Hi, my name is Michael Desjardins. I'm a senior at Quinnipiac University, earning a degree in Broadcast Journalism with a minor in history.
I love just about every sport, especially football (both the professional and collegiate levels) and baseball. I am also an avid follower of wrestling.
When not watching games on television on the Internet or reading up on the latest news, I'm busy doing so much on campus. Besides the usual homework that every student has to muster through, I take part in a number of sports-related extracurricular activities. I write game recaps for both the Quinnipiac Chronicle newspaper and QBSN, the Quinnipiac Bobcats Sports Network, the university's online sports radio station; in addition, I have done both play-by-play and color commentary for the station. And if that's not enough, I also take part in Q30, our university's own television network; there, I am Assistant Producer, Panelist, and "Stat Guy" for the show "Bobcat Blitz," a show similar to ESPN's "Around the Horn."
And if even that's not enough, I just created a new sports blog that I write on occasion this July, and plan on blogging more. If you want to take a look, check out: http://thesportsshoutout.wordpress.com
When I'm not busy doing anything sports-related, I'll usually play games, either with my roommates or online. That, or just talk about sports even more!
Don't sweat it. Just think of it this way: When you're on the Internet, you're usually looking to browse things, right? Take that approach with your articles—obviously without cutting key content—by suspending sentences for emphasis when you feel they could be jump out while scanning an article.
