Born and raised in the lovely little town of Santa Rosa, Calif., Ryan went to San Diego State for college once his wings grew out. He entered the school when administration was making a concerted effort to shed its image of Playboy's Top 10 Party Schools. Ryan would like to thank SDSU for restricting students from hauling kegs up dorm stairways-if that had continued he surely would still be in school.
Ryan went on to graduate with a B.A. in journalism. He's worked for the Healdsburg Tribune and Windsor Times in California, freelanced for the San Francisco Chronicle, wrote music reviews for OregonMusicNews.com while he was in Portland, and appeared in an increasing amount of sports blogs.
Ryan joined Bleacher Report in hopes that journalism is still alive and well (in some form or another), and find a place to interact with readers in a positive, constructive manner. Ryan hopes everyone likes his articles and they find him to be an intelligent, witty young man...with a quill of gold.
The courts at the Lindner Family Tennis Center in Mason, OH, site of the Southern & Western Tennis Tournament ("Cincinnati") are HARD, not clay! I've attended for many years.
RE: Possibility of Ronaldo Returning to ManUnited
A group of Manchester United football supporters have developed an innovative viral campaign called "Bring Ronaldo Home" that would allow the club's reported 659 million fans around the world to make a pledge via a unique crowd-funding website to buy Cristiano Ronaldo back to the club.
Following up with the campaign is a heart-felt campaign video similar to that of the "Kony Phenomenon": http://youtu.be/pL7cpGMat-0
With all the shocks to the ManUnited Football Club at the moment (Fergie stepping down and Rooney rumoured leaving) the club and more importantly the fans are in need of something to get behind!
The campaign launched only a few days ago with thousands of pledges already rolling in.
Here is the link to the website: http://www.bringronaldohome.org/
If you would like any more information please let me know.
Get your facts straight fake journalist: Djokovic did not practice for 12 days because he was injured with a torn ankle and did not even know if he was going to play at Madrid until the last few days before the start of the tournament. At Monte-Carlo he wasn't even sure to play either. So I suggest that instead of hating on everybody else's success you go out and learn a thing or two about journalism.
When did I ever say Lin was injury-prone? And yes, poor Bogut. Makes me cry.
follow-up, Jeremy Lin is iron man, as of today, one of 5 only starting PGs, started and played all possible NBA games (others Westbrook, Jennings, Lillard,Walker). I told you weeks ago, also, your injury-prone GSW Bogut got injury again, right?
Hey bro, you might want to take a look at your latest article and make some major revisions. I understand that you just pulled up the scorecard on ESPN but you should probably know how Tiger's round went and what hole he started on.
Also, how do you know I drink coffee?
What facts am I missing, Chris M?
So, after reading your other posts... I would like to know where I can go spew some false malarkey and get a job just like you. You seem to let personal opinions and vendettas take over for facts and accurate writing. The fact that you ever received a journalism degree is a shock and truly a joke from SDSU for issuing it to you. I hope you choke on some coffee and ruin your computer spitting it out. Don't write about sports any more. Maybe you should do something more your speed... like cooking. Or home decorating. Or... Anything else for that matter. Just not sports, you are no good at it.
Do I get a trophy?
