Sports writing is something I knew I'd get into since the first time I started writing anything. I love to tell a story, but I'll admit I'm lazy. With sports I can just write about what happens on the field, then fill in a little bit of analysis and opinions from time to time.
I was born in Charleston, South Carolina on October 21, 1983 to two Cuban parents (one from Chicago, the other from Boston via Miami), and moved to Miami when I was six weeks old. Since then I've been immersed as a Miami-sports fan (with the exception of the Marlins since I decided to follow my father into being a Cubs fan). The Dolphins are my first sports-love and the team I'm a Featured Columnist of on this fair site, but I'm also a huge Heat fan and will write about them from time to time. I'm not the typical Miami "bandwagon" fan, I'm with my team through the end (and lord know's I've been tested, thank you Stephen Ross and Jeff Ireland!).
I also like debating anyone, anywhere, at any time about any subject. I'm opinionated but not stubborn, I'll admit I'm wrong when I'm proven wrong and raise the hand of the victor of such a debate. I also like to write short stories and am always available to freelance in my spare time.
MIAMI HEAT SUCKS
I enjoy reading your articles on the Dolphins but I had one question that I can't find anywhere. What is the latest on Dustin Keller? Is he coming back to the NFL? Is he going to come back to Miami? And if he comes back to Miami, will they start him over Clay who did a terrific job filling in?
I enjoyed your article on Jeff Ireland but I had a question for you. What if Ireland was planning for a run next year? If that was the case, picking up the players that he has drafted makes perfect sense. You cannot tell the fan base you are developing and you have to give them a reason to watch your team. If the entire plan was to prepare to develop players with high ceilings by getting them in the second and third round then this would make perfect sense.
I have a hard time reading Ireland. Part of me thinks he is crazy like a fox and another part of me thinks that he has naked pictures of Ross with a goat or something.
What is Miami's 2014 compensation for losing Martin and Incognito? Martin quit the team. He was a second round draft pick. Does Miami get a compensatory pick for him? I understand how the compensation picks work. Miami should get more picks based on who is released after 2013.
Hello Thomas, is there an age requirement to write for Bleacher Report ? Just as you, I am a passionate fan of the Miami Dolphins and I wish to write about them.
Hey Thomas, don't know if you saw my message but just wanted to say I love the most recent mock draft you did, definitely made me re-look at some of my own rankings and evaluations. Great stuff and thanks for what you do!
Well another ereporter that has opinion on CBs. I would want you to review the game enitrely before you would give RJ a B for a grade. I guess you missed the missed block on special teams and how he was beat 3/4 of the time down field. Good thing they did throw deep on him because the score could of been worse. Sean is not as good as the media portrays. So he showed up for a game or two. He has played every down and every game. His stats should be higher on the team stats. Nolan Carroll had 1 rough game and has played less full games and shares with RG and his numbers are high. Please before you rattle of your opinion please review time in game and how many games played with or without mistakes before you grade RG a B and Nolan Carroll a C
No problem, Thomas! I really dig your stuff! As a new writer for the Dolphins, just thought I'd ingratiate myself to the other writers haha.
