About

Graduated from:

I am 24 years old and played soccer for a large portion of my life before finally deciding it was time to go in another direction and sports writing was that direction. I love messing around with statistics and trying to find new ways to better analyze how players are actually performing and whether or not they are helping their team succeed.

After completing the summer internship on Bleacher Report, I have joined the site full-time as a member of the Breaking News team. It is great to be a part of the staff at one of the fastest-growing sports sites on the Internet.

My favorite part of the sports calendar is the first two days of March Madness (when my bracket still has a chance) because of the non-stop action and the chance to learn some great stories about players you otherwise would have never known about.

The only two sports I don't religiously follow that are covered by Bleacher Report are MMA and boxing. Even those I keep an eye on, though. Other than those two, I will pretty much watch any live sporting event that is on television (even curling).

    Tim---IMHO your favorites list is one big Error. In addition, calling fantasy baseball something about picking a player going around a table is just plain stupid. There is only one Real fantasy baseball and that is the Original fantasy baseball. By the way, how many rings does Big Bill Russell have??? You have No idea between Unitas and Montana.
    Best of Luck!

    ATLANTA 1996

    Atlanta, Tuesday, February 25th, 2014

    Hello Tim,

    We read with great interest your just published article “Gary, Angelica di Silvestri's Timeline as Controversial Dominica Olympic Skiers”.

    What you did not mention in your excellent article may be the fact that both di Silvestri's went to great length to participate at the Sochi 2014 Olympic Games so they would both become life members of the world most exclusive club, namely the World Olympians Association (WOA) whose International Olympic Committee (IOC) designated Patron is a 5 time Olympian (bobsled) who happens to also be ATLANTA 1996's co-founder.

    You state that “Angelica was the only scheduled athlete who didn't start the women's 10-kilometer classic after an apparent training injury.” thus she cannot ever claim to be an Olympian. Having qualified and walked on Opening night does not qualify you to become an OLYMPIAN.

    On the other hand, since Gary started the race but did not reach the first check point, he can now rightfully claim to be an Olympian.

    While you state that the IOC should reconsider its standards and procedures for Olympic tourists such as the di Silvestri’s; the current IOC policy has truly helped more countries participate in the Olympics, and the likes of the di Silvestri’s that qualify by mistake is truly an exception.

    For the most part, people with the means of the di Silvestri’s have sponsored a National Governing Body so an athlete or two would qualify to the Games, thus giving the sponsor a chance --such as the American of integrity who enabled the Cameroons to participate at the Salt Lake 2002 Olympic Games-- to walk at the Opening ceremonies and receive Olympic credentials with full access to all events during the Games.

    On the other hand, as Gary started the race without even reaching the first check point, he can now most unfortunately claim the title of Olympian (the official IOC appointed Patron of all the 110,000 + OLYMPIANS around the world is the ATLANTA 1996 co-founder).

    "It's a side that featured battle-tested players like Asamoah Gyan and Sulley Muntari, but also has its fair share of emerging stars like Kevin-Prince Boateng."

    KPB emerging? just because he's only recently been highly rated on FIFA doesn't mean he's "emerging." he's been playing at the highest level for years and has been an established star for a few years as well

    England 3-1 Chile, huh? 0-2
    Also Schumacher over Senna? Bonkers. The question should have been Fangio or Senna... if you know who Fangio even was.

    Tim - good writeup on Colombia - i have been writing about them since the 2010 World Cup...following their ups and downs since 1990, I knew the 2014 WCQ would bring them back to the international spotlight once again.

    Check out my page and my Colombia articles. I'll be heading to Brazil next summer, so hopefully I'll catch a Colombia gmae during the world cup!!

    Tim- I read with amazement the article you wrote about GM Towers. It sounded exactly like the premise of my book A Pitch For Justice. If you'd like to read it check out the cover page and some reviews
