I am a December 2009 graduate of the Journalism and Media Studies program at the University of South Florida St. Petersburg campus. Since August 2007, I have been a correspondent for the St. Petersburg Times, now Tampa Bay Times, covering high school athletics. I am a huge sports fan who grew up and still lives in the Tampa Bay Area of Florida. Naturally, that means I am a Tampa Bay Lightning, Tampa Bay Rays, Tampa Bay Buccaneers and USF Bulls fan. I am also a huge fan of the Auburn Tigers as my parents both went to Auburn, Hockey is definately my No. 1 sport. I became a Lightning fan in 2004 and have not looked back since. I go to a lot of Lightning games each season and my favorite players would have to be Marty St. Louis, Steven Stamkos and Vinny Lecavalier. My dream is to one day work for the Tampa Bay Lightning in their communications department.

    comparing stamkos to crosby shows women shouldnt watch sports let alone talk about it. crosby put up 50 points in 25 games while kunitz and dupuis where his wingers. the comparison is laughable at best.

    Lauren, just because it's the off season doesn't mean there no Lightning hockey stuff to write about! You remember every game you ever went to? How about watch parties? :O)

    Also, you wrote "Ruth or Mays? - I don't watch boxing enough to have an opinion on this."...Boxing? Didn't know what Babe Ruth and Willie Mays did in the off season but I never would of guessed boxing ;O) Just kidding :O)

    Go, write....

    Hey Lauren, Just wanted to share something with you regarding the comments you made on my article. I don't put tags in my articles, only links to support my position. It appears that B/R software puts them in automatically. Just wanted to pass that along.
