I am a lifelong sports fan, especially college football and basketball. I also enjoy NASCAR, the NBA, MLB and the NFL.

I am a graduate of the University of Central Florida.

I am thankful that I grew up when I did. I lived through the hard times of being a fan of the Gators. And I am now enjoying the good times. And hopefully I am young enough to enjoy living in the past when this era is a couple of decades old. My kids are going to be spoiled. They've never known UF to not be a dominant program. My dad is enjoying the good times now, but for how long? He endured the rough times his whole life, now at close to checkout time, we've become one of the elites. I timed it just right.

    I dont think he writes for B/R anymore. But he's over at The Badassitude Blog now & has written several Pro-Cam Newton articles, including his latest gem: http://thebadassitudeblog.com/2016/01/25/cam-haters-stop-the-whining-already/

    Hey Jimbo. How goes the prediction business? Not so good huh? Well, look at this way, you had a 50/50 chance. Too bad you sat down on you fat a$$ and picked the wrong 50. As for Cam, my money is on him proving you wrong for many years to come. I can see into your future and it tells me you are going nowhere bc excuses build bridges to nowhere. Manup jimbo, that's what real men do. Don't wait for someone to buy your ticket, that's not what you said it would take in your (article). I hope people heckle you for years to come. No peace for the snake. If we didn't have a 15 min news cycle you would be jackass of the decade.
    I read that you didn't get paid for spewing that garbage. Did you hear that violin? Me either. Well at least I can take some consolation in knowing you are not a real journalist. Hey, I know, maybe Tebow can pray for you. Be a man, own it. Or maybe you are just used to being on your knees bc you sure blew it!!!!

    "Cam Newton is a sure-fire bust. I am so certain of this that if he is the Panthers' starting quarterback in 2016, I will buy a Cam Newton jersey and stand in the stadium parking lot in my underwear when the Panthers come to Tampa Bay and hold a sign proclaiming that Auburn rules over Florida and Carolina rules over Tampa Bay." Remember when you said this fuckboy, Tebow is a good christian man but isn't even in the league anymore.

    It takes b@lls to make a bold statement. It takes a man with b@lls to keep his word after. It takes a C U Next Tuesday to make every imaginable excuse while weaseling your way out of keeping your word. You were wrong, and not just a little bit. Be a man and keep the promises you made.

    By the way - if you ever run into your man-crush, you can always have him say a prayer for you :-) That's about the only thing he did better than Newton.

    How did that Newton - Tebow thing work out for you LMAO. Don't hide now Jim. I'm SURE your children wouldn't like to know that their dad punked out on what he'd said he would to if certain things happened.

    Now that Cam Newton has proven you wrong on every prediction you made in that 2011 article I am awaiting the fulfillment of your promise to wear his jersey and pose in your underwear. Or better yet admit the article was racist and I will try and move on.

    So a UCF alumni who roots for U of F and refuses to honor past promises made in haste to be kind or in ignorance to be real. Color me surprised!
