About

I am a staff writer at GenXXL.com covering baseball, basketball, and football, primarily. My mother thought I would be a field goal kicker or tap dancer before I was even born, but flat feet and a weight problem pretty much took care of those dreams. Instead I’m a guinea pig for the new podcast GenXXL will be publishing every week, and I also cover sports at BleacherReport.com.

I have been watching and playing sports since I was 4 – from hockey to tennis and everything in between. The only thing more entertaining than watching Brett Favre play is Rosario Dawson mud wrestling. I like to think of myself and my writing to be unique and fun, but that could just be the massive head trauma I suffered on the football field talking. Which of course means if I say your favorite team sucks you can blame it on the many repetitious blows I’ve taken to the head.

I have received four achievement awards for my work on BleacherReport.com. I was awarded a bronze medal for what the site calls a Hot Read, over 1,400 reads, on a NFL awards prediction article.

The two I am most proud of generated comments, mostly hatred hurled at me, likely due to those knocks in the head. One was a bronze medal for a piece on Allen Iverson and the other was a silver medal done about Bill Belichick. I either hit a nerve or people decided to take out their sexual frustrations on me.

My goal will always be to make you feel something; happy, sad, or angry and if you don’t, that could be a sign that your mother breast fed you whisky.

    Where do I start?? I think you forgot a few moments on your "All Time Sports Moments." Might I remind you of the 2003 walk-off by Aaron "Bleeping" Boone, and the 1998 catch by Terrell "He caught it, he caught it, Owens caught it!!" Owens...

    I was looking to do a "Santa's wish list for Michigan sports fans". I did one, but deleted it on accident... would you be interested in a collaboration?

    These are good questions you ask, and I could write a few pages in response. For now I will just say that yes, they are recovering, and yes, they will re-tool. I'll drop you a line tomorrow with more detail. Busy weekend and I'm wiped, ya know?
