Hi, I’m Marc Morehouse. I’ve covered sports for more than 15 years, mostly in Eastern Iowa. I’ve had Hayden Fry call me “Mike.” I’ve had Chad Greenway call me “Mr.” And Kirk Ferentz will occasionally call me “bleep.” (Kidding, kidding.) I’ve covered the Super Bowl, Orange Bowl and Iowa’s 49-3 loss at Michigan State in ’99. I like sports and actually still play some sports, though the trained eye would call my hockey ice dancing at this point. I play golf, poorly, but thoroughly enjoy the sport (read drinking beer afterward). I fish a little. I read books and really miss “The Sopranos” and “Deadwood.” I listen to music, with the Flying Burrito Brothers, the Pernice Brothers, Wilco and the Drive-By Truckers among my faves. I’ve been married for 1,028 years. My wife, you know her as BadgerLover4 on the messageboards, is from Wisconsin, attended the UW and is in her 1,029th semester in pursuit of a PhD at the University of Iowa. I have a diva-in-waiting entering middle school. I have a 9-year-old boy who wears his Aaron Kampman jersey (it’s the AK Packers) to bed. I love Cedar Rapids. Today it smells like Crunch Berries. Tomorrow, who knows. Maybe boiled chicken.
I have fun with the blog. I’ve made some great connections with a few readers and hope to continue that. Ultimately, I want to know what you want to know.
Thanks for reading.
