Hello, my name is Anthony Orlando, but call me Tony or Tone for short as my friends do. I am a graduate of Central Michigan University where i received a BAA in Sport Management and journalism. I began as a journalism major, but decided, though my passion for writing is very, very strong, I want to be hands on involved in sports. I, however, will still write about it. I have written for CMU's first-ever online magazine publication, Grand Central Magazine (www.grandcentralmagazine.com). I was sports editor and did numerous articles as well. I have also had extensive journalism classes, and wrote for the nationally renowned student-newspaper CM-Life for two years. www.cm-life.com. My other experiences at CMU gave me hands on knowledge of collegiate sports by being a marketing and promotions intern within CMU's athletic department. I know find myself living in Midland, Texas, working for the Midland RockHounds (the AA affiliate of the Okaland A's). Just recently have become full -time sales and marketing, after starting as an operations manager. I am a Detroit anything, Michigan Wolverine, and CMU sports fan first and foremost. But I follow everything from the world of sports. ESPN is basically on 24/7 in my household. Hope you enjoy my insight.
A Look at the Lions' QBs and RBs
I didn't comment on the story as there were already some 90+ comments, but found your perspective again far more reasonable than the author's on the RRod story written by Lisa ... the apparent #1 writer on the site. Good grief; three words taken completely out of context ... anybody who can't see why he'd say that or feel that way is crazy. I don't know if you know the Penn State fan "Isaac", but it's fans like that that literally need to "get a life" ... albeit he's 15. I sure hope the majority of Michigan fans realize what RR is trying to do and give him the time to do it. His football IQ didn't suddenly drop 100 points or something ... amazing how quick people can turn on you when they're frustrated. Sheesh! I guess RRod-hating is the popular spectator sport at the moment.
Hi, just saw your comment on the Rich Rodriguez / Nick Saban article. A lot of Alabama fans are idiots; it's not even worth reasoning with them. They'll sing a different tune after the SEC Championship game but will go back to wearing aforementioned blinders before the 09-2010 season, I'm sure.
Care to check out my article on Michigan? I like your style.
Sure thing Tony!
When are we gonna get your thoughts on the Iverson trade?
For obvious reasons, Rich-Rod is probably capable of amassing a nice win streak against Ohio State until our coaches figure out what to do against the spread. I don't think this is the year that his win streak begins, but it's inevitable.
Anthony, allow me to apologize for the message left for you. I was writing at the same time you were it seems and your response to Erick cleared up a lot. I too enjoy arguing sports and, as you said, it is a shame that the conversation deviated from sports talk.
Again, sincere apologies.
Hey thanks for the edits and feedback. I appreciate it.
All the best,
