About

I am a father of one with a journalism degree and extensive writing background. I currently post and submit writings on all major sports with a focus mostly on the UFC, Canadian and Regional Mixed Martial Arts scene with some NHL (Toronto Maple Leafs) sprinkled in here and there.

I participated in many sports growing up including hockey, baseball, basketball, lacrosse and martial arts, but realized that I was in tough to make it and turned to writing about it instead. I've studied mixed martial arts from ten years old, with a specific interest in Bruce Lee and Jeet Kune Do, until I retired in 2005 because I was getting injured in practice and could not recover for my 9 to 5 job!

I still play hockey and baseball and I stay in shape for health, not because I'm training for my next big game!!

I hope you enjoy reading my articles and if you do, or even if you don't, give me a holler any time!

    Well good Sir, after the past few games, I must admit that you were right and I was DEAD WRONG when it came to Mark Fraser. Now tied for the league lead in +/- and has looked great on defense and on the PK, and he's always been in position.
