Adam Czech

Adam Czech works in public affairs and is a freelance sports reporter in the Twin Cities. When Adam isn't working, he's getting yelled at by his wife for playing too many GM sims and watching too much pro wrestling from the 1980s and 90s. Sideways looks from Adam's wife and blank stares of confusion from his friends haven’t deterred Adam from continuing to dive deeper and deeper into the GM sim world. Adam has lost track of how many GM sims he owns. Baseball, football, basketball, hockey, golf…heck, even pro wrestling and horse racing. If there’s a text sim for it, he's probably owned it at one time. Finally, don't be shy. If you have a topic you'd like Adam to discuss or a hidden-gem of a game, let him know he'll gladly look into it. Adam also covers the Green Bay Packers at AllGreenBayPackers.com.

I realize most college coaches would jump at the opportunity to coach in the pros, but there are a handful who choose not to. Those coaches are crazy. I suppose there is something to be ...[Read More]

Review – Draft Day Sports: Pro Basketball 3

Stats and analytics aren’t just for baseball nerds any more. The geeks have made their way into basketball.   Due to its endless statistics and 162 games worth of data, baseball has traditionally been the sport that was the most popular in the text sim world. With analytics and stats now taking hold in basketball front offices and the hoops blogosphere, could a basketball GM sim revolution be...[Read More]

If there’s a text sim, I’ve probably owned it

I knew there was something wrong with me right around the time I bought Front Page Sports Baseball Pro ’98. When I broke open the box with Randy Johnson on the cover and installed the Sierra Sports classic, I played it like you were “supposed to” play sports video games, meaning I mashed buttons on the keyboard and played arcade style. To my 16-year-old mind, the game didn’t seem all that di...[Read More]
