My name's Matt and I am currently a management of sports industries undergrad. I love baseball and especially love the Philadelphia teams, the Phillies, Eagles, Sixers, and Flyers. A lot of athletes say that they've been playing their sport for as long as they can remember. In my case, I've enjoyed writing for as long as I can remember. Of course, writing college papers tests that enjoyment.
Growing up is a terrible thing. I wouldn't wish it on anyone.
Thanks very much, Matt!
Matt, I'll definitely take another look. It might take me a minute, though, so sit tight.
Thanks so much for the praise Matt! Glad you enjoyed the slideshow. Your prospect piece last week was an awesome read as well!
The Alabama team that opened with Clemson wasnt suppose to win. The infamous blackout game with Georgia was suppose to be a lost. Noone saw it coming. The difference in this years Alabama team and that one is more expierence. The people that really know,(Vegas), would disagree with your oppinion about how bad Alabama was going to do this year. I think you are writting about what you want to happen versus what will happen. Maybe you should stick to writting about baseball in Philly. Thugsville USA.
Re: 4 Untrue Stereotypes About Phillies Fans - I wrote a MA thesis on this very topic. Basically how the national sports media perpetuates fan stereotypes and I bring up some of what you mention. Great job on bringing it out!
