Hi! I’m Emily.
I’ve spent most of my life in Kansas, either in Lawrence or the suburbs outside of Kansas City. This state drives me crazy (looking at you, Brownback) but it will always be home.
This may come as a genuine surprise to some, but I really do love sports. I grew up rooting for the Kansas Jayhawks. KU will forever be my first and truest love. Some of my most vivid memories are from watching football games at Memorial Stadium and basketball games at Allen Fieldhouse, usually while creating chants for my favorite players. If you ask nicely, I may even show you my Jeff Boschee chant.
I’ve never been much of an athlete. I have a competitive side a mile wide, but lack the necessary coordination to be successful. But I’ve always loved the community that’s built around sports. No matter your team or your sport of choice, you will always find a group that gets you and will be happy to have you in their ranks.
