“You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take” Wayne Gretzky.

People usually remember their first day of school, first kiss, first time riding a bike and even their first love. Sports is my first love every since I can remember… watching Jordan and the 96 Bulls team or Kerry Wood 20 strikeouts in 98 or Slamming Sammy Sosa or even watching Brett Favre, Barry Sanders, and Randy Moss torch the Chicago Bears (sad times). My passion was inherited from my father. He was an advocate for the Bulls, Bears, and White Sox. In my eyes, sports are one of the few things in this world that bring people peace for a few seconds to a couple of hours. Whatever you’re stressing over or having conflicts with can be negated for those moments.

I just turned 27, working full time in downtown Chicago and also working part time at the fitness center of the University where I graduated from back in 2013. Besides watching or participating in sports, I’m usually on my Xbox, watching Netflix, educating myself in some way, or doing something adventurous with my girlfriend (i.e. at Sky Zone).

Over the years, my knowledge of sports expanded like DLC for Call of Duty. After familiarizing myself with the history of basketball, football, and baseball, I welcomed hockey, soccer, NASCAR, and others. At this point, I’m pretty much well rounded with enough knowledge in each to be respectable.

My friends will tell you that ESPN is my favorite channel, website, brand, and company. Working for ESPN has been a dream of mine since I was introduced to cable as a kid watching the late great Stuart Scott. I’ve always wanted to Stump the Schwab, report breaking news like Mark Stein and Adam Schefter, or just debate like Skip Bayless and Stephen A Smith. Working for ESPN would be a dream come true.

I have unwritten accolades about this and I want to share what I have with the world. My love for sports has made me part of who I am today and I live it.

Feel free to leave questions or comments about topics I should elaborate on.

  1. I can appreciate what you say; how sports can bring people peace of mind. I can recall how, many a summer night, my father and I would be listening to Ernie Harwell’s play-by-play on the radio. Though Dad died decades ago… my fond memories live on. Thanks for following my blog and I’ll be following yours, too.

  4. Plenty of sports this time of year. Enjoy and let your readers know if you watch and eat, or eat and watch. Also, how do [can] the plays, coaching strategies, and “true” teamwork spill over into real life “winning” situations??? Happy Holidays!

  5. Thank you for stopping by my humble site. I am honored that you want to follow my writing (seriously, I feel honored). I’m not a huge sports fan, although I do watch PGA golf most weekends. I’m originally from Texas and consequently follow the Dallas Cowboys ( …you can’t take Texas out of the Texan). If you have time, please leave comments on any of my post that grab your attention. BTW—I’ll be following you now.

    1. I most definitely will leave comments. Your Cowboys are a serious contender so I hope they can make the best of their opportunity. I played 3 years of golf in high school so I always appreciate the PGA Tour whenever​ I get a chance to watch.
