I am a former sportswriter who now spends his days as a high school English teacher and baseball coach. Sports have been a way of life since birth -- my first "onesie" was a Willie Stargell uniform, and my first word was "ball" -- and I love how sports connect with life. I am very opinionated and sarcastic, which has gotten me into trouble in the past. But I have no intention of changing. I'm always connecting sports with pop culture, and intend to do that with my writing. You don't have to agree with my views -- in fact, I love healthy, respectful debate. Feel free to e-mail or facebook me. I always answer e-mails and comments about my work.
