I am a 40-year-old happily married father of four. I am very passionate about sports, especially "Bawmer" sports. The O’s Ravens, Caps, and MD Terps are the teams I live and die with.

I am trying to realize a lifelong dream of writing stories sports fans want to read. I have been with the Bleacher Report since November of 2010 and reached 100 thousand reads in June 2011.

Achieving any dream can be difficult at times and without the love and support of my wife, I would merely be a reader to this great site. I am blessed to have her, as she is my greatest critic and my No. 1 fan.

Writing articles and slide shows, with a full time job, and four children require a lot of time, effort, and understanding. My children have been great along the way. Thank you Lauren, Izzi, Sarah, and Marco.

Sports have always been a major part of my life. I played some competitively . I played hockey and football for many years, establishing a lot of contacts, friends, and special memories along the way.

Only my family moments and memories can surpass the games I have attended and played in.

I am looking for any opportunity that will help me realize my dream of working in the sports word. I would be willing to write about any sport in order to gain experience. Please feel free to email me at zlotsports@gmail.com. You can also follow my twitter page @ twitter.com/#!/alanzlot.

Please enjoy my work and comment if you wish but in the words of Jim Carr, the play-by-play for the Charlestown Chiefs, "please keep them within the boundaries of good taste". I am not shy about trash talk, just please keep it to the topic.

    Hey, would you be able to send your e mail to klangan@omnipossible.com? I want to get the B/R community leaders on a mailing list for a press release on behalf of Sports Media 101.

    Sorry, forget I just wrote that. Just saw that Maybin came from Penn State. I personally don't like anyone from Penn State. Michigan fan. They get in the league and they're just ....challenged all-around. Can't seem to function. Have a good one.

    Raven's fan here. I just saw on ESPN that the Bills just released DE Aaron Maybin. What do you think The Oz, DeCosta and the FO are going to do? Still wait and see who else gets cut or focus on the O-line? Send me some crab cakes!
