The name is Brian Wagner. I was born in West Texas, but have now lived in Los Angeles for the past ten years. You could say I’m getting used to the perfect weather. I am currently a student at USC and am a huge Trojans fan, as you might have guessed.
I am a lifelong sports fan – and have been ever since my Dad groomed me to do so. But as of late, I have just created an interest for sports journalism. And a major one, in that.
I entered the blogosphere last Fall where I wrote about my experience with the USC Football Team: http://uscjimokes.blogspot.com/
Aside from writing at Bleacher Report, I am a USC staff writer at Real Clear Sports, where I publish The Purple Trojan: http://www.realclearsports.com/blognetwork/the_purple_trojan/
I have also joined The Sports Guys to post some articles. It's a great website with a great look! And a few other Bleacher Creatures are also writing over there too! http://www.sportsguysblog.com/
I am also a newly minted staff writer for the Daily Trojan, USC’s school newspaper.
With the assistance of Bleacher Report, I have been able to have some very successful articles published. I have been featured on CBS Sports (for my Mark Sanchez piece) and ESPN Sports Center. (for my Favre take)
I hope you enjoy my writing! And feel free to drop a dime to me at anytime…whether it be good or positive feedback. I love it all!
Don't forget! You can follow me on twitter: http://twitter.com/BrianRWagner
I am a sports fanatic.
My two favorite teams are USC Trojans (football) and the Minnesota Vikings. I devote my life to sports. But nothing gets my blood flowing more than the Purple & Gold…and Cardinal & Gold. Must be the Gold!
Literally, my life revolves around those two programs. And I am convinced before I die; I will see the Vikings hoist the Lombardi.
My Sports “Bucket List”
-Attend Super Bowl with Vikings in game
-Attend Game 7 of either World Series or NBA Finals
-Be in the gallery on the 18th of the Masters
-Attend BCS Championship Game with USC in game
-Attend all 3 Final Four games in same year
-Watch Red Sox/Yankee game at Fenway
-Watch UNC/Duke game
-Sit court-side at Lakers game in NBA Finals
Had to crawl out of my cave to weigh in on the Dodgers trade deadline deals - hope you find it worthy of your time.
Will be this postseason's ultimate x-factor??
One week into the baseball season and our Boys in Blue drag it back home black & blue - here's some visual evidence:

Have a new article just out of the oven looking at the Dodger starting pitching. Get it while it's hot!
