As you can see my name is Daine Pavloski. I grew up watching SportsCenter every morning as I enjoyed my Cinnamon Toast Crunch before school. I continued to love sports through my younger years, watching my dad coach high school basketball and watching my older brother play sports.
When I was finally of age I started playing football, basketball, and baseball at Rudyard High School in the Eastern Upper Peninsula (The UP) so I am indeed a Yooper born and raised.
After a few ankle injuries and all possibility of a future of playing sports was gone I decided to do the next best thing; sports journalism. I began writing a sports column for EUPnews.com during my summers at home in the UP and started Off The Bench, a sports talk show on campus at Olivet College. From there I eventually became the sports director at WOCR 89-1 FM and act as the play-by-play announcer for Olivet College athletics while taking every opportunity I could to talk about, write about, or read about sports with anyone that would listen.
That's awesome! I actually know 2 guys on the soccer team and 1 who WAS (I believe) on the football team. He may not be there anymore.
Soccer - Camden Iwasko and Matt Garza
Football - T.J. Price.
Any names ring a bell?
You went to Olivet? I have a few friends who play soccer and football there! Nice to meet another Michigander.
Dude, Im not going to lie. I thought your name was "Diane". Lol
Daine. Write more stuff. You are the best.
Hey Daine, love your 7 curious facts series. Keep up the great articles! The one involving Ziggler doesn't seem to be up any more though. Any chance of a re post of?
Can you check out the comments to your latest mock draft? I don't understand why the Rams would draft a left tackle a week after signing Jake Long. Unless I'm missing something, Saffold will go to right tackle. Did you hear something about him going to guard? Please let me know what's up. Thanks.
When is your next fun facts coming?
I really enjoy your fun facts about the various WWE Superstars!
I was going to write a comment for your piece on Wilson (Russell had 385 yards passing and two touchdowns which broke an NFL rookie postseason record, but I feel like you know that already) but Dale summed it up well enough.
If I were you I'd write a follow up if you respect your credibility as a writer, and admit your lack of knowledge on Wilson and the type of player and leader he is. Instead of just ignoring your article and hoping that it will go away.
Have a wonderful day,
Hey, Daine. Just read the excellent (snark) piece you wrote before the game between the Falcon's and Seahawks regarding how Russell Wilson would be the reason the Seahawks would lose the game. Given such a bone-headed analysis, I thought I would check your archives to see if you manned up with another article that acknowledged how unbelievably wrong you were in your analysis.
Not seeing that follow-up piece, Daine. How come? You've found time to write plenty since you published that piece. Don't you think it high time to acknowledge how badly wrong you were? Maybe you can salvage a bit of credibility and maybe even some self-esteem if you were to go back and review what you missed during the season that showed Russell Wilson was a much better player than you gave him credit for. By your silence in acknowledging how vapid your piece was, I take it that you have neither desire for neither credibility nor self-esteem.
