I'm looking to get a sports writing career, or at least hobby, on its feet and running here at Bleacher Report. I will be publishing a lot for the Badger football team as well as Big Ten coverage. I hope to contribute throughout the site as well.
I'm a native of Wisconsin and my fandom represents that, aside from Tottenham and Pittsburgh. I became a Tottenham fan when a roommate began rooting for Arsenal. Naturally I had to root for the rival London club. I became a Pittsburgh Penguins fan when Lemieux came back from cancer. I couldn't bring myself to root for any of the hockey teams in the same cities as Packer rivals and found myself a generic NHL fan, until le Magnifique made his return.
Hey, I just wanted to respond to your message on my wall. I live about an hour away from UW, and go to school at UW-Platteville, so I've grown up watching and loving the Badgers. Your article was great, to me, because it really shows how good of a person these guys are, even if they do stand out quite a bit. While I'm not a Badger myself, I still enjoy hearing about the team, and more especially, the players. Keep up the good work, and best of luck to you and your writing career.
