Steve Crothers

AKA Bulldog

ARE YOU PRESS?

Hello and welcome, Allow me to introduce myself My name is Steve Crothers, better known to my friends as Bulldog. I had many nicknames in my life but this is the one that stuck. I was also known as Crunch, Capt. Crunch, Rock and a few I cannot repeat. Bulldog came about because I was told I resembled a Bulldog in my 4 point stance. I loved it as I have always been a fan of the USMC and their mascot. Tough and mean.

 

I have always been a jock. I started playing sports when I was old enough to do so. I have played football, baseball, basketball, wrestled and softball. I played softball for 25 years and played all over the Western United States. I am a Southern California sports guy. Rams, Chargers, Lakers, Angels but my true love is baseball and my Los Angeles Dodgers. Blue Heaven on Earth is my favorite place to be.

 

I went to Edison High School in Huntington Beach, CA where I played football and wrestled. I garnered first team All League and first team All Orange County in football and the same in wrestling. I LOVE to talk sports, probably why I am single.

 

Is there a better way to make new friends than to talk sports? Have a topic? Want to talk sports? Ring me up and come on in and grab a bone. Strangers as it is said, are only friends I haven’t met yet.
