About

Follow me on Twitter: @TheRealMattKing.

I'm the sports and pop-culture guru for Bleacher Report. I never thought all my useless knowledge about movies, television, music, and sports would ever do me any good, but I have found my place on Bleacher Report.

I officially joined the staff in 2010 working as the Affiliate Marketing Manager. Basically I help get more compelling content than just straight sports articles in front of different websites around the web. It's just as fun as it sounds.

Besides all the work stuff, I'm an enormous Kentucky basketball fan, Appalachian State grad and football fan and just love all other sports in general. I'm also a newly minted A's fan, now that my brother has joined their organization. And, yes, I believe that me now rooting for them will automatically propel them into the playoffs this year.

I also have a job as the resident big man in B/R pickup games. I shoot more than I pass.

    I'm a UK and king james fan in about equal parts. There's a band I follow that has a song "miami"could have been written for King james and the Cleveland crazies, especially the Cleveland crazies. Some soulful white guy in an east coast band called Black Girls belts out in the refrain "miami is the last place you wanna be". Perfect. The new Cleveland theme song. go cavs. Wonder if they could write a song bout the big blue. Sorry i have no idea how to post it from spotify or i tunes

    Hey Matt, i'm a huge baseball fan, but I enjoyed the article. People are too sensitive these days. I enjoyed the tongue-in-cheek humor and actually agree with a good number of your points. Keep up the good work. Don't let the haters bite.

    I think you are a complete moron and the fact that BleacherReport let you write an article completely bashing another sport which you don't even care about with nonsensical facts is a embarrassment to this site.

    Awesome, awesome article on The Sandlot. One of the best baseball movies ever made. I'll be watching it until the day I die.
