I know, I know. I've aged poorly.
I also know that neither you or I actually believe that.
So, I started getting into sports at the age of three. It took me Felix Trinidad fights and 'Stone Cold' Steve Austin's presence to get me to shut up. I began to follow every sport shortly thereafter.
My dad used to bring home the New York Daily News, and even at four or five I'd go straight to the sports section. I'd make up my own box scores, which led to creating my own short stories about made up characters, who I'd later portray in video games.
I started with Sportsblog on May 31, 2013 after my freshman year of college, joined the St. Francis College Student Newspaper in 2014, and the rest is HSTRY, as Nas would say.
I've been nominated for a number of different awards throughout the course of my career so far.
Still in the running for a few of them, too.
