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|
Louis Armstrong (1901–1971) was an American jazz trumpeter and singer. Born into poverty in New Orleans, he developed his trumpet- and cornet-playing skills in a variety of locations, including dance halls and a juvenile detention center. In the 1920s, he gained prominence playing in Chicago and New York, where he was recognized for his inventive playing style and gravelly vocals. He remained active until his death, performing in hundreds of gigs a year, appearing in multiple films and television shows, and releasing his greatest hit, "Hello, Dolly!", in 1964.
