In the famous words of Lloyd Dobler, I'm looking for a dare-to-be-great situation. Don't get me wrong, John Cusack isn't my inspiration...though I'd love it if he played me in a movie someday. I'm just really big on quotes. If there were one person--non-fictional--who inspires me, perhaps it would be fellow University of Cincinnati alumnus Sandy Koufax, whose example is a reminder that some people are just late bloomers.
As a dyed-in-the-wool Pittsburgh native and a self-loathing fan of her teams, I went to UC to earn my degree in Electronic Media so I could return home and pursue my journalistic aspirations. I then spent four years covering the WPIAL (Western Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic League) and the PIHL (Pennsylvania Interscholastic Hockey League). I continue to do so in print, on radio, and on (streaming) television for a small but growing business called Rubino Productions.
Somewhere along the way, the two most powerful radio stations in Pittsburgh (KDKA-AM and -FM), believe it or not, thought I was good enough to work for them...on the side, anyway. As a humble servant of CBS Pittsburgh for six years and counting, I hope to apply here the experience and knowledge I continue to gain there as I aim to move my career in sports journalism forward.
My mission objectives are to do my best work, even if it isn't always my fastest; to become an indispensable member of whichever business I represent, and to live my dream of covering hockey professionally. I'm never truly happy unless I feel I've gotten out of something what I put into it. I'll make the good-faith effort to write, so hopefully the end user will make the good-faith effort to read!
kind of good news for pitt fans like yourself, downside is that he's another momma's boy like boyd. Davidison moved pitt into the top spot today. he did like WVU, just like Boyd, but momma wouldn't let him go. Apparently a similar problem with Davidson. btw nice win last week. We got our asses handed to us.
