University of Oregon journalism student fortunate enough to grow up in a region of the United States that is unparalleled in its sports' futility. Twenty one years born and raised in Portland, Oregon and all I have to show for it are a few tantalizing whifs of champaign and cigar smoke and a whole bucket full of the salty tears of heartbreak and failure -- all thanks to the BCS, the Los Angeles Lakers, Ben Roethlisberger and a couple no good cheating zebras.
I love: Phil Knight, Brandon Roy, the Pritchslap, night games at Autzen Stadium, big league baseball in Portland
I can't stand: Fuskies (except B-Roy), John Canzano, the Stoops', Red Sox Nation, Bill Bavasi and the entire Seattle Mariners organization (except Felix)
If you get a chance check out my new article.
Was Bart Starr underrated or overrated? I love to hear what you think.
haha HA. WE ARE BACK MY FRIEND. READ 'EM AND WEEP
Could you take a look to my latest NFL article?
Thanks for your note, Alex.
thanks Alex, appreciate the feedback, and yeah I have a tendency to run on a bit, I always to go back "re-write", restructuring things, but I often miss some.
Thanks again, nice job, Craig
Thanks for the edits! Just a clarification, my use of the pronoun "we" is deliberate, but the point isn't driven across accurately enough. I find identifying with sports teams so personally as to feel connected with its success or failure an interesting and someone pathetic behavior and I try to emulate it for comedic effect. I think I need to use it less often, however, since that is clearly not being displayed effectively. I'll limit it's use in the future.
Alex, Thanks for the compliment, edit and the spelling correction. Everything is greatly appreciated. David
