About

Writing is my hobby, and what better to write than that which I know little about? It leaves the room one needs to fabricate artful little elements about what you see and pretend that your opinion is worth something. This is Sports Writing.

Hunter S. Thompson described it as, "The two keys to success as a sportswriter are: (1) A blind willingness to believe anything you’re told by the coaches, flacks, hustlers, and other “official spokesmen” for the team-owners who provide the free booze … and: (2) A Roget’s Thesaurus, in order to avoid using the same verbs and adjectives twice in the same paragraph."

Which is excellent, as this means that I only need to go out and buy a Thesaurus.
