Writing is something that I have always enjoyed, but I never appreciated it until after my IT career died a slow and painful death a few years ago. One of the things that I like to write about most is sports, which is why I am writing for Bleacher Report.

Few things in life can match the drama of many sports events. Whether it's Flutie throwing a prayer for Boston College, a hobbled Kirk Gibson hitting one out for the Dodgers or Billy Mills pulling off the biggest upset in Olympic history, we all want to experience those miracles as if they were happening now.

Sometimes the personal stories, the ones that the late Jim McKay called "up, close and personal" were the ones that interested me the most. The stories of people like amputee triathlete Sarah Reinertsen or football player Michael Oher show us what makes human beings athletes and make us compelled to root for them.

On a personal level I have done almost everything in football that one can do except coach it. I have watched, played, broadcast and officiated this fine sport. I have also played basketball and baseball. Endurance sports have also fascinated me as I have been an avid runner and triathlete.

    Thanks Christopher. The note on my board really brought me comfort. It's the little things that mean the most to me.

    We turned a corner today. I'm feeling very optimistic.
