I am a passionate sports fan born and raised in Philadeldelphia. My first real sports memory is the night in march of 1985 when Villanova upset Georgetown to win the NCAA tournament. My father is a sports fanatic himself as well as a Villanova alumni and my love for Villanova basketball was cemented for life that night by his joy and enthusiasm. We still attend men's basketball games together to this day over 20 years later. I was a season ticket holder for the Eagles in the 700 level at the Vet, even through some of the roughest Ty Detmer & Rodney Pete years. The 1993 Phillies team was the first time I can remember the excitement of having my team one series away from a title; and the first time I experienced the cruelty of losing that battle. It came again when the Flyers were swept by Detriot in 1997 for the Stanley Cup, and when the 76ers, won game 1 of the NBA Finals against Kobe and Shaq's Lakers, and then promptly dropped the next 4 and lost. Recently the Flyers made it to the Eastern Conference Finals, and couldn't defeat the Penguins. The Phillies finally brough a title to Philadelphia in 2008 and I witnessed the Championship Ceremony from the Press Box at Citizen's Bank Park. Last season the Villanova Wildcats made a magical run to the Final Four. I want a Super Bowl--is this the year? I want another World Series title--is next year the season we repeat? I want a deep run into the NCAA Tournament in March for the Villanova Wildcats and UMASS Minutemen--will they live up to my expectations? Can the new look Sixers win an NBA title? Can the Flyers bounce back and make a run at the Stanley Cup? Somewhat foolishly, I believe the answer to every question above is the same: YES
I work and live in downtown Philadelphia, PA. In addition to reporting on sports I also cover music related news for www.independentphilly.com as well as own, and provide the content for the wildly popular site: www.spoonfulloftruth.blogspot.com (please check them both out).
I also work as a photographer/artist and stand up comedian.

Hey David just wrote a piece on what has gotten Villanova this far.

Great to see another Nova fan around. Good to see you David, and I would appreciate if you check some of mine out.
I wrote a review of the second half of the madness at the Wach Center last night.
Thanks for the note, David!
It should be a great season for the Big East this year - lot's of great conference match-ups and some great non-conference games to look forward to as well!
