I am currently a Junior, Print Journalism major at Quinnipiac University.

I love baseball, football, and basketball, and hope to write about them professionally one day, but for right now this will do. My favorite teams (a.k.a. causes of anger/nervousness/happiness in no particular order) are the New York Yankees, Miami Dolphins, and the Portland Trailblazers.

I am from Stamford, CT (45 Minutes from Yankee Stadium) so the Yankees are a local team.

My father had family in FLA. and they would come up for holidays and watch the Fins and the first year he began watching was in '72 (still the only perfect season) and my father has been a fan ever since and passed it down to me. For better or worse (a.k.a. this season).

The Blazers are the most random team to be a fan of in the United States, I know. I became a fan because like many other people of my generation I grew up watching the Chicago Bulls of the '90s dominate and whenever I would play I would be Scottie Pippen because my cousin was better than I am so he would be Jordan. I ended up becoming a big Scottie Pippen fan and still am, so when he ended up with the Jailblazers I started rooting for them and now I am hooked. What are you going to do?

I will write about whatever sport/ team/ player gets me fired up enough to write something on them. I will try to be as objective as I can, but I will be honest I will overrate my favorite athletes/teams (before the season started I thought the Dolphins could have snuck into the playoffs this year).

Please feel free to question or comment about anything I write.

    Hey TJ,

    The Yankees were already hitting just .232 with RISP (3rd worst in the league) BEFORE facing the Red Sox. They then went a horrifying 4-19. Read how fans are beginning to become angry and impatient as the left-on-base totals begin to skyrocket. I would love to hear your thought and comments.

    Thanks in advance!

    Hey T.J.,

    Thank you very much for the kind words, and I am glad that you enjoy my work following the Yankees. I certainly hope that the new stadium can feel more and more like home as time passes, and once we capture #27 it will begin to take on its own legacy. Take care man, and I will talk to you soon.

    Hey TJ,

    After 86 years in “The House that Ruth Built,” it still felt weird imagining the Yankees in a new building. In my third trip to the new Yankee Stadium, there were events that finally made it begin to feel like home.

    I would love to hear your comments and feedback. Thanks in advance!

    Hey TJ—Max Tcheyan here, a Bleacher Report Community Coordinator.

    I've been spending time on our Yankees page and read a couple of your old articles. Really on-point do good work.

    Given that you haven't written in a while, I thought I'd check in and see if you're interested in picking up your coverage again. What do you say?

    If not, it would be great if you could give me some feedback on why you decided to stop writing and what we could have done to better serve you. If you wouldn't mind, please shoot me a line at with any thoughts.

    Thanks so much,

    T.J. I just wanted to reiterate that your piece is really good, but it would be much better served being broken up into two articles: one about Joba, and the other about your top five celebrations.
