Born and raised in Central New York, zine writer and all around pop culture fanatic Mark Hughson knows both the joys of success (the contending Oakland A's are his favorite team) and failure (the annual basement dwellers Syracuse SkyChiefs are the local ball club).  He holds the local church league's record for most ground-outs to second.
