About

Dave Finocchio is the Founder/GM of Bleacher Report.

His most depressing sports moments:

1. Roger Craig fumbles against the NY Giants in 1990-91 NFC Championship game. Late 4th quarter in Giants territory with Niners up 13-12. The 49ers lost a chance to 3-peat. I cried, hard.

2. Tom Watson, age 59, flies his 7-iron three-yards too far on the 72nd hole of the 2009 British Open. His life-long nemesis, the putter, lets him down on a medium-length par putt. Stuart Cink, failing to see the big picture, defeats Watson in a four-hole playoff. I didn't cry. I was too upset for tears. No sports event sucked the life out of me more than this one.

3. Game 6 of the 2013 NBA Finals. The San Antonio Spurs are one of the great dynasties in NBA history, and they're one play away from getting their historical just due. And then Tim Duncan watched his team fail to collect a rebound from the bench. Tony Parker, one of the era's most dominant players, as much of a game-changer on offense as Lebron, Durant, Kobe, but without the regular season stats and accolades, is stuck in 2nd tier recognition limbo. I watch every one of this guy's games as I watched Michael Jordan, knowing you'll never see another like him. He's that special. I didn't cry. I just got really, really disgusted.

4. Grant Hill, Antonio Lang and Duke can't hold a 10 point lead against Arkansas in the 1994 National Championship game. I loved Grant Hill. Last time I cried during a sports event.

    During the 2011 NBA lockout, Lebron, Wade, Melo, and CP3 were going to do a basketball tour sponsored by Google before the lockout ended. The tour never happened but they sat down for an interview for it which was never released. At the time I was working at Google as a video editor and saved the raw interview footage which was very funny and I just cut into a mix video for Lebron and Wade's time together in Miami.

    Check it out on YouTube. http://youtu.be/0DLJ-IoyL8w

    I love bleacher report but it is shame you don't have article about USF in the AAC with the type of recruiting they had today the major topic is about a 3 star player going to UCONN seriously. USF is the top 40 recruiting class and getting over looked

    Hi i'm a new member of BR but i have been reading articles on this website for a couple years now. I am a very big sports fan, and being Canadian, I am inherently most interested in the NHL. I was just wondering how some of the NHL writers got their jobs because I read some of the articles they put out, and they are pretty inaccurate. I believe I could do a much better job. Hopefully you will see this, and maybe even agree with me. If so I would be willing to write an NHL article for our website.
