I love to write, and I love sports, baseball and basketball in particular. It seems like working here is a good fit. As a senior at the University of Vermont, writing is a great outlet for the creativity not always required by my accounting and statistics courses (those are my two majors). My athletic resume consists of power soccer which is the fastest growing sport for power wheelchair users.

Just fanned you!
I disagree with you that Cleveland is not a baseball town. Between June 12, 1995 and April 4, 2001, the Indians sold out 455 consecutive home games, drawing a total of 19,324,248 fans to Jacobs Field. The demand for tickets was so great that all 81 home games were sold out before Opening Day on at least three separate occasions. The sellout streak set a Major League Baseball record; this was broken by the Boston Red Sox on September 8, 2008. They were also the first team in MLB to draw over 2,000,000 fans in a season drawing 2,620,627 in 1948 and 2,233,771 in 1949. From 1996 to 2001 they drew over 3,000,000 fans a year.
Thanks for the compliment!
Thanks for fanning me! Little things like that are so encouraging. I appreciate it, Zak.
Hey Zak, thanks for being a fan of mine! I really appreciate it because I like most of your work a lot. I've "fanned" you right back, btw.
Thanks for the helpful response. My problem was that I was just pasting it into the body of the article instead of the HTML box.
Hey Zak, how did you get your twitter button to display in your article? Mine doesn't seem to be working: http://bleacherreport.com/articles/1261613-mlb-trade-rumors-are-the-atlanta-braves-pursuing-an-ace
I think it's rediculous that you tell the Twins to start selling...They are 10 games under.500 and 8.5 games back BUT The pitching rotation has come around and They have a line up consisting up 2 former MVPs....I mean they have more of a shot than teams that you claimed had a chance...THEY HAVE ALSO WON 10 OF THEIR LAST 12!
Zak thanks man! I just wrote one about 5 Things That Will Happen in Rio at UFC 134.. Love to hear what you think man. http://bleacherreport.com/articles/821324-ufc-134-5-things-that-will-happen-in-rio-de-janeiro
