Probably not that different from a lot of people on here. I've always had a lot of people telling me I should write, the odd thing presents itself every so often, but that aside, I just sort of presume I'll get round to having a proper go at it at some point.
So, my sports credentials? United Fan/borderline encyclopaedia, stadium anorak, amateur statto, I could claim to being a 'properly' published sports writer - but it was a one-off thing for a Canadian sports paper during Euro '96.
Writing? Well, I'm incredibly picky about correct spelling, punctuation and grammar - but we all make typos, don't we? I have opinions and I'm not afraid to use them. I like to read well-considered articles or editorials, especially those where the primary act of covering the story itself almost becomes secondary, behind the wider conclusions it invites the reader to draw about life or more 'important' issues. Did I make that sound unpretentious? Maybe not but I hope you get the meaning.
