Once upon a time, I covered sports for an actual newspaper. You know, that tangible paper-like thing that occasionally smears ink on your fingers and doubles as toilet paper when the cupboard is bare. One time, this irate caller told me I was "worse than a used car salesman." Another gentleman told me I "was that guy who would follow everyone if they were all jumping off of a bridge."

I don't miss it.

By day, I work for Bleacher Report's UK team doing mostly social stuff. I can speak British!

I've been published in a bunch of tiny rags in various parts of Northern California that (hopefully) you've never heard of and spent a year and a half putting typos into The San Francisco Chronicle's agate section.

And it's not like it matters for email exchanges, but it's pronounced "sway-bee":

I graduated from UCSB in 2006 with a degree in Film Studies and a minor in Semi-Intoxicated Beach Cruiser Riding.

    Dear Sean Swaby,

    I've been noticing that you are posting your ManU articles in Dortmund's and in other team's pages as well.

    Is it your sick idea to get more reads?

    Please just stop it. It's really annoying and a nuisance.

    Thank you.


    The boxer Klitschko from Ukraine - pro-American! It supports the new illegal Ukrainian power which came by revolution and overthrow with support of the American politicians! As also Klitschko receives the financial help from America to support this illegal Ukrainian power. This new illegal pro-American government uses the weapon, volley hail systems, tanks and phosphorus-incendiary bombs against peace and unarmed inhabitants! And Klitschko too supports it! PEOPLE, Klitschko - the fascist because it, supports this fascist power which by means of America came to the power in Ukraine! People, tell at home about this boxer Klitschko - he isn't worthy the champion titles and awards! Klitschko - a condom! Кому интересна правда, кто может и не боится рассказать своим друзьям эту правду и кому не безразлична судьба МИРА (от того что происходит на Украине сейчас зависит все равновесие во всем МИРЕ. ) - пишите и спрашивайте:
