My site's URL is taken from a terrible ESPN2 reality show that I was briefly obsessed with during freshman year of high school. On a network that regularly shows professional poker, rock/paper/scissors tournaments and Stump the Schwab, Beg, Borrow & Deal only hung around for two inglorious seasons. Basically, the contestants would travel around America trying to complete sports-related tasks (for example, throwing out the first pitch at a Minor League Baseball game) by begging, borrowing, and dealing. I chose the title because I'll probably wind up using these skills
a lot during my travels.
