About

My true expertise is in baseball and I love that game to death. I grew up in Atlanta, GA and know almost everything about Atlanta sports and New York sports. I am a firm believer in the Cleveland sports curse and Atlanta sports curse. I plan on writing a book about those two cities one of these days and explaining all the things that have happened to those cities.

I am one out of a few people that follows the NHL and I love watching that sport. I personally think it's the most underrated sport in America and never gets the respect it deserves. I also believe there is a Canadian Stanley Cup cursing currently going. No I'm not really one of those people that curses teams and cities. I just think there are a few of them out there and people don't take it too seriously. Sometimes the teams and players either use curses as an excuse or just ignore them fully and don't respect the history of what has happened.

I'm not a big NFL fan because I think it's very overrated and is mostly just a marketing success. The NFL has lied to players saying that there is no connection between brain injuries and football. They take no responsibility in what is happening and don't address it to the point that more people won't let their kids play the game and will eventually be the death of the game. But I think eventually the league will face what they've been avoiding for decades and will finally take the big hit they deserve for avoiding very serious issues.

I'm a huge college football fan and actually think the BCS isn't such a bad system. Obviously there will no longer be a BCS after the year 2014 and will have a 4 team playoff system. I think a 4 team playoff system is acceptable after congress put more and more pressure on college football to change the system a bit. But to me, college football was the last sport to care the most about the regular season and to continue to put pressure on some teams to schedule tough teams and care about almost every game they play. I love college football because almost every game counts and where almost every game matters. I know the BCS wasn't the perfect system that everyone hoped for after the Bowl Alliance, but I know that the BCS made match ups that could've never happened with the previous system and I appreciated them doing all they could to make the two best teams in the nation face each other.

    Hey Andrew,

    Check out my take on the new Wild Card format. I think you'll find it straight forward. I would love to hear your take on it. Thanks.

    Hey Andrew,

    Here's my take on MLB realignment and what should be done. It's radical, and I would love to hear your thoughts on it. Thanks.

    Hey Andrew,

    Would love to hear your thoughts on my idea of Matt Kemp coming to the Cubs, and whether Epstein could pull that off while also brining in other guys such as Prince Fielder.
