About Me and The Blog

Hey, viewers of my blog! My name is Nick, I live in Melbourne, I have a Twitter account (@NickTheStatsGuy), and I’m a bit of a sports nut. I also run a micronation called Førvania, which you can learn about here and here. Feel free to contact me, I’ll reply as soon as I can, unless you’re a Hawthorn supporter 😉

So far in my sports journalist career, I’ve:

  • Had Dennis Freedman mention me on Twitter multiple times:
    You will not believe how happy this made me.
    My first mention for anything.
    I got four Twitter followers in the thirty seconds after he posted this.
    My god, is he serious?
  • Been on 774 ABC Melbourne! (Admittedly, it wasn’t about sports, I just called in on September 1, 2015 because Red Symons was asking for complaints. I called in because my digital radio ran out of battery, and I had to listen to 774 on a poor connection.)
