About

I cover live basketball and breaking news for B/R in addition to writing features and commentary for other outlets. I was born in New York and raised in Jersey City. I used to live in Ireland (where the craic is mighty) and earned my master's degree there at UC Dublin.

Aside from marrying my beautiful wife Aoife, the highlights of my life include, chronologically: Matt Bahr's fifth FG vs. the 49ers in '91, Norwood's missed FG in SB XXV, Starks dunking over Jordan and Horace Grant, Messier's guarantee for Game 6, Matteau's goal in Game 7, Richter stopping Bure's penalty shot in Game 4, Girardi's triple in '96, Jeff Van Gundy hanging from Alonzo Mourning's leg, Wells' perfect game, Tino's grand slam in '98, Jeter becoming Mr. November in '01, Tyree's catch in SB XLII, Damon stealing two bases in '09, Jeter's 3,000th hit, Ahmad Bradshaw backing into the end zone and Mo's farewell to Yankee Stadium.

    How can you call yourself a professional and take shots at the people of Wisconsin in your article. Also BJ Raji is far from a fan favorite here in the city of Green Bay. It is between Aaron Rodgers or Jordy Nelson.

    You are an idiot. If you actually paid attention to the Jacksonville Jaguars you would know that Cecil Shorts III is the fan favorite. Also, why would Shad Kahn be putting more than 60 million dollars of his own money to improve the stadium if he was going to just pick up and go across the pond. Please stop pretending to be an actual sports writer without knowing the facts. Also, please do not forget we are installing the largest video boards and implementing the reconstruction of the shipyards in Jacksonville. As a current resident and Jags fan, we are tired of the national media pretending to know what is going on in Jacksonville. I JUST WANT YOU TO KNOW THAT JAX IS ON THE RISE AND
    WE CAN'T WAIT TO SHOW UP ALL YOU LOW PAID SPORTS WRITERS. #DUVAL#IHOPEYOUQUITYOURJOB

    After engineering UConn's title run behind the superb play of Shabazz Napier and not much else,.........I think many of Uconns players stepped up during that run to the National Championship

    Maybe you should stick to strictly basketball with the ridiculous NFL mock draft you just wrote.

    hey if you could please endorse my petition i would really appreciate it. All it requires is you signing it you can fill out a fake name and email and it will still count as signing it for you. I really like your blog and worked really hard on this petition to really try and capture the mindset of the knicks fanbase as a whole so if you could please just shoot this around to everyone you know i'd really appreciate it.

    Don't want to upset you in anyway, but the article you wrote about B. Griffin getting posterized by Williams of Sacramento is completely false. I watched the game and Blake was trying to swat the lob away who was ahead of Williams. What's really messed up for the article is that the points didn't even count because of a foul call before the lob. But, a great article would have been how DeAndre Jordan got 9 blocks on the night and how he posterized D. Cousins. Or even how D. Cousins sportsmanship is not available for all NBA players. Cousins act on causing J.J Reddick a hard fall on his tailbone and not having any remorse to even ask if he's ok or apologize for anything.

    So, sorry for the long message.
