Meet The Blogger
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 couple of 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.
