(Promise to keep it to sports and social commentary on the twitter account, no mundane details about my love life....that would be stupid.)
So here it is, I’m a 26 year old sports fan who grew up in the great state of New Jersey, went to college at the University of Massachusetts-Amherst, and currently reside in the Hell’s Kitchen area of New York City.
My teams are the Yankees, Knicks, and Browns- but since the latter two of those teams only offer frustration, I enjoy rooting for good, well played games more than anything. As a baseball fan I’ve been to 15 professional baseball stadiums, and hope to see them all before I hit 30 (good luck to me).
I had brief stints working for the University of Massachusetts-Amherst, student newspaper, "The Collegian", and I also worked a year at ANG Newspapers, where my articles were published in, the San Mateo County Times, the Oakland Tribune, and the San Francisco Chronicle. Sadly, these newspaper fall short of budgeting, and make it very difficult to make a career out of working there- so I’ve been relegated to the blogsphere.

Thanks for your support,
Here's a few of my pet peeves in sports and sports fans...
-How people blame, "FREE AGENCY" for ruining sports:
So you're telling me that if you got offered significantly more money to move to another location to do your job, you wouldn't do it? Take off the blinders PAL. Money makes the world go round even in yours and my boring little world.
- Any Top 10, Top 20, or Top 100 countdown:
This is #1 on my Top 10 list of ways to be subjective.
-Fans who think they are the biggest fan:
Not till you injure or die over a team's failures will you be the biggest fan of your favorite team and even then you're not guaranteed that title- so I don't advise doing that.
In celebration of Derek Jeter's birthday, I wrote this article:
I just came up with the list of the best current Major Leaguers wearing the numbers One thru Ten. I hope you can take a look and voice your opinion on my list. Thanks in advance,

Hey I would appreciate some input on my article: The Five Worst Sports Announcers in NY
Thought I would give The Relay for Life one more push before our big event Saturday. This one is a more in-depth look into the story of Dave Dravecky. Also posted a link for the Josiah Herring Funeral Fund!
You can help. Please give a read and "pay this forward" Some things are bigger than sports.
There was a touching moment in the Mariners game last night, made possible by the best pitcher I've ever gotten to watch - Randy Johnson. Watching history unfold inspired to me take a look at his incredible career and count down his five best moments, in my eyes. If you get a chance, take a look at it, I'd appreciate it. Thanks a lot.
