About Armchair Athlete

This page was initially started by my wife who understood the internet software programs better than I did.  Over time I learned the software and now this page is currently run and updated by myself.  My wife takes the credit for finally getting me to put this page together after two years of talking about it.  The efforts I put into sports handicapping have come from many years of handicapping football games.  I guess you could say it is my number one hobby, and has been since the early 1970s when I was in high school.  Back in those days I used statistical analysis for predicting the outcomes of both college and pro football games.  This continued through college and into my career as an engineer.  Needless to say, the advent of the personal computer has definitely made the analysis of statistics much, much easier.  I used to spend hours crunching numbers with my calculator back in the 70s, now I type in the data and push a couple of buttons and I can analyze hundreds of games in a very short period of time.  Of course it is more complicated than that as one has to know what statistics are pertinent to a teams performance.

At the moment I am employed in the engineering field and my wife is a stay at home mom taking care of our children.  I have often thought what it would be like to be able to work in a field that I would thoroughly enjoy doing, following sporting events while providing a handicapping service for them.  My primary interest in handicapping has been in professional football, but I have interests in other sports as well.

This web page is my initial effort in realizing my goal.  I know from my own experiences that if one does not start somewhere, the end result will never be realized.  I also know it will not be an easy effort and will take quite a bit of time and effort (if it was easy, everybody would be doing it).  I am also not expecting an overnight success as the competition is keen.  My initial goal is to create a web page that is focused on sports handicapping that readers will find informative and entertaining.
