I grew up in the Boston area, and have been a die-hard sports fan since 1986 (bad timing, I know). I was lucky enough to work in the Red Sox ticket office in the early months of the magical 2004 championship season. However, I moved to Washington, D.C. mid-season to pursue a (non-sports-related) writing and editing career, and had to watch the playoffs on TV like (almost) everyone else. I then had to watch as my friends who were still working for the Sox were given tickets to the World Series (including the games in St. Louis) ... AND WORLD SERIES RINGS. But at least I have the 2004 Red Sox media guide with my photo in it!
I am a graduate of the University of Michigan, and remain a big follower of the Wolverines' football, basketball and hockey teams. In addition to the Red Sox and Michigan, I was converted by my older cousins at a young age to root for the Cleveland sports teams: the Browns, Indians and Cavaliers. Lord knows they need our support right now. Finally, I can't talk about my rooting habits in any serious way without also mentioning that I am quite obsessive about fantasy baseball and fantasy football.
All in all, I've spent countless waking hours thinking about sports, and I thank Bleacher Report for giving me the opportunity to share some of those thoughts with you.
