Huh? I am not a bum. I'm a jerk. I once had wealth, power, and the love of a beautiful woman. Now I only have two things: my friends and... uh... my thermos. Huh? My story? Okay. It was never easy for me. I was born a poor black child. I remember the days, sittin' on the porch with my family, singin' and dancin' down in Mississippi.
While some of you might know this as the Jerk with Steve Martin, it can also be doctored to tell my story. I am a thirtysomething teacher and speech consultant. Like everyone else, I have a sports jones and saw Bleacher Report as a place to stimulate conversations about the topics that I am thinking about.
Like a lot of writers here, I played all the sports in high school and played football and water polo in college. I graduated from Weber State University in Ogden,Utah with a degree in Speech Communication. I have certification in Education and Online Teaching and Learning in addition to High School and Middle School Social Studies, with a Masters (about to be wrapped up) in Ed.
Basketball is my love and Football is my mistress, but I treat sports like Tupac, so I get around. You name it and I will watch it long enough to form an opinion about it...Finally, if you have an opinion, come with facts, because you know I will...
The Birthday in my profile is symbolic of 9/11, a day of infamy and a day to remember....
