-I currently write for Bleacher Report's Breaking News Team, so you can find me writing about anything from the Super Bowl to more popular topics such as marathon running and darts.
-I graduated from the University of Washington with a Communications degree. I support all Husky teams, especially women's softball.
-I love to play basketball in my free time. Unfortunately, I'm more Mike Miller circa 2012 than Mike Miller circa 2007.
-I own the most random collection of basketball jerseys. They include, but aren't limited to, a Rasheed Wallace Bullets jersey, a Glenn Robinson Bucks jersey, a Rudy Fernandez Blazers jersey and a Dajuan Wagner Cavaliers jersey.
-I enjoy bullet points.
-I have a Twitter, and if you enjoy that sort of thing, you can find me @t_keen
-Someone I look up to in the sports world is the boom goes the dynamite guy.
How come on every Michael Sam story that has been on B/R there is no comment section?
I like that you enjoy bullet points, but don't use them even though you have a list on your profile.
Can you please do NHL FanDuel lineups daily? I found it very informative and helpful.
you blo. dont set linesup for leagues.
You posted an article about the DEA investigating two NFL teams, neither of which is the Dolphins, yet the photo linked to the article appears to be the Dolphins. This is horribly misleading and should be corrected.

If two or four teams from One conference OR ANOTHER think they are DIVINELY APPOINTED to PLAY in the NC GAME and DENY all other worthy TEAMS a chance, then it is TIME for a little March Madness in the world of college football. Lets have a REAL PLAYOFF and call it December MADNESS. And a $BILLION in travel and TEAM revenues.
Here we go again. College foot ball fans MEEKLY accepting the NONSENSE put out by the MEDIA that a REAL football playoff of 32 teams is IMPOSSIBLE, too burdensome, or TAKES too much TIME from CLASS.
Basketball does it with 64. College football can easily do it with a 32 team playoff. No more BITTER FANS screaming MY TEAM got LEFT OUT. Basketball has March Madness. COLLEGE FOOTBALL needs December Madness.
ALABAMA in all its GREATNESS Lost a last Second STUNNER. Then the UNFAIR bullet or restriction BACKFIRED on them. Now they and about 30 or 40 or 60 other schools MUST SIT on the sidelines and Compete for LESSER GLORY than the NC TITLE. This is Totally Unnecessary and listen or read on :
I thought America had no ROYATY. Prince William gets to be King of England by doing nothing. He was BORN that WAY.
I think that Alabama is a Magnificent machine , a Great football team, but it has humans on its team. Humans Err. They are not Gods. No team Deserves the NC Game. You lose . YOU are out.
The SEC IS a truly powerful Conference. Three years ago the BCS robbed Oklahoma State which was 11-1 the chance to play in the NC TITLE. REmember They were 11-1. Alabama was awarded the game against TWO LOSS LSU.
Nothing FAIR ABOUT THAT. Oklahoma State Would have been CHOSEN in a real Playoff. OKLAHOMA UPSET Alabama last year. In a continuation of Genuine PLAY They WOULD have met Florida state. TREVOR KNIGHT against the Seminoles. Do you like the ODDS.
NO BCS. No 4 TEAM Playoff. But a 32 Team or 64 TEAM Playoff can work. Here is how:
First, Leave all FBS teams with the Fun and Reward of Playing the 30 plus Bowl Games. And 4 PLAYOFF BOWLS would be used on Jan 1 each year for the Elite 8 CFB playoff BOWLS.
And A $BILLION IN PLAYOFF MONEY In Gate receipt$, Hotel, tourist MONEY, Sueveniers and TRAVEL for the cities and Teams involved.

FACT: There are always 13 SATURDAYS in the 92 days of September thru November.
STEP ONE: Require all teams to finish their 12 GAMES by the END of NOVEMBER. There would be TIME for ONE OPEN DATE . Or TWO using the LAST SATURDAY in AUGUST.
STEP TWO: Have an NCAA selection committee PICK the TOP 32 Football Teams: FOUR Divisions would be set up:
East, South, Midwest, West.
Four Number One Seeds would be chosen in each Division and progressively on down: Number Two through Eight.
SEED Number One would play Number Eight, Number Two plays Number Seven and so on.
STEP THREE: SIXTEEN GAMES would be played ( 32 Chosen Teams) on the First Saturday in December. The SWEET SIXTEEN winners would play on the second Saturday in December.
STEP FOUR: The Elite Eight Winners are in the HIGHEST FOUR BOWLS called CHAMPIONSHIP BOWLS and would be played on New Years Day.
STEP FIVE: The FOUR QUARTER FINAL TEAMS play their TWO GAMES on January 8 or later.
STEP SIX : THE FINALS: 2 WINNERS would play a week later near January 17 for the NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP.
Conclusion: Only FOUR TEAMS would NEED to PLAY past the HOLIDAY Weekend of January the 1st. And the REST of the TEAMS could GO BACK TO their Studies and Classes.
Also: The 30 plus BOWLS are kept . The LOSERS in the FIRST or SECOND Round can PLAY again in any BOWLS but the FOUR CHAMPIONSHIP BOWLS and win and rejoin the Top Twenty five.
Remember any team LOSING in the FIRST or SECOND WEEK of the Playoffs could STILL be INVITED to ONE of the 30 plus bowls.
IF TEAMS THINK They are the BEST, then let them PROVE IT on the Battlefield of Play. ONE team out of the 32 Teams chosen will win 5 games in a row and be true National Champ.!!!
Thanks for reading . My main concern is that somewhere, somehow, in my lifetime an Unfair 4 TEAM Playoff will be abolished. Every 8-3 team in the top 40 or 65 Teams will have respect and a chance to win it all.
This will bring in $1 BILLION dollars or more to the Teams and their Schools.
Tim , in addition to the Mets moving the fences in, Can the Mets use this opportunity to move the stands back, down the lines approaching the foul pole, for a straight line for the stands, from home plate to foul pole , and give outfielders the same foul area as infielders, so we no longer have to see ,or can't see properly ,because of the angle of the stands sticking in, the braking outfielder chasing a ball , kicked around in the corner? Can the Mets management be told of this request and do it so the rest of the league will follow later?
The Witch Hunt goes on okay you have your opinion and opinions of those who have nothing to do with this case. So I say this, We're also told the form of discipline was "not impermissible." Under Texas law parents are allowed to administer reasonable punishment.

In the AP story, it says a source played a voicemail from April 9 that came from a phone number at the NFL offices, in which a female voice says the tape was received, expresses thanks and says: "You're right. It's terrible." The source could not tell AP for certain if anyone at the NFL offices had watched the video, and he had no further contact with any other NFL employees. The AP report said the source was unauthorized to release the video but "shared it unsolicited, because they wanted the NFL to have it before deciding on Rice's punishment." I said all along that GOODELL is guilty and deserves more that anybody hie is the reason for all of this in the first place and to think he asked RAY RICE to fall on the sword for him! BAN THE NFL!
