Nick Johnston


My name's Nick and I'm 18. I've just left school and am studying Politics, Philosophy and Economics at Durham university next year. But my real passion is sport, both playing and watching.

My favourite sport is probably football, I've been a fan of Manchester United for as long as I can remember. But, I also love rugby, particularly Northampton Saints and southern hemisphere rugby.

Since I saw Boston Red Sox in the summer of 1997 at Fenway Park, I have become a huge baseball fan and ultimately, want to watch a World Series game at Fenway Park, but living thousands of miles away makes it kinda hard.

I also love tennis, athletics, american football, cricket and golf (more for playing than watching). Basically I'm a sports enthusiast and keen to provoke and join debates on any sporting topic, whether it's in the pub, at home or here on B/R.

    Hey Nickā€”Dave Mo here, a Bleacher Report Community Coordinator.

    I've been spending time on our Man U page and read a couple of your old articles. Really on-point do good work.

    Given that you haven't written in a while, I thought I'd check in and see if you're interested in picking up your coverage again. What do you say?

    If not, it would be great if you could give me some feedback on why you decided to stop writing and what we could have done to better serve you. If you wouldn't mind, please shoot me a line at with any thoughts.

    Thanks so much,

    Dave Mo

    Nick, the MLB awards and predictions are just for Community Leaders. However, there is a site-wide MLB contest starting up as soon as we find out the final AL participant.

    Thanks for your interest though!

    I enjoyed the article on Manchester United. Keep up the good work.
    I usually like to stick to writing articles, but I kind of drifted from that to come up with a list of my favorite Manchester United quotes. Feel free to check it out.

    All the best,

    Sounds good.. We are doing Awards and Playoff Predictions for the Community Leaders.. But by all means, get a competition going for the rest of the Baseball community and I'll do my best to get the word out there..

    I just e-mailed my predictions. I hope I did it right.

    Thanks, Bob

    Wow I need to read.. I didn't realize you wanted to do the up through the playoffs as well, I thought it was the remaining playoff spots.. Maybe we can just add up the points at the end of the season for teams that make the playoffs?

    Hey Nick, Great Idea!

    Ben Weixlmann and I are putting together MLB Awards with all the Community Leaders involved at the end of the regular season. Perhaps the first person with the most points that isn't a Community Leader can be a wild-card initiation to our little committee? You can add that to the topic if you wish, I'll do my best to promote it.
