User:The Kardiac Kid
I'm called Michael Burton and I was born and grew up in a town in southeastern England called Eastbourne. It's like the British version of Florida, but with only the retired old people and no theme parks for anyone over twelve. I now live in Bradford in Yorkshire, and actually quite like it. It is a bit run down, but has a nice charm of it's own. I am a proud Englishman, but am also proudly Australian due to my mother being so. This can be annoying for Rugby League internationals!
My User Name Explained
My name comes from my beloved Cleveland Browns NFL team, who in 1980 were dubbed 'The Kardiac Kids' due to their ability to win almost every game inside the last two minutes of the fourth quarter. Kardiac is spelt with a 'K' instead of a 'C' because of this.
Editing and Articles Started
When I edit on here, it's mainly articles to do with sport that catch my attention. I have started an article about Shafik Asaad, a former Arab member of the Knesset. Most non-sport related stuff I do edit usually comes while I'm writing an essay at University. (University of Bradford) Asaad wasn't on here, so I started the article with the information I had acquired during research. Killing time, but also adding to my knowledge. Helpful that.
I have started to update nations competing at the Manchester Commonwealth Games, starting with Jamaica, Saint Lucia, Uganda, Vanuatu and Zambia I have also started articles on Swindon St George Rugby League Club and Guildford Giants Rugby League Football Club. They are both stubs, but do add to the Rugby League Conference pages.
|Picture of the day|
Ambrose Burnside (1824–1881) was an American soldier and politician from Rhode Island, serving as governor and a United States Senator. As a Union Army general in the American Civil War, he conducted successful campaigns in North Carolina and East Tennessee and countered the raids of Confederate General John Hunt Morgan, but suffered disastrous defeats at the Battles of Fredericksburg and the Crater. His distinctive style of facial hair became known as sideburns, a term derived from his last name.
