10 things you didn't know about Samit Sarkar

Holy crap, I have a c-blog!

I'm not gonna lie -- I kinda didn't want to do one of these blogs. I've been tagged by at least four different people on Facebook for one of those goddamn "25 things" notes, and I flat-out refuse to do one. But since this is only 10 things, I'll make a special exception for you, the Destructoid Community. And yes, I know I'm late to the party, but I wasn't finished with this last night. Sue me.

Obviously, some of you may already know one or more of the following facts about me, but that's just the way the cookie crumbles. Sorry.

1) Before I became an editor here at Destructoid, I went by 'BrOnXbOmBr21' on the site (and pretty much everywhere else on the internet). In fact, that's my username on the forums. I came up with it when I was in tenth grade. Here's what it comes from: I'm a huge New York Yankees fan, and the team's nickname is "the Bronx Bombers." As for the number, well, on the Yankees of the mid- to late-nineties, right fielder Paul O'Neill was one of my favorite players; his number was 21. I have no idea why I decided to go with the ridiculous alternate capitalization -- it's so childish -- but now, I can type "BrOnXbOmBr21" unbelievably quickly, since I've been doing it for seven years or so.
