Pleased to Meet Me: Community Census!

Hi everyone.  So, last season right around opening day we did an intro post where everyone in the community had the opportunity to introduce him or herself.  It worked out well so we thought we'd do the same this season.  And the post also functions to introduce our newest Bluebird Banter overlord, JohnnyG.  Obviously you all know Johnny from his pithy comments and now-famous Blue Jay Jeopardy! fanpost.  He'll be helping us out with the game threads and other things this season.  Without further adeiu:

Stepping to the Plate/Coming out of the bullpen Music: Bit of a problem here. Not sure. Most of music doesn't work for this type of thing.... something fast and loud. Some Linkin Park maybe.

Favourite Baseball Movie: Hmmm... Tough. Gotta love Major League.... Bull Durham... Field of Dreams.... you know I am not sure I can pick just one.
Major Leaguer My Little League Career Most Resembled: Last year I said I wasn't good enough.... but really I think it is like John MacDonald with slightly less glove. I was always much better in the field then at the plate but I was never Johnny Mac good.
