I've been covering professional and major college sports for the better part of 25 years. I started at the Bergen Record in New Jersey in the late 1980s, made a brief 18-month stop at the Detroit News in the early 1990s and spent 17 years at the Chicago Sun-Times where I was the Bulls' beat writer for the second three-peat.

I've been freelancing the last years, working mostly for the Associated Press and MLB.com.

Insight, commentary and entertaining writing are my strong suits and that's what this blog is all about.
