I am a civil aviation enthusiast that also loves sports, travel photography, geography, random facts and my wife's cooking. My nickname (which I have been using at various aviation websites/message boards) is a testimony of my love of airplanes and sports. "Widebody" refers to the large, wide-fuselage, type of airliners such as the Airbus A380, A340, A330, the Boeing 747, 767, 777, 787 or the Ilyushin-96 (more info here). I've always been drawn to these elegant beasts and even to this day I cannot help but stare at them when they happen to fly over me. Dejan Bodiroga, on the other hand, is a retired Serbian basketball player who is considered by many to be one of the best players to ever play the game (more info here). Even though he was not my favorite player (I don't think I ever had one!) I respect him immensely and consider him to be the "face" of European basketball in the 90's and 00's.
So here you have it: "Widebody" meets "Bodiroga" and combined they give rise to "WideBodyroga". Silly, no?
Originally from Bulgaria, I was educated in Wales and Scotland, and I now live in Chicago with my wife and our imaginary pets.
