About

Dear Bleacher Report Visitors,

Welcome to my profile page!

I am originally from Bulgaria, Europe, but have now lived in the United States for over 7 years. I have always been a big fan of sports in general, but used to only like the ones popular in Europe such as soccer, Formula 1 racing, tennis, volleyball, and hockey. The exception was NBA basketball which I followed as a kid while MJ was still playing and later became a Lakers fan because of Magic and Shaquille O'Neal.

Over the past 7 years I completely adopted a liking for all major American sports, and my favorite teams gravitate around the state of Wisconsin, which is where I spent the first 4 and a half years of my stay here. I also learned to like college sports more than professional ones, with the exception of football where this will likely happen after a playoff system is introduced.

I still remember my first baseball game - it was against the Houston Astros at Miller Park in Milwaukee in the summer of 2004. My love for sports and my interest in numbers and statistics quickly converted me to a baseball fan, maybe even before I eventually realized that I had become a big Brewers fan along the way.

My other passion related to the industry is the business of sports and the way the surrounding environment affects a sports franchise and the sport and entertainment industry in general. You can expect to see many columns covering the business aspects of sports.

You may wonder what my current occupation is and I will not hide that I currently work in a field that does not have anything to do with journalism or business, but writing, sports, and the business environment are my hobbies and you never know what that might turn into someday.

Throughout my contribution as a columnist I will be happy to receive feedback regarding my work from readers, fans or editors. I look forward to hearing your opinions, even if they differ from my own. I thank you in advance for your interest in my columns, as well as for visiting the Bleacher Report site. I hope you are here for the long ride and enjoying every minute of it.

    I am in the middle of a series in which I am naming who I feel are the top ten players in each MLB franchise's history. This one is on the Brewres, take a look when you get a chance and let me know what you think of my choices.
