It all began on a Sunday. John Elway helicoptered past multiple Packer defenders for a first down, and I became a football fan. From then on out, sports joined my list of passions that included music, writing, and Legos. As a young kid, I would watch hours and hours of Super Bowls past on ESPN Classic. I would force my younger brother to make weekly NFL picks. I would spend hours drawing the logos of all the teams in the NFL; I was not artistic. I always hated the Dolphins logo; it's so complex.
Currently a college student, majoring in English and business, sportswriting has become a part of my definition. In other lives, I am a songwriter and classically trained pianist, but I'll be honest with you folks - I would trade that skill in a second to be an NFL kicker or a pro golfer...or both.

Thanks Joe. With Roethlisberger nicked up, the other injuries on the team, and the loss of some of the veteran leaders, I don't see Pittsburgh going to the playoffs.
Thanks for the like and comment Joe. I appreciate it.

I like the article on Stevie Johnson, but you might want to edit this:
"This season, Johnson has done exactly what great receivers don't and what average receivers do: disappear."
Stevie has done was great receivers don't do - disappear
Stevie has done what average receivers do - disappear
That is how that reads. Other than that, good read!
