Tec: Tell us a little about yourself.
Bjschumacher: Been a structural engineer since 1982. Recently started my own structural engineering firm. I have a loving wife, 3 grown sons, and one grand daughter. Live in eastern Iowa. Fan of the Iowa State Cyclones, along with the Kansas City and Chicago professional sports franchises.
Bjschumacher: Stock trading, golf, home brewing, Hawaii.
Bjschumacher: Some baseball and football, but not good enough to carry it into high school. Tiddlywinks - does that count?.
Tec: Who are your favorite all-time players?
Bjschumacher: Wow, tough one. Always loved watching the Chiefs and Royals growing up, so Len Dawson, Otis Taylor, Buck Buchanan, Willie Lanier, Fred Patek, Amos Otis, Lou Piniella, George Brett, just to name a few. Oh, and have the ultimate respect for the late Walter Payton. The Fridge - not so much.
|Leon Durham muffs it|
Bjschumacher: Watching the Royals win Game 5 in St Louis in the 1985 World Series. Also will never forget the Cubs blowing a 2-0 game lead in the 1984 National League series to the Padres. Leon Durham, right though the legs ala Bill Buckner. And following the Bears in their 1985 1-loss Super Bowl season. Damn Dolphins.
Bjschumacher: Obviously raising my 3 boys, and my wedding day. Got way too drunk the night before, and almost missed it.
Bjschumacher: Statistician would be my best position. Love building spreadsheets and crunching numbers.
