I am a sophomore at the University of Oregon and I have an unhealthy addiction for sports. The Oakland A's and Major League Baseball are my biggest passions, but for some reason college football and the Ducks are creeping up as a close second. I am double-majoring in Sports Marketing and Public Relations, and am currently interning with San Francisco-based boutique tech PR firm, Vineberg Communications. Inspired by Bill Simmons and the guys from Around the Horn, I am not your typical sports writer. So if you're tired of the typical AP style game-recaps, and want witty, insightful prose about the Oregon Ducks from a college student's point of view, I am your resource. I have my own blog called the The UO Sports Dude, to visit, go to http://uosportsdude.com
