stats or your fantasy line up, you are _____. (ie. A dentist).

Studying at York University and Seneca College

Favourite sport?
Hands down it has to be football. We have had a love/hate relationship throughout my years on the gridiron, but I really feel it’s the greatest game on earth

Favourite sports moment?
Personally it would have to be starting on a CIS roster and playing with and against future CFL stars. The moment that still gives me goosebumps is witnessing Usaine Bolt crush the 100m record live on TV

Favourite athlete?
My favorite athlete is Allen Iverson. As a short guy I feel like Iverson repped us little guys to the fullest. He truly left it all on the court every time he laced up his reeboks. Plus who can forget the man broke Jordan’s ankles.

Favourite teams?
Well I have a favorite team for every sport pretty much, but the Hamilton TigerCats have a special place in my heart. Being from Hamilton and going to the games I just love the atmosphere and the diehard fans that live in the hammer. When the Cats are playing at Ivor Wynne the city truly shuts down. “Oskee Wee Wee”

Do you like long walks on the beach?
I actually haven’t taken a long walk on the beach before, but if you know anyone that’s looking for someone to take them I’m your guy

Jordan or LeBron?
Jordan!!!! I don’t think I really need to explain the stats speak for itself.

Gretzky or Orr or Crosby?
Both Gretzky and Orr are pioneers in the sport, but I always hated playing at Gretzky sport complex during my pee wee football days so I’ll go with Orr.

P.Manning or Brady?
Tom Brady is a winner, and his wife is a smokeshow this is a no brainer.

Ruth or Mays? Guess I’ll go with Babe Ruth I haven’t tried a Wille Mays before. (We’re talking about chocolate bars right?)

You would sell your __ for Super bowl/World Cup/ Stanley Cup/ NBA Championship/ World Series.
My little sister to go watch the Super Bowl. Just cause she’s currently bothering me right now

Why are you a Model Sports Fan?
I think I’m a model sports fan because I have pretty much played every sport at a competitive level so I know what’s going through athletes minds for the most part. I just love sports not just the stats part of it but the story. I think the journalism has taught me to be inquisitive and I think that’s a key aspect of being a sports fan. Now I just have to get the “model” part down.
