Originally from Kansas City, David Vranicar spent three years living in China, Denmark and the Netherlands. Still, there is little he’d rather do than analyze American sports (China’s table tennis and Denmark’s handball didn’t quite cut it). His writing has appeared in various outlets, including the Kansas City Star, Deadspin, E-Commerce Times and more. For SB Nation David primarily covers the goings-on in his native Midwest.
