I graduated from Valparaiso University in May 2010 with a degree in political science. While at VU, I wrote sports for the student newspaper, The Torch, contributed to the sports staff at the radio station, and had a sports talk show. In December 2009, I did a 12-hour radio marathon.
I have a deep passion for sports and journalism. I'm early in my swim up the long, vast river that is the journalism field. I'm a featured columnist for the Memphis Grizzlies. In addition to blogging for Bleacher Report, I've served as an editing intern.
I'm the editor of the Kanza News, the tribal newsletter of Kaw Nation, a Native American tribe headquartered in Kaw City, OK.
Also, I'm a runner. I've run four marathons, finishing three.
Please follow @TFirme on Twitter. (https://twitter.com/#!/TFirme) I like talking sports with people.
Thanks for catching that, Tom. Appreciate your help.
Hey Tom Firme, I know you're a Grizz fan, but your predictions were ridiculous dude.
If you're bias, you can't be an NBA writer. I'm severely biased towards my Spurs, so I don't write articles about them. Spurs are going to beat the Grizz in 6 and Game 1 just proved it......
Grizz had a great season though!!!
Looks like it got an edit. Your Grizzlies are looking awesome. Best frontcourt in the league, and Conley has been great too. Should be a great series.
I see that you're a big fan of the Grizz, and I'd love if you could stop by a site that I work on and make the Grizzlies' pick for them in our fan interactive mock draft! Thanks!

make a list of the grizzlies team if they hadn't made terrible draft decisions in the past decade.
IE - Steph Curry/ James Harden over Hasheem Thabeet, not trading away Kevin Love for OJ Mayo, etc. Its interesting to see how dominant the grizzlies could have been.
You're welcome, Tom!
What happened to Darrell? I thought that you may have had an idea since you posted that comment on his page. Didn't always get along with the guy, but he could be interesting at times.
What happened to Darrell?????

"Too bad Darrell had to go. I enjoyed reading his stuff as much as any other writer on B/R. He was different. He presented different angles from what others would present. Darrell loves his teams and shows it with a critical eye. I'll miss reading his stuff. " - You
