I grew up in Texas (small town an hour east of Houston) and joined the Navy right out of high school. Been married to my wife, Susan, for 18+ years and we have four awesome kids.

I love to play, teach, watch, and talk golf! I'm partners with a good friend in a golf shop here in Greeley and I play about 60-65 rounds per year. It's one plus to my schedule at my regular job (power plant operator).

Above all, I love the Lord. My walk with God is of primary importance to me, and if any of you are open to hearing about that I would love to speak more with you.

    Next up in the Joel's MLB Franchise Top 10 series is the Rockies. Take a look when you get a chance.

    Haven't heard much from you lately, but hope you're enjoying the good baseball the Rockies have been playing.

    Not sure if you're a college baseball fan, but here’s my latest piece about the College World Series.

    The student-athletes play with youthfulness and excitement and it’s sad that college baseball doesn’t get very much recognition.

    Look forward to reading more of your stuff about the Rockies in the future.

    Hey, Bob!

    My analysis on who would be the better player to franchise around, the SDSU pitcher Stephen Strasburg, or the LVHS catcher, Bryce Harper.

    Hey, Bob!

    If you could take a look at that and leave me a comment, I would really appreciate it! =)

    Hey Bob,

    People of my generation look at them fondly as the players they watched as little kids, people of other generations may just look at them as great players. I created a slide show highlighting the best players of the 1990's. If you get a chance, take a look, I'd appreciate it. Thanks.

    Hey Bob,

    An article I wrote up about why I think the Cardinals will be just as successful this year as they were last year.

    Hey Bob,

    There was a touching moment in the Mariners game last night, made possible by the best pitcher I've ever gotten to watch - Randy Johnson. Watching history unfold inspired to me take a look at his incredible career and count down his five best moments, in my eyes. If you get a chance, take a look at it, I'd appreciate it. Thanks a lot.

    Nice job. It was a very good recap.

    Ya she seemed really nice. I had fun with it. It was a lot easier covering a whole team like what the Trib wanted rather than what the Denver Post usually asks for. On day one they want me to basically predict who will go far in Nos. 2 or 3 singles and write a feature about them. It's doable, just a lot more difficult. You have to make sure they win their first match, then talk with them, write some of the article and pray they win their second match (even though, as a sports journalist, you can't root for anyone).

    Hey Bob,
    I wrote an article for them last week. I think it ran on the May 8. Check it out let me know what you think. It wasn't my best, but they just wanted something about the team.

    Where at in Texas? I was born in Huntsville.
