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.
Thanks for the like, Tony.
This week I had a chance to interview Knicks legend John Starks about what he is up to and what he thinks of the Knicks today. Check it out if you'd like:
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...
What do you think of the comeback attempt by the Knicks Jonathan Bender?
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?
Please read, comment and pass on if you like...
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?
My NFL Q&A featuring some tough questions from the B/R crowd.
Now that Nate Robinson has been reduced to riding the pine, what do you think is next?
