What do you love about sports the most?
The thing I like most about sport is snatching victory from jaws of defeat. The feeling that even when the chips are down anything is possible and rooting for the underdog. What can I say I’m a Philly kid Rocky is etched in my soul.
Why is writing about sports important to you?
Sportswriting is important to me because it is a way for me to share my opinion with others and maybe lend a voice to those who feel voiceless even in today’s social media heavy world
What is your greatest sporting memory?
My greatest sports memory is without a doubt the final pitch of the 2008 world series. The words of the immortal Harry Kalas will echo in my heart forever. “Swing and a miss, struck him out! And the Phillies are world champions of baseball!”
If there was ONE outcome to a game you could change in your lifetime, what would it be and why?
If I could change the outcome to one game, it would have to be the 2002 NFC Championship game. The last game played in Veteran’s Stadium. I grew up with that building terrible turf, shakey steps, obnoxious fans and all. To see it’s legacy ended by team we had pummeled year after year was heartbreaking.
