Happy birthday Emerson Spartz!

I'd like to take the time to wish MuggleNet founder and webmaster Emerson “The Lean” Spartz a happy 21st birthday. Congrats, Emmy, you no longer have any age-related legal restrictions (except renting cars in some states, and lower car insurance rates.)

Emerson started the site as a homeschooler at the tender age of 12, many years before he began leaning 10 feet across the pong table. Emerson, now in his third year at the University of Notre Dame, has led the site from its original design (and minimal content) to the Harry Potter mega-site it is today.

From all of the fans and the staff here at MuggleNet: Happy birthday, buddy!
